Getting started is the hardest part. Finding that initial motivation. Figuring out what to do, what will work, and what is worth the effort.
You know what is even harder? Getting started when you’re starting over.
When you’re beginning for the first time, each new day is likely to be the most “in shape” you have been, but when you’re starting over, you have to fight one of the most crippling mental obstacles there is– Ego.
You will be plagued by memories of when this was all so easy. You’ll think back to all of the amazing things you used to do and just how thoroughly you took it for granted. You’ll start to see just how all of your hard work was paying off and how long it took to get there, even when you didn’t notice the first time.
I will tell you this, though– Whether you’re starting from scratch, or if you’re trying to get back to where you were after an injury, too much off-time, or something else that caused you to fall from your former levels of fitness…
It is worth it. You can get it back, and better.
So go out there and do whatever you can. Make the changes where they’re needed, and get on the right track to the level of health that you want and need in order to live a long and healthy life. It will suck as first. It always does, but it will get easier each day, until you’ll be looking back and saying, “I can’t believe that I once had trouble with that!”
There’s no shame in difficulty. There is no shame in failure. The only shame is in never even trying.

Well kids, it’s been a great ride. But you know what? All great rides come to an end. And so it is that I must announce my retirement from the role of Tony Stark. Tony has been one of my favorite characters that I’ve ever cosplayed and I’ve had a total blast every time I’ve drawn on that silly eyeliner beard— but sometimes life throws you a curveball and you know it’s just time to move on. I’ve been Tony for three years. I’m ready to try something new.
I want to say a special thanks to my friends in Camp Lehigh. We have had so much fun together over the past two years, and I wouldn’t trade those good times for anything. Those girls made me feel so welcome and so included; I’m honored to have been a part of their wolf pack. Best of luck to you, guys. I hope your future adventures are everything you want them to be.
Don’t cry for me, Argentina. I’ve had the time of my life. Now it’s on to the next chapter!
Hey, so I'm staying up late to finish a paper that's due tomorrow(shhhh, don't tell anyone) but I was wondering if I could get some Cartson fluff or general badassary to help me through the cold, long night ahead???
(I’m supposed to be studying for a final, but your message has convinced me that maybe a break wouldn’t be terrible. I’ll be glad to help out. Now let’s see here…I think I’ll break my seven sentence rule for this.)
“Peggy, look out!”
His wife, his beautiful, wonderful, kick-ass wife, was one step ahead of him though. Before the thug could even get an arm around her to put her in a chokehold, she had already grabbed the man’s hand and twisted around with it. The adversary sank to his knees with a howl of pain that was cut off as Peggy kicked him backwards into a stack of oil drums. A few of them tumbled over onto the now unconscious man’s chest, but they sounded like they were hollow.
“Thanks for the heads up,” she said, brushing her hands together as she surveyed her handiwork. “I think that was the last of Grusmun’s henchmen, so we can take the rest of the Hydra weapons he’s been smuggling in here back to Camp Lehigh before we relieve Daniel and Angie of babysitting Lucy.”
“You know we’re probably going to have to pry our daughter out of Angie’s hands, right?” Jack said with a chuckle, knowing how much Lucy’s aunt and uncle adored her.
December 4th is my wonderful Natasha’s birthday! She is incredibly special to me, I don’t know where I would be in this world without her, and I seriously owe her so much. There’s no one else in this world I would ever want as my Natasha, she’s my perfect partner in crime. So I want her to have the best birthday yet! Please go HERE and wish her a happy birthday, I would appreciate it so much(and I know she will too when she reads all of the birthday wishes)! If you’d like to send her a card check this post for details! Thank you so much, you’re all amazing!
avengersid-tonystark Happy Birthday Tony! It’s not much of a present but I pocketed Howard’s favorite pen down in the bunker at camp Lehigh. It was in a glass case for some reason. Now that I think about it, I’ve never seen Howard actually writing with it, he just stared at it intensely very often.
