Look at Bo Go!

We are halfway through our second week of training with Bo Dean. We are seeing great strides already. Some of these strides may not seem that much to others, but to me progress is progress and it should all be rejoiced!

Bo is doing wonderful! To see the battle that he has with himself and to see him overcome his demons in the morning, afternoon and evening is so amazing! If you think the battle with obesity is just about coming to the gym, your completely wrong! Bo battles getting out of bed, while he is at the gym, looking in the mirror after a shower, going to meetings where bad food is offered, late night before bed, and the list goes on and on. It is a constant battle and to see Bo fight off these battles in his head is tough to see, but uplifting as he keeps pressing on and on.

Despite overcoming the obstacle of showing up to the gym every morning, Bo has lengthened his time on the elliptical, increased the weight on his exercises, increased the amount of exercises being performed, increased the intensity to his exercises, increased flexibility in his legs, while decreasing some pounds in the process. I would call that an awesome start!!!

Make sure you continue to give Bo words of encouragement because as the "new" wears off and the motivational fire that is lit under his tail starts to fade away, Bo will have to rely on accountability and others pushing him to keep his butt moving in the right direction. You all have been wonderful so far.

Today, Bo and I came up with a great idea. We are going to take a photo after every session and create a video at the end of our journey to share his progress from start to finish. Well, his exercise will never be finished but his journey to get to his 220 pound mark certainly will be. This is the first photo and when all is said and done, you will get his last photo along with all the others in between.

Now all we have to do is pick a song to go with his....what do you think should be the song that we incorporate all the photos with??? Let me hear your thoughts!!!

Best wishes and Happy Training!

Happy Training!
