What Can You Get Done in 2012?

Earlier today I was invited to do another Tough Mudder. I laughed. I'm done with that BS. Those races are fun, but they are getting in the way of my real training goals. I've not gotten as strong as I want. Too many training sessions missed because of Tough Mudder tapering and recovery.

So it's time to get back to my priorities.

Today's workout:
Deadlift, Military Press, Front Squat, Good Morning, Shrug.

Four months left. About 120 days. What do you have left in you? What is there still to accomplish?

Think dammit, take this seriously. This is your life. And life is not a dress rehearsal.

Stop paying lip service to your goals. Stop dreaming about dreams. Start living as if they really mattered. Today. Right now.

"We are entering the last few months of 2012. That means if you lose 1-2 lbs on average of fat per week, you could be as much as 32 lbs lighter by Christmas. Now that's a cool gift. Just something to think about." - Mike Whitfield, CTT,

Today's Kickbutt Mindset:
"The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny." – Albert Ellis

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."— Dale Carnegie

"Let no act be done without a purpose." – Marcus Aurelius
