Checking in guys, it's Saturday, March 25th. 9PM. Week number 4 of prep(12 weeks out). slowly, but surely making changes and seeing progress. This is no joke. The work is put in every single day. The workouts, the cardio, the meals... it's a process that's only going to get harder the further I get in and the closer I get to June 17th. During the days while focusing on the day I have in front of me, I'm already preparing myself, mentally, for the next week. "What you do today matters. What you do a week from now, doesn't matter at this moment, but when the time comes, be prepared for it." Something I've started telling myself recently to help me get ready and stay ready(For every next day and every next week that's coming up).
I notice every day, my energy and mental focus starting to become less and less.(Nothing too drastic, but enough that I'm beginning to notice) I keep telling myself it's all in my head.... because it is. It's your body simply testing your mind to see how disciplined you are. How strong is your will? How strong is the vision of where you see yourself at the end of the next 12 weeks. The battle within my mind will be won by me and only me. No factors can hold me back. When you want something bad enough, you'll get it. When you want something bad enough, you must prove yourself. You must PROVE that you're worthy to earn it. NOTHING worth having comes easy. That's called a wish. I don't wish. I work. The struggle, the grind, the late nights, the early mornings, the cravings, the temptations. IT'S ALL A TEST. I'ma pass that shit with flying colors. You should be exhausted at the end of every day so you can confidently say, you did everything you could to move forward. If you can't say that confidently and honestly, then you need to work harder(Another thing I'm constantly telling myself).
We're still just getting started..
I've got three more months. Three months to bring the best condition to the stage. Three months to tighten up and nail everything. I'm ready for this next week. I'm focused on tomorrow. I'm present today. EVERY DAY YOU MUST MAKE THE BEST OF IT. 24 hours. The 24 hours in front of you matter most so don't you dare go and waste that shit on doing things that won't help you improve.
I want to give a special shoutout to my dudes Austin Elliott and Dylan Wilson. These dudes work their asses off day in and day out which just pushes me to do the same. Train with people who share the same passion as you. Train with people who are so self-motivated that you get EVEN MORE motivated through watching them. That's as real as it gets. Can't make that shit up. So go follow my dudes on instagram(LIKE RIGHT NOW) @austinelliott11 and @dwillx13 show 'em some love and tell 'em I sent you.
Another week of training crushed. Let's get after it every. Striving to become better versions of ourselves, every single damn day. Let's goooooo.. I'll talk to you guys soon. Thank you for reading and keep on striving.
