Repitition is another key to ultimate success, just like routines in order to keep you in good form for the long term.
Take the case of a piano. When i was in school, we used to have the blind gentleman come round to “fix” the piano every couple of months. He would walk in with his faithful guide dog and make sure the piano was in perfect working order, as it was used a lot every day in our school.
Why would a piano need such constant care? It shouldn’t really go wrong should it? The reality was it did and it’s similar to us in many ways.
If you look at our own bodies, there are still people out there thinking we still only need “one magical diet” and everything in life will live happily after. That’s why diets don’t work if they are faddy and they don’t make sense. See what i said yesterday about eating right for life and make your choices as natural as possible.
Just like the piano, you need to train/workout on a constant basis, no one size fits all workout will do it, we all have different abilities after all, some of us have different problems and some can’t do certain things. I do believe though that there is a workout out there for everyone, and literally anyone can get into very good shape, it’s just working with the cards you were dealt, and making the best of it. This isn’t a compromise as i believe most people get a deck of cards you can do amazing things with, despite the obstacles you may well have to overcome.
So the bottom line is that one workout say today and never workout again of course is never going to work. You need to exercise regularly every week if you want to be successful, and you need to keep your body in tune like that piano we had in school. If you don’t exercise, you will be soon hitting those bum notes again!
The bottom line with food is the same, if you eat well 80% of the time, then you are going to be in tune most of the time, going to feel great and have enough energy to do whatever you want. Plus, your chances of staying disease free for the rest of your life are greatly enhanced, always concentrate on getting your insides healthy and your outside appearance will look after itself.
This is why we are doing daily updates on here, we all need to be “kept in tune” like that piano, we all want to hitting the high notes for the rest of our lives. Keeping ourselves in tune means exercising and eating well, when it becomes second nature to do that you will know you are truly living the healthy way, and that you have a very bright future.
