Operation Get Swole has started but with a whimper. Unfortunately, life has gotten in the way, but that is now under control. I have not had the booming start I wanted even though I launched the mission with a brutal leg workout. I am now back to a major focused effort.

There is a lesson to be learned from my situation. Just because a mission or a goal doesn't go as planned does not mean you should throw in the towel. Too many people do that. They get started on a program and they don't do it exactly as they planned, so they give up. That's the surest way to failure–giving up. In my case, 8 weeks was a push and 7.5 weeks will be even more of a push, but it is a push I am willing to take. You need to have that same attitude. Learning from the mistakes of others costs us very little because it enables us to avoid making mistakes others have made.
Never give up and never surrender–that's my motto. Live it and you will start to achieve things you never thought were possible.
