It’s actually 2.30am as I write this on Saturday the 5th March 2016.
I’ve had 3 hrs sleep, i’m absolutely pooped and feel like i’ve been on a 2 week booze bender!
My sleeping mask remains wrapped around my head like a tight bandana. My slicked back hair has become a bush of pure mess. The sacks below my eyes are filled to the brim with water, tired and puffy.
My upper back ache’s from my intensive training. I’m sat here writing this post like some Quasimodo figure, due to my chest and shoulders being destroyed from the Sally Up Push Up Challenge.
My brain feels as though it’s about to burst out of my skull, as it pounds like a fast drum roll. The aftermath of adrenalin has left it’s mark, leaving me temporarily scarred.
I feel as as though i’ve been in an accident, served with a side portion of whiplash, as the nerves on my neck pulsate with tenderness and send signals to my brain letting me know I’m fatigued and need a rest.
This past 2 weeks i’ve:
- cycled 189km (117 miles)
- endured 6 gruelling weights workouts
- walked 210,253 steps (around 15,000 steps per day)
- completed 70 x 1-1 personal training sessions
- added 4 new Youtube Video’s
- written an article for my local news paper
- completed 4 blogs
- read 3 books (The Big Short, A Whole Life, Light Shining in the Forrest)
- listened to one audiobook
- listened to 9 different podcasts
It’s been a rollercoaster, i’ve had my ups and downs (I always do), i’ve come to accept this is a part of life.
I’ve had moments of elation, moments of frustration, moments of confusion, moments of strength, moments of weakness, and moments of pretty much every emotion one goes through on a daily/weekly basis.
Write now as I write this sentence I feel nothing but power. I feel like i’m becoming better as each day passes. I’m learning, absorbing information like a sponge absorbing water.
I feel alive, i’m putting in the work to become the best version of me. I’ll do whatever it takes.
I feel like a warrior on the battlefield and I love it!
I have 24 goals that I need to achieve this year and nothing is going to stop me.
Are you Making Good Sh*T Happen?
We’ve got to be prepared to do the work to get the results we desire. Whether that’s in business, fitness & health, with our relationships, or whatever it may be – you have to be willing to do the work, invest money, time and effort. You have to be consistent not for one day, or 3 months but for however long it takes.
One of the best things i’ve learned this year…
“You can either have results or excuses, but you can’t have both…”
