From Here To There; Visualizing Your Fitness Goals Like You Are Looking At A Mountain Peak

I could not have said it better myself. Mike is a true inspiration and friend...

You know what you want to achieve physically. You have set your Fitness goals. You have been specific. You have sought out a source of the combination of Fitness Tools (Beachbody Fitness Programs)that will get you there. (Intense workouts, proper nutrition, & effective supplementation)

You feel like you are standing at the base of a HUGE Mountain. You can see the Summit (Achieving your Fitness Goals) from where you are standing. You also can clearly see that there will be a tremendous amount of work involved in achieving those goals. Fitness success does not happen overnight. It takes patience, discipline, consistency, passion, and grit.

Working hard during your daily workout (If you are doing more than one workout per day, try working harder on your 1st workout of the day and you will not need a 2nd. ESPECIALLY if you are doing an extreme Fitness program like P90X or INSANITY), eat clean burning fuel that is workable in daily life and you can enjoy your entire life. Finally, use quality supplements (Like Beachbody's Supplements) to "fill in the gaps" of your Nutrition program. As hard as we try to eat a large variety of foods, we can almost never get all of the quality nutrients from just the food that we consume on a daily basis.

Think about it, you could be 6 weeks (Slimin6), 60 days (INSANITY), or 90 days (Hip Hop Abs, P90, P90X, ChaLEAN Extreme) away from your Fitness goals! That is a drop in the bucket time wise in the larger picture of our lifetime. If you aren't excited by that, you need to get back on the couch and break open that bag of Doritos.... ;-) (Don't do that, you are better than that!) :-)

Each new day is a gift in the fact that we have a chance to move that much closer to the Summit of our own personal Mountain. (Achieving our Fitness goals)

Stop over thinking your nutrition, thinking that variety in your Fitness is something that you HAVE to have or you won't make Fitness Progress (Stick to a Beachbody workout as its laid out in the program guide. When you have achieved or are close to your Fitness goals, then you can start mixing things up)
Sometimes too much variety is a bad thing. (If you are mixing up P90X with INSANITY already, you would be MUCH better off choosing a single Fitness Program and giving it 100% of your effort)

Take each day as it comes, do your best, and ask yourself one question at the end of each day:

"Did I give my best effort and move a little closer to achieving my Fitness goals today?"

Live Strong ~ Live Lean


Thanks for the encouraging words, Mike.

All my very best,
