Meathead Travel Tips

Well, another day, another airport, another lesson in patience and gratitude.

If you're doing any traveling this holiday season, here are a few tips:

1) Plan ahead, arrive early, check-in online and print a paper ticket, too.

2) Carry-on only, until you come back from Grandma's with all your gifts.

3) Let someone else go in front of you in line somewhere in the process.

4) No farting on the plane. Or in the bus. Or on the train. Or even after Thanksgiving dinner when you're on the couch.

5) Don't complain about babies making noise... we were all in diapers once too, and most of us are exasperated schlepping ourselves around airports, now imagine if you had a baby and a toddler in tow and you were by yourself. Have some patience, love, and empathy for your fellow travelers.

T'is the season to be the change you want to see in the world.

Alright, PSA over. Let's talk meathead workouts!!!

Today's Deadly Deadlift session was:

1a) Deadlift

1b) Box Jump

2a) BB Split Squat

2b) OH Shrug

Couple of sprints at the end because the legs felt great from a couple of days off.

Glutes will be sore from these split squats.

Tomorrow we BENCH!

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:

Be prepared with two solutions for every obstacle. Plan in advance for what your 'enemies' will throw at you this weekend & this week.

And if things still go south on you...

Look on the bright side of your mistakes. Learn lessons, make changes, and never make that mistake again. Turn the bad into better.

Push on,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT

PS - This matters most...

The fastest way out of fear, anxiety, and worry is to TAG it. Give THANKS, take ACTION, and be GENEROUS. Stop moping and start moving. Embrace what you have, good and bad, and commit to turning the bitter into better. Control what you can (your thoughts, words, and deeds), and concentrate on what counts (the people and experiences in your life).
