Handstand Practice (my progress so far)

80 attempts per day. 4 days per week. 6 weeks worth of work so far…

handstand practice Handstand Practice (my progress so far)

…this is what it’s taken me to find my balance upside down and achieve mere seconds of hang time on my handstands.

Much more work to be done.

I won’t be satisfied until I’m able to hold my handstand for much longer AND walk on my hands in handstand position. I began this journey by watching gymnastics tutorials on Youtube and watching Greedy Baby receive instruction in her tumbling classes.

Then, I simply began putting in work with 80 attempts per day before every workout session. Tomorrow is another day. You can catch me out back at 6am for some pre-workout handstand practice.

I refuse to entertain a hindering, self-limiting mindset from the false concept that age dictates what we can or cannot achieve. I’m 41 years old and can achieve any damn thing I set my mind to.

…so can YOU.

Greedy Recipe! Crispy Zucchini Fritters

Took less than 10 minutes to make me some zucchini fritters. So dang easy, even a lazy person will beg to do it.

zucchini fritters Greedy Recipe! Crispy Zucchini Fritters

The golden brown color is mesmerizing. Crispy on the outside. Deliciously tender on the inside. I can attest to the tastiness since the kids demanded more. We’re talking about a zucchini dish — a green vegetable unpopular with under-aged humans. But those gremlins still wanted MORE. 

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

makes approximately 8 fritters

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • sprinklings of garlic, onion, salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp (approx.) coconut oil or olive oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut off both ends of fresh zucchini and shred with a grater.
  2. Place entire heap of zucchini into two layers of paper towel and squeeze to strain the liquid.
  3. Now transfer to fresh paper towel and strain again to remove any remaining excess liquid.
  4. Place zucchini in medium bowl. Add panko breadcrumbs, beaten egg and seasonings, then mix well.
  5. Add oil to frying pan on medium-high heat.
  6. Form portions of zucchini mixture into 3-inch patties or to desired size.
  7. Fry on each size for approximately 90 seconds or until golden brown.
  8. Tip: be sure to watch patties carefully to avoid burning. Adjust frying temperature as necessary.

Feel free to conduct your own tasty experiments, adding more zucchini or a little less panko to suit your liking. So long as the mixture can form a patty that holds together decently, it should work out nicely for you.

You ‘best be ready to make some fritters, because I ain’t sharing mine.

8 Behaviors That Lead to Failure and Regret

1. If you refuse to challenge yourself, you will never grow.

2. If you can’t deal with the occasional discomforts and inconveniences that are part of the process, your inner strength needs fortifying.

3. If you refuse to grind it out on the regular, your efforts are simply half-hearted.

4. If you’re tossed to-and-fro by the criticism of others, you will never become the greatest version of yourself.

5. If you experience an inward nudging to pursue a particular path, yet constantly ignore it, you’re cheating yourself out of something wonderful.

6. If you repeatedly doubt your abilities, skills, talents and gifts, you will never scratch the surface of your potential.

7. If you allow weeks, months and years to go by without doing something about your situation, it’s obvious you are going nowhere.

8. If you make excuses for why you cannot “be”, “do” or “become”, then you have sealed your fate.

Greedy Recipe! Jalapeno Eggs Over Easy

Oh yesss. Cooking up ‘dem jalapeno eggs in my cast iron skillet.

jalapeno eggs Greedy Recipe! Jalapeno Eggs Over Easy

This is the perfect combination of protein for flat abs and muscle building, plus a thermonuclear explosion of spicy heat to keep that metabolism burning. You gotta try it.

I also hereby demand you to try cooking your eggs in coconut oil instead of butter. Coconut oil has so many benefits and definitely delivers an extra blast of tasty-flavor to eggs.

DIRECTIONS: Prep diced jalapenos prior to cooking eggs. Break eggs into pan and immediately sprinkle in your diced jalapenos. Continue to fry eggs as normal. 

Yup. I did breakfast for dinner with some jalapeno eggs served over a bed of corned beef hash. It was a quick & lazy meal with 21 grams of protein.

As for my beloved cast iron skillet, I noticed somebody used it and didn’t clean it right. Some anonymous scoundrel mistreated my skillet. This is a major violation. I will get to the bottom of this mystery even if it means I have to crawl to the innermost depths of earth’s core to find the answers I’m searching for.

I will find out who used my skillet. Bettah not have been YOU.
