2 Reasons You Should Definitely Make the Effort to Get in Shape
It’s 3:00 a.m. Saturday morning. It was a hectic week, topped off with a long and exciting Friday night. I’m just now getting in. Upon remembering all I have to do over the horribly short weekend, I panicked. I set my alarm for 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Guess what happens next?
Invariably, whenever I do that madness, I end up sleeping until 10, 11 or even 12 the next morning! Having given my body a most unrealistic goal, my brain and body then conspire to ignore my alarm and instead, have me sleep until they are good and ready to wake up.
I want to encourage you in relation to how you treat your body. Right now, your primary responsibility is not to make commitments about fitness that you are very likely to break like getting “a 6 pack,” or “a chiseled chest,” or “the most toned thighs ever!”
If you see yourself in today’s post feel free to blame your friends. “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk” doesn’t just apply to alcohol. It means that those who love you must intervene when it’s clear you’re going to crash into a wall.
