Day 223: Food Poisoning Will Not Stop Me!


Today I got hit with my second bout of salmon induced food poisoning - Day 74 was my first hit. I mixed 200g of salmon with my salad for meal 3 today and felt the effects in my gut almost immediately.

I went home early from work to get some rest, and to try and limit the effects of it. Once home I mixed up some probiotic powder & protein with some cold water.

Searing Pain!

With jabbing pains still slicing the insides of my stomach I laid down for 30 minutes with not much hope of completing my scheduled workout.

Once I got up from my rest the pain started to subside! I ate some more fruit and salad as another couple of hours ticked and gradually I was back to about 80%. At 7:30 PM I made a decision...my scheduled workout was back on!

Without hesitation I got my gear together, hopped on my bike and rode to my gym. By the time I started my "Core 6x6: Lower Body" Workout of 130 KG Squats supersetted with 80 KG Barbell Deadlifts I was in the zone!

Now Check This!

I actually increased the load on these exercises tonight and as a consequence had one of my best workouts ever!

Now, why is this important? Here's why, the self-imposed pressure of my impending Mission 3 "Muscle Gain" transformation has me so focused and locked into my target that I don't have time for pitiful excuses - like food poisoning.

To be perfectly honest, had this bout of food poisoning occured a month ago I would have taken the day off...BUT now its a different story.

The pressure of holding myself - and my physique progress - publicly accountable on this blog demands a "winning, no excuses mindset".

Would You Like Some "Positive Pressure"

I firmly believe that public accountability is THE difference between my recent success and the 6 years of failure I experienced previously.

Now, how about you? Could you do with a dose of "positive pressure" to start - or complete - your physique transformation journey? If your answer is yes I have some great news for you.
