38: Relying On Others To Go To The Gym

Relying on others to motivate you into going to the gym and why this isn’t the best for you. When on your fitness journey you need to learn to go at it alone. Getting a membership with someone may be nice or even financially beneficial but if the reason you go depends on if someone else does then you are off to a bad start and failure to commit will soon follow. This isn’t to say having a workout partner is a bad thing or to bash those who encourage you. This is to affirm the notion that this is a lifestyle and that going alone should be just apart of your life as anything else you do solo. Thank you guys again for your continued support and enjoy.

28: Training and Broken Sleep

Living the dad life and once again on that broken sleep schedule. In todays episode I take the podcast outdoors with my oldest son as I talk a little about my training and lack of sleep with a newborn in the house. As always thank you guys for listening and providing positive feedback. Maintaining the energy for the gym without cheating my family out of the energy they deserve from me can be hard. With our newborn my wife and I are once again going through those sleepless nights. A few of my workouts have suffered due to this but for the most part as each day passes I find that my body is adapting. I could not imagine nor would i recommend maintaining this type of schedule long term but for the most part it isn’t as tough as I had thought it would be during those first few weeks.
