Orlando to Toronto to Meathead Monday

Got back from Orlando this morning. Had a real interesting conversation with the cab driver about his former career as a security agent for the rich and famous, and in East LA during the riots in the 90's. He got his start working nightclubs in NYC before Giuliani cleaned up the city. Then he gave it all up a few years ago to spend more time with his family. Real interesting guy. Always good to meet these interesting folks when I travel.

And on my flight home, I realized I'm starting to recognize the flight attendants since I fly so much with Air Canada. AC is my favorite airline in North America. Never have any problems with them.

So I got back to Toronto around 11, and then hit this workout:

1A) Bench
1B) Seated Row

2A) Rack Lockout
2B) Bodyweight Row

3A) Pushups
3B) Tubing External Rotations

Next 2 of 3 days will be off days. Now headed to Passport office to get a new one...have many trips coming up.

Today's kickbutt mindset tip:

If you fall "off the wagon", cut your losses, don't worry about it, and get right back on track. Immediately. It's minor damage that can be dealt with.' One mistake, two mistakes, three mistakes...this doesn't ruin everything. Just make the right decision next time and keep moving forward towards your goal.

Be good,

Craig, If you have one already get a Nexus Card in addition to your passport. They are straight forward to get. Makes going in and out of the USA much easier from Canada. Less time in line-ups (usually no lines at all for the Nexus machines at Pearson).

About a year ago, I had one look at the application and said no way.
