My Friday to do list:
Eat a loaf of bread. Drink a Litre o’ Cola (or a Large Farva – anyone?). Heavy whipping cream in my coffee. A big ol’ pizza…extra cheese.
Saturday’s to do list: Crush WLC and have a blast with one of the biggest Community Events we’ve ever had at High Voltage.
-And now, a little from Coach Tyler for Saturday…and Beyond!
~It’s no secret. I am an extremist. Throughout my life, this has been my strength and my weakness. The theme of my personal progression as of late has been learning moderation. On top of that I ALWAYS respond to a challenge. So how is all this relevant to the Whole Life Challenge? Well, the 8 weeks of this challenge will be my launch into maintaining balance!
Here’s what is so great about the challenge; if it weren’t for it’s guidelines what would the first 8 weeks of my return to training look like? Well, given what I already know about myself, it would more than likely be too aggressive, and I would for sure be thinking about one thing and one thing only – lifting more weight.
It is my belief that abstaining from whey protein for 8 weeks is NOT what will truly impact my life during and after this challenge. The real effects of these 8 weeks will be felt and generated in areas in between the guidelines of the challenge. When I start training again I will be fortunate enough to be doing it at the same time that I am doing a challenge that is going to encourage me out of my normal behavior. It’s not going to be easy to force myself to take that active rest day or sit on a foam roller instead of throwing some weight around. However, I’m excited to learn more about myself and my athletic personality through trying to live a life that I otherwise may not have been willing to try.
See you all Saturday!
