This is a fun challenge being hosted by Endre Barath, Jr. and while I was reading the rules, I was trying to think of what I changed in my business in 2019.  It was a good year, so I must have changed something, right?  I couldn't think of anything that I changed with my business from the year prior, so I am led to believe that I just have to be patient with what I am doing because it is working and the business will come when it is time.

 

The challenge also asked about changes in our lives and something big did change in my life in 2019.  I took up swimming in June and it seems to be the answer I was looking for with my quest to become healthier.  I have always been healthy and seemingly got plenty of exercise with my tennis and hiking, but swimming definitely took it to another level.  In June, I weighed around 175 lbs, but now I am weighing in around 150 lbs with muscle.  I am also eating in a more healthy manner and have pretty much-eliminated sugar and grains from my daily diet.  Pictured is my most recent attempt, a sandwich on grain-free bread.  I came across a recipe that uses almond flour, rather than traditional flour and my mentor Barbara Todaro even signed off on it.  The sandwich was delicious and filling.  Now I just need to perfect the loaf of bread that I make in order to not have to stack the sandwich so high that it doesn't fit in my mouth, haha.

Hi Brian- You're on the road to a long healthy life. Even though you are active all of the healthy eating goes hand in hand with the healthy lifestyle you want. Cheers to you!!

I hope you are right Kathy Streib and that is the goal.  I play tennis with guys in their 70's, I want to be playing tennis in my 70's too!

Morning Brian.

Hello Brian - your business plan of continuing to do the right thing is paying off well.  I am sure your attitude of moving more and eating better will have the same longterm results.  It seems to be working.  Good for you.

Good morning James Dray does that mean that you eat foods with sugar or greasy foods too?  If it is working for you, I say keep on keeping on!  I am happy to hear that you are healthy!

Thank you Michael Jacobs I just wish that the business plan would lead to something more steady, but I know real estate is not that way, haha.

Hi Brian, so proud of you. Swimming sounds like just the right exercise for you. And, it's so good for us. Healthy on the joints (unlike running, which I love).  As for that sandwich, it looks delicious. I'm going to check out your bread recipe too. Sounds yummy.

Thank you Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD and I think swimming is the right thing for me.  I have never wanted to run and with knowing that it is hard on our knees and joints, it seems like it could do more harm than good for my body, haha.  At least that will be my excuse.

Hi Brian England I am looking for that bread recipe. I also have taken swimming back up and have swam more in the past 6 weeks than in the past 35 years combined. At one time I was on a swim team.  I also have began lifting weights religiously for the first time in 17 years.  The weight has not started coming off yet...but I am in such better shape and so much stronger.

Still need to fine tune a few eating habits...ok quite a few. Thanks for the inspiration...and if you have it handy...send me your recipe for the bread!!

Congratulations, Brian! All good stuff - swimming, healthy eating! It seems we have more and more opportunities for this in the East Valley, but prepraing the food ourselves is always special! I should probably that recepe - I see almond flower in the stores, and always wondered what people use it for. ...

It sounds like you are putting in the work Mike McCann - Nebraska Farm Land Broker and I am sure that you will begin to see results soon!  Here is a link to the recipe that I used for the bread:  Rustic Almond Flour Bread

Thank you Steffy Hristova and almond flour seems to be a great substitute for regular flour and is healthier for us!

As an older person I have come to the conclusion that having it all is a good thing. I like being successful but relieving stress through exercise which also promotes health is essential. Eating right is just as important.

It is funny that it often takes us many years to learn that Joe Pryor and sometimes an illness forces us into what we should have been doing all along.

Brian,

Congrats on your plan to stay fit with diet and exercise that works for you and you enjoy doing.  I agree with Mike McCann - Nebraska Farm Land Broker, post that bread recipe. It sounds and looks terrific!  

By chance would it be one of these from 

Yummly 10 Best Almond Flour Bread Recipes

I just say no to GMO bread. Being prepared with the right recipes takes away any urge to splurge on the bad stuff just because it looks good.

Thank you Kris Collis, Associate Broker and it feels really good to be healthy!  I don't know if it is any of those recipes, but I am going to check them out.  My goal was to make a grain-free bread since Barbara Todaro has me on the road to being grain-free.

Here is a link to the recipe that I used for the bread:  Rustic Almond Flour Bread
