it is now exactly 12 weeks or 84 days until Mission Grand Prix will be complete. I will be standing up on stage nailing every single mandatory pose. I will be less than 8% body fat. I will weigh somewhere in the area of 210 lbs. People will be amazed that a 47 year old man could get into this kind of shape in just 7 months time. As for me, i will be feeling invincible.
I am taking the time to document this transformation that is in progress because it is huge. I am showing what can be done when one takes the time to focus on the end goal. The thing is that it sounds easy, but it honestly is not. You have to want it. You have to seriously want it. The desire has to outweigh the pain and discomfort you go through, the sacrifices you make and the intensity you experience. Without the desire there is no success.
This is why people have such a hard time breaking addictions. They lack the desire. It is no different with a physique transformation. If you want it, it is yours for the taking. I finally made that decision 7 months ago and it has paid off big time. I am in the best shape I’ve been in since I was 25 years old. I am strong as an ox and conditioned as well.
I have decided not to show any of my pictures until after the show because I want there to be some shock value at that point in time. Just know that I am making tremendous progress.
I got a comment on an earlier post that was in response to a question I posed. I asked “What is the ONE thing holding you back from getting into the best shape of your life?” The commenter responded by saying that I am only trying to collect your bad experiences and not focusing on the positive. I answered in the comments section to that article, but now I want to comment on it here at length because: (a) I want to set the record straight; and (b) I don’t want you thinking that negative thoughts are always bad.
One of the first things you have to do in order to achieve a physique transformation is to realize the negative aspects of your current situation. They have to get to the point that you can stand them no longer and demand that they be changed. You must have a strong enough desire to eliminate the negative things that you will actually follow through and do it. That’s what my question was aimed at. It was aimed at getting you to think about your situation. It was geared towards making you realize that there are changes necessary. It was meant to get you to realize that you CAN change. This is why you need some negative thoughts to set you in motion. If you love how you look in the mirror are you really going to make the sacrifices, commit to the hard work, and remain consistent with the program that is needed to get you to a transformed physique? I don’t think you will.
My questions are aimed at promoting conversation on this blog. I would like to see more interaction with the readers. I know people read this blog because I see the numbers. I just want to understand why we get so few comments. Don’t be shy. Step up to the plate and let the world know you are here!
