Stepping Out In Faith

21 Sep

In Case You’re Wondering Where I Went… 🙂

Your Support Matters

Welcome!

Last week I had what I believe are life-changing experiences at a healing conference at Mott Auditorium in Pasadena and a revival at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. One really excellent thing is that I shared Jesus with a man named Alfonso. After spending nearly three hours with him we went our separate ways. During that time he accepted Jesus into his heart after we talked about Revelation 3:20:

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” RSV

I am really enthusiastic and encouraged that God used me in that way. I’ll share more about my adventures in future posts.

I’ve awakened to new ideas for my life moving forward. I hope for your support and the support of people you know as I move forward…

Found On The Road To Yosemite!

4 Aug

My wife and I drove to Yosemite and stopped the night in Mammoth so we could have a shorter drive the next morning and enter the park from the north. She considers the “top” entrance a feast for the eyes. I’ll share more in a future post.

We both enjoyed a radio station from Mammoth that I would call a feast for the ears!

I hope you like it.

The New Phonebook’s Here!

19 Jun

In case you’re interested, the title of this post is a classic bizarre line from what is now a classic comedy movie.

Once upon a time in a life far, far away I saw that absurdly funny comedy, The Jerk, several times. So many times that I won’t say. In fact, I’m fairly sure that I have viewed The Jerk more than any other movie, including my favorites, Lawrence of Arabia, Groundhog Day & Lord of the Rings.

Hit The Gym Before I’m Stranded

27 May

My wife and I just got back from a great workout at L.A. Fitness. We both had our new fat-burning bar before we left and I just had some electrolyte drink before I sat down to write. Later my wife and son will take both cars and I’ll be “stranded”.

So today I decided to do it right and I weighed myself before my 55 minutes on the elliptical trainer. Wow. 287.

We all have to start somewhere.

I got into a conversation with Bruce, a retired coach, who has been following the same regimen for 11 months. He looks to be in great shape and I wondered if he was in the military or retired from it. He definitely has short hair and is soft-spoken. I told him I thought maybe he was a colonel.

We’ll probably talk again as my guess is he’s a regular and I’ll be soon.

Yesterday I was reading about adenosine and the human body. It’s pretty amazing what some people have discovered. I think a lot of people can’t relate to what it takes to make these kinds of breakthroughs. I’m going to reread the material, but I think the professor who came up with this fat-burning bar spent 17 years developing it.

If you’re an average, non-academic person you probably haven’t heard of stuff like this or you’re skeptical.

But, how many of us have spent that long trying to figure something out? And I don’t mean marriage or parenthood or faith. I mean concentrated effort for a very long time to figure out how humans burn fat or create heat in certain conditions and whether or not we can alter that in a safe way.

That’s some serious science. This isn’t sociology (No offense, Kraig and others.)

How the human body works in specific areas has been something of a mystery to me. Probably to you, too.

Many of us have had biology and know about cells and getting Vitamin D from the sun (though I had to look it up to make sure I had the right vitamin – I didn’t) and information along those lines. When you get too specific I couldn’t tell you very much about vitamins and minerals except what others have told me. And then you have to stop and think, “Are they right?”

Look what I found in Wikipedia (Bear with me as I trust it in this case) – Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate.

I don’t know what a secosteroid is but I can look it up. I don’t think that’s the most important thing here, though.

I really enjoy when I found out what something DOES and HOW it works.

Vitamin D is responsible for intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate. (Yes. I will look it up somewhere else to be sure at some point.)

So what does this have to do with the bar my wife and I ate before we worked out today?

I’m still learning, but by consuming the fat-burning bar we started our body burning the calories in the bar and then we started burning fat earlier than our bodies would have otherwise.

Apparently, it also lessens the “burn” from the workout.

I know that this is just the first time and I’m sure some or a lot of it was water, but I weighed myself after my workout with the same stuff in my pockets on the same scale in the men’s locker room and I weighed 284. 55 minute workout. 3 pounds DOWN! I’m pretty sure the ingredients are pure stuff, too.

I even like the taste!

Hopefully, Bruce and I (and you?) will compare our progress as time goes by. It’s too soon to tell, but maybe, just maybe, we might develop some little bit of community or neighborhood.

I believe it’s ok for me to say, “I’m lovin’ it!” even though I have only rarely eaten at that iconic place for decades.

Oh, yeah.

Contact me if you want to burn more fat faster. My phone number is on my Facebook public figure page and there’s a huge link down the right side of this blog.

Creative Community In Las Vegas

24 May

I just found this article from the New York Times Magazine late last year. People are intentionally building better communities and neighborhoods all over the world. Creative change in a neighborhood, community, city or county make take many different forms.

Tony Hsieh (pronounced SHAY), CEO of Zappos, is the driving force behind changing a community in Las Vegas. Read about it here.

Organic Quinoa & Brown Rice With Garlic

21 May

2013-05-21 15.00.12

Costco has a great deal. Today I tried their Seeds of Change brand Quinoa & Brown Rice and I loved it. I added some pistachios, but next time I’ll try it all by itself.

Six packages for $10.99 and it is yummy. Each package is 480 calories which is two servings. Or eat the whole thing because 480 calories is reasonable for one meal. So the price per package is $1.83. And it’s organic!

Quality at a great price. And, no, this isn’t an advertisement. I just want to let you know about some great deals every so often. Quinoa & Brown Rice from Costco is officially Charlie-approved!
