How Badly Do You Want It?

by Vashte on January 16, 2012

Set your alarm for 5am. Don’t groan when it goes off and pull the covers over your head. GET UP and start your day.

Put on a baggy top and running shorts. Go downstairs and pour yourself a nice big glass of ice water. Cut up some fruit and mix it in with yogurt.

 Now go outside.

Stretch for 10 minutes. Skip for 5 minutes. Jog for 10 minutes. Run for 10 minutes. Walk back. Lay out a towel on the ground and lie down on it. Do 50 crunches. Yes, they hurt, but they are 100% worth it.

When you’re done, get in the shower. Use a nice smelling shampoo and matching conditioner. Shave your legs and wash your body. Exfoliate your face. Get out of the shower and let your hair air dry.

Look in the mirror. DO YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE? If you do….good for you.

Do this every day and you will continue to love yourself. If you don’t like what you see, do this EVERY DAY and pretty soon you WILL.

Being lazy might feel good at the time, but being active feels better in the long run.

HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT IT?

LIFE – Without your health you have NOTHING. Having all the money in the world but not having your health – is worthless. This life of ours is a blessing. Make each day count and kick start you’re EVERY DAY with movement! You just watch your energy sour like an eagle, and that body of yours change and respond to you taking control! One step at a time!

Hi Manisha. I like to keep things brief and to the point. There is a lot of fluff out there these days that is just not necessary. I DO like your website. You are very talented :)

Nice post Vaste,
I heartily agree that starting each day with some form of exercise is the way to go. Energy, health, body and mind all benefit enormously.
As each working day closes, it is also nice to have the satisfaction of knowing that I have already set aside the time to improve my health and well-being.

Indeed Darryl! And thank you for your post! Australia and the USA compete for the fattest nations in the world; it is a shame as we are also probably the most knowledgeable- or have access to much knowledge on health, fitness and nutrition. The Western world is getting lazier and lazier, wanting more and more handouts and quick fixes. As they just don’t exist – this leaves the door open for anyone else with a small amount of passion and drive to take whatever they like.
Exercise frees the mind body and soul, and releases those endorphins for that awesome high- as you well know! I see you are an iron man?! I checked your website – hats for to you for that!
