Dear Belly Fat, your letter is hilarious.
Please read this classic letter from our dear ol' friend Belly Fat. He hasn't changed a bit since we first heard from him back in 2007 (thinks he's a pretty funny guy)
My workout today: Squats, box jumps, pistols, leg curls.
Heading to Vegas tonight. I promise to do something as relatively stupid as Prince Harry. Key word, relatively. He lives a crazy life, so he had to do something really crazy. I live a tame life, so I just need to do something slightly crazy, like stay up until 10:30pm. We'll see how wild it gets with a bunch of fitness experts.
Rules of the 15th TT Transformation Contest...get your paper, take your before photos, and let's do this. Lots of time to transform before the end of 2012
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Success comes in spurts. You'll work & feel like you're getting nowhere, & suddenly, WHOOOOOSH. Success. It comes in spurts. Never give up. Believe me, I know how you feel. But I discovered that success happens by taking action every day, strong and steady, by overcoming obstacles and powering through the dips, by trudging onward through tough days and getting energized by great days. The backbone for it all was my clear vision of what I wanted to achieve. Each action a small victory, each accomplishment another step closer to my big breakthrough.
And when life brings you discomfort, mental or physical, do not waste your energy trying to repel it. Instead, embrace it. Channel it. Use it to fuel your efforts to persevere through it. Breathe it in, work it out. Do not fight against it, but instead flow with it. That is how you will get through it.
Success is simple, not easy, but simple. Just follow the steps that everyone else used to get to the top of the mountain. Then put one foot in front of the other and welcome the discomfort. Breathe it in, and out. That's literally what I did when climbing hills in the Tough Mudder races
Apply to each rep of your MRT workouts and to every aspect of your goal pursuit in "real life" as well. Step-by-step, rep-by-rep, you will get there.
