I Have a Confession

One month ago, I sat in the baby room at our church with Emma when Brent, our pastor, was speaking about fasting as a part of his sermon.

 

He had mentioned Newell Strength a few times since the topic was about forming new habits, being that we had just entered the new year.

 

After the sermon, Devon and I went up to say hi as we always do and I said, ‘Brent, I’d be happy to do something fitness related for the community up here if you’d like.’

 

Bam!  Within minutes I had committed, he was putting the info in the very next sermon that was starting in 20 minutes.

 

They got a selfie picture of me and we were off to the running.

 

The lesson here is that I was stepping out of my comfort zone and I took action on an idea long before I even knew the details.

 

I didn’t know how I was going to do it, when I would fit it in, how I would speak to the people that joined my life group.  But it didn’t matter, the idea struck me and I spoke up.

 

In life, you cannot wait for all the lights to be green.  Just begin.

Here’s a Terrible Diet I Wrote

10 years ago, I wrote the diet for current Newell Strength client, Tammy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She sent it to me a few weeks ago after we were reminiscing about the original days of Newell Strength.

 

I always get a kick out of some of my early writings, programs and diets because I look back at them and cringe.

 

It’s not that I didn’t know anything, its that I didn’t know any better.

 

A lot of today’s fake fitness experts might look at this and think it’s actually pretty good.

 

Remember this, you reserve the right to change your mind….

 

If you are constantly learning and growing.

Members of the Month: Steve and Susan Shortino

A better part of a year ago, Steve and Susan decided to try us out at Newell Strength.  There is nothing better than to see a married couple begin their fitness journey together, especially when it is based in support and spending time together.

 

Well, Susan and Steve are just that couple.  And they make it in religiously together, multiple times each week.

 

You can hear about their journey together right here: https://youtu.be/NUFD-5S6IAg

Dude, Are You Okay’?

About 6 weeks ago, I was working at Newell Strength Flemington when I started getting the chills.

 

It turned out that it was the start of the flu.  And boy, did that kick my butt.

 

Anywho, I didn’t work out for roughly four weeks because of it. When I don’t work out, I tend to ‘shrink’ pretty quickly.

 

Combine that with my fasting protocol and weight melts off of me.  To put it in perspective, I weighed myself out of curiosity for the first time in 3 months the other morning and I weighed less that I did at my last bodybuilding show!

 

Getting sick like that and not working out for a while means that I am nowhere near where I used to be in terms of physical strength, but that’s okay.

 

My one friend was recently comparing me to some other friend’s commenting on who was the strongest etc.  Then he says, ‘But, you always have the best mindset, no one can touch you with that’.

 

Hey, I’ll take it.  I’ll take a bit less physical strength and more mindset mastery any  day of the week!

 

As you progress in life from ‘warrior’ to ‘teacher’, some of your old physical ‘stuff’ will fall away….

FREE Advice if You Want It

10 days ago, I sat in my buddy’s basement with some of my closest friends, watching the college football national championship.

 

It is a yearly tradition for us but the game always runs well past midnight.

We were discussing how late it was and what were doing the next morning when they asked me what time I was going to get up.

 

To which I replied, 5.

 

My buddy said, ‘But  you always talk about how important sleep is.  On a night like this, why not just sleep a little extra?’

 

And to be fair, he had a valid point.  But sometimes we need to know where we are at in life.  Right now, my focus is on staying strong on my ‘Mind Map Morning routine’.  I began right before Christmas but then got wiped out by the flu for 3 weeks.

 

We are not always going to have balance in life.  Overall, I’ve been doing pretty good with my sleep quantity so I knew a night or two of less sleep wouldn’t hurt in the long run.

 

Put your attention on the keystone habit in your life, the one that has the biggest ROI and don’t let your sights off of it.

Bill began training with us a few years back in one of our Ripped Dad’s contests.  At the time, he was struggling life.

 

I distinctly remember having a few Mind Map sessions about life and about finding his path.

 

So needless to say, it’s been quite inspirational to see how he has totally transformed his life!

The Power of Your Morning Routine

15 years ago, as a struggling student teacher and aspiring bodybuilder, I remember getting up every day at 4 or 430 to begin my morning routine.

 

Yes, at the time, I lived at home with my parents and my mom would often get up to find me studying or drinking coffee, listening to music that made me feel good.

 

My morning routine has always been the cornerstone of my life.  When my morning routine is on point, my life is better.  Point. Blank. Period.

 

Don’t overlook your morning routine!  In today’s episode, I discuss the power of your morning routine and how to develop a solid system to rule your life.  You can take a listen here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2020/01/20/The-Power-of-Your-Morning-Routine

Monday Morning Mindset: Your Pain

In the spring of 2007, I walked into my grandmother’s nursing home and told her goodbye.

 

No, it wasn’t her time to pass, but I was embarking on my 4 month journey to get ready for that spring’s bodybuilding competitions and I was adamant that I would not let any negative forces into my world.

 

So, that meant that for that period of time, I would not have contact with her.  I know it sounds terrible now, but you see, my grandmother (a great lady), could be a complainer at times.

 

In fact, in addition to her, I also cut off one of my best friends for that period of time because he too, would infuse negative words into my head.

 

In life, you need to know when it’s time to stop verbalizing your pain.  Your words and thoughts are like a radio frequency that will attract back exactly the messages you are sending out.

 

Allow a small period of time to vent your frustrations and then drop them, they  aren’t serving you.

 

Do  you want to be the victor or the victim in life?

Why It Didn’t Work For You

One year ago, you were 365 days removed from now.

 

But how much has actually changed for you?

 

Did you actually achieve what you wanted to achieve.

 

It’s okay if you didn’t, it happens to us all some of the time.

 

And when it comes to fitness, if last year’s plan didn’t work for you, it’s because:

-Lack of Coaching

-Lack of consistency

-Too much will-power was involved

-The wrong coaching (with a little ‘c’)

 

And that’s okay, because they are all within your control to some degree.

 

If this is the year that things are going to be different for you, then come try us out for a 30-day trial, it’s literally risk free and we cover all the bases from the mistakes listed above.

 

Something to think about…

Yes, Sometimes I’m and Idiot

I am just like you in that not everyone likes me. Yes, that’s the sad truth of the matter.

 

It’s the way life is.

 

Some would even say I am an idiot, but that’s okay, because what other people think of me is none of my business.

 

Yet, I’d say I am an idiot some of the times for a very specific reason….

 

When I try to do more than one thing at a time.  Usually this is work/creation related, but nonetheless, when we try to focus on more than one thing, we burn tremendous energy and rarely get anything done.

Multi-tasking is a MYTH.

 

So, the question you have to ask yourself is; what’s the one thing that you need to wrap up, focus on and complete next?

 

And then stay on that thing until it’s done.
