Erik’s Fat Boy Motivation: one of my favorite things that the Petty Officers and Chiefs would yell at us in boot camp was, “suck it up buttercup!” This was usually their response to our whines of being tired or wanting to quit. While I’m not going to yell at you, unless you really want me too, I am going to tell you that your excuses, habits, and desire for easy will tell you that you can’t meet your goals. Well, buttercup, tell it to shut up!

You’ve got what it takes to reach your goals, but it is going to take everything you can throw at it. You will have to shed your excuses, bad habits, junk food, and laziness for the opposite of all those. You have within you the potential for great things in your life, we all do. That does not negate the uniqueness of our abilities because I cannot run your race or overcome those fears. But together through encouragement, dedication, hard work, and motivation we can reach our goals.

Are you ready?

You can do this!

Have a great day and a great workout!
