If you go to the gym and you work out, come back and you look in the mirror; you will see nothing. If you go to the gym the next day and you come back and look at the mirror; you will see nothing. You think, so clearly there’s no results. It can’t be measured. It must not be effective, so we quit.
Or if you fundamentally believe, this is the right course of action to stick, to make yourself to that act of service. You can make yourself to the regime of exercise. You can’t screw it up if you eat chocolate cake one day. You can skip a day or two. But if you stick with it consistently, not exactly sure what day, but I know you’ll start getting into shape. Going to the gym for nine hours a day doesn’t get you into shape. Working out every day for 30 minutes gets you into shape. It’s not about the events. It’s not about intensity. It’s about CONSISTENCY.
Take exquisite care of yourself. Sleep deeply. Stretch gently. Drink enough water. Drink herbs infused in water. Drink in the warmth of the sun. Try early morning yoga. Allow beauty to be a priority. Spirituality is beauty. Brush your hair with wooden comb. Massage your face. Moisturise with oils. Breathe. Meditate. Write down your desires, dreams & goals. Visualise. Sweat. Sweat in a gym, that’s better. Bathe. Take your time.
Once you stop fantasizing about that ideal version of yourself and start working towards becoming that person by setting your alarm clock earlier and actually going to the gym, and actually volunteering at places, and actually eating healthier, and actually remaining consistent, and not procrastinating, and working just a little bit harder, you’ll realize that it was so easy all along.
Becoming your ideal self will only ever exist in your mind until you make the decision to work towards becoming that person. Get up!! Get going!! It’s now, there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Get that flashlight and pave your own path. No one else is going to do it for you.
Healthy doesn’t mean a salad. Healthy isn’t a measure of weight. Being healthy involves your mind, spirit and heart just as much as it involves your body. Each person’s version of healthy is different. Sweets don’t make you unhealthy but sadness will.
There was a time in my life when I used to hit gym every morning without fail, continued it for 3 whole years. Understood the capabilities of my body & mind, started feeling/looking the best version of myself after hitting that 5% bodyfat goal. I was always on schedule to sleep at night, because I was excited to wake up for 5AM morning workout. Body and mind both were on sync which helped me break my own comfort zone once again.
Yeah there were few who tried to stereotype me about my interest in gym & workout. The best part; all those who were saying that used to look like “Some Dad turned 50 & his only achievement is his beer belly”.How the fuck can “Gym” or “Workout” be a stereotype!! If it is, it is the best STEREOTYPE to be. At the end I must say “The difficulty in physical training/diet & lifestyle, handling such stereotypes with peace, all make you a DISCIPLINED person while strengthening your CHARACTER”.
Ssshhhhhhhh. I am loving every bit of me. It’s all about the old, new, comfortable, confident, little wealthier, confidential, truthful, fit, horny, assholic, determined me & hell yes I am feeling every single day a productive day of my life.
