Predator Fitness – Motivational Monday – Accountability Partners

“I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have.. Life itself.” – Walter Anderson Welcome to another glorious Motivational Monday. Most people hate Monday because it’s the start of another week of work, likely at a “Job” they really hate and wish they were out of but they haven’t quite found their jump to something they truly enjoy. For me Monday is just a day I choose to use as a restart of positive influence. I mean I could waste time thinking; “Oh, it’s Monday. I HATE MONDAY’S” in a Garfield like voice but that’s not going to do anything for me except start a negative thought pattern for my week. Instead I like to think; “Oh, It’s Monday! If I didn’t do so great on my training, on a hobby or…


Predator Fitness – Motivational Monday – Quotes – Free Yourself!

Everyday can be a struggle if you look at it in that light. If the first thought on your mind when you wake up is; “Oh, another miserable day in the life of Me”. That is exactly what you’re going to have. Another miserable, pathetic day. More often than not it’s easier to blame everyone and everything else in our lives for our circumstances and not accept responsibility for the things we actually did cause and can ultimately change.   Look at yourself; do you find yourself blaming everyone around you for the things that happen to you? For the things you didn’t get or didn’t work towards because you assumed you wouldn’t get it anyway before you even started? While it is true that we will run into complete assholes in our lives, that may in fact do you wrong; it is still up to us on how we act and respond to it. What they did may have started a negative flow of thoughts and feelings but in the end it is up to you to free yourself from those thoughts and to change your mind to either accept (but not forget) and let what happened go or…


Predator Fitness – Road to Recovery

It’s now 2012! In 2011 I had set out quite a few goals, some that I met, some that I was no where close to completing, like being in shape for the Beachbody Body Challenge. Top it off just after thanksgiving, I get a fever that lead to a (open wound warning) forearm injury  / almost 3 inch gash/scar that now has me unable to lift weights and missing some feeling in my index and thumb fingers. Talk about being beyound frustrated! December was a month of not working out for safey reasons. It is January now and I am dying to jump back into it, now that the swelling in my hand/forearm has decreased greatly since the accident. With the start of the new year and fitness goals that I want to meet, I must pace myself and now I must really come to love doing cardio because until my arm is healed, weight lifting is out of the question. I will no doubt have to rehab my forearm before I can throw it back into 35lb forearm curls or even think about doing a pushup.
