What a day. I've been very lucky this summer. Since arriving home from all my travels in early July, the weather has been near perfect every day out here on the farm and in the big city of Toronto. Today is hot and sunny. Probably too hot and sunny for ol' Bally and his permanent sweater, but it made for a great walk at sunrise today.
After an early breakfast, I got down to the local YMCA for a squat session, my last one for a couple of weeks due to travel.
Funny how my goal was to boost my deadlift and my squat seems to have improved more. It's the old opposite approach of George Costanza...up is down, black is white...summer of George!

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Don't waste energy on worrying. It does not serve you. Put your energy into writing a Thank You card, having gratitude or mentoring. Anything but worrying. Control what you can. Cope with what you can't. Concentrate on what counts. Life is not a dress rehearsal. -
Do the turbie,
