In Love With a Stripper

In Love With a Stripper

Had a great weekend, spent most of Saturday resting around the house.  I hit the gym 5 days in a row so my body was grateful for the rest. But lets talk about those Patriots!!! Yup, my Team!  I literally ran out the front door into the street yelling Patriots Patriots Paaaaaatriooooooots! I was ridiculous lol and I loved every minute of it.  What I didn’t like however was not know enough recipes to make my super bowl party Super, so I went to my moms house instead of going to any parties where…

Shake It Up

Shake It Up

Starting to “Dherbs Full Body Cleanse” is truly one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself; I’m seeing the results and liking them. One of my favorite things to make is a shake. I know I’ve been drinking everything green for a few weeks now, but that’s because they’re good and they work! Lol. Sense there’s hardly any bad combination when it comes to veggies and fruit pairing almost any combo tastes great. Wanted to share with you guys my favorites so far. The Avocado Rush 1-Cup Spinach…

SELMA

SELMA

Me and Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacy hanging out at the IPAC Conference Today was a beautiful experience; I knocked a bunch of errands out including the grocery store, hit the gym, hung with my god mom for her birthday, saw my aunt and then finally landed at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live.  Along with Councilman Curren Price (9th District) and the Centurion Fire Fighters I was invited to procure talent from the Selma film for a private screening and Q&A panel for 700 high school students. Henry Sanders who…

Hey guys doing things a little differently this week. Decided yesterday that I’d speak after returning to the gym today. Yup returning. I was out for the count last week due to a knee injury and a car towing. Not all week, but four of the seven ya Saturday shake going up! And boy was it needed. Those #HungerGames were starting to flare up. Lol. No nickname for this one I was just hungry as hell and needed a fix. I think I damn near sprinted from my car to the kitchen. Lmao #seriously…

An Avocado Done Saved My Life!

An Avocado Done Saved My Life!

What a day, what a day! One of the things I beat myself up about is a lack of preparation. Its very important for those of us under construction to have a plan in place. Of course I say this to you and myself all the time but for some reason I don’t always manage to get things in line. I know the difference between stumbling and setting yourself up for failure. Getting the morning started.

Bending like Bamboo

Bending like Bamboo

Accept where you’ve been so you can embrace the changes that are coming. Pictured: Pops when he was alive. One of our only pics together. This was New Years Eve around 2005 I was close to a whopping 500lbs. How’d it get so far…I emotionally ate my way through everything I would go through, good or bad. I thought I was happy, but as you can see…I was miserable. I no longer live this way and to date have lost nearly 200 pounds. I still have a ways to go, but I’m going. I’m excited about life…

Thursday – When All Hell Breaks Loose

Thursday – When All Hell Breaks Loose

Woke up this morning to my neighbor baming extremely hard on my door “hurry up, their towing our car!!! Of course without fail I was up and outside before my truck was rolled onto a flatbed. “Hello, hello, what’s going on here, I was not parked in the red” I exclaimed. “Well you have $1,100.00 worth of parking tickets” the attendant said to me and continued to proceed with moving my car onto the bed. I came to find out that the DMV, which we all hail, as the “land of the unnecessary attitude” is only a collection…

The Weekend Round Up: Week 6

Yooooooo! America! Hope your weekend was good because mine took the cake. Well, the flax seed cake, nevertheless some damn cake was had! I don’t have much to report other than I had an astounding kind of weekend due mostly to my hang with my moms for her 61st birthday. She came over to my place and just hung out. I made a few of her favorites like my fresh pico de gallo salsa, a fresh green garden salad, sweet potato spicy dip and of course my famous baked vegetable mix. Most of this was for her,…

Phuck This I’m Cool

Phuck This I’m Cool

The first thing I do when I wake up is sit up on the side of the bed, have a glass of water and 5 capsules. I make my way to the kitchen to prepare my Green Abominator (I find that a Green Juice with less of the sugars of fruit get me moving better) and before you know it it’s time for 5 more of those damn capsules. I move into my day and then by noon another round of you guessed it! Capsules. Baby, I got so tired of those capsules that I…

Slapped, Kicked, Drugged Out and Standing…Again

2010 at my heaviest weight 415lbs Sometimes the ass kicking you need is one you definitely didn’t ask for. I say this because I’ve spent the past three or four days trying to pick my face up off the floor. There are times when you will need to hear what you didn’t ask for anyone to say. Be grateful. I wanted to start this Monday blog with an upbeat you can do it type message, and it would have been nice to have that kind of pick me up, especially with me starting up the…

But “First Things First” as my good and spicy friend Vikki would say. Wake Up Wednesday… WHAT THE HELL IS IN THAT MEAT? Don’t believe me just Watch.   DISCLAIMER:::: This is my opinion and not the opinion of Dherbs.com. This is my account of my attempt to purchase my favorite burger at a popular fast-food chain on the West Coast. Needless to say, I did Not make it, I ended up with a salad from another spot that I could trust was serving Natural lettuce!!! Laaaaawd What do you…

Whose Report Will You Believe

Whose Report Will You Believe

Me, earlier this year. Who did you meet in yourself this year? A question I try to answer at the end of the year, every year. This years question, though the same as last years has so much more weight to it (no pun intended). 2014 was a year of unmarked territory and conquering, I faced challenges with my health, my wealth, my stability but more than anything I faced myself. I faced my heart and mind, the idea of who I believed I was, what my foundation was. I mean I…

You’re moving at no one else’s pace so keep it steady, focus on your own race, keep the momentum and you’ll see your progress. Remember this, every time you put a fork into your mouth that’s a new set of calories you’re adding to your body. If you want to win this race it’s not simply about hitting the gym, hitting the treadmill the elliptical and a bunch of weights, it’s about a state of mind and the decisions we choose to make. The decision to be on the Full Body Cleanse is also…

What it do America! Yes, you guessed it, I’m a happy guy today I’ve been having a ball, feeling good and making life happen! And before I make this next week happen, I need to tell on myself. Yes. Your fearless leader got smacked in the face by a fried chicken thigh, a piece of chocolate cake and a few pieces of bacon. Now of course this didn’t all happen on the same day…but that s#*t did happen. And in case you’re wondering, I did enjoy it. It was mmm, mmm, mmmmmmmmm, good. Lol. …

The Weekend Roundup: Week 3

Busy busy busy that was my weekend in a word, busy! I was a bit of everywhere doing a bit of everything. Lets see, there was a Toy drive and performance, I worked out all weekend, I taught class, I handled a few things for my church, got a couple meetings done and finally got some time in with my moms. I don’t have any complaints; my kids were a delight to teach at Lula Washington’s, the toy drive for Union Rescue Mission was a success, we’ll be able to help a lot of families…

All or Nothing

All or Nothing

It’s easy to see and say, but how often is it easy to just do? No fluff, no stuff, just doing it! Arguably there are many things that you can just do and plenty of folks who do just that…they Do It! Sounds simple enough… So, I want everyone reading this blog to stop, clap your hands consecutively three times and say ‘Weight Be Gone” Did it happen? Are you the exact size you long or desire to be? Is your waist the size it was when you were in college or better yet, does your Tux or dress…

The Weekend Roundup: Week 2

I have to admit, there is definitely an ongoing struggle between good and evil… Good food vs. Bad food. Now I’ve had my fair share of both. But I’m seeing the results of fine decision making now more than ever. You see the weekend is usually when I’ll have that one good cheat meal a week; nothing too crazy, like a whole ham or something, lol, but taking liberties that I wouldn’t normally while on the Full Body Cleanse. When I started this journey I’d placed it in my mind what I wanted to…

The Outstanding Effort

The Outstanding Effort

How many times do we say one thing and do another? How often do we commit and then find the wiggle room, easing our way out of whatever responsibility, task or commitment we’ve made. I found myself in the question; are you making an Outstanding Effort toward your health goals? I had to answer honestly and quickly. I didn’t want to spend anytime in the space of rationale. It’s easy to become trapped by false disciplines, never pushing the line or going the mile, the Extra mile. Today I made the choice to do more. I shifted my day around…

Your Best Foot Forward

Your Best Foot Forward

The shoe matters, I don’t mean my shoes should matter to you, but what shoes you workout in, walk in, they matter. They also decide how well you enjoy the workout and the distance you’ll go on a treadmill or a hike. The shoe matters! Being uncomfortable and trying to live with it, stick it out is a no, no. You have to make sure you’re thinking about your total health, your feet are the true stars in your journey. Yes, your self will and the Dherbs Cleanse is great but if your feet quit, ya ass is out of luck….
