As I sit here writing this to you, I feel a sense of CALM envelop me on a hot, hot summer’s day (afternoon).
As I sit here after a solid workout, and not such a “solid” meal of rice and ah, but I’ll let you guess. 😉
Rice and soup, actually!
And yes, that sort of thing CAN be filling and how if you do it right.
Anyway, I feel like I’m “floating”.
If there was one thing I neglected over the past couple of days due to all the computer issues going on, it is my FITNESS routines.
Now don’t get me wrong.
I still did something.
Walking. Pull-ups. And so forth. But I did not do what I would do normally, which is to dedicate and set time apart for my workout (again, obvious reaons, without a working computer I cant get online and write to you, put out products and so forth).
Curiously enough, or maybe not, the last crash occurred while uploading my books to Lulu, another online book seller you may or may not have heard of.
We ARE all over the place.
But I’d rather you buy my books directly from the site, as it lessens the chances of me having to ‘depend” on the biggies or what not.
Obvious reasons again (and yes, I know, I keep saying that!).
Anyyyyyy way, where was I.
The obvious. Hehe. Or maybe not.
That calm, Zen like relaxed state where words just POUR out of me.
And aside from this:
I get the following from a workout done right – increased productivity for one (big time). More ENERGY (common sense).
Less flatulence and “bloat” (not that those issues happen any more to me, but they did at a certain stage).
A tendency to look at things differently than if I were to be irritated and cranky all damn day long (again, obvious, but you’d be amazed at how many people overlook this).
And that’s not even skimming the top of the iceberg (or the CONE I often buy my daughter, hehe).
And neither am I even getting into the physical benefits.
Believe me, I used to workout before, but it’s NOT any old workout that will give you these results.
It’s workouts done RIGHT that will.
Bodyweight training done RIGHT.
Back in the day, I lifted weights at home and did a few half hearted pushups or whatever.
But I didn’t get ANY of the above benefits.
My stomach problems kept increasing. I did NOT lose oodle of weight quick. And while I didn’t feel cranky and irritated after my routines, I’d feel exhausted.
Not buzzing with energy as I am now.
Probably the only gain was forearm strength, and my farmer’s walk (an exercise I highly, highly advocate) had a lot to do with that as opposed to the mindless curling and pumping (yeah, I have been there and done that! Hehe).
And so it goes, my friend.
Workout like you should.
The right way.
The 0 Excuses way.
There truly IS NO other better way!
