Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Who's body is, every day, feeling so much better as a result of his good choices?

Today, I finished a meeting and went for a quick walk downtown.

One of the quickest walks I've done in a long time actually:

I walked 1/2 a mile (including a hill) in just under 10 minutes.

Not much for most, but for my 550 lb self, that's the first time I've walked that fast in probably 2 years I'd guess. So, I will take it.

Big time.

Also, tonight I did 60 wall push-ups.

AND I feel great mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

I feel like I am being refined.

And improved.

And I am.

Oh man, I can't even wait.

I am in the process of something momentous here.

This is only the beginning.

So, remember: tomorrow is mine, like it is yours, to do for ourselves whatever we mold and sculpt our actions, decisions, and very beings into whatever we wish them to be.

For me, I am going to keep tearing it up in all that I do.

It's entirely up to you.


  1. I'm excited for you!
    well I got excited just reading the title of the post but whatever ... :D

  2. I am going to keep tearing it up too! I can relate to feeling like you are being refined. My body hasn't felt this strong in 5 years! I am so happy for you.

  3. Wow! That is better than me! I can do a half a mile in 15 minutes. Someday we will be able to do that 4 minute mile that everyone talks about!

    Keep going, you are carving out a better tomorrow! We both are!

  4. i really, really, REALLY hope you have a tee shirt with the 'This Guy' graphic on it. besides that, yay. instead of stopping my exercise dvd at 35 minutes today, i decided i'm worth the extra 7 minutes. and guess what? it was no big deal.

  5. it is up to all things huh?

    I love the concept of INACTION BEING A CHOICE

    (except when thats what Im choosing)

  6. Congrats to "This Guy" who is making the right choices and starting something. Keep up the good work.

  7. so nice to hear the positive tone in your writing this week! Your doing awesome and I'm so excited for you to see all the changes ahead!

  8. That's awesome dude. It feels so good to be in the zone. I hope you stay there for a good long while. And maybe I will join you for a bit myself.

  9. Way to go on that 1/2 mile and on feeling great. It really is about boosting ourselves up and feeling good about who we are. It's definitely all in our hands too.

  10. What a fantastic post. You are improved and improving... what a grand adventure you are on...

  11. You rock, you know that?? Keep it up!

  12. Great to see my friend. I'm getting back on track.

    Way to go.

  13. Thanks so much for your comment on my blog! =) It was very motivational, as is this entry. Keep up the great work, I look forward to reading your entries!!!

  14. who has two thumbs and is totally inspirational?? THIS GUY.. (except they're pointing at you, which means pointing with thumbs is awkward, and i'm a girl.soooooo..)

    great blog!!

  15. Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Your enthusiasm is contagious.

    My son loves that song (Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger). We've been listening to it a lot lately. It's a great way to feel.

    I love all the possibilities that come with being healthy. I am so excited about getting better.

    Have a great weekend!

  16. Love your statement:

    "So, remember: tomorrow is mine, like it is yours, to do for ourselves whatever we mold and sculpt our actions, decisions, and very beings into whatever we wish them to be."

    You're such an inspiration... always positive, always the motivator!! Thank you for your words of action.
