My dad was my biggest fan, He got buried with an animal t-shirt on, that’s how much my bodybuilding meant to him and how proud he was. He would always say this ‘We will never surrender.” And it stuck with me for a long time. I’ve been doing this 22 years.. I’ve been through a lot of shit and kept going no matter what. I remember being in the hospital.. And I was trying to drink protein shakes and trying to get calories in And the doctors are trying to keep me alive and I’m more worried about being skinny.. So that tells me that this is something I love to do There’s just not a day that goes by without thinking about it. As bad as times got sometimes.. I think I never ever gave up. I always be like The next day I would wake up and say f*ck that shit I’m not letting this get to me. I don’t care what I gotta do.. I’ll make it work. Time is the one thing you can’t buy back. I try to make every moment count and not waste any more time. As much as it sucks right now, I know it’s gonna be worth it when it’s over.. The more you suffer the better you look so i’m gonna look real f*cking good. No matter how bad things seem at the time.. There’s always someone out there who is going through way worse than you. My brain is not done doing the set yet, even though the muscles are already fried. And I wanna keep going.. It’s that part of me that likes that pain that it’s burning like crazy, And I just want to keep going till I can’t do no more. You can’t give up when it gets hard.. You can’t give up when you’re in pain.. Do it now while you can as long as you can.. Because you just never know what could happen. Tomorrow could be your last day, So you just need to make every day count.
