Year of Push 2.29 Nothing Holdin’ Me Back

by | May 11, 2017 | Blog

I’m listening to the song “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” by Shawn Mendes as I write today’s recap.  I think it might be a new favorite song.

It’s really true.

The only thing that ever held me back from getting out of debt was my own frivolous spending and lack of tenacity and organization.

The only thing that ever held me back from starting a business and making it work was my own fear & inaction.

The only thing that ever held me back from weight loss & health was my own attitude and short-sighted decision making.

If I refuse to stand in my own way (and I do), there’s nothing holding me back!

With the right attitude, there’s a way to create everything I want. There’s nothing holding me back!

(Know what’s crazy? Right after writing that I was checking Instagram & saw this pic below)

I jammed out to “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” on the way to the gym this morning and had a killer workout. (Side note: starting your day by blasting a favorite song is never a bad idea!)

I did some individual skill work before the workout and make killer progress so I was pumped up and ready to go for what was one of my favorite workouts to-date.

“Strongman Style”
Teams of 4-5:
5:00 at each station:
Prowler Push
Sled Pull
Ski Erg
Tire Flip
Yoke Carry

I absolutely LOVED this workout and I really brought my A+ game.

Workouts are such a clear picture into your attitude.

You can go into or through a workout thinking “This sucks. I can’t. Is it over yet? OMG it hurts” or you can thinking “I’ve got this. I’m strong. This makes me stronger. I’m so grateful for my body. I’m getting fitter with each ounce of effort.”

If you change your attitude you can change your life. I’m 100% certain of that.

The people with the best attitudes win.

On the food front:

I’m out of the house all day today and I have a webinar tonight so it’s going to be a long day. For that reason, I ate breakfast around 6am this morning (which is rare for me).

I had a big plate of mixed non-starchy veggies and some steak from Paleo Power Meals.

I carried another Paleo Power Meals dish with me & ate it before a meeting – spaghetti squash with meat sauce – totally an easy & delicious one you can make on your own.

I stopped off to get a bottle of water & grabbed a Primal Kitchen Coconut Cashew Bar to snack on during my hair appointment.

Before my webinar I had a large bowl of cauliflower rice (cooked with butter) and some grilled chicken strips.

Certainly a simple nutrition day, but all meals I love that love me back. It feels amazing to feel amazing!
