Someone told me a while ago that I needed to blog because everyone now days has one and I was the only one who didn’t. I replied that I had nothing to blog about hence the whole no blog thing for me. I now blog for the pure enjoyment of it and to encourage others to grab life by the horns and push their limits every chance possible. The only limits are the ones you put on yourself.
There have been people along the way that have given me motivation. That wasn’t their intent, but they silently did it by just being themselves. The overweight, quiet guy who turned himself into an Iroman and triathlete. He didn’t do it for me, but jeez, what a motivation. The incredibly tall, loud guy who berated me on a daily basis and shot down every excuse I gave for eating the donut or being too tired to workout. OK, maybe part of me just gave up excuses to shut him up some days, but the end result was the same.
I’m now in the best shape of my life and recently became a competitor in Bikini Class B and Bikini Masters with the National Physique Committee (NPC). I’m not yet where I want to be ultimately, but I’m on the way. If I can motivate others while I’m at it, that would be incredible. Me, a motivator. It will also be just fine with me if I end up one of those silent motivators that helped me. A motivator is a motivator, even if they don’t realize it all the time.
So join me on my quest and one day, when you least expect it, I will blog the announcement that I made it. That I reached my goal at the end of the quest… and then I’ll set another goal.
