The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

Warp Speed Day 1

Well it is too early in the day to comment on the diet but the workout is killer! I was lots of fun! I didn't even mind the lunges. I don't know if that means I am finally strong enough to do lunges or if the reverse lunges are just easier??

I will admit to substituting the chin-up/lat pulldown for pullovers. Until I come up with something better I will have to do that. I can't do chin-ups no matter how much assistance is provided; I simply weigh too much. And since I workout at home, I have no access to a lat pulldown. I will come up with something but for today I subbed pullovers.

I am trying really hard to plan everything ahead of time. I even went as far as writing out what things I need to do each day. I always make fairly detailed menus but I have a bad habit of looking at the clock at 6:30 and have nothing pulled out of the freezer for dinner. So, I end up throwing together some meatless pasta dish instead! So I made a list for each day of things that need to be prepared for the next day or pulled out of the freezer.

Yesterday I hard boiled a bunch of eggs and precooked chicken breasts. Of course, I did this before realizing that all of the weights for the meat are the precooked weight. So now I am trying to find out what percentage is lost when you cook chicken!
