A/N - Here’s part three. I haven’t finished part 4 as yet (it’ll be the last part) but I’m hoping I get time to work on it in time for tomorrow. Enjoy! Previous chapter can be found here
Lucy lay on the hammock as looked at her best friend for two
years and counting. She silently laughed. She wondered what Natsu would say to
that, him being the great and powerful END. Thank the gods he told her his
actual name because she didn’t like calling him END. It was as if there was
nothing more to him than destruction, which was the furthest from the truth.
She’d known it at the age of four and she knew it now. With the exception of her father, Natsu was a
person who would always have her back. A dark protector.
His wings, a mixture of deep red and black, were spread out
behind him. His eyes were fixed in a permanent furrow as he read some
mysterious spell book. Her eyes raked over the intricate markings on his face.
Compelling in the way they were formed,they signified the magic that touched
him. Unlike Zeref’s other creations, Natsu was born… as Zeref’s own brother.
But Natsu had died and the gods cursed Zeref for bringing back his brother.
5ish years ago there on the left. Back then I was 6 foot 160 pounds and I thought I need to lose weight cause I felt I had a gut and man boobs. Meow on the right I’m 6 foot 1 inch bouncing between 190 and 195 feeling better than ever and could care less about weight, just size and definition. Trying to build and cut simultaneously feels so impossible but seeing the progress I’ve made over the years keeps my head down and me pushing forward. So stoked on the future. #transormation #progress #progresspic #beefcake #fitness #fitfam
#MM: Its a great day to go confidently in the direction of your dreams
Today I wish for everyone to let go of the fear of rejection or failure that they may experience in pursuit of fulfilling their goals. It will happen, and it will make you better. The feeling of trying and knowing you gave it a shot is far more satisfying and overwhelming than the minor feeling of discouragement. You wont be embarrassed- shit I doubt any one will even notice if you ‘fail’ but beyond that, it isn’t a failure unless you accept it as one and chose to give up. In this event, get up, dust yourself off and try again.
Learn your craft. Study it, study the people who have mastered it before you. Read a book. Read multiple books. Any information you can absorb will benefit you in one way or another and help to cushion the blows. The point is, just try. Whats the worst that could happen? No one gets it right on the first try, or the second.. or even the third.
I would like for everyone to be honest with themselves today about what they want out of life then take a gradual step in that direction. It doesn’t have to be drastic and it doesn’t have to be life changing yet- although it will be. I believe your first step is the most important in that it is your acknowledgement to try, which is something you haven’t done before. Check out a book at the library or read an article online just do something.
Its a great day today to get shit done. Take a step forward in the right direction with a positive attitude and see how things turn out, it may not be so scary after all.

Whats going on everyone!? Happy Tuesday or for me, Happy Transformation Tuesday! Its been about a little longer than a month since my last progress picture and I wanted to share it with you guys!
This is when I first started working out again weighing 220 and this is me a month plus later (drrrrrrrrrrrruuuuuummmmmm rrrrrroooooollllllllllll)
TA-DA!!!!! Today I weighed in at 209 but to be honest I did it after my cardio session so it might not stay there, BUT STILL! I think I am making great progress, even for a guy who had knee surgery two weeks ago!
I am not going to lie but its hard not to get upset with myself because I am not where I want to be, but seeing where I came from really jump started the motivation battery to keep going!
Here are two tips I would suggest if your on the same mission as i am which include:
Nothing comes over night! Except when you play the lotto and become a billionaire!
I get tempted every time I enter the bathroom and that is to check my weight! I ONLY do it once a week just to make sure I am on track depending on what my goal is: gaining or losing weight. Honestly I try not to let the number on the scale affect my progress because If i can see in the mirror new definition coming in or that I need to go up another hole in my belt, I know I am on the right track!
But thats my two cents! if you have any transformation pictures, please feel free to post and share your hard work and I will be more than happy to repost!
Alright you guys, I gotta go and be great! 16 days down 184 to go!
