I'm going to be honest - I've fallen and I can't get up, but I'm trying. I'm talking about eating as clean as you can as often as you can. It's hard being a stone-cold fox with little ones at home but my dear friend Steph does it like a P.I.M.P. So after seeing her this weekend I renewed my vows to keep it clean (it's the afterwork part of the day that gets me) and already I've got more energy, I feel happy and strong like bull.

It's funny but we eat crap as a treat but it's no treat at all. You're left feeling bloated, burnt out and down. How is that a treat? Answer: It's not.

So what am I having for dins tonight with the family... a little Asparagus Heaven.

Parkdale Street Art While in Bali last April I had a wonderful chat with a friend, I'll be damned if I can remember who it was and maybe in fact it was many conversations tied into one lasting message. So the idea was this, when you're feeling stuck, sad or disappointed try imagining the universe (I'm calling it) has presented this to you as a challenge. Let me give you a current example. I went through a breakup early on this year, I didn't really see it coming though hindsight is 20/20. I've spent much time wallowing but I keep coming back to this idea of the universe presenting me with this situation as a test. If that were true, because it could be as much as it couldn't be, how would I approach things differently? Well I might start by accepting that this part of my life has passed, since that takes time to sink in. Next I might reflect on what I learned, how am I better because of the this person, what parts of the relationship did I like and what didn't I like. In that way I gain a clearer perspective of what I want going forward. I have applied this thinking to some tough situations and believe it truly fuels progress. I guess I need there to be a point and I feel comfortable with the experience being the point. Have a wonderful weekend, go live some life!

Take the three minutes to watch, and then maybe another three minutes to ponder. Don't be scared, it won't hurt...
