My newest project: Cliffhangers. Just like the salmon ladders, I'm going to drill the hell out of this one. This was my first attempt. I have a LONG way to go. My buddy, Justin gave me some sound advice on how to negotiate this obstacle. More videos to come. #cliffhangers#obstacles#americanninjawarrior#training
Tonight I tested myself. I've been eating a whole foods plant based, or vegan, diet for 7 weeks. It has been a challenge for sure, especially so because my partner is pretty much on the opposite end of the dietary spectrum. So when he suggested getting pizza for dinner, I voiced my frustration about not really feeling satisfied by no-cheese takeout pizza (I am not immune to vegan junk food by any means!). So, tonight I got a cheese pizza. And three hours later I can definitely say it was not worth it. Not only because of the physical discomfort I'm experiencing right now, but also because it did not live up to the expectations I had based on prior pizza consumption. It simply was not good. What once was a weekly treat is now a major reminder of how much better my body responds to whole, plant foods. Definitely not planning on anymore "tests" anytime soon 🤢 #vegan#wholefoods#plantbased#diet#pizza#fail#obstacles#challenge
76/365 - ✨Share your story✨ I’ve learnt that we all have stories to tell which may just impact lives for the better. I had this conversation with my sister earlier and it had me thinking about how I’ve felt that sharing my story also contributed to my personal growth. I really believe that our experiences in life will always shed a greater purpose, which is more meaningful than seeking material wealth ✨
Shon ran Tough Mudder New Orleans down in Louisiana today and unfortunately he didn’t have the best of experiences.
He is running the course again tomorrow and will call in to be on tomorrow’s episode of @obstaclerunningadventures!
