More food. There’s some not pictured. It’s like all I do is eat food and work🤷🏽‍♂️ We decided to switch it up a little and try some new things. We added more types of meat then we usually do. We added center cut pork loin chops, steak 🥩(I love steak), lean ground turkey, chicken as usual, beef brisket not pictured. I think so many people, including us, just stick to chicken and that’s it. We generally never eat any other kind of chicken besides chicken breast. So it’s nice to incorporate different sources of protein. Other things pictured is protein bars, muesli bars, English muffins, Greek yogurt, fruit, organic apple cider vinegar, turkey bacon, powdered peanut butter, all natural pancake mix 🥞, tuna, seaweed(we never liked it, but we are giving it another try), coffee, cottage cheese, and superfoods dark chocolate 🍫 (Some stuff I probably missed) We can make a lot of excuses in life. I do as well. But we will make time for what’s important. For days I’ve been on less than four hours of sleep due to work and I still find time to shop for healthy food. I’ll always make time for this. It’ll always be important to me. You can make excuses, but it all comes down to how bad you want it. No way to sugar coat it. Even if there was, I wouldn’t do it. Truth should always be recognized. No excuses, just dedication. #thismakesmehappy #ilovefood #realfood #health #healthyisawayoflife #healthyfood #eattogrow #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthychoices #healthyeating #motivation #determination #dedication #workout #workflow #gym #gymflow #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitspo #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #cleaneating #nourish #cleaneats #dreams #life #mealprep #mypassion

You can have anything I got All of me right on the spot. You can have anything that I own Work my fingers all the way to the bone. -Jaheim “Anything” When you love someone you sacrifice. So many people are selfish and self-centered. I have never been this way. I will never be this way. For my wife, I’d do anything. You don’t need some trophy or anything to provide. My wife’s dreams are more important than my own. It means everything to me for her to obtain and finish her education and pursue her passions. It is one of the things that mean most to me. My wife is so intelligent, so dedicated, so passionate about the things she wants to do. I won’t be working from my house as much anymore. I have taken over a 60+ hour work week for her. So she can take the time to pursue her education and the things she loves. No regret, no hidden intentions, just pure and genuine unconditional love for my woman. All the long hours are ALL worth it to see her get the desires of her heart. There is no rest days. But there’s no resentment when I see my wife happy. Nothing could ever be more worth it. Nothing could ever make me more happy. I don’t have some tip on what to do to be a man. I fail many times. But I’ll always try for this woman of mine. Every damn time. The long hours make it all worth it to see her furthering her education and doing what she loves. Love is sacrifice. It doesn’t mean to completely neglect your own dreams. Every time I’ll put her dreams before mine. Hers are more important than my own. I love her that much. So damn excited to see you pursue your dreams. You deserve every single moment of them. You are gonna accomplish so much more than you or anyone else for that matter ever gave you credit for. I’m rooting for you always. Thank you for showing me the makings of a real man. No other woman ever held it down like you. So glad you are my wife. I wouldn’t want it any other way. 💙 #iddoiteverysingletimeforyou #nothingiwouldntdoforher #reallove #mybaby #work #workflow #quote #quotes #realtalk #words #wordporn #life #marriage #blessed #writer #writerscommunity #writersofig #writing #foodforthought #wordsofwisdom #encouragement #hope #faith #loyalty #motivation

A trip to Costco and some various other stores. Not everything pictured and still getting more tomorrow. Eating like this makes my body feel so good. I’d never be able to turn away from this. Many people foolishly think that eating what your body needs is some type of fad or just being on a diet. How come eating healthy is looked at as weird. It’s pretty strange that eating trash is more acceptable. Society blows my mind. These trends these days will tell you to accept obesity because it makes someone happy to eat what they want. If someone truly loves you, they want you to do what is healthy; not what makes you happy. They aren’t always the same thing. Real love is honest. I’d want the same honesty in return. Society is twisted. These trends are mind blowing. I couldn’t imagine not eating this way. My body wants nothing else but this. Eating healthy and what your body actually needs is a high form of self respect. My body craves this type of food. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Eating healthy helps my mental health more than anything else I could ever eat in regards to non beneficial food. #mypassion #eattogrow #health #healthymind #healthyfood #healthyliving #healthychoices #nourish #nutrition #dedication #determination #life #healthylifestyle #workout #dreams #goals #encouragement #inspirationalquotes #gym #fit #fitspo #fitfam #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #cleaneating #cleaneats #mealprep #food

Let me be honest; as a person who can’t stand most people in this life, this resonates with me. I have never been the type to care about what other people think of me. I never will. My mind isn’t wired that way. Thank God for that. I don’t care for people’s opinions. They are irrelevant to me. I can count on one hand the opinions of people that have actually ever mattered to me in my entire life. I don’t care who likes or dislikes me. I seriously don’t care. The chances of you knowing me are none. Literally. I am extremely misunderstood even to those small handful of people closest to me. The chances of someone thinking they know me who never will, it will never make me put energy into wondering why they don’t like me or what I can do to make them like me. Think whatever you please. It’s your choice. I hold no significant value on wasting time on irrelevant opinions. People will pick you apart and choose to dislike what they think they know. Whatever you decide to show them isn’t your entire identity. We show people what we want to show. It doesn’t mean they know exactly who we are. Don’t let it bother you. You are not meant to be for everyone. My circle is extremely small in quantity. I don’t make time for drama, gossip, irrelevant people, incompetence, stupidity, ignorance, lack of morals, etc. I never have and never will. Keeping your circle tight makes less room for the stupidity of this world. We live in a really stupid world to be completely bluntly honest. You are going to be disliked in this life. But move on, hang onto your people and live your life peacefully. It’s all you really can do. Don’t try and change yourself to be liked for who you are not. Be yourself, the right people will come. #positivevibes #letitgo #quotes #quote #truth #writer #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writersofig #words #wordstoliveby #wordsofwisdom #wordporn #foodforthought #quoteoftheday #life #motivation #determination #hope #intj #dreams #goals #encouragement #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #freedom #beyourself #healthymind #writer #writing

Exactly 6 days ago I posted how much I love tacos. Here I am, 6 days later, eating chipotle quesadillas(close enough). My point? Go after your dreams. This is what happiness looks like. This is our rack up of carbs. Don’t eat tortillas like this, but living it up today. Saved all of my carbs for this meal tonight. All worth it 🌮 #goafteryourdreams #everydayistacoday #thisisthelife #whathappinesslookslike #tacos #healthylifestyle #health #healthy #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #healthychoices #healthyliving #fit #fitnessjourney #fitspo #fitfam #fitspiration #fitnessmotivation #motivation #determination #dedication #hardwork #cleaneating #cleaneats #nourish #nutrition #gym #gymflow #workout #food

“If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done”. -Thomas Jefferson Life is about changes and new beginnings. If we stay with familiar we will never experience new. I, for one, know the truth in this statement. For I actually have a very difficult time with change. I always have. I suppose it is my ability to over analyze and be able to foresee many things ahead. I need a plan and I need to strategize. I have always been called intuitive and I know that I am. Sometimes it’s a good thing and maybe even a barrier on many occasions. I have always been called insightful as well. Going into the unknown is not easy at all. All the what if’s can drive you crazy. But what if it actually works out? What if you take a leap of faith and trust the process? What if you get more than you could have ever asked for? Don’t be hindered by remaining in comfortable or familiar territory. It’s good to strategize and make plans; but don’t be hindered to make that leap and go after things. Dreams are just dreams till we pursue them. I have a perfectionist and black and white thinking pattern. It’s either I’m going all in or I’m not there at all. It’s like in college I either get A’s or I’m uninterested in completing an assignment if I know I won’t get an A. So when I go all in after my dreams, I succeed. It’s either perfect or there’s no other way for me. I don’t see grey; I never have. It’s unfortunate really. It has its ups and downs with this. But it’s really bad in many ways; so let me hypocritically tell you to not have this mentality. It’s okay for it to not be perfect. Nothing is ever truly perfect in this life anyway. Give it everything you got and work through it. It’s all you can do. If you wait till you are ready, you will be waiting for the rest of your life. #dontbeafraidofchange #truth #quote #quotes #hardwork #determination #motivation #motivationalquotes #newbeginnings #change #dreams #goals #wordporn #wordsofwisdom #life #positivevibes #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writer #hope #inspiration #encouragement #wordstoliveby #foodforthought #writing #dedication #letgo #blessed #freedom #intj

“Hardship often prepares an ordinary person for an extraordinary destiny”. -C.S Lewis We all go through hard times in this life.No one is untouched by this; granted some more than others. We have choices, although many times it doesn’t feel like it, how we choose to respond to these things. Those hardships are preparing you for a great end. It doesn’t ever seem like that when we go through things. Why would it? It’s not supposed to do that. My wife is the closest thing I’ve ever seen in all my life of grace, positivity, and integrity. I’ve seen her take on small to rather large situations with such grace, such humility, such positivity. Through her mentality I’ve grown and learned so much through her. I’ve seen negative situations turn into positive ones right before my eyes because of her positivity. She inspires me to be more like that every single day. If I must say so myself, out of my hardship it DID turn out amazing. There is no guarantee as to how long it will be. It took over 20 years to reach my extraordinary destiny. I am a married man with accountability. My hardship led me right to my blessing. All of your hardships can very well be preparing you for the greatest blessing of your life. I am not a patient man. I strive to be though. If I could have foreseen that my blessing would lead to my wife, my eyes would have remained fixed on the truth. Through the storms, I finally was guided to shore. It’s like when you think your life is a complete shipwreck and nothing is ever going to take you away from the broken pieces. But something always will.Take ahold of the storm, find truth, get to the freedom. Guess what? Get out of the shipwreck and build a whole new boat. Fight for a will, the way will lead. You met me right in my mess,I met you in yours. From then on, we’ve built from the ground up. We’ve got a kingdom now babygirl. I’d go through all of my hardships all over again with more grace, more patience, more humility, to keep my eyes fixed on the end- my prize; you.I’ll never leave you in a mess. You won’t ever go through it alone.I won’t ever allow it.Everyone should have that type of loyalty.To have someone face the hardships with you. ⛵️ #sailing

This is my wife. I still can’t believe this stunning and gorgeous woman is mine. This day is a day for reflection, perspective, new beginnings, and hope. This is a new year for me. While I have never been the one to announce a birthday, I suppose I never had so much to be thankful for and really just grateful. I literally cannot stand my birthday. I hate being the center of attention so much that people don’t even know when it is my birthday. But, this year, I have gotten by far my most valued and treasurable gift of all- here she is. I am so beyond blessed. Looking back on my birthday last year I would have never thought I’d be married 6 months later. But, this year I have grown more than I ever have mentally. When you have you and you alone, accountability is not something you are familiar with. Through my darkness my wife has remained by my side. She doesn’t judge, she just loves. We have been friends for two and a half years and we’ve been married for almost 6 months. Through all she has seen, she still remains by my side. She is my rock through all the storms. She is so joyful. She brings joy to the darkest of my days. She always has. Since I’m really uninterested with most people in life, my wife was always different. She pushed and was persistent through all of my walls. She has always been my constantly great thing through all the storms. Nothing ever scared her away. She intrigued me and drew me in just by being who she is. That is such a rarity because not many can really intrigue me. On the darkest of my days, and the darkest of hers, we remained side by side. She remained my light, my sunshine, my true joy in the darkness. You can see the joy beaming even in pictures with her. She overflowed my life with such an abundance of unfamiliar joy I didn’t even know what to do with it. Due to being so reserved, I never show that on the outside. And while on this day she was so disappointed for not being able to do what she wanted for me, I reminded her of what she does just by being who she is in my life. I truly never asked for anything and never wanted anything. Like I said, I can’t stand birthdays. But she changed my whole outlook this year. #mybaby

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain A late post, but a really needed post. Go and live a little. We really only do have one life to live . Go be spontaneous,travel and enjoy when you can. If I must say so- there is not much that can add to the freedom you get when you travel and explore the world. You see new opportunity and really just how small of a part of the world you live in. The world is huge, it was never meant to be spent in one place. Allow adventure to cleanse your soul. You’d be surprised what new experiences can do for you. Go and see how beautiful our world really is. #sendingpositivevibes #explore #travel #travelphotography #travelphotography #travelling #travelblogger #wanderlust #dreams #goals #freedom #quotes #quote #quoteoftheday #words #wordsofwisdom #foodforthought #life #motivation #dedication #encouragement #inspiration #writer #writersofig #writing #writerscommunity #wordporn #healthymind #healthyfood #fitnessmotivation #fitfam

“It is amazing how your life changes when you embrace the reality that you’re better than the life you’ve settled for.” Steve Maraboli Really simply put. Do not settle. You were made for so much more. Choose to grow. You will remain in the same place if you do not make the effort to pursue changes. Don’t let fear hinder your growth. You wouldn’t expect a plant to grow in the same soil; don’t expect yourself to either.Choose not to remain in the same soil. 🎋🌺 #donotsettle #motivation #quote #quotes #growth #blogger #blogging #blog #quoteoftheday #mentalhealth #writer #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writing #hope #life #writing #healthymind #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #dreams #determination #progress #freedom #fit #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #healthybreakfast #workout

“And me, I remain alone, entangled in my love affair with solitude” -N.C As for me, my solitude is my everything. It always has been. This is what I desire. What a rarity in the this life to find someone who you enjoy being alone with. When you enjoy being alone as much as I always have, those closest become blessings. It doesn’t happen often for me. And I honestly never cared. I seek to find a place like this. Real solitude recharges my soul. Solitude with someone you love starts to do that when you find someone you click with. To enjoy the presence of someone in your solitude is of significant value. Don’t lose sight of that. When you become apart of my solitude,you’ve reached that point. It hasn’t happened much in my life. Why choose anyone? Solitude is peace, and only if someone brings me that would I ever welcome them in that. This rainy day makes me want this quote all so much more today. I desire something different and something new. Silence, solitude, real peace. Nothing more I could ever ask for. Right now, ☕️, music and the sound of a the rain does so much justice. Definitely my kinda day 🌧 Just need to get away. #purehappiness #coffeeandrain #silence #solitude #peace #comfortable #joy #rain #reflection #writer #writersofinstagram #writing #poem #poetry #spilledink #quote #quotes #freedom #writersofig #wordporn #wordporn #words #foodforthought #motivation #determination #inspiration #encouragement #intj #introvert

In the mind of an INTJ.. this is it- this is me. My brain is scattered and so are three open books and I cannot focus for nothing. Multi tasking is a no go for me. 😩 But it’s raining here again in New York and I focus the most with the peace of the rain 🌧 • • •Healthy lunch as always. I’m taking off the bread of of the sandwiches as well. Salad with carrot shreds, chickpeas, cucumbers, and a little chicken and no dressing 🥗 , of course what would I do without coffee ☕️, and a whole lot of researching and writing 📝 #coffeeislife #psychology #neuropsychology #intj #healthyeating #healthyfood #healthyliving #healthyrecipes #healthylifestyle #healthyeats #health #healthy #healthylife #cleaneating #nutrition #nourish #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #motivation #determination #gym #rain #hardwork #goals #writer #writersofinstagram

I don’t have a hallmark-mom to dedicate Mother’s Day and celebrate. We are all given a mother at birth who obviously- gives birth to us. But as far as a mom, that’s something that I don’t have. But, today I think about the woman who birthed me. She’s on the far right in this photo. I have come to realize that we all struggle with our own stuff; granted, some more than others. And it’s safe to say, that is my mom. I never understood the severity in how mental health weighs heavy on her soul. I know this more so now then ever before. In the understanding of who she is, I realize that her soul is so very heavy and that’s what I think of today. So instead of celebrating and being fake as to what moms should be, I take this day aside and pray that her mental well-being gets better. She struggles so bad. I pray that she understands she needs help. I pray for protection and safety with her life. She was not a mom to her kids, but I take the time to dedicate acknowledgment on this day to her. She fights within the battle of her mind every single day all her life. I suppose she did the best that she could as a prisoner of her own mind. It isn’t easy and I know that. Mother’s Day is not all about celebrating hallmark picture perfect moms. There are some who never even had one. So here’s to my mom, one that does not fit this day, but her soul weighs heavy and she needs a lot of strength. Mental health is real and it’s so real with my mom. I acknowledge you today for the woman that you are and I pray that you change your life one day. That’s all I could ever want for you. I pray for a genuine smile that is real. I pray you experience real happiness for once in your life and the hole you have in your heart is healed. I could never be open about who she is, because I’m just reserved like that. Social media is used many times to be an open book and put your life out there. I don’t believe in that in real life or on here. I am extremely private. So vague and private it’s actually an issue with those closest to me. But, there’s a fine line between transparency and being an open book. So, here’s me stepping out of my vagueness and being transparent. #mothersday #mentalhealth

“We all have souls of different ages” -F . Scott. Fitzgerald I’ve always been called wise beyond my years, an old soul, intuitive, and so on and so forth. I never have and never will fit in with people my own age. I never cared about fitting in either. It was always a struggle fitting in with people when my soul always felt so much older. By 10 it already felt like I was 30. By my 20’s it feels as if I’ve lived most of my life. I’ve always gotten along better with people older than me. If there was ever a time I really fit in, it would be with them. My soul is beyond my outer appearance. I’ve been this way since I was a kid. All the people I get along with are in their 40’s, 50’s and so on. To me it is rather of great significance to find people who are intellectual and wise. I cannot tolerate the lack of value of conversations with no meaning. Partying, drugs, alcohol, gossip, etc, it bores me and it drains me. Intelligence is so hot. I choose wisely who I invest my time into. Not many people out there understand or even want to understand your brain. I enjoy surrounding myself with people whom I can talk to about real stuff with. Not many out there, so when they come, it’s a blessing when they do. Captivate my mind, hold my interest, it is a real rarity in this life. I would rather be alone then invest time into people who have no intellectual depth. Completely meaningless. I am not of this generation, this I know. #oldsoul #neuropsychology #intelligenceissexy #reflection #psychology #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writers #writing #writingcommunity #intj #words #wordporn #quote #quotes #wordstoliveby #foodforthought #wordsofwisdom #life #poem #poetry #motivation #dedication #encouragement #hope #realtalk #inspiration #dreams #newyork

Throwing it back to yesterday with nearly 80 degrees outside. A new watermelon bowl to put Smoothie bowls in 😋 I’m obsessed. Frozen berries, banana and strawberries. Toppings: Unsweetened coconut, snickers(We never buy candy, but someone gave it to us so I put a little in hers for a treat) granola, almonds, pistachios, and cranberries. #health #healthy #healthyfood #healthyeats #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #healthybreakfast #healthyrecipes #cleaneating #cleaneats #food #foodie #nutrition #nourish #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #gym #gymflow #workout #smoothiebowl #motivation #dedication #dreams #goals #youarewhatyoueat
