The Badass's Creed

This was borrowed from an amazingly inspiring woman from Lean Eating (who is a reformed paleo/crossfitter), Amanda:

 The Badass's Creed

This is my body. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My body is my best friend. It is my life. I must respect it as I must respect my life.

My body is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will love it as a sister. I will learn its weaknesses, celebrate its strengths, love its parts, and guide its sights. I will ever guard it against the ravages of all damage as I will ever guard my mind and spirit against damage. I will keep my body well fed and ready. We will become part of each other.

Before my Barbell, I swear this creed. My body and myself are the defenders of my life. We are the masters of my life. We are the saviors of my life. Bí láidir.

And may we all say, Amen.



Replace "awesome" with "badass" and this article pretty much sums up my world view:
I'll admit it.  I spend an embarassing amount of time thinking about how to be awesome.  It's the 'what would Jesus do' of my life.*

*I am not comparing myself to Jesus - but I think he would totally feel me on this.
It's definitely time to get back on the badass train.
