My Sunday running with the family up the mountain DOES NOT stop because it’s dark and wet.
It’s our routines that make us what we are.
Giving up this time of year means you give up on your health. You say to yourself that wheezing is just fine with you, because stopping training and eating rubbish will surely invite more difficult breathing in this weather. That can’t be fun.
Giving up right now means you give up on other things in life, because you haven’t got the energy to get up early and go after your ambitions. Simple as that. Those plans “will just have to wait” AGAIN.
We have large numbers at the gym still hitting it hard right now, and we deeply praise them and sincerely appreciate their efforts.
You GET IT.
You get what the connection is between great health, personal achievement and happiness.
Many people who struggle with their health want to turn back the clock when they were 18, and how good they felt. They rue the day they started on blood pressure tablets for example because their didn’t look after themselves enough over a number of years.
Yet they are still not willing to change their lifestyle, so eating rubbish and drinking a few times a week is the “connection” they make with youth, even if it’s half killing them now.
Your habits MAKE YOU or BREAK YOU. We try to stay a very strong team, picking each other up along the way.
As you get older, great health matters far more than spending too much on cosmetic material things that don’t matter, especially this time of year.
Your daily habits will make you rich in health if you practice a few simple things daily, we all have the same choices, some take them, some ignore them but they all have a cost now and in the future.
Look after yourself.
