Be your own best friend!

For most part of my life, I strongly believed that they way you are born (both mentally and physically) is the way you are going to die. In my mind didn’t exist the word change.

“This is who I am and nothing will ever change…” was my usual approach to life.
Although this was one of my strongest belief, I never fully accepted it. I lived most of my time in this world, fighting a daily battles with myself and if I am brutally honest, the battle is still there and it will never end.

But today, the approach with myself is totally different and this is difference that is making the difference in my mental, physical and professional achievements.

I never fully liked myself, I lived most part of my life with a mask of confidence that was never really existing. The time spent with myself was used to blame the world for the way I was, the way I looked, the way I interact with others without really take any responsibility and action in order to change.

Many people today see the results of what was a lifetime battle, struggle, pain, tears and rejection. I often been asked “How did you CHANGE? How did you achieved such huge results?”

My answer is always the same…”I didn’t really changed, I only started to LOVE myself more, and the changes occurred almost “automatically.

I promise you, your level of achievement in life is proportional to how much you love and respect yourself. PERIOD! All the rest, is absolute bullshit! (Sorry for the French!)

The point is: Love yourself the way you want to be loved, respect yourself, the way you want be respected, appreciate yourself for who you are, accept your past, accept your roots, accept and forgive yourself for all your failure and mistakes. Recognise and reward your small and big successes.

Stop blaming the world for what you don’t like about yourself. If there is something that you don’t like, YOU and ONLY YOU have the power to change it.

Fight your own battles without expecting any reward and/or validation from others.
Your daily duty is one: love, respect and appreciate yourself.

Remember, the only person you will going to live all your life with is yourself!
Become your own best friend.

Peace,
Antonio

Learn to love yourself. Learn to LIVE!

“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It is sanity.” – Katrina Mayer
I never thought possible in my entire life being able to wear a sleeveless shirt and feel comfortable in it.
I never thought possible I was able to take a picture of myself wearing it and publishing it on the web.
Being fat, being ashamed of myself as person and for the way I looked for pretty much all my life, today, when I look myself in the mirror, everything looks like a surreal dream.

I always been very, very harsh with myself and for this reason, I still feel that I am very far from the mind and body I really want, but I am learning.

I am learning day by day to take one step at the time, I am learning to enjoy the little steps even when they seems apparently small and most important thing, I am learning to enjoy the journey.

A journey made of sacrifices, tears, sweat, sometimes failures and disappointment, but it’s my journey, I own it and I am on the driver seat, with God’s help I know where I am going and I am happy with it.
At almost 42 years old, I am finally learning, for the first time in my entire life to love myself. To love myself for who I am, enjoying the good and accepting the bad.

I am learning to be excited about who I want to become. I am proud of not becoming a copy of someone else, but simply becoming the best version of myself.

I understand that you will never be able to love someone else, completely an unconditionally, if you don’t love yourself first. However to learn loving yourself it is the hardest thing that you will ever do in your entire life, but is the only thing that will give you a LIFE.

Start today, start small, but start. Right now is the moment to create your new you. Today and NOT tomorrow, because tomorrow can be too late.

Peace,
Antonio

Record of the Day: Lowest Weight in 25 years!


I took this is a picture in January 2014 when my personal development, mental and physical started. However I was fat, I was NOT fat as much as I was years before this photo when I reached the top weight 120 Kg (264 lbs). I will probably find some pictures soon to show you how ridiculous I was.

Anyway I have just checked my weight (even in the afternoon you should not) and with surprise (I haven’t eaten really really clean lately 🙂 ) I am currently  on the lowest weight ever reached in the last 25 years 82.9 kg (182.7 lbs) and I am very happy about it!

As I said in the previous post I have started today  Insanity MAX:30 and by the end of the 60 days I weigh 75kg (165 lbs) or less! This is now a public goal!

Insanity MAX:30 – The journey continue…


And the journey continue with Insanity MAX:30

Today I have started the programme that will run until the 26 March 2017 – in the picture above the results I had in the last 3 years, with more focus on what I have achieved since August 2016 when with Focus T25 I have stated to use BeachBody home programmes.

I am still pretty still far from my real goal but, so far a great life changing journey and also great results…however I know I can do better than that!

Insanity Hardest Workout? Max Interval Plyo!

Just finished my day 41 of Insanity (1st Week / Month 2) and I am pretty confident to say that Max Interval Plyo workout is the hardest workout in the whole programme and in my personal experience the hardest workout I have ever done since I started my journey in August  2016 with BeachBody home programmes with Focus T25.

I thought that the first month was though but The “Max” workouts of the second month are all pushed to a completely new level of  “Insanity” and I mean literally, you have really got to dig deep.

Basically you work for about 55 minutes with three different sets of exercises, the first two composed of three rounds of repetitions with a 30 minute water break between, where you have 30 seconds to think: “why am I doing this???” 🙂
The final set is the longest, and has hardest moves.

How to change a shit day in a great day!! Change your thoughts and focus!

This last day of November, started at the lowest point possible. For some reason I had not intention to do my Insanity workout, and I didn’t, and I was in an awful mood. 🙁

I usually do my workout around 6.30am, this morning at 8am I was still in bed, which something very uncommon for me and something I am not happy with.

Laziness without reason is not something I am comfortable with. Anyway sometime you need to let things go, some days are born to be shit and there is nothing to do with it!

Well, my last sentence, the underlined one above, it’s actually an excuse, an excuse that we often use when we are not willing to take responsibility for our own shit, when we decide to be not in control of our thoughts and we let our internal crap and negative self-talk define our days.

41th Birthday (Getting Vintage) – Insanity Week 4 and BodyStats Check + Considerations!

28112016-8-45amae_vintageYesterday, 27 November 2016, was my 41th Birthday, I don’t usually care but, I was really tempted to celebrate with a huge amount of “lovely crappy food”….I won against the temptation and I have decided to celebrate, instead, eating even less calories than I usually do, even because this morning I supposed to have my weight and body fat checked so it was a wise decision stay cleaned as possible.

Long story short, this morning at 6am, I started my week 4 of Insanity (Month 1) with a nice 56 minutes of Pure Cardio and Cardio ABS and then I went to check my progress with my PT.

15109360_10154035089387452_1499817315156141690_nA good celebration for my 41th birthday, I have lost 4 more Kg (Personal Weight World Record 83.5 Kg) since lat time I have checked on the 10 October 2016 and the Body fat percentage, dropped by 1.2% from 21% to 19.8%. Not too much but as I always say: one step at the time is better than no step at all.

Apparently, though, based on the stats, I am not eating enough daily calories to healthily sustain my training and my body transformation.

As part of the 4Kg loss, I also lost 0.9 kg in muscles and it seems like with the time this can damage my health. In order to prevent that….Guess? I have to eat more calories = I have to eat more food.

Food & Sugar Cravings: A little story of success…

Behind every success there are struggles, nothing is free, nothing is easy BUT, small daily victories in little battles is what will make you win the war.

This is a story of a little battle I won against food and cravings, nothing special but something that reminds me that if you want, you have enough power within to change what is not helping you to achieve your goals and dreams.

Keep going, keep pushing.

Peace,

Learn and practice self-love. Do it now!

Love yourself and be proud of everything you do, even your mistakes. Because even mistakes mean that you’re are trying.

Recognising and rewarding your big and small successes in life, also accepting your mistakes, are skills that we all MUST to learn and practice daily.

Loving yourself more, it’s not a selfish act, but it’s the only opportunity you have to create a good relationship with the only person that you have to spend all your life with. YOU!

So it’s better that you start now! It’s not easy, I know….but I am doing it and you can do it too!
