Look at that tank over there. Impressive but it needs the belts on the wheels to move. It has guardrails keeping it on track. Right now in life we need guardrails to keep us on track and it doesn’t always have to be your shield lock, family or best friend. In my life I put a lot of emphasis on my weight. I was a good wrestler out of high school, and now that I know what great is seeing it for so many years as a coach I can say I wasn’t great. When the big schools didn’t come knocking on my door I choose not to go to a smaller D2 or NAIA and to still compete. One of the few regrets i have in my life. I went from 5% body fat and weighing 152 lbs to 240 by October of my freshman year. I was depressed for sure. Eating and drinking was all I was about. I have since battled with my weight for all of my adult life. Yo-yoing up and down and my mental states yo-yo’s with that. So at the start of Dec I fell off my fasting diet. It’s okay I thought. I can get it back in, then started not posting as much because I am tired with the season. Then I get Covid and do nothing and went from 191lbs to 205 in a matter of 5 weeks. And without knowing Gator became my guardrail. He asked me to Q. So I had to be there, and I had to do a good job because each and every man in that circle deserves a quality beatdown. So today each and every man who chose to post is my guardrail. They are they to help me pull out of my funk and get back after it(RE-invigorate so to speak). So every time you post you are a guardrail to a HIM that needs to see you face. So keep being HIM because you never know who you are affecting.
