Good morning and happy Monday everyone! it is a beautiful day here in the southwest and I hope that wherever you are there are sunny and clear skies abound. This morning I had a great talk with my girl about happiness. It’s always a great idea to make sure if you’re going to spend the rest of your life with someone, that you continue to go over and examine what happiness is and if you both are on the same page! I’m blessed to have a person in my life who truly cares and loves me enough to have those types of conversations on the regular. Today is a great blessing and thank the lord that we never get what we deserve but what he blesses us with! With that said let’s get this underway.

This weekend I made sure to hit the gym hard because I’m getting back into my gym routine and making sure my body still has what it takes to handle the challenge! So far all systems go as I have been blowing thru my workouts at a good clip. In fact today I will change my focus slightly and do heavier weights with fewer reps so that my body can burn more calories. I’m still not doing all free weights just yet because I’m still trying to figure some things out however I have been going and really focusing on maximum effort! Since I’m working chest and triceps today I will be trying to warm up properly but really get in a hard and heavy lift! The most exciting part is I may be trying out some new lifts today on machines I’ve never done before. My body may not be happy right away but I’m counting on it to adjust as always and produce for me.lol. Lately, I haven’t been doing my stairs as cardio because I’m starting to do more distance walking in the mornings starting this week! My knees and joints need to get accustomed to walking around a lot more if I’m ever going to truly get my stamina and endurance up!

 

My diet has been horrible this week! I say that because while my meals have been keto I’m still going over my caloric intake limit. I’ve also noticed that lately I’m hungry a lot more and fasting has become more and more difficult! These signs let me know that I am not as focused on my nutrition as I should be because before I went to Cali my hunger was super low and my fasting was effortless! The time has come to get back to basics with my diet. The formula always works which means that I have developed some bad habits along the way that are derailing my progress so I’m going back to square one. Keeping my carbs below 35g daily and maximizing my fat burning potential with protein and healthy fats! Going to bed at a decent and consistent time and getting at least 8 hours in! Going back to no food after 7 p.m unless it can’t be helped and certainly no bites of candy here and there. Meal prepping foods that are delicious and Macro specific to my goals and cutting out snacking. It’s pretty simple on paper I’m just refocusing.

I’m struggling with my focus but that will happen in life. The important thing about it is not staying unfocused, not staying down or falling short! As long as I’m honest with myself that I can always do something about it, and there’s the lesson! No matter what we are going thru we have to take responsibility and control and realize that the only way to stay on track is to stay aware of whats working or not working. I’m not going back to who I was and the dream may get blurry but it will never fade! This is my life and I’m the one that needs to keep focused! I love you all and the truth is I love myself too, I love myself enough to be a better man! Have an amazing day homies and thanks for being my support system.

    You can do it. I have faith. Do what you need to do. I agree about we all have ups and downs. It sucks but it’s part of our journey to be better people.
    She sounds like an amazing person!
