Year of Push 2.14 3 Types of People

Guys, can you believe it’s April 20th? We are nearly halfway through 2017. Are you taking advantage of each day?

Are you willing to set a micro goal for the last 10 days of the month? Is there an excuse you can stop making for 10 days or a small action you can create some consistency with? Let’s make the rest of our month the best of our month!

It’s another group workout day today!

“Benchwarmers”
Teams of 3:
3 Rounds:
100 Calorie Row
50 Bench Press (135/95)
400m Team Run

I modified this today to go solo because my stomach is still unsettled. So, my workout looked like this:

3 rounds for time:

30 cal row

25 bench press

25 cal bike

My goal was to move with a consistent pace, which I did. I think my chest will feel that bench press tomorrow!

Today is LIVING what I wrote about yesterday – instead of fixating on what you can’t do, focus on what you can do.

I didn’t feel like I could go at 100% today and there’s no need for me to feel the pressure of being on a team and bouncing around on a run.

Instead, what can I do? Modify and bring my best effort. Done.

Please guys, stop being a victim of all you can’t do. There’s way, way more you can do.

Along those lines, I saw this note scribbled on the bottom corner of one of the white boards at the gym. It was right in front of my bench today:

It says 3 types of people:

  • Those who watch things happen
  • Those who make things happen
  • Those who say, “what happened?”

Below that:

  • Do what has to be done
  • When it has to be done
  • As well as it can be done
  • And do it all the time

Which type are you? What can you do today to make things happen?

On the food front:

I’m still not feeling entirely like myself. Case & point: I had zero coffee yesterday and I haven’t had any yet today. That hasn’t happened in YEARS.

Because I’ve been kind of queasy, I’m sticking to sparkling water before my workout and chicken soup afterwards.

While I bought mine at Whole Foods, this would be a super easy & fat loss friendly soup for anyone to make. It’s literally just chicken stock, carrots, celery, onion, chicken, salt, parsley & pepper.

That seemed to go well (it didn’t go well yesterday) so I had grilled chicken strips from Paleo Power Meals for dinner. All is well that ends well!

    Hope you feel better soon!
    Today 3 of my potential workout buddies bailed on me to go do something else. So i had the choice to either not go and get my second workout this week (one of my 3 big rocks) or get my act together and go ANYWAY. I went and did a great boxing session. Had fun and felt proud. Thank you for all the inspiration i get from you and your insightful daily motivations and podcasts 🙂
