Grinding it out

Weird day. I just didn't feel like hitting the gym, even after a day off. But I knew that if I could grind it out through a warm-up, that I would have a great session, and I did, even hitting a personal best max pushup set of 60.

Total Bodyweight Reps: 550

200 squats
200 pushups
150 rows

Also did barbell squats.

Followed that up with a stranger than normal blender drink. I put red grapes in for the time ever. The skin doesn't blend up very well. Tasted okay though. Earlier this week I put two oranges in, and that worked better.

Today's Kick Butt Mindset Tips:
"Nothing wins more often than superior preparation." – Kekich Credo #73. Know what you are up against. Know the roadblocks in your way. Identify two solutions for each obstacle. Don't shrug off this advice thinking it's too quaint. It works. Just do it. Better prepare for your battles. Know what you want to get done. Know when you work best. Control that time. Take Action. Do not let others get in the way. OWN your day.

Whatever is in your way, you're stronger than it, you're tougher than it, and you're better than it. You're going to beat it. You must truly believe in yourself. You must end the "I'll give this a try" mindset, and switch to an, "I'm going to succeed" belief. You can do it. Stay strong and never give up on what is important to you. Plan ahead for tonight, Saturday, and Sunday's obstacles now so that you have solutions to all of your temptations.

Have an amazing weekend!

Push on,
