No BS Excuses, Pure Bust Ass, No Compromises

I Wasted a Lot of Time

Today, Feb 2024, vs 18 months ago, after dumping booze, Sep 2022.

Relax. I’m mostly irritated with myself. So much wasted time-of-life. I’ve had a lot of successes in it…life, that is…but at 63 now, it just irks that I didn’t latch onto something so simple.

So simple, but so damn hard. And it’s relentless. That’s the thing, really. Anyone…everyone…does tough and hard, sometimes. But doing it over and over and over? Doing it because it’s hard? Rejecting the easy and quick? Embracing the suck?

But there’s an elegance to it. That too, is simple.

Few others do it. Each day you persist is another day that others drop off. They quit. They make an excuse. They make one little allowance, and it’s the crack in the dam, and it begins the start of that story they tell after another bunch of wasted years—once they do whatever to get back to doing what they ought never have quit doing in the first place.

And such is life for so many. It was mine, and it should not have been.

So what do you do?

You start now. Right now. You don’t stop. You never stop. You never ever stop.

… So that’s the backdrop for a report on my 8 months of continuous busting ass in the gym, 5 times per week. Very little time off since July 1. The results are apparent but now, having reached a rather advanced stage, past newbie gains, there are some things to pass along about how to stay in the game because these last two weeks have kicked my ass as I pushed, and pushed some more.

The story continues… Plus, a few closing remarks about a new little experiment on the social front. This is all really good, practical, actionable stuff. I aim to improve your life value far beyond the cost of a membership. Other members always testify to that, and my retention rates are sky high.

I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, lifestyle...to philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More
