If you want to reach your ultimate body transformation goals, at the end of the day, it comes down to your habits.
Good ones or bad ones will make you or break you.
Quick personal story as an example. I had gotten into the habit over the last six months or so of having a beer or two, most nights of the week.
I started doing it to relax when I would get home after many times starting the day at 445am, and not finishing off at work until 715 or so at night.
(That turns out to be a bad idea in itself, having a drink to wind down at night … the exact reasons why we can talk about another day.)
Anyway, I am trying to get into top shape for the Progressive Calisthenics Certification in a couple of weeks that I am attending in San Diego … and not only that, I just wanted to NOT drink a drop of alcohol for 21 days, just to see how it went.
It was something that started with a drink or two every other night … and slowly progressed to almost every night. And something about that, I just really didn’t like that much.
I am now 10 days in (had my last drink on New Year’s Eve) with NO alcohol … and I feel great!
I also have lost three pounds which is a nice bonus
I will probably go back to having a beer or two, two or three nights per week after the PCC … but I share this with you because this was a habit I needed to break if I was going to reach my body transformation goal.
The “useless” extra calories … plus I guess just the lack of discipline that went along with the whole thing … was not conducive to what I am trying to accomplish with my health and fitness.
The last few days I’ve been talking about a book – by my friend Tyler Bramlett – all about “27 Body Transformation Habits YOU Can’t Ignore” …
