Houston’s Alan Bishop - “When it comes to a mindset, I want to inspire a person.”
My 3rd of 3 articles from my interview with Coach Bishop:
3 great articles. Thanks for posting.
You’re welcome. Coach Bishop is a good guy and a fun interview.
Awesome stuff Kris! Thanks for the write up. That third part was particularly great! Bishop is a huge part of our success and should be taken care of accordingly. I hope he’s here to stay for a long time.
I would love to play basketball just to get the food…
It looks great but I am not sure I burn enough calories for their portions!
My problem is that I eat like I always have, but am not as physically active as I always was. When I was in high school, I couldn’t get above 135 regardless of what I ate, until dad made me quit football in the middle of the 11th grade. By time I graduated I was 145, but still very active. Now I eat the same way and am over 200 – not a good look for a guy 5’-6" tall.
Same for me – never could gain wait until I started spending most of my week sitting behind a computer. I am 6’1" ish and got up to 210 to 220 lbs at one point.
2016-2017 was my turning point when I joined a virtual Health program at work that was comprised of a weekly meeting with a coach and other members learning and discussing healthier living. Some of my healthier trade-offs were wrong but most of my issue was inactivity. Corrected both (and paid attention to my portion sizes) and got as low as the 170s. I thought I looked a little sickly at that weight and have settled in the 180s for now.
0.5 lb to 1 lb of weight loss per week was the goal – people scoffed at that as being too slow but that is 25 to 50 lbs of weight loss in a year without binge dieting / fruit cleanses / etc.
It was funny to think about how I would pass up no-name gas stations because I wanted to put quality fuel in my car but I wasn’t willing to put in the same effort and concern to watch what I was putting in my body for my overall health.
If you don’t have your health you don’t have anything.
Heard that decades ago. Did not really believe it.
Now I am a big believer.
