Scott A

Repost Scott A - The last three months I took on a 'Nutrition challenge' at our gym, over the course of three months I lost approximately 4kgs and went from 18% body fat to 17% body fat. Initially I wasn't very happy but it's important to look back at the old me and see where I've come from and just remind myself it's still heading in the right direction. There's no miracle pill or surgery that would've changed my mind that good eating and consistent exercise is the best way to heal the body and mind. The picture of me on the left is me at approximately. 135kgs in 2012, i arrived in Oz around 125kgs and I now sit at 92kgs.

I'm about to start my 1,3 and 5 yr goals and I'm sure that as 2016 closes you're maybe planning your new year resolution on getting healthier in 2017.

I joined Crossfit Resolve back in February and it's without doubt changed my life. The steadfast coaching and fantastic community has been incredible. I urge you to find your healthy passion in 2017 (be it Dancing, boxing or walking) and wish you all the best.....

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Strategic math WOD . . .

We choose to go . . . not because [it is] easy, but because [it is] hard, because that goal will serve to measure and organise our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.

Renewed application and consistency . . . Enviable progress . . .

 

Performance is directly correlated with intensity. Intensity is directly correlated with discomfort.

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

Push-ups . . .

 

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
