F2FHQ 096 - Stephen Woody of Rock Solid ATA Martial Arts

Stephen Woody is a 5th Degree Black Belt, Xtreme Weapons champion, and now he can add Fat2Fit-bitter champ to his list of accolades. Listen to see how Stephen blew past everyone in our April challenge averaging around 28,000 steps per day.  His philosophies on health, fitness and life in general are worth hearing! Welcome to the Fat2Fit HQ podcast.  I’m your guest host Stephen Woody of Rock Solid ATA Martial Arts and along with me is  Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast we are chronicling our journeys from Fat to Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle, not only in diet but in all areas of life.

Mr. Stephen Woody Stephen is not only our April Fitbit champ, he is also a 5th Degree Black Belt in the American Taekwondo Association.  He owns and operates his own studio in Southern California, near Disneyland.  Stephen started Taekwondo in 1993 thanks in part to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and his mom finally giving in.  Since then he has gone on to win multiple state and district titles.  Most recently he earned first place in Xtreme and Creative Weapons at the Southwest District Championships.  Stephen tells us that outside of Martial Arts he is a husband and father of an 18 month old who loves to spend time with his son.

FROM THE COMMUNITY:

From Kip Foley, Nacadoches,TX I've got 2 ideas. "Flirting with fitness" "Chasing fitness" I also want to just tell you how inspiring each week's podcast is. Keep up the great work. Thank you Kip!! It was great emailing with you. I certainly am chasing fitness!  LOL  We are leaning toward keeping the name as is.  But I like both of these.  Thank you also for the kind words.  I appreciate your input and that you listen!  Chat soon.  - Carol

FROM THE COMMUNITY:Petia via email My name is Petia and I have been following your work on fat2fitq.com since end of last year. I found your your podcast searching for low carb diets, I think. The first podcast I watch was with Dr. Ede. I then began my journey with nutritional ketosis.  I started nutritional ketosis at the end of November last year.  I felt very well initially, best of all the lack of hunger impressed me. However, the past few months have been struggling. Meaning I am not losing weight, I actually feel that I am gaining fat. And then I watched your podcast with Kieffer, he is great by the way, so much knowledge. Kieffer is a star. I read Carb night . My CN journey began three weeks ago and I am enjoying food I have not eaten for years. I am not sure if  it is working for me. I have been trying to pay attention to my protein intake. Also trying to change exercise routine into weight lifting, but it is hard without mentor. So, Carol, thank you for inspiring me, you seem so jolly , lovely and a good person. Thank you for reading this message. And keep letting us know about your progress. Have a great day! With much appreciation Petia

Thanks for writing back and forth with me Petia.  I think you're doing a fantastic job on your journey.  You just keep trying things and like Roger says in this podcast: just breathe.  We forget all the things we are doing right.  I have enjoyed our emails and hope we can continue to motivate each other.  Keep us posted on your journey!  - Carol

Brad Wolfram: I picked up you podcast from FRN and have listen to a few shows. Most recently your recap of Paleo in Austin (where I live), RC Patel and AJ. I am a 50 yr old 5 time marathoner who let himself get distracted by work and bad habits and am working on dropping another 20 lbs.  I listen to your shows on my long weekend walks.  I get out early while still dark during the week so i don't use ear buds then.  Enjoying your podcasts. I also join your FitBit gang!  Keep it up the high energy.  Kind regards, Brad

My reply via email:  Brad: Austin is a great town!  We should've done a F2FHQ meetup over the PaleoFX weekend.  Love Austin!  I'm in Galveston this weekend.  Daylight is breaking through so I'm about to head out for my podcast walk.  It's a kick to think someone is out there listening to me doing the same thing sometimes.  :)  Hey, congrats on your marathons!!  Impressive!  I did a 1/2 once & it about killed me.  Those Tough Mudders have a ton if stopping, sitting & eating along the way.  Not as hard to me.  Hey!  I bet we will do another one- you should join us!! Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzAKGpr_qJ4&sns=em

It's cool that you're out walking & knocking down that 20lbs. Keep it up!  we all get distracted by work.  Great that you're making time for yourself.  Thanks for listening Brad & thanks for the kind words.  Keep stepping!!  - Carol
