Here's what's horrifying - What if you can't give 100%?
Maybe you just need to go back to the beginning
And start all over again
-Meredith Grey, Grey's Anatomy

I am NOT a helpless victim!

"An Amazon takes life as a constant challenge, not merely to accomplish our goals, but to excel, to better ourselves, to do whatever we set ourselves to - faster, more cleanly, more effectively than ever before" - Wonder Woman

*Motivation is taking responsibility for conscious actions.

*Muscle is more dense, so *the same volume* of muscle will, yes, weigh more than fat, but a pound of muscle is the same weight as a pound of fat. Muscle just takes up less space because it's dense.

*To increase your overall productivity, to start your day by working on the difficult tasks that will make a real difference to your progress. Resist the temptation to "Just do the easy things first " because often this means that you keep putting off the high impact tasks that will really make a difference to achieving your goals. Another advantage of is that when you are feeling less productive at the end of the day, you are often still able to complete the easy tasks on your To Do list.

*When you do something different than what you think you should do, understand that this was also your choice. Simply accept the decision you made as a valid decision made by you. It doesn�t matter whether it was right or wrong.

*Motivation is not something you find or lose, have or don't have. It is the product of how you see yourself in the world: active or passive, effective or ineffective, powerful or victimized, normal or pathological. If you want to be able to motivate yourself, you need to begin seeing yourself as active, effective, powerful, and normal.

    Yes, mostly SP messages. Just don't have the time or energy to deal with them after these last few days with the new agents.

    We both grew up on the farm but it seems in the last few years, he is always dropping his shoulders and bending forward while he walks.

    Yep. Just partition carbs to peri-workout, leaving a less-than-30g-carb window of 12-18 hours/day (a la Intermittent Fasting). You still get your carbs but you're using them as a tool: to fuel a workout and to activate insulin. If you activate insulin when your muscles aren't depleted, the cals will go primarily to subcutaneous fat storage. However, if you're around a workout, you've depleted your muscles and any carbs taken then will activate insulin and be shuffled primarily to the muscle cells. You're still getting the same carbs, you're just using them wisely. No sense in just shove them all to fat right away. Put them directly to muscle.
