Well, good morning and happy Friday to everyone! it’s the last day of the work week and all of you have been pushing yourselves very hard and doing all you can! I for one am very proud of you for all that you have been doing. Lately, I have been realizing that all the things people do that I will never see are so important and I know you don’t always get the credit for your greatness so this is me saying: YOU ARE APPRECIATED FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!
Today is the last day for me in the gym this week as far as lifting goes. I have been working my butt off this week and I feel like I can honestly say I found a great schedule for myself. It feels amazing to be in a rhythm with my body and my workouts! I’m doing my back/biceps today and then I’ll be doing some stretching to help with my weak flexibility.lol. There is no doubt what so ever that I will be doing a fasted workout today, they just feel better to me and the mental game is the most important. If I think it’s working then I will push harder and be more involved and that’s the win-win! The gym has really been amazing for me these last few months and I’m very thankful to have a place that I go that is just for me. The idea that I am going somewhere that will make me better physically and push myself to get better really makes me feel great about myself and that’s all that really matters. The only way to be of service and to help others is to be in love with yourself so that you can share that love with others!
The diet has been going great and my macros have been very good this week! I just wanted to talk about something that has really changed my life. If I have learned anything it’s that the diet and how I eat really makes the whole thing possible. The truth of all of this is in today’s society we all workout more now than we did generations before and yet obesity is more rampant than ever before. The answer is in the foods we eat and the way we treat ourselves away from the gym! Don’t leave your training in the gym or at the park because the bulk of the change comes in the diet! Now I realize this isn’t revolutionary stuff I am writing but if you sit on that for a minute it really will make you change your perspective! There has never been a workout created that will do more for you than rest, nutrition and the study of your own body! You really have to fall in love with learning about your body and what makes it perform at it’s best. If you have problems truly loving yourselves the best place to start is not a relationship or a drink. You can prove to yourself how much you love you by how well you spend time feeding your body positive thoughts and proper nutrition.
Notice I didn’t say give your body the right nutrients, I said the proper nutrients for you! The best way for you to eat and treat your body is all up to you and what works best for what you are trying to achieve. It’s funny that we will go to a job and work our butts off for someone else’s dream then go home and give all we have to our kids only to treat ourselves as if we don’t have things we need to achieve for ourselves. It’s absolutely your responsibility to make the decision to achieve as much for your health as you possibly can. I’m not saying you have to be a world-class Olympian or anything, all I’m trying to say is if you have a direction you want your body to go in then damn it go! Spend some time and love the machine you spend all your life in and learn to give it what it needs to be who and what you want to be. Then you have a love that no one can take away from you because they didn’t give it to you, you did, you feel me?
Please be kind to yourself this weekend and do something fun that you enjoy and bring that beautiful smile with you. You have something others around you need and that’s your presence! Be there, give a damn and appreciate your damn self and that’snot a request.lol.
The picture of the plants like I promised! My poor plants some are doing great but as you can see I had the light too far from them and a few got leggy but I still saved a few.lol.
