Your good habits that you are developing right now have probably helped you to a body that is far more energetic, lower in body fat, stronger in both joint and bone strength, healthier all round, and generally i think everything is just “going a lot better” for you. Your body doesn’t really like spluttering around on poor fuel, it doesn’t like having to work very hard just to function, it likes being looked after, feeling good and the realities are that we take better care of our cars, dogs, and house better than we take care of our bodies, a lot of us anyway but not all of course!
The saying “if it aint broke, don’t fix it” is adopted by many of us. This means to some that we can drink and eat as much as we like, and as long as we can still do “normal” things, then where’s the problem!
The difference between doing these normal things in life and actually performing well can be quite staggering though.
Normal things may be going down the pub, cleaning your teeth, shaving, having a shower and going to work, that’s it no more!
Performing can be going to work and really excelling in your chosen environoment, it can mean actually working out and actually excelling at it too, it can mean having higher aspirations than “normal” people and actually achieving all or at least most of what you set out to do.
The difference between “normal” and performing can be quite amazing as you can see. Normal is simply surviving and hoping that no bad news comes around the corner, and performing is usually getting up and doing something, achieving it and once you do that, setting new goals and achieving the next standard.
When you are performing, the next rung up the ladder seems a natural process, and leaving the grass grow around your feet is simply not an option. The people who simply “function” in life are usually the complainers, the could have people, the should have people, the would have people, if things had just fallen into their lap, they would be “successful” too!
It’s a great sunday out there, had my run at 6.30am this morning, i feel so much better now and sunday from my view is looking pretty good! Sunday is always the day i try and relax but that still includes a run, anything that makes me feel better i try and do. It’s no hardship at all seriously, it’s actually a form a therapy for me and i’m sure many of you feel exactly the same.
When you get to this stage, exercise is an essential part of your life and you need it to feel good! This is a good thing trust me!! It’s just like cleaning your teeth, but about 10 times as enjoyable, especially as the spring is here officially i believe!!!
A great day to start your exercise ambitions, ot day 63 for a lot of you in your 84 days challenge to get into great shape!!
