Another Week Down – Weight Watchers Done The Lazy Way

Larry Rivera 2009Well my friends another week down. I feel differently this time around. When I was 30 I didn’t bother paying much attention to the way I ate. I simply worked my ass off.  I found a picture of me back in 2009.

Back then I was a man on a mission. I pretty much have been on the heavy side most of my life.

I finally came to a place in my life where I felt I needed change.  I would like to mention that although I say heavy. I have always been strong and fast.

I have always been active, I played sports outside, I lifted weights when I was a teenager and young adult. And then there is martial arts.

Even though I was heavy set, I still trained and had a high level of martial skill.

I figured at 30 I may as well look the part. What happened to me was that part of my regular training was jogging on the treadmill. I enjoy doing that. It’s a chance for me to reflect on my life and the directions I want to go. My old treadmill finally broke that threw me for a loop. I got so use to having that piece of equipment that I sort of went into a slump. On top of that I was having the best internet marketing year of my life.

The combination was I went from 184 lbs you see me in the picture above all the way back up to 226 lbs. Terrible I know! I am about to be 39 and staring down 40 I don’t want to go into my 40’s over weight. Rather than working out like crazy I am actually paying attention to how I eat.

This time around I am incorporating all the things I found to be helpful throughout the years and weight watchers ranks up there and I’ll tell you why.  Weight Watchers really doesn’t tell you how to eat. What they do is they tell you what it’s going to cost you to eat via the point system.

I like figuring out how much food is going to cost me because I can monitor the amount and type of foods I choose to eat. Currently I am dropping weight every week and it feels good. Here is a picture of my current weight loss track.

What’s Been Going On With Larry Rivera

Hey friends,

It’s been a while since I posted here. I have a few projects going on at the same time. I think maybe I should of planned out everything better. Because I wanted to get started the new year all guns blazing I decided to take on some challenges..

I am on the last day of my 90 day vlog challenge that I started and I am still in the middle of a health challenge I started. On top of that I finally started building the martial art website I always wanted to build.

Combine that with supporting an online business opportunity that I am a part of mix a family into that and you have a over worked Larry Rivera. That’s okay though, I am feeling good about everything I am doing.

I want to take a moment to reflect on the past 19 years of my life. It was 19 years ago that I started down a road learning martial arts. In the beginning my idea was that I would teach kung fu. Sounded like a great idea at the time. Once I got started in the industry I started seeing how difficult it was to teach martial arts.

The main reason is because deciding to learn martial arts is a luxury and like all luxuries if you don’t have the money for it, you can’t do it. The economy hasn’t been that great for many people.

I started learning how to market on the internet in 2002, it has always been a dream of mine to combine the two skills. It feels like everything I have done for the past almost 20 years has brought me to this point in my life.

Have you ever felt like that?

Larry Rivera Dot Com Is In Need Of Some Serious Love

Over the years I have been stumped with what to do with this domain. Some folks would say I should brand myself here and make it more of a professional appearance.  I only bought Larry Rivera because it’s my name and as a marketer I was taught that I should own my The problem though is I have no desire to actually brand myself. I’ve always been a behind the scenes kind of guy.

I admit though, I really need to figure something out here as far as web design is concerned. I know I want to keep it a blog. I’ve been through a dozen or so themes over the years and still haven’t found something that I can say I truly love.

If you have any ideas what theme I should use I’d love to hear your suggestion.

What Content Should I Talk About On Larry Rivera Dot Com?

This is a hard one, I still don’t know what to blog about here. Talk about needing some serious direction. I know some people get their and they talk about there business. I like to believe that I am more than just what businesses I am involved with.

I mean I am a husband, father, musician, martial artist, amateur videographer, gamer etc.

You would think I’d have some kind of wisdom to offer here and maybe I do I just haven’t figured it out yet. I do appreciate you coming to visit me here though. I do wish I had more to offer you and perhaps in the future I will.

For now I am just writing here so the search engines don’t forget about me. They like it when you update your webspace.

That’s all for now, talk to you soon
