My Vision For Ganifit Over The Next 3-5 Years.

After recently achieving my goal of weighing 135 pounds (gaining roughly 10 pounds of muscle) I have decided that my new goal is going to be something that to me is really epic.

After gaining this muscle, I noticed that for myself I would love to be able to take the next few years working up to somewhere around 165 pounds of lean muscle.  I feel that the next 3-5 years of testing trial and error, as well as putting on this amount of muscle that I will be able to gain enough knowledge and experience to one day help you not only achieve your goal, but to also help you realize that your goal is achievable even if it looks far away.

Right now gaining 30 pounds seems nearly impossible, but for myself I see it as possible to be achieved because my "why" is big enough.

Gaining an extra 30 pounds means that I will be literally adding 1/4 of my current bodyweight to myself.

I am hoping that by gaining this 30 lbs of muscle naturally, that it will be used as a way to influence billions of people to achieve their dream body, whatever that may be.  And that my story of coming from being overweight by 25 pounds, to losing that fat, to currently gaining another 30 pounds of muscle will, in the future, be of tremendous benefit to you reading this right now.

The second big thing I am going to achieve for my body is flexibly.  Over the years I have always been neglecting stretching, and I deal with a lot of my muscles being extremely tight (mostly all my leg muscles and occasionally my back).

I know that down the road, if I don't change this that it will end up leading to pain in my body that I wouldn't like to have as I get older.

My flexibility is another area of my body that needs a lot of work, but I know I can loosen up some of that tension by stretching and incorporating yoga into my routine at least 3 days per week (or more) for now.

I am hoping that by following along with my monthly physique updates, that they will act as inspiration for you to achieve your own unique fitness goals, whatever they may be.

Whether you are just starting out or have been on a journey of your own I know that the vision I hold for Ganifit will be of massive value and impact for your life.

I know that we all come from different walks of life, and we all have different fitness journey's.  But wherever you are, whatever your goals are, I am hoping you connect with my story and that my story is able to help and guide you along your own unique journey.

Closing thoughts.

I have already been taking action on these goals as I was writing this blog.  And I can say that having a goal this big for my weight has been helping me take more action in the gym during my workouts.  So far I have been implementing 1 extra set for even single exercise I do in the gym, which I hope in time will bring better and faster results.

I wrote this in hopes that you will follow along for the next few years.  Make the journey your own, learn from what I do, maybe learn what to do and what not to do, but follow along and lets continue on our journey's together!

Live your life to the fullest,

Bodybuilding Journey Physique Update 2.

Today I want to share with you my second physique update blog.  I am going to share with you the good and the bad that I have noticed over the past month and a half or so, and what I am going to continue doing and what I am going to change.

First I would like to start off with the good.  

I have noticed an overall improvement in my physique.  Mainly in my arms and legs.  Which used to be the hardest muscles for me to grown.  Now that I have been trying different exercises, I have been able to find out what is working best for growth in these areas.

This is going to be very helpful along my journey as I will be able to not only grow my limbs faster than before, but hopefully give you some useful ways to grow yours faster as well!

The bad

The one muscle group I need to work on better is my back.  It seems as if I gained no muscle at all.  But I also did put on a little bit of fat, which showed up on my back as well as my stomach.  

So the first thing I am going to work on is implementing one or 2 more back exercises into my back routine and see if that helps it grow a little bit more over the next month.

The other thing, is that I am going to still eat a good amount of food, but not as much as I was over the last month and half.  I noticed that when I have peanut butter, I tend to over eat it.  So although I love peanut butter in shakes, on apples, or even just by the spoonful, I am either only going it to buy it every other week, or use enough per day to last me 2 weeks.

Closing thoughts.

I hope that this blog inspired you to start a physique progress challenge of your own, not only to hold yourself accountable, but to create the change in your physique that you would be proud to see!

How A Near Death Experience Can Improve Your Life! (See Life As A Blessing).

What gave me the idea to write this today was something my family and I started talking about 3-4 days ago.

Long story short, about 12 years ago, I ended up choking on calamari or octopus.  This experience at the time was very traumatic for me and impacted me for a few months after I ended up choking.  For somewhere between 3-6 months after I couldn't swallow any food without drinking a beverage with my food.

I would chew my food take a sip of water or pop, and then swallow my food.  The only exception was mashed potatoes and other soft foods.

Maybe you have had a near death experience yourself and survived from it.  Yours may have even been way worse than mine.

But since the other day I have been thinking at least once per day about this subject, and how a near death experience can actually be of benefit to our lives.  Yes I know this may sound kind of out there but I believe these experiences to be a blessing.  They really help you value your life more than you would if you wouldn't have had them.

What do I mean by this?

First off, it makes you realize any moment really could be your last moment here on Earth.  This doesn't mean to always be panicking and scared, but it means that you will end up wanting to achieve more.  And with this philosophy that I am going to share with you today, you are going to feel more gratitude as well as ambition in your daily life.

If you have had a near death experience I want you to think back on it for a moment.  Then I want you to realize how lucky you are to be alive today.  That in order for you to be alive right now God or the Universe has a plan for you.  This means there is a reason for you to be alive in this vey moment.

If you start to look at your life in this way (as a blessing) then you will start to realize your motivation and potential more and more.  Even if you don't currently know your purpose in life, following this VERY important blog will help you to put together the pieces.  Thinking of life as a blessing will help you to start even if you don't know exactly where you are headed yet.  It won't only help you to start, but will help you to keep going!

Closing thoughts.

This is one of the most important blogs I have written to this day.  It is not only focussed on mindset but on action as well, and I know that by following exactly what I said in the above paragraphs you will not only be able to change your own life for the better, but you will positively make an impact on those around as well as the rest of the world!

Live your life to the fullest,
