Beginning a new lifestyle is emotional just as it is physical. I have overcome much more emotionally than physically along my journey. My likes, dislikes, desires and goals have changes so much from my “Day 1”.
-
I originally just wanted to feel better about myself. I conqurered that. Then I wanted to compete. I conquered that. Then I wanted to be bigger & compete in figure. I conquered that. Then I wanted true balance. Not the pretend balance many say they have, but REAL balance. Balance to where I ENJOYED this again. Like I did when I started. Where I did it for ME and it was fun. I definitely feel like I lost myself in my goals for a few years. I stopped doing things for me and instead became too wrapped up with aesthetic goals. Is that bad? Not necessarily but it depends on your goals. I think we all reach point where we just change direction. Our hearts desire changes. Too many fight that feeling because it is uncomfortable, but I always go with my heart and adjust to my new comfortable.

Now given, when bodybuilding or chasing a certain aesthetic goal, you have to be obsessed. You cant half ass your effort and expect to reach a serious aesthetic goal. You have to be all in all the time. This is where being honest with yourself comes in. Make REASONABLE exceptions for your goals based on your honest effort. Be real with yourself. Not enough people do this.

I have finally reached a point where I am happy. I am happy with my look, I am happy both the amount of exercise I do, I am happy to eat healthy food to fuel my body, I don’t feel on overwhelming obsession with a treat meal. Some weeks now I have no cravings whereas before it would hurt to scroll Pinterest. I’m not starving, I’m not doing much cardio (maybe 30 -50 minutes a week) and its enjoyable to me because I am choosing to do it. I don’t “have” to do it. The way I look at fitness now is totally different and it has made it enjoyable again.
-
Do what your heart wants. Your emotional journey is most important and fighting it is toxic. Don’t be afraid to change directions and tackle a new normal. A lot may change, but I have loved my journey this far and I don’t ever plan on changing that

First time in Michigan was a success 😎

This wasn't meant for me.
.
Are you sure?
.
Or are you just bitching out because you don't have what it takes in your heart to endure the struggle?
.
Being able to look yourself in the mirror and be honest with yourself in situations where something "isnt for you" about exactly "why" it isnt for you is a necessary tool to cultivate.
.
Because here is the truth
.
99.99% of the time people say "this isnt for me" what they are really saying is Im not willing to do the work required and I want something easier.
.
And if thats the case...success most likely "isnt for you" either.
.
If you were wanting to run a marathon, but every time you got frustrated, tired, winded, sore or bored you turned around and went back to the starting line would you ever complete your goal of running a marathon?
.
Of course not.
.
Life goals are EXACTLY the same.
.
Success is the same.
.
Nothing GREAT is given...it's EARNED...its built by your dreams, thoughts, focus & ACTIONS.
.
The factor that almost always separates those that succeed from those that don't is how many challenges, hardships, obstacles and punches to the fucking face you are willing to persevere through WITHOUT QUITTING.
.
Yes, the old fashioned way...CONSISTENT HARD WORK...is still the ONLY way to get where you want to go.
.
Yes, you are going to get frustrated.
.
Yes, you are definitely going to want to quit...many times.
.
THATS NORMAL...ITS SUPPOSED TO BE THAT WAY!
.
Its hard for all of us! Not just you. How arrogant are you to think you're the only one who struggles & has to fight?
.
This is part of the success recipe (struggle)...and you have to keep moving in the face of these feelings...because thats what causes the growth.
.
Every success has a story and these challenges will be YOUR success story!
.
Everyday you need to look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself what you willing to DO in order to get what you want?
.
If the answer is "Whatever the fuck I have to"....you'll definitely get it in time.
.
If your answer is anything less...you probably wont...and thats the truth.

Such a perfect day hiking with friends... .
Made it to the Colorado river and got to stick my feet in a little piece of home.
It's the little things in life...
Nature is good for the soul.

My favorite @1stphorm Juicy Watermelon 🍉 Megawatt V2 🔥 to give me that Power, Strength & Energy kick + my kicka** workout partner @anacheri = the most insane high intensity glider workout 💦 5min interval sprints (20min. total) - Curtsy Lunges - Pikes - Mountain Climbers - Side Lunges - Plank Hip Abduction - Push-ups with alternating single arm raises/partner taps ** ALL exercises (aside from push-ups) are using Gliders | Each exercise: 3set X 12reps, each side** #1stphorm made me do it 👊🏼 • 🎥: @kevinostaj

Sunday grind!!! Deadlifts and some HIIT work!!! I always do a lot of reps working my way up, to the heavy weight, I felt pretty strong even though I was tired showing 585 lbs for 5 and felt good so I pushed to 675 lbs after the first rep I got happy because I knew I could do one more. Iam not a Powerlifter my conditioning program takes a lot of my time, but as you can see, moving a good amount of weight can be done while maintaining your cardio and conditioning. Also showing a burpee, box jump, dumbell shoulder press complex using 80 lbs dumbells bc I wanted to get a lot of reps in. Kill your week, push yourself!!! I think my @officialgasp clothing helped me today. #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitnessinspiration #stfuat #gymlife #functionalfitness #1stphorm #legionofboom #neversettle #strengthtraining #beastmode #butdidyoudie #fitspiration #neverquit #fitforlife #crossfit #fitnessfreak #teamrebel #usmc #swat #combatathlete #trainharderthanme #gasprelentless

Excuse my exhausted face, woke up at 2:30am just so I can get a workout in! 😴

I know that some days are difficult to get a work out in or eat right, but it's those days that will force yourself to be great! ☝🏼

No matter what your obstacles are, always be chasing after your passion, even if it means no sleep! 😂

Happy Monday everyone, make it a great start to the week! 💪🏼 #MondayMotivation

At times it can be hard to love ourselves.... because we are our own worst critic. We get caught up in envy, greed, gluttony. We want what we don't have. We seek MORE- whether it's fame, wealth, talent.... we focus on the approval of others vs our God given gifts and blessings.
.
.
.
The older I get the more I realize SELF LOVE is the most important love for how we love ourselves will reflect how others will love us. Spend time discovering WHO YOU ARE. Focus on your gifts & blessings. Enrich the world around you with what God has enriched you with.

“And in the church God has given a place first to apostles, second to prophets, and third to teachers. Then God has given a place to those who do miracles, those who have gifts of healing, those who can help others, those who are able to lead, and those who can speak in different kinds of languages.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭12:28‬ ‭ERV‬ --------------------------------------------------Sponsors: Carroll Bariatric, Craddock Oil, Pendleton Security

Ladies and gentlemen, I am very proud to introduce you to one of Alchemy Fitness's first clients and my good friend Eugene Glennon. This is what happens when you stop making excuses, embrace the process, and apply some good ol fashioned discipline!!!
▪️
Eugene and I have been working together since January, and his commitment to the process, the details, and thus his progress has been phenomenal despite some immense personal challenges. He made a decision that he wanted to be the best version of himself, and he is not let anything stand in his way. I'm honored to know you - killer work brother - that's 17 lbs down, and FOUR INCHES OFF THE WAIST - can't wait to see how far you'll go!!

Time to make the fuckin donuts. #gettowork

I will quote the great Mother Teresa.... Werk,werk,werk,werk

Post APFT workout. I know what they say, rest after an APFT....fuck that noise. It was chest day and I'm not gonna lie I was smoked. In order to be successful you have to fail sometimes, the video clip is a good example of that. The weight felt light but my chest wasn't having it. Mixed in to reverse grip push-ups towards the end to trigger different parts of the pecs. #tattooedandemployed #tattedmilitary #tattooedmen #drillsergeant #militarymuscle #1stphorm #legionofboom #iam1stphorm #neversettle #universalchestday #chest #pecs #redcon1 #weareredcon1 #higheststateofreadiness #monday #APFT #savage #savageathletics #summersmash2017

#supplements can be daunting when you first start especially if you're taking a #stack like my @1stphorm Royal 👑 stack but what I like to do is the night before seeeate them up by am pm and afternoon section them out and then you don't have to think about it all day . As long as you have an air tight container you can do this for up to the entire week ! It makes it a little less stressful and more organized ! Just grab and go . You can even do it with your powders as well ! Keep it in a little box for the week if you wish and you'll stay on track just like with your meals #fittip of the day All you need is a bag and a marker! #supplements #prep #1stphorm #results

I can feel your dream

I couldn't even hit this shit 4 weeks ago. Not a pro at it but it shows that practice and consistency makes you better in areas you are weak in !! 💪🏼🔥💯

That post workout pump. 🦍

Even though I got midterms this week. I need to stay focused and on top of my game. Same goes with everything else in life. You always got to strive to be better than the person you were the day before. Never settle. #_cheeze_x #fit_chi #1stphorm #iam1stphorm #csusb #kinesiology #exercisephysiology #midterms

I'll catch myself when I fall or step on the wrong path #ByePuppyPaws

Part 2: These I usually superset to end my arm day. Lifting light or for supersets do 12-15 reps for each (I do opposite or complimentary muscle groups). DM or comment with questions! 👍🏻💪🏻 #1stphorm #iam1stphorm #legionofboom #neversettle
