Today I went for another 3 mile run outside. I am loving the ability to take my cardio program outside. I've also realized that I've put in close to 10 miles in 3 days. I'm having a great time with this.
As I move forward with my nutrition plan I'm finding it easier and easier to eat. I honestly don't care for starchy carbs that much and the way I'm bringing my carbs down is to cut back on starchy carbs (see my Nutrition Log for more details).
I had a few very long meetings today and it gave me some thoughts. I've realized that my goals are not negotiable in my mind and that's a huge change in mindset for me. It is as though I've programmed myself to succeed no matter what. In the past I would tend to adjust the goals here or there, but this time I'm laying it out there and then going for it. No mercy at all. My body will listen to me and not the other way around (so to speak). It will do what I tell it to do and I want it to drop the fat, so drop the fat it will!

Thought for the Day:
Never ever give up on yourself, your goals or your dreams. No matter how many people love you and care about you, only you truly care about your goals and dreams, so if you give up on them, who is going to believe in them?
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
