A simple walk is all it takes to get started. The catch is that you can never quit…
Last night at Gold’s Gym, our Son asked why are the out of shape people in the ‘before’ pictures never smiling and the same people in the ‘after’, in shape pictures, always smiling?
Then he answered his own question and I replied, “Exactly!”
Do you want to be healthier or are you good with where you are right now?
If you’re good with where you are right now, can you see into the future, years down the road, and still see a healthy you?
What if you fought for your health the same way our police fight for justice?
It all depends on one thing, and one thing only.
Know what it is?
It all depends on you. Period. End of story.
How much “on-purpose” thinking and acting do you do in your day-to-day routine?
A lot? Some? None?
How would your days look and feel (differently?) if you tried to be more “on-purpose”?
What are the advantages, the disadvantages and what doesn’t even matter?
These are all opportunities to make your life and the lives of others different, better.
When I run and it’s windy, I always run harder into the wind than when it’s at my back.
When I run and there are hills, I run harder up the hill than down it.
When I warm up, before running in a competition, I sweat and breath hard, really hard. You have to be in shape just to warm up.
And when the race is into the wind, because often it is, guess who has an advantage?
We often don’t know why we run, we just do. Not because it is doing us good, but because we love it so much and can not stop ourselves from doing it.
Here’s what happened yesterday. I wrote a Lane 8 blog post. Been doing that everyday for the past year.
Plus, there was You Tube video to illustrate what a slow and steady approach to diet and exercise can do.
The key to slow and steady is not quitting.
One-third who read and watched were inspired.
One-third could really care less one way or the other.
And one-third said to themselves, “Showoff“.
Sad, but true.
