Matt’s tips

Don’t get in a food rut.
Working out: reduce your rest time in between sets
Stretching is very important
Regulate your breathing when doing aerobic exercise.
Before and after exercise with cancer surgery
Water drink the right amount of people need.

 

John’s tips that have worked for him:

Drink More Water than you think you need – when hungry drink a glass of water before eating anything
Stay Occupied – the more your mind is off of being hungry the better
Find what works for you in regards to weight loss – this is not a one size fits all
Change your mindset – you can’t say – when I lose weight I will be able to eat x again – no you won’t
Stay away from “Fad Diets” – they may work temporarily but will not long term

Running tips: breathing in a cadence. breathe in on two steps out on two steps
Lower Back pain:  Stretch your hamstrings and your glutes.

As the Olympics begin – The Benefits of Competition and The Lost Art of Sportsmanship 

Richard Battle – Interview here

Where did it go wrong? 

Balance of healthy competition utilized for personal development and building sportsmanship extended to enhance personal relationships has been significantly damaged in the past few generations. 

Competition is beneficial: 

  • Builds physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual muscles to serve us when faced with future challenges. 
  • It Burns zero calories, contains no harmful ingredients, and produces all-natural benefits. 

Athletic contests:  

  • Outlet for competitive spirits and deter applying those physical energies into war and conflict. 
  • When war unfortunately arrives, those sharpened by winning and losing in other disciplines have an advantage over others with less experience. 
  • More confident, resilient, persistent, and relentless to exert themselves until victory or defeat, and thereby enhance their country’s national security. 

Non-Athletic Competition: 

  • Extend to nearly every area in life, not prohibited by do-gooders looking to prevent hurt feelings. 
  • Business, music, dancing, singing, cheerleading, spelling, cooking, card games, and dominoes are but a few other examples of contests offering more to participants than a bit of fun. 

Today: 

  • Have no competition or fight to total victory in unimportant contests. 
    • not keeping score and de-emphasizing competition defers heartaches from losing, they are a tremendous disservice to people in the long term. 
    • Altruists may control some contests, they cannot control the global competition in life where the competitive outcomes determine liberty, self-sufficiency, and sovereignty. 
    • Deferred lessons only exacerbate the suffering once reality replaces the false security the individual previously experienced. 
  • Grace and kindness in victory have given away to embarrassing and demeaning the victims. 
  • Losers often pout, sulk, and whine, claiming the victors stole the match from them or victim status.
    • Defeat requires us to get back up off the ground and get back into the contest to overcome the setback and attain victory. 
    • There is no disgrace in failing, only in not striving to achieve our very best self. 
    • We only lose when we quit, as we forgo the opportunity to overcome our loss and achieve victory. 

     

Good sportsmanship: 

  • used to be a badge proudly worn after contests by both winners and losers. 
  • Today, poor sportsmanship is reinforced with celebration.
    • Muhammad Ali stood over Sonny Liston after knocking him out in a 1965 title rematch. It was the first but not last caption to an image stating, “in your face.” 
    • Billy “White Shoes” Johnson of the Houston Oilers introduced the first post-touchdown dance. 
    • Former Texas Longhorn football coach Darrell Royal used to tell his players to “act like you’ve been there before” when they scored and flip the ball back to the referee. 
  • I believe our quiet confidence can intimidate others with less demonstration than a hollow boisterous display of emotion with little behind it. 

 

Ideals from the Olympic games: 

  • amateur athletic competitions used to measure your personal capabilities against others to pursue maximum individual performance 
  • Degenerated into overpaid professionals using the event to bolster future earnings through sport, endorsements, and other uses of their “brand.” 
  • Athletes clamor to use the “platform” for a social justice statement. 
  • Founder of the modern Olympic Games, Baron de Coubertin, said, “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.” 
  • Games resumed in 1896 for amateur athletics. Rules were strict about competitors receiving remuneration for their performance. Jim Thorpe was stripped of his two Gold medals in 1912 because he played in one minor-league professional baseball game for $ 2.00. 
  • Today, the games are full of professional athletes, and no one discusses or wants to remember the true spirit of the event. 
  • As in so many other areas of life, money and politics has triumphed over principle. 

 

Grantland Rice wisely observed, “When One Great Scorer comes to write against your name, He marks, not that you won or lost, but how you played the game.” 

Most of us would agree we learned more from the defeats than our most significant victories. Both are necessary to build successful people, organizations, and countries. 

How can our actions return healthy competition and good sportsmanship? 

  1. Embrace the benefits of competition despite its occasional pain. 
  2. Proactively work to sharpen competitive skills. 
  3. Display good sportsmanship in victory and defeat. 
  4. Be good examples to others, especially the younger generation. 
  5. Teach others the long-term values of competition and sportsmanship. 
  6. Return the proper perspective of competition and sportsmanship to all contests. 
  7. Enjoy your experiences, realizing none of us can always win at everything

Send in the Marine! 

Tyler Kistner served 9 years in U.S. Marine Corps and served in the elite Marine Special Operations Forces, the Marine Raiders. As an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, Tyler was able to fulfill his passion and desire to give back and serve this great nation. He has carried with him that sense of servant leadership and faith through his time in the U.S. Marine Corps and Special Operations Command to serve others and our country before himself. It is this love of Country as to why Tyler is running for Congress in Minnesota’s Second Congressional District against The profound Leftist, Angie Craig. He lost to Angie Craig and her money machine by less than 2% and outperformed Trump by 8%.  

Because of the unique demographics of The Second Congressional District, it is often referred to as the Heartbeat of America. How MNCD2 goes is how the rest of the country is going. And it is now considered to be the most vulnerable seat in the Nation.   

Tyler is a political outsider who in his first election was in one of the closest races in the country this next election he’s in one of the top races in the country.
