I don’t know how many, if any, of you actually read the captions on these stupid videos that I’m posting, but this one’s going to be a little bit different. For the last couple years, I guess several years, I’ve felt pretty sorry for myself. I’ve let the small road bumps in my life turn into large obstacles and the big problems become mountains that are unsurmountable, and I have let that get me down at all aspects of my life including my fitness and mental health. Couple my personal and professional struggles with my blowing out my knee, for all intents purposes ending my competitive career hopes, and the last couple years have been really terrible. Recently I have decided to try to take back my life both from a physical standpoint and with my emotional well-being.
When I first started getting into fitness and working out in general, I noticed how much being physically fit and happy with my physique changed my mental outlook. I noticed that it did so so much that I chose the fitness field as my future career and is how I wound up where I am today professionally. So I figured the best place to start getting my mental well-being back in line is to get back to where I want to be physically and have slowly but surely been working on that for the last several months. Stretching to fix my back, back training to deserve this damn black belt on my waist, as well as working out off the mats and changing my diet some. Today I weighed 210.2 pounds, which is the least I have walked at in almost 2 decades (outside of cutting for a competition). I don’t wanna lose anymore weight, time to put on some muscle again, but it’s nice to see that I’m making progress. #birdwatching #fatboyskinny #professorhealthybitch #professorstretchybitch #fueledbyhaterstears
