Last week was Murphy's Law...it was a bit of a disaster around the office. This week is much better...but still one major problem to solve. The spring
weather sure helps you look at things optimistically though...
Today I'm going to share two of my favorite mindset tips on fat loss...they are challenging, but hopefully the weather is nice where you are and you'll look at them the right way.
But first, my Meathead Workout
1) Hang Clean (3x3)
2A) Med Bench (3x3, 1x8]
2B) DB Row (3x15)
3A) DB Inc (2x8-12)
3B) DB Triceps (3x8]
3C) BB Curls 3-0-2 (3x10)
Crazy chest and shoulder pump. Could barely get all the reps...but I did better this week than last time in the bench and with rows.
Today's Blender Drink had a couple of fresh additions - coconut milk & kale
Unfortunately, the coconut milk "drowned" out the taste of the raspberries.
1 frozen banana, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, kale (just a little), walnuts, cashew butter (just a little), almond milk, and coconut milk (4 tablespoons). I'll try again tomorrow.

And now for my two favorite mindset tips for fat loss...
#1 - Accept the consequences...
Can you eat pizza on a fat loss program? Sure. Can you drink? Sure. Can you lie on the couch instead of working out? Sure. Your choice, your consequences. Remember this..."Bear in mind the single universal law of causality... there will be consequences from your actions, and you must be prepared to accept them." - Simon Black
#2 - Fat loss is simple...
Fat loss is simple when you accept how difficult it is. But when you accept that you will have to make long-term lifestyle changes, eat smaller portions, avoid junk food 90% of the time, exercise consistently and intensely, and hang around the right people, then you see it is a very simple thing to do...you just have to accept that you have to do those things - without exception - to succeed.
Let me know how that helps,
