Everyone embarking on a physique transformation hits a turning point at some point in time. I believe that for me the turning point in my transformation so far has been my planning for this current mission. I have decided to take things to a higher level and I am making it happen daily. Because of those decisions made during the planning of this mission I can already see some additional physique changes just 11 days into the second mission.
I've always been skeptical of the ability of any one human being to change their body in such a short period of time, but I can't be skeptical anymore. It is amazing how hard work during your workouts, finding the sweet spot in your nutrition and just plain grit can change your body in such a tremendous way. That's another turning point for me.
I believe that when I've achieved the body I want, I will look back and be able to see each turning point very clearly. They will be major milestones in my path towards success. It took me a long time to get out of shape, so it is going to take a while to get back into shape. In the end, I'm not looking for overnight success, I am looking for lasting success. I am building a lifelong foundation that will carry me through to the end of my life.

Word for the Day:
The word for the day is intensity. Intensity is something that pushes me through to the next day. It is something that I live for when I'm at the gym. Intensity is the fuel that drives my transformation. Without it, I'm done.
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
