It’s a very exciting time as today we have just under 10,000 challengers across North America ready to get fit as we kick off our 6-week Spring Challenge!
Lots of tough work outs, clean nutrition and plenty of hydration are in our future, so cannot WAIT to see the results which I believe we will hit over 100,0000 lbs. of combined weight loss!
And while the challenge is on the brain, Facebook served me this “memory” from 2020 about a week ago which is attached.
It’s very bittersweet picture, as we had just closed down due to COVID and pivoted to online sessions. And this specific snapshot was taken just after a virtual work out in Tatiana and my humble 1 car garage.
And while last year was a mess for the world, it did inspire some creativity.
In fact, Tatiana was the mastermind behind the daily zoom virtual sessions we pivoted to within 24 hours of the lock down.
Coming from a 3rd world country of Brazil, in the absence of resources, she learned to become very resourceful.
And while seemingly overnight we lost the ability to run in person session which would have been a very legitimate excuse if we closed business, the reality is we could still train our clients which we did from home!
And that is today’s message, “which is to do what you can, with what you have.”
- You cannot run? Great, walk.
- You cannot do a pushup? Great, hold a plank from your knees.
- You cannot do burpees? Ok, do full body extensions.
- You cannot make it the entire 30 minutes? Ok, do 20 minutes and slow it down for the last 10 minutes.
- You don’t have time? Lie. You haven’t made it a priority.
As the hard truth as it’s NEVER the perfect time to get healthy and fit.
It’s NEVER the perfect time to change your nutrition.
You will NEVER have all the resources you need. There will ALWAYS be some major obstacle in your way. And you will ALWAYS have a legitimate excuse if you accept it in which others will completely understand.
However, excuses will also NEVER get you the results you deserve that will better your life.
So today’s message is in the absence of resources, get resourceful. And for the love of goodness, stop making excuses as the situation will NEVER be perfect, so do what you can with what you have!!!
Make it a GREAT week!
