I searched around for more information on the Dallas Desperado Tryouts yesterday. I found some FAQ’s that had some information in them that was surprisingL Practices are every day from 8a.m. – 2p.m, the minimum salary is 28,000 which comes out to about 1700 per game, very few people are actually chosen from the try-outs, but some have been and have even been drafted into the NFL.
This week I started getting up at 6 a.m and going to the gym. I’m always too tired in the evenings to really be productive, plus, working out in the even just takes up too much time. I’ve started to realized that home ownership, plus Grad School, plus general life busy-ness is not something that can be accomplished successfully without taking an aggressive approach. So I’m kicking up the aggression and learning to use it to my advantage.
Along with 6 a.m. workouts I’ve started watching my caloric intake once more. I decided not to be too rigid, but to be mindful of what I am eating, this approach allows for flexibility with liimitations – which is basically a Weight Watchers approach. I’ve been eating lots of lean proteins and veggies and taking fruit to work with me. There is this guy that is always eating fruit during meetings. Chomp, chomp, chomp. He bites away in to crisp Granny Smith apples, plums, grapes, yogurt. He’s very thin and he’s always eating. He’s actually inspired me to take fruit with me to meetings because often times in meetings you are just listening and piece of fruit will keep you alert and it’s good for you.
So my plan is to really take an aggressive approach to my life in all areas, school, work, diet, budget, relationships – it’s very taxing, but I think in the end the results should pay-off. Along the way I am going to get ready to be one of the few people who actually get picked to be a Dallas Desperado. I’ve got 90 days that will be filled with excerise and protein powder. Should be interesting.
