Hi ,

"Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out."  - Art Linkletter

Sometimes in life, no matter how much we prepare, we can't control every event that affects us.  However, crucially, we can choose how we react to that event.

As I write this, there have been numerous accidents on 290 in Harris County due to terrible weather which is only due to worsen over Sunday evening and Labrada HQ is located in the proverbial eye of the winter storm.

As a result of this, we have made the decision to close down much of the office and warehouse apart from critical cover to ensure our team's safety.

Now, we could moan and whine about why shutting down the office has put us behind our goals or waste time blaming the weather or whatever else comes to mind... but blame rarely if ever provides a solution.

Instead, our entire team is already notified of the situation and we've ensured all our standard Monday meetings will go ahead remotely.  I will utilize the saved commute time to work through my Monday list of tasks and ensure everything runs smoothly.  Is it perfect, no, but it sure as heck, will still be a productive day.

In our newsletter this week, we have some great articles. Whether you're finding out if you should do cardio or weights first, or how to improve your appetite to gain muscle mass, or even tips on how to choose the most nutritious red meat, please do leave us a  review to let us know if you enjoyed the article. You can find the reviews scoring system just below each article.

Have a great week , and remember you can't control everything but you can control your reaction to it.

All the best,

Jennifer Witt
Lost 14 lbs
My goal was to lose weight from having a baby at 41 years old, to gain muscle, and to firm up. I feel so much better about myself and I have more energy. I know that I did NOT quit, despite wanting to throw in the towel! I cannot wait to be able to finally go back to the gym, and also, to go to a playground and run around with my 4 year old!!

Kyle McBay
Lost 11 lbs & 3% Body Fat
My goal was to get bigger and more muscular that I ever have been. Depending on your perspective, I am 'lucky' to have always been the skinny kid. I decided to try something different, focus even more on food and change the training up to build clean mass. I am proud to say that my physique is the best it has ever been in my almost 45 years, that is something I am immensely proud of.
