Lithuania to Lisbon and Legs

Back in Vilnius on Monday and I had a great workout at a very fine fitness facility called Impulse gym.

They had a large area devoted to plyo boxes, sleds, TRXs, powerlifting, and more. Oddly enough, it was on the 3rd floor of the gym, while the cardio was on the 2nd floor.

The workout went like this...

1A) Squat
1B) Box Jump

2A) Front Squat
2B) TRX Row

Today will just be walking... I did a loop of the large airport here in Amsterdam, taking 30 minutes to do the C and D gate areas. Later in Lisbon I'll walk about the town with my friends that I'm visiting.

But right now I'm writing from Amsterdam while on a long layover before my final flight of the day to Lisbon, Portugal. Earlier today, while waiting for my first flight, I got fired up and wrote the following:

Life is simple.


Make the right decisions, right now, for your right life. Always.


Sometimes that means, "Yes, eat the ice cream." But most of the time, it doesn't. Most of the time that means, "Stop eating the ice cream, turn off the netflix, brush your teeth, and go to bed."


Have the wisdom to know the right decisions for your right life and the conviction to make these decisions.


This is how you have more success and less stress.


It starts with introspection.


You are all smart people. You are exceptional at seeing what is right for others, and telling others what to do.


But when it comes to ourselves, we go blind.


The solution is getting outside eyes (from your coaches, and from yourself through introspection... Looking at yourself with outside eyes... examine your habits, decisions, and goals.)


Think about what is right for your life, and then set up your habits, rituals, and routines to make the right decisions for your right life, right now and forever more.
