Diet Mistake and Morning Workout

Someday you will screw up. That's life. What matters is what you learn from it, how you make yourself better, & what you learn from mistakes.

It’s easy to get down on yourself. Far, far easier than keeping your head up and staying motivated on another day of hard work and tough deadlines. But looking long-term (both into the future and into the past), we can see that things could be a lot harder and things will be a lot better. Stay strong and keep on pushing on.

Life is pretty simple. Don't make it so hard on yourself with silly choices #notetoself

So yeah, I had a big, late, unnecessary meal last night and I felt terrible this morning. I still do. Plus, with the time change and staying up late, I feel a little off track this morning.

But oh well, just need to push hard to get back in the regular routine. We have lots of work to do to finish up everything for the Turbulence Training 2.0 release on Tuesday, Sept 3rd! Exciting stuff.

Today's workout at the Denver Athletic Club done mostly as supersets or 3-exercise circuits:
KB Swings
KB Overhead press
Box Jump
KB Front Squat - loving these
Close-Grip Pushups with hands on KB handles - Good times

Tomorrow is an off-day, but we have lots of filming planned, so that will kick my butt.

Alright, off to work.

If you want to feel better and have more energy, it all starts with what you eat. Avoid processed carbs and liquid calories. Don’t trade seconds of pleasure of lunch for hours of “suck” this afternoon.

AKA - Don't make the same mistake I did last night!

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Identify the one BIG task you have to finish today. Make it your #1 priority. Don't let anything get in your way of finishing it.

Be crystal clear on what you want to accomplish this week. Write it out. Plan your days. Outline your work. Attack the week.

Get a mentor. Build your network. Be coachable. Help others. Add value. Stay strong. Keep pushing. Never quit.
