Br0din finds Freedom through Discipline, part Aon


Br0din

I've been doing a lot of Podcast listening to a Former Navy SEAL turned motivation speaker and he has 2 big points that I love.  Discipline = Freedom and extreme ownership of everything you do.  I haven't been meeting my goals mainly causing I'm not doing these things.  

 
So, this year I'm going to be more goal oriented and harder on myself when I don't make good decisions.  I'm also going to get back to basics, evaluate my priorities, and reestablish my discipline.  There are lots of things I want to accomplish, but haven't because, honestly, I just didn't do the things necessary to accomplish them, like I'm now fatter than I was the start of last year.

1.  Get lean as fuck

or lose 20 lbs.  I was in between 225-228 for most of last year, but my belly measurement went up from 35.8-36.2" to 38".  This isn't good.

a. Count all my calories.  Don't eat over 2400 cals/day.  Basically, have some goddamn discipline.

b. don't eat foods high in fat.  I'm going to try do high carbs / low fat for this challenge.  next month, I'll try high fats low carbs in an experiment of how my body reacts as all my clothes are tight on me now...

c. Track my body stats.  I'm great at capturing my weight, but I'm now going to be discipline about tracking my waist and hip measurements.

and it's too hot here to go another summer of wearing a shirt during workouts.

 

2.  Give praise in the Iron sanctuary.  To do this, I must remain mobile and healthy. So...  have some fucking discipline and do my mobility.  Don't be afraid to see my chrio, and lastly... if I need them, take my NSAIDs.  I know they make me bloated... but it will pass.  Use them to heal faster.

 

3.  Compete in things.  Get off my ass and enter some contests.  I will enter at least 1 PL meet, 1 Crossfit comp (open isn't going to count, and I'm not entering) and 1 WL meet.

I'll do the worse at the WL meeting, but I need to just get off my ass and throw some numbers up.

So...get some discipline already and accept that sometimes you just have to do hard things.

Consider the following inspirational examples of discipline...

In all seriousness, my personal mantra is

I am a Servant of the Most High God.

I bring Hope to the Hopeless.

I bring Love to the Forsaken.

I speak the Truth to Lies.

And I shine LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS.

If everyone plays the heel, then no one is the heel.  Someone needs to be the good guy for balance.

And the compulsive urge to roll up attributes and assign skill proficiencies is officially triggered. That's a Vengeance Paladin if I ever saw one...
