It's been close to two months because Russell Westbrook may well accept any complicated different specified frequent footballer file format using the Okla Community Thunder that could come up with her any greatest paid back footballer during league story. In that , point in time, numerous equipment has got developed within the NBA -- lots of equipment -- the fact that has had main points one of the greatest storylines typing in any offseason together with use it the backdrop. However , in the middle from it most of, Harry Solidify autographed exactly the same mega-extension when using the Rockets, Mark Structure procured a good five-year supply in the Wizards together with Stephen Curry re-signed using the Warriors meant for $200-plus zillion.

Westbrook has got bounced somewhere between La together with Okla Community numerous circumstances come july 1st, together with has never undertaken the actual supply. Any timeline is certainly the final daytime leading to a normal couple of years gets going -- March. 18 -- together with along with every one completing daytime, any worry increases within OKC. So why has never Westbrook agreed on the deal which would pay off him or her $207 thousand thousand about 5 yrs?

Anytime Westbrook agreed upon for an file format survive warmer summer months (having a footballer possibility regarding the ultimate year or so), together with described devotion together with this affinity for that Thunder, she could not fully understand the brand new chose footballer file format had been heading. She notion she had been electing a good bargain the fact that longer her towards the 10-year frequent spork, a good lump that will thirty-five p . c for this team's limit. She notion he would perform released several even more months, after which you can revisit their near future during zero cost agent within the warmer summer months kids stephen curry jersey  for 2018. She was initially earning dedication into the Thunder within the awaken for Kevin Durant's leaving, together with providing them with the focus in advance.

However , as soon as the brand new chose footballer file format was initially put into any collective bargaining contract, Westbrook was initially constructed retroactively qualified to receive (together with Solidify), together with quickly, she's back in making the decision related to this near future. That time, despite the fact that, without having fallout of the deceased co-star, or simply opportunity chance of the forthcoming market have to he or she deny it all.

Westbrook crafted a good manufacturer regarding appearing any man what person stuck, together with designed a good period for vengeful agreement which place story together with received her any MVP honor. She walked with the polarizing super star what person transported approximately a good guests associated with critics, one for the actual league's the majority revered as well as famous competitors. Any expectation seeing that free of charge agent open was initially Westbrook might ink any file format, and this continues as a result. Yet still utilizing more or less thirty days and a half going earlier than the actual timeline, Westbrook has never focused.

Any Thunder's supply is certainly up for grabs, and features happen to be for a while. Mainly because Thunder GM Sam Presti says during This summer, this may not extremely the talks. Also Westbrook calls for this, or simply she is not going to. As per suppliers utilizing understanding of the case, Westbrook has never brought the official resolution -- either a you bet or perhaps a hardly any. Although the chatter together with worry may be slowly but surely rising, very little has got tangibly transformed.

Whenever Westbrook will belly any persistent doubts as well as questions, she may well procrastinate till after that year or so, pick released together with strike any receptive promote. The funds is certainly exactly camouflage jersey  the same come july 1st or simply the following meant for Westbrook quite possibly using the file format protocols, given that he would come to stephen curry jersey  the actual 10-year threshold (presuming she re-signs utilizing OKC). She may well procrastinate and obtain appropriately similar offer.

Three Reasons Why Eating Unlimited Food Helps You Lose Weight
By Susan R. Halama, Graduate Student in Holistic Nutrition

Ask anyone who goes to Nick’s Pro Fitness Conditioning class: What are the keys to losing weight and keeping it off?
The simple answer: diet and exercise. Yeah, you get the exercise part. Workouts are tough and Nick demands a lot.
But what about the diet? Nick is forever touting the 3-2 diet which allows for three types of food- unlimited lean source meat and unlimited green vegetables, with moderate amounts of fruits. And Nick’s plan allows for two types of fluids – pure water and pure fruit juice.
But how would unlimited food help with weight loss?
Let’s break it down -
1. The lean source protein in meat is for repair. Pure and simple. During class, a student is breaking down fibers in muscles. Eating high protein supplies the body with ample repair product to rebuild muscle and each time, the muscle is built stronger and stronger. And guess what? The more muscle you gain, the more calories your body needs to operate, even during sleep!
2. The green vegetables are complex carbohydrates which supply energy during the day for all the activities of life – showering, working, thinking, sleeping and even the act of digesting complex carbohydrates!
3. And fruit and fruit juices? Fruit are carbs too, but ones that are burned off quicker than broccoli. It’s the source of energy that fuels you in the morning to get you going and propel you into class.
So how does all this reduce the bulge?  
When you are working so hard, your body uses excess carbs first and then it turns toward stored fat for the high energy demand. With the 3-2 diet, you’re not storing extra fat because your body is using up daily what you’re eating.
Think of it this way:
• The more muscle you gain, the faster you burn stored fat.
• The harder and longer the intensity of exercise, the more muscle you gain (if you’re eating enough protein).

Yeah, it’s a vicious cycle, but in a good way. Stick with the diet and the exercise and you’ll shed excess weight, gain muscle and be healthier all around.

Next post, let’s talk water. Are you drinking enough…Really…?

Thanks Susan for that great information!   I know I need that 3-2 diet with all the desk work I currently do - so I appreciate the 'gentle nudge' towards achieving a more fit body and more energy!  I'll keep you posted!

The recipes for the green drinks are found at this woman's blog - Beth from California -

Interesting analogy after Nick's Pro Conditioning class today, he said, although they were not his words, he acts on this philosophy each day in class.  "Rock the Boat, so you can see what comes out."

Meaning, as his students, it is his responsibility to push each person to their highest intensity.  He will not allow us to push ourselves to our defined intensity, but as our teacher, he will guide us, encourage us and push us to our farthest limit.  

Will it be difficult?  Yes!  Will we mess up?  Yes!  Will we want to quit?  Maybe...but the fact remains that in our sacred space and in life we all face obstacles.

How you deal with those obstacles defines who you are and determines how successful you are.

Our job, our responsibility is to show up, leave our "stuff", our junk that we carry in our lives at the door and come prepared to "work"!  When our teacher asks us if we are ready to "work" it is our time to internally and externally shine with enthusiasm and respond, YES!

In life staying on the path is often challenging.  There will always be times when we get close to the edge or nearly fall off.

Our practice, dedication and determination are what keep us moving forward.

Nick shared his personal struggle with us today.  Over the last several weeks he has been challenged and distracted.  With the recent passing of his mother, his practice has been effected.  He, more than any of us understands that practice is the only way to stay on the path.

He asked our group this morning if any of us knew what the "Do" in Taekwondo means?  It means, "way of."

Staying the path is our way of staying healthy, it is our way of taking our health into our own hands, it is our way of life.  It is our culture, it is our lifestyle.

Nick explained that in his class we are all White Belts, meaning we are all "pure and without the knowledge", which allows us the opportunity to continue to grow and become the best version of ourselves.

From the moment you walk into Nick's "room", the space that has transformed many a lives you are instantly greeted with warmth and kindness.  

Nick is a 5th Degree Black Belt who is as humble as he is caring and genuinely concerned for one thing, your success.

As a newcomer you may feel intimidated, slightly fearful of what to expect, slightly shameful if you've let your body get out of shape.  But each person, kindly walks up and introduces themselves, no one comes into Nick's room with an ego, or sense of "I'm better than."

During my first class while enjoying the 45 minutes of stretching, folks were chatting and many came by to take a moment and share their personal journey about how long they've been taking the Peak Performer Conditioning class.  Some have been coming for 17 years, others only three weeks.  

The one thing that stood out was the dedication and passion each person had for their own experience, and the encouragement they gave to me, a perfect stranger.  

It was easy for them to relate to my almost passing out, or not being able to keep up, or feelings of nausea, because each had been right there, in my shoes, working through it.  It was easy for them to shout, "you've got this", "good job" or "I've been there."

There was a sweet message that resonated as a woman walked out the door on my first day of class, she said, "you walked through the door."  And as I thought about how sore I was, thinking how did I allow myself to get so out of shape, I kept repeating, you walked through the door, you walked through the door, you walked through the door.

And I will share with you, that walking through the door the first day was one of the hardest things I've done in a very long time.  Faced with personal fear that I wouldn't be able to do it, or that I wouldn't come back after the first class, or that my personal ailments would restrict my ability to perform, trust me my mind came up with a million reasons NOT to walk in the door, but I did.  

And perhaps, she didn't realize the impact of that simple statement, but it made all of the difference in the world.

It's baaaack!  December that is. With all its food, parties and non-stop festivities, December is a tough month for our fitness routines.   I remember once being at a happy hour and making the conscious decision to bid my workmates good bye and head off to the gym!  It really wasn't that hard to do - just remember - you have the choice and you have the power to choose healthy.  Have fun and enjoy the season, but doing it in a healthy and balanced way will give you the energy and strength you need to continue your good habits!   Here is a great website with some different routines to motivate your workouts!!  
Most of us here at Nick's know already the benefits of daily workouts, whether you go to Nick's Conditioning class, a yoga or group class, or hit the weights yourself.    Lifting weights, or even just using body weight, is such a great way to strengthen bones, increase balance and keep you energized.   I believe in taking responsibility to provide yourself with a daily dose of motivation to keep yourself focused on your goals, particularly your workout goals.  Hopefully this article will provide that daily dose for you today!      

What's your inspiration?  How do you "make it happen" on a daily basis?
Post it below and I will collect everyone's great ideas for being inspired and share on a future post!
Thanks!  Pilsung!!

  Here's to Dreaming Big and Making it Happen - Today!

None of us has it easy every day - fortunately we can come to Nick's Pro Fitness and connect with friends while working out our bodies...but we are also working our minds and our souls.....speak gently to yourself, encourage yourself, take time to meditate and breathe -    The Body-Mind connection is so powerful.    Here are two great articles, plus a TED Talk on the subject!  Enjoy and share!!
