Why the First 6 Weeks of a Goal Matter

I was speaking yesterday with WB Fitness about how my initial fat loss has slowed and my first taste of 2018 gains are starting to show, but I can feel the sting of routine, aka my body getting used to the workouts, rearing its ugly head.  Ultimately WB told me that our goal is to get ready for summer and that its only mid-winter and we’ve only been on a program for 6 weeks.  I started thinking about how when you start something, its ultimately around the 6 week mark that things change and how this translates into other aspects of life. Today I’ll explain my findings and how to apply yourself depending on the situation.

Celebrating AKC’s First Birthday

From Jak

Yes ladies and gentlemen, today marks A King’s Castle’s first full year up and running on the interwebs and what a year it has been!

I’m going to be honest with you.  When J. Nyx and I first thought up the idea of creating A King’s Castle, I knew we were onto something big, but I had no idea that we would explode the way we did in just one year! Continue reading “Celebrating AKC’s First Birthday”

Chores, Allowance and How To Get Your Kids Involved At Home

Today it seems that kids aren’t expected to do jack shit outside of school work, and half the time most parents don’t even care about that.   All I ever see is kids sitting around with their faces buried in devices, their parents mindless zombies who do the same, and these kids are just expected to exist and flat out demand new things from their parents without working for it.  Today I’ll share how things work in my house and some tips for any of you dads who may need to lay down the law at home Continue reading “Chores, Allowance and How To Get Your Kids Involved At Home”

Destruction of Doubt

We all hit that point when doing something where doubt begins to kick in.  Whether you’re trying to get that next rep at the gym, trying to get something done at work, or when mid-project on something of leisure, there can be that time when everything is telling you to just give up, take the easy path, and do something easy, or worse, never start at all.  Recently I discovered that this voice inside you is typically wrong, and you’re capable of much more than you think.  Today I’ll go over some scenarios where just giving it that extra 1% more effort can pay off.   Continue reading “Destruction of Doubt”

Open Thread: Day Off Edition

The Eagles won the super bowl last night and while I’m not typically infatuated with pro sports, there is an energy that everyone seems to be feeling in the area today.  I didn’t participate in much of the anarchy going on last night following the win but I have to admit that this city is fucking crazy.
