I have a love hate relationship with squats! I don’t even care if I have a nice booty,I’d rather have legs the size of tree trunks! I hate to do them but love the feeling in my legs after and the next day,it means I’ve done something more than I did the day before! We had a squat challenge at work yesterday where if ANY of used used the bathroom for ANY reason we ALL had to do 10 air squats each!! It was a fun way to get some fitness into a busy schedule and also sorta kinda teambuild,what’s your secret for fitting fitness into a busy schedule?! * * * #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #gym #gymlife #gymrat #fitness #fitnessjourney #health #healthylifestyle #walking #strength #liftingweights #cardio #mealprep #eatyourcolors #eatyourveggies #applecidervinegar #acv #planetfitness #thingoldline #beard #beardedbadass #beabadasseveryday #slaytheday #squats #ihatesquats #ithurtstogetupfromthebathroom

Definitely how I felt today!!! Freaking KILLED IT! I thought about cutting my workout short,then my jam kicked in and I said “NOT TODAY! ISYMFS!! And now I’m grateful I did cause my shirt for dinner is a little bit tighter in the sleeves and shoulders...Now steak for dinner with the wife(gotta get that protein in)! What keeps you guys motivated in the gym? What gets you from saying “NOT TODAY!” * * * #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #gym #gymlife #gymrat #fitness #fitnessjourney #health #healthylifestyle #walking #strength #liftingweights #cardio #mealprep #eatyourcolors #eatyourveggies #applecidervinegar #acv #planetfitness #thingoldline #beard #beardedbadass #beabadasseveryday #slaytheday #isymfs #nottoday #sleevebustersunion #gainsfordays

Sooooo glad today is rest day!!! And I’m taking that literally! It’s the last day of my work cycle (I work shift work so I’m off till Wednesday) so this guy is sleeping in tomorrow!!! Don’t forget that’s sleep is ESSENTIAL to developing a healthy lifestyle,if your body isn’t rested then it’s not performing to its maximum potential...even a Ferrari(like me lol) isn’t on 24/7! Make sure your getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night!! * * * #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #sleep #sleepislife #fitness #health #healthy #mealprep #eatyourcolors #gym #gymlife #gymrat #walking #thingoldline #beard #beardedbadass #beabadasseveryday #yesireferredtomyselfasadamnferrari !
My exact face when I got on the scale today and saw that I’m down almost 11 pounds since Monday!! I can never tell which scale is telling the truth but this is definitely a confidence builder! Determination and dedication are paying off,I know that every week will not be like this and there are hard times and plateaus ahead,but I can keep true my course by remembering why I’m doing this! What are some of the things that keep you going through the hard times? * * * #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #motivation #mealprep #gym #gymlife #gymrat #fitness #health #healthy #eatyourcolors #healthyliving #walking #strength #madea #beard #beardedbadass #beabadasseveryday
“The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.” - Vince Lombardi. * * * Excuses are like butts and they all stink,that’s the bottom line! Things happen in life(like co-workers offering you left over buffalo wings) but it’s up to you how you handle them(politely declined btw),you alone can mold your future! How good of a potter are you? How are you going to overcome your excuses tomorrow? How bad do you want your results? * * * #mealprep #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #fitness #eatyourcolors #health #healthy #veggiesareyummy ! #gym #gymlife #gymrat #strength #overcomeyourself #beard #beardlife #beardedbadass #beabadasseveryday
Smash it!! Take that sledgehammer and beat your day and your old routine in the face! This was me at the gym today,even though it was just a quick cardio sesh I ramped up the incline and hiked it out. Ever having a bad day then the gym is a great way to let out those frustrations,felt like a million bucks after I left the gym today! #gymlife #gymrat #fitness #healthy #smashyourworkout #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #mealprep #eatyourcolors #beardedbadass #beabadasseveryday
Soooo I did a thing today!! I took a leap forward in my journey and joined a gym! My work started a biggest loser type challenge and so for the next 4 weeks when I’m not working,I’m gonna be living here...for a few hours atleast. Today did 40 minutes on the incline treadmill and then hit back! For those that don’t know I work a very sedentary job so I need to develop a stronger back!

After completely neglecting my health and social media post for the last few weeks (cough months cough) I am back. This book has made me realize that I’ve been setting myself up for failure because I’ve fallen complacent and comfortable in the life that I have. I order to change this once and for all,I’m gonna completely out myself out there and finallypost some progress pictures later tonight or tomorrow(work schedule prohibiting). It’s finally time to get accountable,get the right mindset, and get healthy! #fitfam #weightloss #healthy #selfhelp #journey #ttc #infertility #maleinfertility #transformation #fitness #mealprep #walking #gym #badass #goldtoblue
I don't usually post things about my work or mention it but this really pissed me off today! I work as a 911 dispatcher for my local police department, and today I had a lady call who can only be described as a "class act" of a human being. It took everything I had to not tell this lady to fuck off(pardon my language). She wanted to use the police to come and BULLY her neighbor WHO WAS ON HIS OWN PROPERTY to put a shirt on because SHE was offended when SHE looked on HIS property! How bout you stop being such a judgmental piece of shit and leave the man alone! You have no idea what that man is going through or if he's struggling with his weight! I'd bet my paycheck that if her neighbor looked like an A-List celebrity she would have never called and would probably be staring even harder! #pieceofshit #classact #shittyneighbors #stopjudgingpeople #leavepeoplealonealready #police #dispatch #iam911 #thingoldline #forgottenfirstresponder #gositintraffic #keepyoureyesinyiurownyard
Me today!!! I HATE yard work!! Hate may not even be the right word....I'd rather gouge my eyes out with a hot fire poker(ok well maybe not that dramatic lol). But it's way to hot,I'm way out of shape(who knew you could be in "yardwork shape"), and did I mention it's way too hot? But atleast I sweated a metric shit ton so it counts as my workout for the day!
