Always be climbing... .
.
my wife @creativefashionblogger and I talk often about how sometimes he grind part of life, even when you’re doing the parts you typically enjoy, is not always fun.
.
.
We find ourselves going through the motions as it were.  It’s in these moments where we need to get back to our roots, back to our why and keep pushing forward. .
.
It won’t always be fun. It won’t always be exciting.  But the end result should always be rewarding.  Whatever your grind.  Stick it out.  That wIll be the difference.

Hey Dads and other fitness and self improvement enthusiasts!  I am starting a fitness themed @fortnite stream on @twitch. (Link in bio)
.
.
Follow along as I try to push up, sit up, and fitness my way through Fortnite gameplay.  This will be a simple way to stay in shape WHILE gaming the worlds most popular game!
.
.
I’ll also be including other dad tips using my own experiences on fashion, courting your significant other, and preparing your kids for success.
.
.
Personally I love video games, and I love fitness, and I love spending time with my family, so I thought why not do all 3?? Did I mention watching the stream is free?  Clicking the follow button is also free? .
.
If you have any ideas on how I can include fitness in my streams, don’t hesitate to throw them here or in the stream chat!  The twitch channel is in my bio.
.
.
Thank you!!!

You’re not always going to be in the mood.

Lace em up, do it anyway.

God I love it when I start to feel stronger.  Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m just trying to catch up...this week I’ve flipped back over to working out to get stronger, to change my body.
.
.
Sometimes the routine will save you, stick to what you know when you’re not feeling the motivation.  Keep grinding and your successes will reignite you.  Also listening to @thesharkdaymond #riseandgrind will help you too!

Thursday Threads!! Been a while since I posted one of these kinds of photos, but I am a big believer in starting your day feeling as empowered as possible. One of the easiest ways to do this is to dress up. It will make you feel better, it will make the mother of your children want you more, and the people at your job to respect you more.
.
.
All that love will then make you that much more productive, and motivated.
.
.
Remember, dressing up is not that hard to do, the most important thing to remember is to just try. The effort alone will show.

Took the top off Shibby yesterday, and found myself instantly more present on the road.  More connected to the world outside of my Jeep.
.
.
It’s so easy to get comfy when you have the illusion of a barrier between you and the outside world (see: internet).
.
.
I love this feeling.  It reminds of my old motorcycle.  You can’t do anything else but ride and be present.
.
.
I have been so distracted lately, feeling like I have 17 irons in four interchangeable fires PLUS 4 kids.
.
.
I know I’ve got this, now I just need to make sure and always be where I am.  Be present.
.
.
***DISCLAIMER*** I held up the phone and held down the camera button.  Never even glanced at the photos until I got home.

Doc cleared me to do real lifting again!
.
.
You know what, I feel pretty good about my starting off point.
.
.
I’m going to add 12 inches to my verticals this year, because, why not?

That’s more like it.  Equally shocked guy in the background as when I was curling those 10 pounders 😂😂
.
.
So excited to start moving real weight around, still can’t do anything above my head but I can get after it all the other ways!
.
.
Bring Monday on, here we go!

It's fine. .
.
Shin splints can be 1 of 3 things. .
.
A stress fracture,  or fractures .
Muscle tissue stretching away from the bone
.
A tendon overload
.
.
So now it's just the top AND bottom half of my body not cooperating. .
.
It's fine.  I'm fine. .
.
Psh, "f" that I'm amazing!  I ran too much and played too hard.  I'll do it again too!  I just need to be creative, and I've got this!
.
.
Bring it on Monday! .

Monday's are a launch pad of work related emotions.  There are entire sitcom episodes based on the frustrating elements of a couple days of leisure coming to an end. .
.
I'm going to fire Monday's,  or rather the cloud that hangs over them.  I desire to have every day follow the same principles.  Produce, and Play. Not necessarily in that order. .
.
Today's challenges are predominantly physical.  I have redeveloped shin splints, still have that pesky new metal bone still healing, a bicep that feels torn and so on... the name of the day didn't impact these things, so I'm certainly not going to let it. .
.
People all over the world with far greater limitations and challenges are doing far more with their opportunity of another day. .
.
So bring it on Monday, I'm happy to see you. .

Sometimes the challenges you have,  are representations of your successes...
.
.
Keep failing, fail your way all the way to success.  The harder you fail,  the bigger the victory. .
.
Or,  you know,  buy bigger shirts info anticipation of your future success... that works too....

@creativefashionblogger and I were reminiscing on the "what could have been" scenarios our life might have taken if we didn't have 4 kids, 7 pets, and 2 ex spouses tugging at all of our time, emotions, and money.
.
.
Lisa and I would no doubt find ourselves on the front row of various runways around the world absorbing current trends before finding ourselves at a new fancy restaurant each night without a care for what time it was or how early we might need to wake up. .
.
The only time I'd be wearing a shirt is so I wouldn't mess up the leather on my fully loaded @teslamotors model X.  Taking it back off every chance I get to show Lisa all six of my rock hard abs... .
.
But alas,  there I was with dadkid4 on my lap,  in her little ballerina shoes,  too nervous to leave my side just yet... There I was,  not even grasping to a moment of regret knowing that I would trade a million Tesla's,  an 8 pack,  1,000,000 shows and trips... I would suffer a million years of torture if all it meant was I got to be the dad in this moment. .
. 
I am spoiled rotten with these moments.  You know what else,  I know Lisa and I will do those things in their time,  and we will have already experienced a charmed life. .

#mondaymotivation means waking up on purpose. Getting dressed for your SO even if you don't have to...
.
.
Be excited every day,  but especially Monday's.  You can start new week resolutions 52 times a year!

Grind.  That's a 6'3 player getting his own rebound above a 6'6 guy and a 6'9 guy... he simply wanted it more, so he worked harder. .
.
Thank you for the inspiration @spidadmitchell !  Man I love this @utahjazz .
