Welcome to our first official Fit Jerk Friday! Without further ado, here’s FJ!
Getting the ball rolling on anything new is quite the bitch as most of you will know, specially if you’re a fellow blogger. So for the first FitJerk Friday, I was actually stumped. “What the hell should I start with?”
Eventually, I settled on the concept of potential. Your potential specifically. What you are capable of achieving in your lifetime is so staggering, it might cause your brain to implode if you truly realized it. Potential is always there but most people can never harness it… but today we will change all of that.
I mean it’s easy to look at Jenny-the-sales-manager’s cute apartment, her mini cooper that she uses to buzz around town in, her loving boyfriend, her closet full of fancy clothes… and say “Jenny has lived up to her potential and made a great life for herself”
But what the outsider looking in doesn’t know is that Jenny (just like any other person on this planet) has the potential to start multi-million dollar business, get a harem of men begging for her attention all the while having so much attractive value that she becomes the center of focus into any room that she walks into.
THAT is potential. But most don’t know it exists because we can’t actively see it. The really fucked up part is that your potential is only limited by your imagination. If you think you can become a billionaire, and truly believe it, then you have the potential to be a god damn billionaire, end of story.
If you believe that you can have a Hollywood body in the next 6 months, then you have the potential to achieve a Hollywood body, it’s just that simple. Unfortunately, simplicity is often ignored… and that is when you end up with lame circumstances in your life. It’s a shit feeling.
So from this point on, you need to start believing that you can do more and achieve more. I wasn’t born with a 6pack, I mean seriously. I had problems just like you, but then I also had a vision, I single-handedly decided what my own potential ought to be… and then followed through by taking action.
What are you potentially capable of?

And to go along with that food for thought, I’m going to share a recipe that’s become a lifesaver for mornings when I don’t have time to make breakfast. It’s so simple!
1 cup kale (can also use spinach or Swiss chard)
1 cup raw milk (could also use skim)
1 cup frozen berries
Put in a blender and voila! A smoothie to go!
I’m sure you have lots of healthy recipe ideas. Please post them below! When participating, please use common blog etiquette and courtesy by linking your participating posts back to this one, and visiting the other participants.
