REAL talk with Gary

REAL talk with Gary

By Gary Winchester
Sometimes you feel like the hero and sometimes you don't. Regardless of how you feel you are simply not alone. For years I thought I was the only one with a "backwards" brain but I discovered I have Borderline Personality Disorder (which will be discussed often) meaning I have different cognitive functions. Real talk with Gary is a way for me to share my journey and stories hoping they help you, even if you are the only one it helps.

Or maybe you just feel a lot of pressure in your life. we come to into life and into our jobs, putting a lot of pressure on ourselves, maybe more pressure than what's actually there, because we want to perform at a certain level and we want to perform at that level every single time.

Working Out and Supplements with Erika Potts
In this episode Erika Potts from Oils4TheMend.com and I talk about Working Out and Supplements. We share our thoughts on the current mindset in the fitness industry when it comes to working out and supplements. It was a lot of fun recording this with an awesome friend and brilliant fitness pro.  There's products that you can take to maximize your workout, but you and I both know that a lot of those products are filled with chemicals and junk with massive side effects like killing your kidneys. I mean, if a product has to have a better product within it to make sure it doesn't kill your kidneys that should give you a warning.  What's your thoughts? My thoughts on that would be no I was also in the past took a bunch of stuff I never did like steroids or anything but you know, whatever was in the cabinet at the gym that's supposed to amp up your workout...

Fitness Mindset with Erika Potts
It's so much fun to talk with my good friend Erika Potts from Oils4TheMend.com, but it was special to be able to reflect on our past experience in the fitness industry and how our mindset was to how it is now. Our goal is to help you improve your fitness mindset so you don't struggle like we did. Hope this helps you! So I've noticed the mindset with fitness, this is probably going to be higher but I'm gonna say 98% of the people believe this, is that it's all about weight loss and muscle gain and that's it. I mean, that's, that's what it is for them. Yeah, you do the internal first and all these other things fall into place. It's beautiful the way it works, and they catch on to that and then there's days where they come in and they're frustrated. Like, you know, we've been doing this for three months and I haven't reached my goal. Like, well, we need a little bit more time. But then the battle they have is I haven't reached my goal but yet all these other things are happening. Thank you for listening!

In the next episode we talk about a fitness mindset, in the third episode we talk about working out and supplements. In the fourth episode we talk about Erika's oil journey where she talks about the meaning behind the name of her website.

1,000 And 1 Excuses
I can come up with so many excuses for not uploading a podcast episode this morning but as I dig into why and use some self awareness I discovered there really are no excuses. Even while battling a sinus infection and prostate infection.

Or maybe I wasn't clever and I thought I was But anyways, if you watch the video I give it a little details about what it means to be record the whole to kind of sum it up. Basically in this three years of being a stay at home dad I've discovered I don't really fit in with stay at home moms, I'm not really fitting fitting in with stay at home dads. I'm not really fitting in and can be honest, I don't really put much of my life fitting into anything. Even when I was in the military, and it really fit into that. What you would typically think marine would be or look like, I didn't really fit into that. I was different. So even in this sense, I'm different. I'm different from stay at home mom, because I'm a dad. I'm a dude, I'm a guy. I'm a man. I'm different from stay at home dads because I don't fit that preconceived. You mold or the idea of what some people think is stay at home dad is most of the time it's because I tend to be a helicopter dad. That's just me.... Hey, podcast listener.

So, let's get into the episode. What's up podcast listeners? Thank you so much for joining me on this episode hashtag one take wonder. Yeah. Um, so I did a video on Instagram TV. I don't remember how far back that was it depends on when you're listening to this could be a while back but I did a video called hashtag one take wonder the whole reason why I did that was the whole idea behind one take wonder. So I have let me just backtrack a little bit. Hi I'm Gary Winchester, I'm your podcast hose. I'm an essential oil guy stay at home dad and entrepreneur. So the whole reason behind doing hashtag one take wonder was it allows me to create content that is on my heart to create I have a desire to create content I love producing content. But I've always struggled with producing perfecting content, I've always struggled with producing content that is an extremely high quality. And honestly, really good content like that from coming from one person takes a long time. And with how my life is right now, as a stay at home dad and entrepreneur, I am constantly on the go. So I need to be able to create content that's quick and on the dough. That also gives me freedom. So I create content on my phone and edit on my phone and post it from my phone. So I have to use these tools that are at arm's reach, really, to be able to share what is on my heart, what's on my mind and If you listen to my relaunch episode new name, I talk about why rename, rename the podcast...

This podcast is all about my life as a full time stay at home dad, Essential \u014cil Guy and co-founder of Winchester \u014cils. In this episode I will talk about music, the bounce back and emotional stability. Music Soothes My Soul I love music! I love Christian hip hop music the most, something clean that has a great beat. One of my all time favorite songs is by DC Talk from their FREE At Last album, \u201cLean On Me.\u201d I grew up listening to music all the time. I fell asleep with my Sony Walkman playing music. For those of you who do not know what a walkman is, ask your parents or someone thats 37 plus. I was in the church youth choir, I loved singing, creating mixtapes and recording myself like I was a radio show host. Guess I did not grow up in that area yet. I noticed that when I listen to music I am focused, energetic and excited about the task or chore I am currently doing. I also noti
