You’re Not a Failure

“Failure is an event, not a person”

– Zig Ziglar

Everyday we are faced with obstacles that will challenge our goals.  If you have a moment of weakness and fail to stay the course, you are not a failure.  You are simply human.  Do not let one bad meal or one missed workout, derail all the hard work you have already done.

So, if you fail in one moment, get up, and get back to your plan and kick your goals in the ass!

Morning Cardio

The Run: wake up time 5:00 am

This morning’s cardio was a 2.5 mile run.  I have heavy leg training later today, so didn’t want to do too much. I also like to do a mix of HIIT and steady state cardio to work all aspects of my fitness.  

Tracked by fitbit fitness stats:

Distance: 2.29 miles

What’s for Dinner?

Sweet Potato Hash

Ingredients: Makes 2 servings 

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 4 whole eggs
  • Black pepper and salt to taste
  • Granulated Garlic to taste
  • One large cucumber

Steps:

  1. Peel and chop 2 medium sweet potatoes, cucumber and red peppers.
  2. Place sweet potatoes in skillet over medium heat and cover with lid for five minutes. I like to spray the skillet with cooking spray to help reduce the amount of fat in the dish.
  3. After 5 minutes stir potatoes and add red peppers and cover with lid.
  4. Once the Potatoes and peppers are tender, crack 4 whole eggs of potatoes and cover
  5. Cook until the yolks are done to your preferred doneness (I like mine somewhat runny)
  6. Split into half and serve with fresh cucumbers.
