Enjoy the journey!


I had a good day and taught RPM this morning at Toowong. I had a wonderful surprise this morning - Alicia came to my class - and she is looking so lean and "killer" (pardon the picture) that I almost didn't recognize her! She has made some amazing changes to her body and it was so much fun catching up with her. It just meant I really got to focus more on caning the old legs as I taught class! I have still got killer DOMS from all of those weights I have been hoiking about this week.
Tonight I heard an absolutely fantastic talk about what it was to be really free. Basically the guts of the message was that to achieve true freedom you need to be firm with yourself about what it is you're actually doing, as opposed to mollycoddling yourself and "waiting for it to happen". Who said "time waits for no man?" Thomas Moore? I can't remember. Anyway, I think the statement is so true. If you set yourself a goal, move towards it with full intention with the aim of truly living it along the way. This is another goal of my preparation - to fully live in every training session and every meal and to move with mindfulness and with purpose - to live my own personal truth.
Wow, that was deep...but hey, that's what comp prep does to you - illuminates other things in life which are just as important!

Hey, so I am wondering, are you using any supplements as well to achieve and keep your body the way it looks?

Yes! I couldn't agree more. That must have been a great lecture!

It reminds me of the Paul Chek lecture I attended at Filex. He said the one thing you need to know is ..what makes you happy... he said that you would be surprised how many people CANNOT answer that. Once you can answer this, then pull out all stops to achieve that! Sounds like a great plan to me :-)
