It’s Okay…

… To steal be inspired by a blog idea from Lisa!

…To wearing the same thing twice a week at work because I leave one outfit (that I change weekly) in my gym locker for the days I bike to work. I’m lazy about clothes and not into fashion as much as I was before. I wish I can live in my fitness gear!

… To wear your [clean] workout gear around the office because you feel like it.

…To take vain mirror pics at the gym because you work hard for that body (and because I know I work hard and never slack)! Taking pictures isn’t slacking.

… To have less intense workouts too because if you can handle super intense workouts every single day, it’s either not intense enough or you are not giving your body enough rest.

… To skip oatmeal and breakfast all together. Because I haven’t been eating breakfast regularly for 2+ years and have seen nothing but positive changes to my body, health and energy.

… To indulge in tater tots because it’s so yummy.

Eat half-clean and train mean (minus the dog food)!

… To wanting to tell your friend that you lost his puppy (whom you are babysitting) so you can keep it forever because he is the best puppy in the world. I want to get a mini-goldendoodle but I would be so disappointed if he didn’t have the same personality as Toby!

And best of all? He gets along with bunnies.

… To “race” unsuspecting people on the bike lanes because that will make you a faster and stronger rider.

… To wake up at 5am for a good morning sweat session even though you know you will die and want to kill everything around you when the 3pm slump comes around.

… To occasionally do steady-state cardio (on the bike) because it’s relaxing and therapeutic.

… To realizing that any cardio you do never end up being “steady-state” because interval training is just SO much more fun.

.. To be writing a blog post when you should be writing off your performance and peer reviews. See, I’m done writing this entry already so now it’s back to work okay.

My background is in tech but now I am an expert on productivity-hacking, motivation, accountability, coaching, nutrition, and living a happy yet disciplined and committed lifestyle— and I’ve been doing so “effortlessly” for well over 10 years.

After years of studying and applying this skill we call DISCIPLINE, I’ve learned how important it is to be consistent to inspire others through implementing and cultivating good habits.

This is my journal and honestly I write but I rarely proofread. I don’t have time, and I gave up perfection a long time ago. I have been practicing this art of putting my thoughts on paper (or the web) since my mom gave me my first diary when I learned how to write. Just like my life, this journal is not perfect.
