In between that time I got small, with very little muscle tone, to the point that it was getting hard to do my job 👎🏽. I was tired, sick, and sore 24/7. So the majority of this progress has honestly been Oct19 to now. ⁣
⁣
Some days (most days) I honestly feel HUGE (mental games are no joke). I’ve spent a long time trying to force myself to be small; both physically and mentally. Then one day it hit me: I’ll never get anywhere by being small, and out came the “I am the Problem” article on FE. ⁣
⁣
Physically, this transition has been difficult. My strength has increased dramatically, and I see more muscle tone, but mentally, it’s honestly a daily struggle not to want to be “small”. But, I take great pride in knowing that I can do my job, and don’t struggle anymore. The effort I’m putting in has paid off. ⁣
⁣
But then days like today I FINALLY see some progress in the core. Core is super important for our jobs, and selfishly, I want to see some definition 😅. Now I’m far from defined abs, but I’m getting there, and I’ll take this progress as a win.⁣
⁣
Biggest changes have occurred over the last few months. Basically from 3 simple things:⁣
1. MORE food (I was significantly under eating).⁣
2. Weighted core work⁣
3. SLEEP (Naps are life yo)⁣
4. Dove in to the “stoicism” mindset
⁣
So basically what I’m saying, is no transition is easy. But trust the process, stay CONSISTENT, embrace the obstacles, and you’ll get there.

  • On 1/21 at 15:38 hours the Massapequa Fire Department was alerted for a house fire on Merrick Road. Dispatch was advising they were getting report of a mobile camper on fire in a driveway next to a house.  Additionally they had PD on scene reporting a working fire with exposure issues on two, 200lb propane tanks. First arriving Chief transmitted the siginal 10 (working fire) he has a mobile camper with fire showing. Engine 635 had the first line, while Ladder 636 searched and overhauled. The fire was quickly knocked down, and contained to the rear of the camper. The mobil camper was currently being lived in, as the main home was under construction. The camper was positioned between a boat, two trailers and a boat house.  @seafordfire was alerted as a FAST.  The fire is under investigation by Nassau county fire Marshals.
