“Attempting It” – Quote by Ralph Marston

Attempting It

“Every single thing you ever achieve will come as the result of effortsomething you attempt.  So get busy making those attempts! Sure, some of them will fall short of the mark – yet each and every one will bring you closer to the achievement of whatever you desire.

Every winning athlete knows that practice is what ingrains victory.  Practice is the very process of making one attempt after another, and persisting through each and every outcome.

Those who achieve the most are those who attempt the most.  Those who are told “yes” most often are those who have been told “no” most often.  Sure, failure is possible anytime you attempt something.  Yet, failure is certain when you never make the attempt at all.

If you’re waiting for a sure thing, you’ll wait forever and nothing will ever come of it.  So go ahead, get out there- get your hands dirty and make the attempt.  That’s what will bring victory.  That’s what will bring accomplishment.

What would you attempt if you knew you could make it happen? Go ahead and make that attempt.  The first one may not get you there, but it will get you started.  Keep making the attempt and the achievement will be yours.

Hulk Drink – Base Recipe

This is one of my favorite ways to get my daily fix of healthy foods…. I use a “Nutri-Bullet” to basically liquify the veggies/fruits into one drink.


Here is the base “Hulk” Recipe
2 handfuls of spinach
4-5 strawberries
1/2 Orange (WITH peel)

There are SEVERAL things you can add to this (other berries, Kale, nuts and other supplements)

******* IMPORTANT TIP:  Clean the glass you use immediately after drinking [or you will need a chisel to clean it later] 😉


Tech Gadget for Grilling

People that know me know I am a tech geek – I love tech toys.    I recently purchased this for grilling.

With this device you can actually keep track of the temperature of your mean on the grill from your smartphone (using bluetooth).

It’s a very cool item; however, they recently came out with an updated version I think will suit me better (that has multiple thermometers).     Killer concept!
