Chris and Tom offered to help me train to become a police officer.

Yeah, I got similar responses. I guess for simplicity’s sake I just don’t include it while I record my workout. It takes too much brain things.

And yes I am certainly a fitness-inclined snowboarder. I haven’t been able to snowboard much this year since I moved back to the East coast of Canada. I envision many trips out west in my future! Also, you may notice I rarely use this blog. Most times (when I’m a good fitblr) I use eatliftrun.tumblr.com

Hey just a Noob question:
When you guys calculate your weights for your lifts do you include the weight of the barbell?

I’m scared

I made the mistake of previewing the plyometrics cardio circuit from insanity before doing it. Now, all I can think is, I can’t do that!!!

Wish me luck.

kitwolfren said: 80% doesn't surprise me. Not with how much people rely on coffee, energy drinks, 5-hour Energy shots and all that quick fast food. Life is too fast and too busy for much else sometimes. How many people actually sit down to a real family dinner anymore? Or take time to fix healthier food options? A quick item from the store/restaurant/freezer is so much easier. No, 80% doesn't surprise me one bit.

My problem with this whole stupid AE/AF thing is that I do not rely on any of these things for energy (save coffee I’m a morning drinker), I eat regular meals every 3ish hours (started that years ago), NEVER eat precooked meals (always fresh from whole foods) and I’ve done so for the last almost 2 years! The only difference I felt was one of confidence. I still felt/feel rundown all the time. You know that energetic and fresh feeling people talk about when they begin to eat consistently good, wholesome, nutritious food? I’ve never felt that. Especially when I exercise. I just get exhausted by like 7:00pm. I hate it.

It’s morning here and I’m sipping some rooibos tea. It’s not as good as coffee, but hopefully it will help me out.

kitwolfren said: Whoops, didn't realize you weren't following my blog, so I published my answer to your question. It got a bit long winded. But I figured I ought to publish it in case anyone else had those questions too, they might see it then.

Thank you! I just read that 80% of all North Americans will experience this problem in their lives. 80%!!! Crazy. I’ll see how these changes help me out.

Yeah… You’re correct, sir. You’re lookin’ good though! Keep it up.

Thanks to my new followers, but…

This is my snowboarding/I barely use it Blog. Most, if not all of my fitblr posts will be on eatliftrun.tumblr.com

Thanks!

Dream Big. Inspire Others. Live Superhuman.

I have big dreams.

Sometime, in the not too distant future, I hope this blog can help millions of people improve their health and change their lives.

I know it is possible.

I have seen huge changes in myself, my friends, my family, and many more people that have committed to a better life. It is incredibly motivating to see what people are capable of once they commit themselves to making changes.

Not everyone succeeds though.

Sometimes I see people struggle or fail and never make it to their goals. Sometimes it is people who never even get started in the first place. They just make excuses that they don’t have the time, money, or other resource to make positive changes in their life.

The frustration of seeing a few people struggle can sometimes get in the way of the bigger picture.

How can I positively change the lives of millions of people if I can’t even help my best friend, my girlfriend, or my parents?

Sometimes the burden of others feels greater than any pressure we could ever feel to achieve our own goals.

But I have come to learn that it is useless to focus on things outside of my control. It is impossible to convince someone that they need to make changes in their life. It is impossible to hold anyone’s hand in order to get them to succeed.

The only thing you can control is yourself. The only thing that you can control is the positive changes that you make in your own life.

This is what will affect others.

Others are not inspired by facts or arguments. They are inspired by the way you live your life every single day. They are inspired by your passion and they are inspired by your ability to hold yourself to a higher standard.

People can hate all they want, but everyone is inspired by greatness. You may not be able to convince someone to change but you can eventually inspire them to change.

This is what it really means to be successful. To hold yourself to a higher standard regardless of what others around you say or do. To help them raise their standards.

You never know who is watching. You never know who is looking up to you. Some of my biggest inspiration comes from people who I have never met, or people that don’t even know how much I look up to them.

What if they stopped going after their dreams? Where would I be?

Never stop going after what you really want. Never lower your standards. Live your life everyday like someone you care about is watching.

Be an inspiration. Live Superhuman.

This.

Best blog I follow on here. There is a reason air plane safety starts with putting on your own oxygen mask before attempting to help others.

Besides, I would never take away the chance to surprise me from anyone.

Perfect!
