I hope your weekend was as wonderful as mine. Mine was spent in the company of a marvelous woman, some great friends, and my family! Slept in (and napped!) on Sunday. There was also chocolate-covered-bacon! Seriously. Think about it... Chocolate. Covered. Bacon.
Here's how you make the best cheat-meal ever:
1. fry bacon
2. at low heat, melt a bar of quality chocolate
3. pour melted chocolate over bacon
4. sprinkle crushed walnuts, almonds, etc. (optional)
5. let cool
Oh yes. It was as good as it sounds.
I also want to direct your attention towards another great post by Blair Morrison: Fitness Is...
Take advantage of yours.
A farmer doesn’t plant crops without a harvest. An investor doesn’t invest without a return. But such is the tragic circumstance of a man who trains day after day without using what he’s gained.
With the surplus of material floating around the Internet, shelved in libraries, and taught in schools, it’s easy to lose ourselves amongst the methodology. Nutrition, programming, recovery, adaptation—there’s so much to know that the ‘process’ of fitness becomes a trap well laid. All this information fights for our attention and, as a result, we lose the forest while sifting through the trees.
That forest, while superficially unique from person to person, typically boils down to a better quality of life. Could be that we hate having to ask for help getting in and out of the car or that we feel self-conscious about the forty pounds we’ve gained since high school. Maybe we’re tired of being told we’re too small, too clumsy, and too slow to be an athlete or we simply want to get control of our asthma. Regardless of the particulars, we are all driven by a desire to transpose weakness. Pursuing fitness is the means to do so."
Take the time and read his entire post. Then shut off your computer and go live!
This morning I assistant-coached the early indoor classes with Big Mike. Then I did some strength training.
Feeling good! A 225lbs back squat isn't far off!
It's a new week, make yours a great one. Peace.
