The person who is not hungry says that the coconut has a hard shell.

If you want it bad enough, you will  make it happen.  It may take some doing, but you’ll eventually find a way around any obstacle.

Take a look at the trunk of my car.  This is what it looks like at 5:30 AM on every workday morning that’ll find me, first, at the gym (or track, or whatever) prior to punching in for the day.

What you can’t see are the stylish, metrosexual threads, hanging in the back seat 

It ain’t the best of situations, but I make do as best I can.  Hey, there are plenty of people around who’d love to have my whiney-ass time-issue problems, right?  You’ll notice the ubiquitous, Lil’ Oscar cooler there in the trunk.  That’s the badge of a 21st century caveman.  

So all-in-all, this was a usual Tuesday morning.  Feet solid on the deck at about a quarter ‘til 5.  Out the door, coffee in hand, at 5:30.

And, once the circus finally hit the gym in Rocky Mount, this is what came down:

  • Deadlift + Straight Leg Deadlift (on the negative) combo, (just like I did here) x 2 reps.
  • Single-Arm Dumbbell Floor Press x 5reps, each arm
  • Single-Arm Row x 4 reps, each arm

I Jumped from one exercise to the next, in the order you see above, with very little rest in between.  Three rounds, at weight.

This was a fabulous kick-start to a full day of my being an all-out, pharmaceutical validation ninja.

So, what are you waiting for?  Just get in the game.  Really, the initial psychological adjustment to the Paleo/EF lifestyle is the difficult part.  Once the habit is set, the whole thing is a breeze.   What’s left, then, is simply the day-to-day, real life juggles.  That’s where I can help.  Stay tuned, and we’ll get you on your way — and keep you on course once you’ve set sail.

 

In Health,

Keith
