You may delay, but time will not. ~Benjamin Franklin

Here is an obvious lesson folks, DO NOT PROCRASTINATE!  I watched the Euro Cup game replays from yesterday until (real) late last night, BUT told myself I would still wake up at 5:45AM to hit the gym.  Alarm goes off, and BOOM goes the snooze button (this process repeated itself until I had to get up and head to the office).  At the office I didnt beat myself up too much because I thought I would have enough time after work to get in my training before Keri and I’s double date.  Lo and behold the movie showtime is at 7PM and my last patient is at 5:45PM, so no gym.

While this is a rather insignificant example (i.e. no real consequences) of what happens when you procrastinate, the message is golden,  EVERYONE is guilty of procrastinating; whether it pertains to work, education, finances, relationships, or anything else that life throws at us.  Procrastinating is a horrible habit, and one that is especially dificult to break.  The main thing is to focus on baby steps and take one week, one day, or even one hour at a time.  A detailed journal, planner, or other device to keep track of your life is also a must (at least for this guy).

My mom always told me, “do it right away or you will forget about it.”  It’s taken many years but her words of wisdom have slowly sunken in(for the most part).  So lets all take one step this week to help break the habit of putting things off, and one step towards a more active and “get ‘er done” life (I  HATE that slogan, but it aptly works here).


And since there is no workout, here is the awesome recipe Keri made last night, it’s Primal, healthy, and will knock the crap out of your tastebuds!

Steak Pinwheel & Baked Veggies

  • Coconut Oil
  • Balsalmic Vinegar
  • Baby Bella Mushrooms (large pack)
  • 3 heads Brocolli
  • 1 large Yellow Onion
  • 5 cloves Garlic
  • 2 oz Raw Parmesan
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • Grass Fed Flank Steak (we used thin strips about 4″x12″)
  • Cotton twine (soaked in water, 1 min)

For the veggies, pour coconut oil and balsalmic vinegar on top of whole baby bella mushrooms and roughly chopped brocolli and onions.  Add salt, pepper, and Italian herbs to taste.  Stir  and place on baking sheet.  Bake @400 degrees for 35 min, stirring occasionally.  Then broil on high for 5-10 min, watching closely so it doesnt burn.

In food processor, blend garlic cloves, raw parmesan, and rosemary together until fairly smooth.

Spread garlic mixture over steak and roll tight.  Wrap with the already soaked twine.  Heat skillet to med/high.  Add coconut oil.  Sear steak and turn every two min to sear all sides.  NOTE: you can use any quality cut of steak, just tenderize to about 1/2″ thickness.  Cook as long as desired, about 10 min for Med-Well.  Let rest a few minutes after cooking and slice lengthwise to create pinwheels. 

I paraphrased Keri’s instructions, so if you have any questions let me know and she can answer them!
