Seize the day. 🌞 seize it like it's a nazi held beach head on D Day and beat 👊the living devil 👹out of it!
Whatever is slowing you down, whatever is stopping you from making the most of today. You can beat it!...
Life doesn't throw up obstacles 🚧 to stop ✋ us. It throws them up to CHALLENGE us. Our bodies stress response is there to keep us ALIVE! But you have to engage it, only if we tackle what's in our way will it activate.
Muscles 💪 don't grow without resistance.
Intelligence doesn't grow without study 📖.
Wisdom doesn't grow without experience.
CHARACTER doesn't grow without CHALLENGE.
There is a quote that I absolutely love. I don't know where it originated, but it is pure awesome 👏
"The Devil whispered in the warriors ear. 'You can't survive the storm.'
The warrior grinned and whispered back. 'I am the storm'"
That about sums that up.... the thing about Hammer and Chisel -- the program I'm currently doing -- is it's basically two months of leg day...
Holy Crap! I knew sleep 😴 was important for building muscle and recovery, not to mention just being able to work the next day... but this?
Get your 7 hours!
It doesn't matter so much what you do, just that you do something to challenge yourself. 💪 Get up, get moving, put some physical stress on your body and it will respond. Your body is programmed to be lean and strong. Processed foods and sitting at a desk all day are unnatural aberrations that dull the senses and weaken us. Take control. Get active. Eat real food.
I've been considering getting a Fitbit... reconsideration is now in order.
I won't lie, I love the idea of these devices. My Garmin GPS watch was been great for tracking my running over the years, and I love the idea of something that tracks health telemetry throughout the day.
Looks like I'll be waiting a while now though. 😞
Well, that certainly looks deliciously unacceptable for anything resembling a healthy diet...
I have to admit though, I'd probably eat it! Anyone know somewhere that serves whatever this dish is called?
Didn't want to do it this morning. Bed 🛌 was too comfy and sleep 😴 felt too good. Not to mention, total body soreness from the last couple days. Got up and got it done ✅ anyway. 💪 This is why it's good to have short "recovery" workouts built into the schedule. Gets the ❤️ pumping and increased blood flow into the muscles so they can repair, without overdoing it.
So... uhm... yeah... don't leave an open shakeology cup in your car! I don't think I would be drinking from that cup ever again. 😜
