Every bit as true for your training as it is for your daily life.
If you don’t want…
* the hard work
* the difficulty
* the sacrifice
* the re-arranged priorities
* the focus
* the improved diet
* the regular, incremental increase in daily physical movement
* the patient dedication
* the consistent discipline
* the slow and steady march boldly forward
Then you don’t want…
* The results
It’s as simple as that.
No amount of hemming, hawing, or excuse-making will take the place of any of the above requirements to take you from where you are to where you want to be.
Physical transformation is not complicated. Move, and be consistent with it.
Got an hour per day? Great! Give it.
Only got half an hour? Give that.
10 minutes? Pour your heart into that 10 minutes, and then move 30 seconds here, 1 minute there throughout the day.
Grab some vegetables or nuts for a snack instead of a Snickers.
Drink water instead of yet another sugary crap-uccino.
Little things add up, but it’s up to you to snag them.
Give what you can and you will take what you’ve earned. Don’t mistake your inability to go 100 mph for an inability to go 50. And whatever you do, don’t mistake “I won’t” for “I can’t.”
It’s Monday. Go forth and punch the rest of the week in the face, as well as all ensuing weeks.
Remember, it’s up to you.
