“Welcome to the Grind” (click to watch) It’s one of my favorite motivational videos, sayings, speeches, etc… I’ve blogged about it before. You may have seen it or heard it before. It’s the best. TCU baseball released it several years ago and it perpetuated across the sports world. My kids quote it, live by it… Continue reading The Grind
I can’t believe I’m so close to Day 80! Including today, I have fourteen days to day 80/80. This challenge was so overwhelming back on Day 1 and now I’m in the homestretch. Several people have asked me, now what? What are you going to do on Day 81. My answer used to be EAT… Continue reading Home Stretch – 14 days to go!
Duh. We all know this and I’m Captain Obvious. But seriously, y’all consistency is key! So I know I have at least one reader … Derrick! He’s always asking when my next post will be up. So this is for you Derrick, king of consistency and your beautiful “running” wife, Connie! I’m doing my thing… Continue reading Consistency is the Key
It’s Day 53/80 and I’ve weighed and I’ve measured. In 53 days, I’ve lost 11.7 lbs. Started this 80 day challenge at 186.3. And now on Day 53, I weigh 174.6. It’s been a while since I’ve been at this weight. It’s nice to be well out of the 180s. It’s not earth shattering results… Continue reading After 52 days, here’s where I am at.
When you feel the need to check-in with everybody but have nothing interesting to say, what do you do? I’m still doing all the things and being good. But I don’t have any earth-shattering, get up off your ass motivation to give. I’m trying to survive myself but I also want to tell you that… Continue reading Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
Well whaddya know? I’ve made it halfway! I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a bumpy road but all-in-all, I’ve done really well. Yes I’m tooting my own horn! Cause seriously, this shit ain’t a walk in the park. I’ve been hitting my calories and my macros (for the most part). I’ve been following the Advocare… Continue reading Halfway There, 40 days to go!
So close to halfway. So close! And it’s just a “keep on keepin’ on” situation. Blinders are on. Focus is key. I’m sticking to the program. I had intended to weigh in with the body analytics truck that was coming to our CrossFit box, but baseball schedules changed and I had to change my plans.… Continue reading Day 36/80 – Keep on Keepin’ On
I didn’t grow up in a gym. I didn’t grow up lifting weights of any sort. I played sports in school, I cheered competitively and I “worked” out at “aerobics classes” in college. I did some circuit machines in regular gyms. I may have picked up 15lb or 20lb dumbbells at a normal gym and… Continue reading I ❤ LIFTING! And you should too!
