Naysayers

Naysayer: One who frequently engages in excessive complaining, negative banter and/or a genuinely poor and downbeat attitude. Naysayers are distinguished by their tendency to consistently view the glass half empty, make frequent one-way trips to negative town, and constantly emphasize the worst of a situation. They have the capacity to rant and whine for hours on end about the most insignificant inconveniences. They tend to travel solo, but have the keen ability to spread their pessimistic attitude to a group of unsuspecting bystanders and encourage others to employ their mindset.

Maurice Jones Drew is professional running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has had to listen to naysayers all his life just because of his size, 5'7" 208lbs, watch this video.....very motivating!



The only person who can limit your ability and potential is yourself!

Super Stars


this post was inspired by Jt....

In the Kepler household, we have some tremendous athletes, and to be honest with you I'm probably the low man on the totem pole! And I'm no slouch! I look at my wife and all that she has accomplished and continues to accomplish is quite outstanding. For those who know her I don't need to list all of her accomplishments, for those who don't you will soon enough (careykepler.blogspot.com). Now through the power of procreation, we have 2 budding super stars who have infinite possibilities! As a youth, I had "some" opportunities to go to specialty camps during the summer as well as play in any sports league I had an interest in... but that's it. My mother was amazing in the fact that she took me to every practice, game, tournament, or camp that I was involved in (with the occasional help of my father). No knock on my dad, but he started working as a teenager from a family of 11 and hasn't stopped yet. So other then the fact my father could run all day, ask him to shoot a basketball and it's quite comical. (picture Manute Bol for those who know basketball). Point of all this is that I had the drive to excel in athletics but no direction from my parents, and at no fault of their own, they were doing what they thought was best for us. Back to our super stars... Savannah and Stone are exposed to a healthy lifestyle 24-7. They are constantly running through the house doing "mini circuits" that they have made up on their own. My boy loves to do burpees and fast feet, and he's only 20 months old! Savannah has been swinging from rings and pull-up bars for as long as I can remember. Keep in mind this blog post is only talking about the athletic ability that my kids posses, they are both extremely bright and intelligent kids. And if he they never played a day of sports in their life wouldn't change one feeling that I have about them....BUT, I don't think that will be the case, take a look for yourself...

This is My CHURCH!

Church is not an address on the corner of a street.... “Church isn’t where you meet. Church isn’t a building. Church is what you do. Church is who you are. Church is the human outworking of the person of Jesus Christ. Let’s not go to Church, let’s be the Church." Bridget Willard

The Prodigy



"I’m not here to criticize him or anything," he said. "But when I see that kind of thing, I don’t think much of it. He wants to portray himself as the crazy one; I think he’s just portraying himself as the weird one. And we’re gonna know which guy’s more crazy when we get into the Octagon."

"I think it’s going to play the part after I start shutting down his takedowns," said Penn. "When he realizes he doesn’t have that to go to, he’s gonna see a lot of punches coming really quick at him. It’s something I don’t think he’s prepared for."

-- UFC Lightweight Champion BJ "The Prodigy" Penn talking the stranger eccentricities of contender Diego Sanchez. The two will fight for Penn's title this weekend at UFC 107.

Quite prophetic to say the least. If you watched the match, then you'll know that Penn put on a clinic. In my opinion, the most dominate UFC match I have seen.

Quality of LIfe



I woke up this morning to find 5 text messages from my mother informing me that both of my Grandmothers aren't doing well... "Good morning to you as well" is all I could think of. On top of this, I have maybe averaged 4 hours of sleep a night for the last 3 nights because my little man has some crazy drainage that makes him cough like a grown man(pity patty party over now). Back to my Grandmother's, both have been notorious over their life span to have TERRIBLE eating habits, lack of exercise, and as for one of my grandmother's, diagnosed with ephysema 15 years ago... Why are they in the boat that they are in? Granted both of them turned 80 recently, but for as long as I can remember they have both been sick off and on for years. Then I look at my mother, the medical professional that she is....following in the footsteps of her mother, is she insane?! my father as well...both my parents smoke like winter chimney's, and drink like sailors! I'm not perfect by any means, but to watch people literally destroy themselves on a daily basis makes me want to YELL so f*cking loud it hurts!

Dave Mathews song comes to mind with my own changes at the end...

We were above
You were standing underneath us
We were not yet lovers
Dragons were smoked
Bumblebees were stinging us
I was soon to be crazy

Eat, drink, and be merry
For tomorrow we die
Eat, drink, and be merry
For tomorrow we die
'Cause we're Tripping Billies

We're wearing nothing
Nothing but our shadows
Shadows falling down on the beach sand
Remembering once,
Out on the beaches we wore
Pineapple grass bracelets

So why would you care
To get out of this place
You and me and all our friends
Such a happy human race

'Cause we're Tripping Billies

We are all sitting
Legs crossed round a fire
My yellow flame she dances
Tequila drinking, oh, our
Minds will wander
To wondrous places

So why would you care
To get out of this place
You and me and all our friends
Such a happy human race

Eat, drink, and be merry
For tomorrow we die
Eat, drink, and be merry
For tomorrow we die

Check 'em out, Boyd, yeah!

Eat, drink, and be merry
For tomorrow we die
Eat, drink, and be merry
For tomorrow we die

The words to live by should be, eat healthy, drink in moderation, and you'll be merry if you do die tomorrow.....if not embrace the ugly pain that you are creating for you and everyone around you, don't be selfish.

2010 Crossfit Games







The 2010 Crossfit Games web page was launched today announcing the Sectional and Regional Qualifier locations and dates. Are you doing the thing that will achieve the success you desire? when it's your time to fight, are you going to tap out? are you?

You aren't alive anywhere like you're alive at fight club.... Fight club isn't about winning or losing fights. Fight club isn't about words. You see a guy come to fight club for the first time, and his ass is a loaf of white bread. You see this same guy here six months later, and he looks carved out of wood. This guy trusts himself to handle anything. There's grunting and noise at fight club like at the gym, but fight club isn't about looking good. There's hysterical shouting in tongues like at church, and when you wake up Sunday afternoon you feel saved. ~Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

We are built for Greatness

Roger Bannister was the first to break the 4minute mile barrier, which was thought to be impossible!


It just takes one person to do something considered impossible....


In 1999, Hicham El Guerrouj ran 3:43.13 in a mile race in Rome - breaking the previous world record by over a second.

Ultramarathon




Cactus Rose
100mi & 50mi Trail Run
Bandera Texas - 30 Oct 2010
5am Sat - (36hr limit) - 4pm Sun

I will run the 100mi trail on October 30, which will be the weekend of my 33rd birthday. To give you a little background on how this blog started I have to take you back almost 2 years ago....JT was running the AT&T marathon here in Austin, and I was his anchor leg for the last 6 miles. After finishing the run and getting to witness all the competitors bust their ass for 4 hours or more and then getting to run down Congress Avenue towards the finish line...I got inspired! I started my blog the next day, which was going to log all my workouts till the following year in which I was going to run the AT&T marathon. Needless to say, I decided against it when the time came around to sign up for it. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago, I picked up Born To Run by Christopher McDougall and couldn't put it down! It awoken that inner longing inside of me that LOVES to run.... Cactus Rose 100mi, or die trying.

If The World Were Mine

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”

Buddha




Whoa
Yeah
But if this world were mine
They'd play rub-a-dub all the time
But then me playin' with this double bass line
They playin' with the wicked man style
Because me born as a discipline child
Whoa
Yeah
But if this world were mine
They'd play rub a dub all the time
But then me playin' with this double bass line
They playin' with the wicked man style
Because me born as a discipline..
But since me was a youth
Me taught to love your mother
Come again now
But since me was a youth
Me taught to love your father
Said
But if you listen carefully
Then you must be consider
But the reason that we play
The music's to feel much stronger
But son you've got to take it
At least three times a day
But if you wanna be quick
And livin' in the irie way
You've got to pick it up boy
Pick it up, pick it up
But i wanna pick it up boy
Pick it up pick it up pick it up
But i wanna pick it up boy
Before he want to come to getcha' ganja say

Whoa
Yeah
But if this world were mine
They playin'rub-a-dubbin' all the time
But then me playin' with this wicked bass line
Me playin with the wicked (rub-a-dub) dub style
Because me born as a discipline child


The World will supply to you what you need if you respect it and want it bad enough!

Omnivore's Dilemma



.....Do you really know what your eating or drinking is really what it says it is??? Does Organic really mean it's %100 organic, or one small process in it's development was organic. The Omnivore's Dilemma is an excellent book to read that will answer most if not all of your questions about the food and drinks we consume. I've heard all the excuses and whining about individuals health that I can take. If your stomach hurts after eating certain foods don't eat it! If milk makes you constipated, stop drinking it! If breads and pastas make you bloated and sleepy, don't eat them. Not sleeping at night....do you consume caffeine during the day??? If so stop! Our body's are the most advanced machines on planet earth...start treating it that way! It's NOW or NEVER, start taking better care of yourself!

to the one's that die a premature death, at least you can be an organ donor...that is if your organs are worth saving
