TB1984 There were times in my life when I wore a Norma Kamali swimsuit at the beach. Photo credit to German photographer, Gert Leismeister, who passed early 2000. (Taken at Manhattan Beach CA.) He was returning to Germany in a few days and asked if he could take a few shots for his professional portfolio. Gert was such a gentleman, so I said yes. Most of you who know me know solo photos are not my thing.

as you may have gathered by now
I'm a certified Primal Health Coach.
Now what is is Primal exactly you may be asking
well........ over the next few post I will give you a little history on what it is and what it can and has done for people over the past decade or so.
the Primal Blueprint.
The Primal Blueprint is the book where it all stems from.
This book was authored by a guy call Mark Sisson.
Mark Sisson used to be an elite level triathlete.
Since finishing with competition he has undertaken a journey of discovery using himself as the subject of a personal experiment.
He has read extensively on all things health, exercise, dietary and wellness related.
Over the years Mark has not been afraid to alter his path or admit when things have been wrong.
He is able to do this because he reviews as much evidence as he can get his hands on.
The Primal Blueprint is constantly being updated and tweaked as new evidence comes to light.
He lives and embodies the lifestyle he has brought into the mainstream.
As you can see from the pictures,
there's a significant difference in body composition from his athlete days to where he is now.
Personally I also aim to improve myself as I get older and not use age as an excuse to whither and die.
I'm sure you'll agree,
it seems to work fine for him
Not in bad shape for an 'old' fella..... Why not you......? Give it a go!
What do you hold back on doing due to fear? Waiting to begin or finish doing something due to fear of it not being good enough denies the world 🌎 of your wonderful contributions and talent! .
Sometimes we are our own worst critics and the fear of not being good enough holds us back from speaking up or sharing our talents with the world 🌎 Nobody is perfect. We are all beautifully perfectly imperfect and sharing what we have to share whether it be perfect or not is better than holding back... Beauty lies in the imperfections. So today get off the fence and bravely step outside your comfort zone and share a gift 🎁 with the world 🌎 that you have been holding onto, whatever it may be!.
As an example I held off on starting this social media channel for years even though I had the burning desire to inspire and help others. It wasn't until one day when I just got tired of seeing others doing the very things I had dreamed of doing and realizing that the only thing that separated us was just the simple act of doing. Besides even if you are stuck in perfectionistic ways, the only way to truly perfect anything is to just get going and keep working at it.. For instance waiting to go to the gym until you have lost weight or have a perfect body denies you of the health you deserve! I guarantee you that all those perfect bodies gym types have before pictures that would surprise you 😜everyone begins somewhere so just go for it! Perfection comes from doing and practice, practice, practice!
After all the best of intentions never helps anyone if there's no action behind them! So thank you for taking this leap of faith with me and being there at the beginning as I courageously build this Staying Young At Heart 💜community with you!
I don't have time to eat well
It costs too much to make something healthy and tasty
I can't be bothered
Blah blah blah
Usually made by people who if they are honest with themselves are looking for excuses and don't really want it enough.
They want the end result.... Don't we all
The trouble is they just want the magic pill or simple, fast solution.
Unfortunately for most people
It doesn't come easily
However if you make small adjustments to your daily routines and then follow those adjustments with a few more and follow these consistantly, you will find your goals get closer and easier to attain.
With this in mind take a look at the photo,
One simple adjustment you can make to start with
Bulk buy some pre made pastes.
These tend to contain minimal offensive ingredients especially at the amounts you actually use.
Then all you need to do is add them to your veggies, meat etc
Very quick hassle free tasty food.
Costs penny's per meal and lasts for ages when kept in the Fridge.
One simple solution to help you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
No gimmicks just forethought and common sense.
Hit me up for more advice if you're interested.
Physical Age vs. Chronological Age
The popular fitness concept of contrasting chronological age with a physical fitness marker commonly described as "physical age" clearly illustrate how fitness and healthy lifestyle habits correlate with ageing.
Fitness pioneer Jack LaLanne was described as having "the body of a 21-year-old" even as an octogenarian because he could perform physical work efforts on par with a fit youth in peak physical condition. Inactivity can hasten the demise of organs to the extent that one's physical age again supersedes chronological age but in the wrong direction.
Its obvious how inactivity can hasten ageing but it can also be argued that chronic exercise or other forms of overly stressful exercise can have a destructive and accelerated ageing effect similar to that of sedentary living.
For all fitness activities, there is an optimal pattern of volume, intensity and frequency of workout that allows an individual to enjoy exceptional health, delay the ageing process and minimise risk factors.
Abusing the muscles, organs and energy systems of the body with extreme and/or destructive physical activity counteracts the beneficial effects of a more sensible active lifestyle.
