Just Another Tuesday...
Next Round


Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Ever want something but were never willing to sacrifice for it?  Chances are it never came to be or it is eluding you now.  Achievement often does not arise without some level of sacrifice - giving up, avoiding, altering in one way or another.  Maybe it's what you eat, how you spend your time, and/or practicing some self-control.  Regardless, sacrifice is going to be necessary if you want to be able to say "I did it."  If what you read here strikes a cord, grab hold of this opportunity to reach your goal.  What are you longing for and what will you need to sacrifice in order to make it happen?  Don't interfere with negative self talk; there is no room for "yeah, but" or "what if" or "how in the world?"  You do have all of the capabilities to put this into motion and to deny the indulgences that are the only things standing in your way.  It is your choice.  No one can do it for you  ... and no one will be able to keep you from it once you decide it's yours.

Josh L, I will choke you out with the band that I used to finish my pull-ups. "Slow"? You were on round 3 when I finished round 1. 12:?? Not rx'ed, I'm usually slow, but today was terrible - don't know if it was jet lag or what...

OHS has come a long way... 135# x 5 (PR). Still not happy with it, but miles ahead of where I came from.


OHS x 5 = 110
Went for a one rep and hit 125, a huge milestone for me as I set that goal for myself a long time ago...time for a new one!
12:54 w/ 2 purple bands for pull-ups
