2015 Transformation: Day 2 of 80

Today I completed Day 2 of 80 in the gym. I weighed in at 228.5 lbs, which is about 14 pounds heavier than when I finished the last 12 week transformation.

Completing the 4 week DTP program added more muscle, but also increased my fat percentage to like 14% from 10%. Immediately following that, we went into two holidays and a cruise. Not making any excuses, but I don't want to fall victim to that mistake next year.

As with any journey, it begins with a single step. Getting back into the habit of eating and working out feels like riding a bike, but it will require some effort to get it back to my normal routine.

My evenings have to end around 9:30 pm at the latest if I'm going to make those dramatic changes in my life. It will mean a sacrifice somewhere, but it will be worth it.

Today's focus was on chest and triceps. Tomorrow, it's LEG DAY!

The Next 80 Day Sprint Begins Today!

Today is my first day back after a WONDERFUL weekend celebrating successes. Yes, there will be more pictures telling the story of my time in Louisville, KY, but today marks day ONE of my next sprint. Therefore, I'm going to jump ahead to the end and just get things going.

Last year, I learned the value of setting goals and just going all out for a period of time. Well, having completed a successful sprint, it is now time to set some new goals for the next 80 days. That's how many days I have left until the next big event in Kansas City.

So, by April 17, 2015, I will have achieved the following:

1) 6% Bodyfat as a result of the 12 week body transformation.
2) Moved from Senior Rep to Director in my company.
3) Completed Chapters 1-3 of Dissertation.

To do that, I am just going to go all in for the next 80 days. No television, no movies, and nothing extra that doesn't move me forward in these three areas.

It starts today and you are my accountability partner during this process. It means that you'll see a ton of repetitive posts, pictures, and updates while I'm on this journey. Is that ok? Are you with me? Ready to get started?

Here we go...

Adversity Will Either Break You or Help You Break Records

"Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records." - William Arthur Ward

There are times in our lives when it feels like world is against us. Nothing seems to go right and you simply feel like you don't have the energy to continue. It is at these times that you get to find out what you're made of.

When faced with challenges, you have a choice. Will you fight for what you want or will you give in? Sometimes, there will be moments where sitting in the middle isn't a decision you get to make. It will either be one or other, but never both.

Napoleon Bonaparte once said, "Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in."

I totally agree. Take a moment to ponder your options, but then take a stand and go all in. Fight for what you want. Be consistent and persistent in your battle. Once you decide to win, do not stop until you do.

Today is your day. Decide to go all in and get after what you want. Be a record breaker, Champion. Let's go!

Farewell Bahamas! The End of Team Vision's Cruise 2014

In the morning, before we all jumped off the boat, a few of the team members, and their guests, took a picture on the back part of the ship.

Overall, the cruise entertained around 450 friends and family from all over the United States. Each year, the numbers continue to grow, which makes it exciting. We get a chance to meet new people, strengthen old friendships, and discuss our next adventures.

As my virtual tour through the Bahamas trip last month comes to a close, I hope that you enjoyed my perspective.

I know the next big vacation will be in the July/August time frame. Some are talking about going back to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, which is a place I've never been. Woohoo!

Once I get some more information on that trip, I'll be sure to share it with you. So, stay tuned.

Again, thank you for rocking with me. Now, it's back to my regularly scheduled programming.

Until next time...

Focus on Planting, Not Reaping!

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant." - Robert Louis Stevenson

There are some days, like recently, where we want things to happen more quickly than they are. Think about the areas in your life where this may apply. It may be a change in your body, business, or relationships that just isn't happening fast enough.

A mentor once told me, we should enjoy the journey. Instead of focusing on the results, focus on the daily disciplines (actions) that eventually produce our desired results.

As a kid, my mom used to say, "A watched pot doesn't boil." Everything takes time. So it is in our lives. Learn to love the planting process (enjoy the journey). In time, the results will come. Focus too hard on the results and we stop planting. As a result, we will see more discouragement and disappointment (the weeds).

Focus on planting seeds and let God handle the rest.

Make today a great one, Champions!
