Strength training PLAYGROUND style! Pull ups, step ups, box jumps, squats, push ups, sit ups, and some sprints in between to keep my heart rate up. #training
Stop kidding yourself.
Weight loss is not cute.
Weight loss is not fun.
There’s no diet that “let’s you eat whatever you want”
Or a shake that “tastes like heaven itself!”
No one revels in the idea of getting up at 5am to go to the gym… or late
night runs around the neighborhood despite having a million things to get
Here’s your tough love moment…
It takes hard work.
It takes dedication.
It takes perseverance.
It takes consistency.
You have to be a bad ass. You have to suck it up, buttercup.
You have to dig deep and know that despite the time suck, despite the
missed opportunities for chocolate cake, despite the social events, despite
the pain and effort - it’s worth it.
Ask yourself, are you really up for that challenge?
Will you really dedicate yourself?
Can you really commit to the journey for the long haul?
If there’s doubt - remove it.
You either go hardcore or you don’t at all.
Quit kidding yourself into thinking this is fun and enjoyable.
Push yourself to your limits.
Embrace the suck.
Be bad ass anyway.
Tough run today. After about 20 min in felt queasy and light headed. Couldn’t get my heart rate down. Walked the rest of the way. #dailyworkout
Can you tell which one is before and after?
“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”
