New Territory

Today’s workout involved front squats. Feeling strong and pumped, I decided to push past my comfort zone. I hit 165# for a new PR in my front squat. May not seem like a big deal to you but considering I had knee arthoscopy three years ago, I was extremely happy to make that second front squat.

Getting stronger while remaining pain free, I’ll take that ANYDAY!

There is only one you.

There is only one you.

Society teaches us to compare ourselves to a certain standard. Whether it is performance, appearance, or status we are always trying to “be” something other than ourselves. We have all done it. Each morning, look in the mirror and say something nice about yourself…and mean it. I know it will seem weird in the beginning but before you know it, comparisons to others will disappear. You will become more comfortable in your own skin and embrace your unique brilliance. Be grateful for you, there is no one else like you.

I have been reading a lot of great inspirational nuggets of knowledge from Robin Sharma. His motivational pictures and blogs opened my mind to a different way of thinking. Here is the link from the information I referried to:

The nature of the goals you set is massively important. Goals based on looking better than others deliver less motivation and persistence than goals based on trying to improve your performance. So set “mastery goals” versus “ego goals”.

Sometimes You Just Gotta Pull

Sometimes You Just Gotta Pull

When you don’t feel like it.
When it’s too cold out.
When it’s too hot out.
When you’re tired.
When you’re hungry.
When it hurts to move.
When you’re hungover.
When you’re going through a breakup.
When you’re going through a setback.
When depression sets in.
When life just seems unfair.

Whatever it is, sometimes you just gotta pull. Pull what you ask? Go to your special place that is SOOOOO deep within you, breathing almost seems impossible. Reach down and PULL LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT!


Because it does….
