I just listened to a podcast interview with a guy they call “Tony the Fridge”. The English dude runs races with a refrigerator strapped to his back. He has done half marathons, marathons and other endurance challenges with a 90 fridge on his back to raise money for cancer research.
He set a goal is 2016 to run across America with his fridge.
Honestly, what the fuck is your excuse?
Really. I have people all the time say they don’t have time or don’t have money or don’t want to be sore or are afraid of this or that. I mean come on people, this dude carried a refrigerator for HOURS and HOURS.
But you can’t cut back on beer and snacks to afford your gym membership? You can’t put up with some soreness? You are afraid that he gym is “too competitive” or you are going to be “intimidated”?
Nobody says that you need to carry around refrigerator or do an Ironman or a marathon of even workout everyday. You don’t need to be over the top.
You do need to stop making excuses. You do not to realize that you can put a little more effort into taking care of yourself.
If you are not 100% satisfied with the way that you look and feel then, dude, cowboy the fuck up. There are people out there sleeping on the streets and dying of cancer. You can’t skip the drive thu just one day? You can’t stop smoking because you are “addicted”? Come on. You get “fat shamed”? You feel like shit?
Get over yourself and get to work. Perspective. No matter how much trouble you need to go through to get fit it’s probably a little easier then carrying a 90 pound refrigerator across the country.
I hope this short rant pisses you off. I hope that you want so slap me right now because you are mad that I am calling you out. If this is you then you have two choices: You can keep accepting the bull shit excuses that you have been using or you can draw a line in the sand and do something about it.
This dude Tony the fridge got fed up with people dying from cancer so he decided to do something.
What are you going to do? Have you had enough? Are you sick and tired of what you see in the mirror or do you know in your heart or hearts that YOU could be the one that turns heads at the beach?
It’s up to you. Get to work. I am motivated beyond words today. I am motivated to work harder and to be and do better. If that dude can do what he does then I have so much more in my tank.
Enough talk. Ready? Go.
