Thanks for having me on the show @wodcastpodcast !!! @cfinvoke @crossfit @reebok #relentlesslife (at CHRISTMASABBOTT.CO)
- Jonathan, 55: There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
- Miranda, 24: Drop pre-med.
- Isaac, 48: Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
- Anya, 42: Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
- Parker, 55: 60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
- Megan, 34: He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
- Peter, 58: Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
- Eleanor, 67: Talk less. Listen more.
- Donald, 27: There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
- Camille, 56: Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
- Jackson, 57: No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
- Vicki, 47: You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
- Donald, 38: You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
- Katelyn, 30: Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
- Joshua, 55: Women love to laugh.
- Annabelle, 38: Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
- Colin, 50: You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
- Eleanor, 26: Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
- Aaron, 52: Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
- Scarlett, 54: Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
- Zack, 9: I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.

First, consider what you DO like. What seasonings are on those foods?
Don’t like veggies? Chances are, you don’t like nasty, boring, boiled/canned veggies. Get yourself some fresh veggies, cut them up all pretty and saute them together. Maybe you don’t like to eat broccoli. But maybe if you saute some red onions in olive oil, toss in some mushrooms, a yellow bell pepper and some broccoli… you might just love it. Let flavors mingle.
Don’t be afraid of food that isn’t “bursting with flavor”. That shit’s not natural, son! You need to get used to the fact that flavor, real flavor, is often subtle. Sure, there are some foods that are amazingly flavorful, but chances are, you’ll need to learn to cook with spices and learn what foods mix well together in order to get more of that flavor intensity so many people seem to be obsessed with.
Don’t be afraid to add fats or salts in moderation to your meals. Avocado, olive oil, cheese, sour cream… all those things (in their normal, not low/no fat versions) are quite healthy and will add a lot of flavor. Humans are hardwired for survival. Fat and calories are what allowed us to survive. That’s why we crave them. That’s why they taste the best. You don’t have to remove them from your diet, just moderate them. Learn the ones that you can and cannot eat responsibly. If you know that just having it in the house is putting you at risk of scarfing the entire package… best to just leave it at the super market.
Don’t be afraid to try new things. Sometimes new things try you. Like when I thought I was grabbing the pepper grinder, but instead I grabbed the cinnamon sugar grinder and put it all over my salmon. I made it work. And it was actually GOOD! I made it more than once! Tuna and kiwi sauce. Chicken and ginger, Pork and apple glaze. Mix sweet and savory. Play with textures. What’s the worst that could happen?
Be brave in the kitchen! It’s a lot of fun!!
just a lazy simple backtuck.
didn’t land back on take off but meh, was trying new technique for height.
@ifbbksneuman: #tbt to just a few weeks before my first pro show!!!!!! #wpd #ifbb #tampapro #contestprep aghhhh I miss that look! It’s onnnnnn! #bigbootyjudy #iaintmadatthat @lonestarsport #teamlonestar #lonestarathlete
I find one of the biggest problems today is #quantity of food.
When I grew up everyone kept telling me to ‘finish my plate’ when in reality you should STOP when you are full.
Make one change today -go for flavours not mass!
Part of a #healthy #liftestyle is learning to say NO!
Being a #gym and #workout friend big portions are NOT going to get me to my goal!
Be true to your #hunger and #love it and #fill it but don’t #kill it!
