I spent the last 5 days just me and my boy.
(Wife and Daughter are on an all-girls vacation)
I learned a lot in 5 days.
Most importantly I learned that time moves incredibly quickly. My little guy is growing up FAST! As a wise old lady at a grocery store once told my wife (in reference to our kids) “Honey, the days may seem long, but the years are short”….how true.
I turn 34 years this year, so I think it’s safe to say I’m having a bit of a quarter life crisis (What? how long do you expect to live?)
Here’s the crisis –> Life happens quickly, and where you are at right now…this is it – so enjoy it.
Now here is where my quarterlife crisis applies to health and fitness.
Life is too short to be overweight.
Seriously, I know this sounds shallow, but I believe it’s true.
Something about feeling fit, not worrying about the health of your body and looking the way you want to look is incredibly rewarding.
And time goes by quickly, so if you’ve been waiting to get in shape…WHY? It doesn’t matter if you are 25 or 95…Life is too short to not look the way you want to look.
Plus, if you are out of shape but thinking about getting into shape chances are this means you are surfing the net looking for nutrition and weight loss advice. Do this too often and you end up as one of those people obsessed with reading complex theories and arguments on weight loss, rather than finding a solution and getting on with it.
And you know how I feel about obsessing about nutrition (hate it). The LAST thing I wish upon anyone is to not have the body you want AND spend countless hours reading about crazy nutrition theories on-line…life is WAY to short to waste on that kind of nonsense.
So please, if you are waiting, planning, and organizing to finally lose weight and get the body you want. Stop. Life is too short. Just get it done.
Life is too short to spend any more time than you absolutely have to in a body you don’t like.
And it’s not as complicated as you may think. Sure, it takes effort, consistency and the fortitude to stick with it.
( I’ve never met anyone who’s transformed their body in a month – so plan to be at it for a while.)
But it’s worth it. It really is.
PS- from my experience, the longer you are lean, the easier it becomes to stay lean. <– consider this the light at the end of the weight loss tunnel.
