Deadlift and Diet Depletion for July

July's Diet Depletion Challenge starts in 18 hours for me. Join me from July 1st to July 31st and cut out at least ONE bad item from your diet so that you get total control over that bad habit. In a month from now, that bad habit will no longer be a temptation for you. You will be the master of your food choices, not a slave. So what will it be?

Find out more here:

For the next 31 days, my diet will be depleted of all:
- dairy
- gluten
- diet soda
- alcohol
- supplements (that includes no fish oil, vitamin C, whey protein, creatine, or glucosamine-chondroitin...I'm taking a month off to see if I notice any difference)

Hit the Stratford Slow Food market today. Picked up grass-fed steaks, almond yogurt (its just blended raw almonds with honey and some "yogurt" cultures), bok choy, zucchini, and strawberries.

July is going to be some good eating on the Diet Depletion!
Before heading to the market, I had a really great deadlift workout. It started with KB Snatches at home, then a bike ride to the gym, deadlifts, box jumps, leg curls, and side planks, followed by a bike ride home.

More great news...

We just passed 16,000 TT Facebook fans. Thank you, thank you, thank you! My gift to you ... a hidden gem of a summer workout

PS - Here's a little mindset motivation to help you stay strong:

From two of my favorite philosophers...

"First, say to yourself what you would be; then do what you have to do." - Epictetus

"The fact is that we live only on a small percentage of our potential because we do not allow ourselves to be totally ourselves." - Bruce Lee

So let's do what we know we need to do, and let's reach our full potential by overcoming our little limitations and living as our BIG SELF.

You can do it.

I'll be right here with you!

And remember...

“What really matters is who we are inside and who we are becoming.” – Epictetus
