In December of 1999 I was 23 and out processing from the Military.🇺🇸 I was told I had the back of a 62 year old and one day would require surgery.
Believing this I gave myself excuses of why I can’t exercise.
I became lazy. Overweight and Soft.😞 Until one day I Snapped‼️ I decided enough was enough… I started studying Kinesiology. Sports Science and Nutrition.🏋📚📝🍎 I worked with a Physical Therapist to help rehab my lower back.
I 🚫STOPPED the Excuses and didn’t focus on what I couldn’t do but instead put full attention on what I could… Over the years as my body adapted and became Stronger I was able to do more.
Along with having the ability to do more I continued to push myself out of my comfort zone…☠️☠️☠️ I have had the back injury resurface from time to time and through that have learned how to push just enough to keep getting stronger while safely adding more weight and intensity to my workouts.
If you had told me in 1999 that today I would Deadlift over 500 pounds or Squat over 400 I would have laughed at you 🤣🤣🤣 But I am who you see today because of a DECISION I made back then.
Every day we are faced with decisions.
My Challenge to you is to ask yourself each day when you look in the mirror…🤔 Am I making decisions today that will better myself for the future or make me worse off than yesterday.
Only YOU have the power to Change for the better.💯 Just Decide to Move Forward to become the Best Version of yourself. ⚠️Don’t worry about the past failures or mistakes. ⚠️Don’t worry about the long road and what its going to take to get there.
Just Decide and start one step at a time… And each day… Every day… Take another step forward.
The Decision is yours… Now… What Are You Going To Do⁉️
