“You know I’m back like I never left
Another sprint, another step
Another day, another breath
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept
I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind
Seek and I find I can sleep when I die
Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride
And shit I’m straight
I’m on my wave, I’m on my wave
Get out my way, I’m running late, what can I say
I heard you die twice- once when they bury you in the grave
And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name
So when I leave here on this earth, did I take more than I gave
Did I look out for the people or did I do it all for fame
Legend, it’s exodus searching for euphoria
Trudging through the mud to find the present, no ignoring us
Got 20,000 deep off in the streets like we some warriors
My mama told me never bow my head, wooo!
I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious”
– Glorious – Macklemore
When you are on top of the world- embrace it, love it, live in that moment because you never know when it could all change in the matter of seconds. You can go from killing adulthood to being told you may not live through the night.
The best way to describe how I feel right now is- Glorious. The verses from above describe my view on life right now perfectly. I’m on top of the world- I feel amazing…I feel incredible…I feel GLORIOUS.
I gained 3.4 lbs from yesterday and I don’t give a shit- this is why I would suggest weighing yourself daily. I’ve weighed myself almost every day since 01.01.2018 and I’ve found patterns and I’ve learned how my body feels and I can almost tell you exactly what I’ll wait before I step on the scale in the morning. I’ve learned how my body feels when I retain water and sometimes, I just feel “lighter”- it’s hard to explain, but- for me, this is a huge part of Sharketo- listening to your body.
I knew I would gain about a pound, so I decided to take the wife out for a little “date night” and we hit up Buffalo Wild Wings- I stayed Sharketo but I went over on calories, fat and protein…which led to the overnight gain. I’ll go light today and this weekend and we won’t eat out again for a month or so and I’ll be right back down in now time- and lower. I’m still down over 70 lbs. in just 3 months…still following the process, still motivated and inspired and still focused on hitting that 100 lbs lost mark by July 1st….hopefully way sooner.
I’ve weighed myself 84 days this year (out of 95 due to appendix issue) and I’ve gained weight 19 of those days. My highest overnight weight gain was 4.4 back on Day 35. I gained 6.6 lbs over a 3 day period back in February. Weight gain is just a part of the process and I’ve learned that and that is a huge benefit for me- I don’t get discouraged because I see it coming and I know it’s only temporary so it’s easier to just keep moving on with the process. I lost 9.8 lbs in 5 days before today and you can NOT continue something like that without your body adjusting. I’m still down 3 lbs. for the week and I’ve got 3 days before my “official” weigh in.
I’m basically 100% recovered from my appendix issue and today is my 5th day in a row being back in the Sharketo Dojo. I’ve only done the bike and boxing but Monday I start back with the full routine- from running to weights- ALL OF IT.
I’m pretty sure Chapter Four is going to be titled – Glorious.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
