Day 498: Tom's Door...

...As I turned to walk out the elevator my heart started to beat a little faster. The beating got more pronounced with each step that took me closer Tom's door...

Even though I hadn't slept much in 48 hours, and I'd just come off a delayed 7 hour flight from San Francisco, I was wide awake with my senses fully engaged by the time I reached the foot of Tom's door.

As I knocked on Tom's door I was filled with a sense of "Man, is this really happening!?"

When Tom actually opened the door I walked through and felt a surge of energy mixed with a feeling of wonderment, "Yes, this IS really happening!"

It was an indescribable feeling to finally meet the man himself after 123 days of planning and build up. As Lilla would say, Tom and I "chewed the fat" for hours last night discussing everything from bodybuilding to mindset (and everything in between).

As you know Tom Venuto has been a massive role model for me ever since I first purchased Burn The Fat Feed The Muscle during my Darkest Hour in 2003.

Implementing the Principles of BFFM has transformed my life in every way, and has actually led me to Burn The Fat World Headquarters in New Jersey (all the way from a one-bedroom apartment in downtown Osaka!)

Once again, if you are serious about transforming your mind, body and life I would say the same thing I said back on Day 166:

Tom can only show you the door, you still have to walk through it.


P.S. However, it wasn't all peaches and cream. Just before I went to bed Tom notified me of the following, "Tomorrow is leg day" Ominous words from a bodybuilding legend...
