Transformation Tuesday

Usually I make a post about some great physical change or even an emotional break through I’ve had and how it relates to transformation.

Today I wanted to change pace a little bit by telling a story…

So last year was my son’s first year of football. He was on JV and by the end of the season he had no interest in continuing to play football. Considering what a great sport it is in itself as well as how it helps build character, strong work ethics and lasting friendships I was heartbroken to hear this.

A friend of mine is a coach for a midget league and had wanted me to bring him there last year but I went with a different team and it caused Tay to hate football. However, I begged him to try another season with this new team and reluctantly, he agreed.

From the first day of conditioning camp I could tell he had a passion and enjoyment for the game. By the end of the last camp he was determined to be a varsity WR. I told him this would require a lot of practice and a lot of training and he agreed. He is now varsity and plays as a TE and an outside linebacker – the amount of effort he’s put in is unfathomable and i’m so proud of him.

Since the start of practice he runs agility drills with me, does some catching as well as strength and endurance. All with little to no push back – last year it was a struggle to get him to do anything outside of practice.

Onto the picture…

Originally, when he started running two miles with me – through the neighborhood, not on a treadmill – we were looking at 23 minutes. Now, before we’ve even hit our first regular season game, he’s cut his time down to under 19 minutes!! That is absolutely amazing!!

I say “he has” because while I do somewhat set the pace, I also make sure he has to challenge himself and I wont leave him behind but I’ll encourage him to speed up. So, we only finish that quickly because he allows us to.

Again, the effort he puts in outside of practice and on the field, I didnt think I’d see after last year’s season but he continues to prove me wrong.

And that lady’s and gentleman is one helluva transformation.

Its Monday Again!

Man what’s up with that?

This Monday thing keeps happening!

You know what that means: back to the grind!

Monday is for restarting and making something, anything, better than it was yesterday!

It’s an opportunity, people!

Take it and run…and not to the liquor store!

Happy Monday!!

I had a dream…

And turned it into a reality!!

The difference between a dream and a goal is: action. I could’ve kept dreaming about being happy or active or fit or even running my own business…

But I chose to make a reality!

How?

By taking action!!

I didn’t make excuses or just close my eyes and think, “oh, that would be great!” I did something about it!!

That’s truly the key to any success. You can start off with a dream, after all that’s how the airplane came about – but had action never been taken we’d never be where we are today. Dream it, then use SMART to make it happen!!

Specific – what is it you want?

Measurable – how can you measure your success as it pertains to your goals?

Attainable – is it possible? (Obviously you can’t lose 100 pounds in a week or be a 6 figure business executive with no high school diploma…. you get the point)

Relevant – is it something you really want something you know you’ll do whatever it takes to achieve?

Time-bound – give yourself a time limit and hold yourself accountable! Hell get others to hold you accountable too!!

Use this for any goal and watch your dreams turn to reality!

Have fitness dreams, you’d like to turn into goals? Get SMART, today!!

All about the back

Dont ya hate when put on a bra or close-fitting top and have that awful back fat?

Or men, when you have on a tank top and the back rolls try to come out and join the party?

Here’s a great way to help tone that terrible problem area. Check out: flatten your back flab for two great exercises to tone to your back girdle!!

Every mini-skirt requires it…

That’s right ladies!

Leg day is required for every type of mini-skirt, daisy dukes and bikinis!

Your legs are the largest most powerful muscle group in your body! They stabilize you, carry you down the street and well, without them you’d look like gumby.

Did I mention, you burn WAY more calories when you work your legs?

So if you burn triple the calories lifting heavy weights, then add to that lifting heavy on leg day…

You have a recipe for total sexiness!!

Never skip leg day!!

Even if you dont think you’re ready, do it anyway…

I have been doing this crazy ass strength and endurance training since the middle of May. Originally it was because I was trying to prepare to train for mixed martial arts (and I still plan to) but now it’s also to see how far I can push myself.

Now, originally when i started, i could only do 5 rounds of warm up and 3 rounds of everything else – and even that took me close to two hours. It was so hard and so challenging on every single muscle in my body that I was having to take several breaks.

It is now August and today, for the first time, I was able to finish 5 sets of EVERY circuit in a little over 45 minutes!!

I wasn’t sure if I was ready to bump up my sets especially after taking a day of strength and endurance off last week but I said to hell with it and did it anyway!!

Sometimes you just have to make yourself do something no matter how badly you really don’t want to! Even on only 4 hours of sleep I still managed to kill this workout and I want you to do the same!

Push hard every day, no matter what! It’s what you choose to do that will get you where you want to go! Choose change, you can’t ever regret bettering yourself but you’ll always regret what you didn’t do!

Stronger

These photos represent someone who has been through hell and back. Someone who has struggled, experienced pain, loss and disappointment.

Many times I wanted to give up. I had the narrow mindset that if I tried I wouldn’t see any type of push back.

Truth be told, one of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn is that when you’re truly making an effort to reach a goal, if you aren’t struggling, you aren’t trying hard enough.

Even today I am struggling with dealing with the difficulty of getting back into the dating scene but realize that if it was easy, I wouldn’t be happy so I push on.

In the gym, I’ve had several fails just attempting to up my weights but the fact that i’m trying and failing shows i’m making the attempt and that if I keep working hard eventually that weight I failed to lift will eventually be lifted with ease.

There will always be struggles but how we deal with them is what defines us.

Leg day in the books!

Leg day complete and I managed to bang out 5 PRs today!!

I couldn’t have done it without the help of this awesome shaker cup! With 3 compartments i’m able to store all the supplements I need from before all the way to after my workout with seamless performance and no need to stop and buy a shake before or after my workout!

Plus, NO clumpy drinks! The shaker comes with a stain steel wire ball so every shake you make is smooth and tasty!
