Cutting progress; Tough love for excuse makers.

Cool, I’m down another quarter of an inch from my waist! I also noticed that my abs are really starting to pop out when I checked my physique in the mirror right after my weigh-in. That brought a smile to my face!

I’m very happy at how well my cut is going this year. It hasn’t been easy to stay dedicated, but I’m doing it. This month I’ve dealt with several “bad” food temptations, a horrible sore throat (which I’m still getting over), a fractured thumb, unscheduled meetings, problems at work, general stress and a number of physically draining early Spring obligations in the yard and in the home. Number of missed meals? Zero. Number of missed workouts? Zero. You know why I haven’t missed a meal or a workout? Because I know what it takes to reach my goal, and I want it badly enough to do what needs to be done.

Summer is coming, and it’s time for a little “tough love” from your old pal JDS.

Do you know people who say they want to make progress, but then they never seem to go anywhere (and they always have an excuse explaining why that is)? Are you one of those people? I draw a lot of inspiration from people who have incredible hardships, yet they don’t allow those hardships to stand in the way of their goals. How I am I going to justify missing a workout because I’m tired or have a headache when there are men and women out there missing a leg (or two) and running marathons?

Simply put, excuses are for people who lack the courage and discipline to reach their goals. If you are always finding ways to justify your failures, then maybe it’s time for you to step back out of your own B.S. and get some perspective.
