Returning to the scene of the crime….

Share This Post

This is about 50m from where I got married. A beautiful part the world Cabarita Beach. What a day yesterday was huh?

I ran along this beach for about 50 minutes and dived in to the ocean at the end, the cool water chilling me but feeling so incredibly refreshing and exhilarating. I got out, played a little cricket with Indy and then relaxed with a cold beer and some nice food with my beautiful wife and good friends from Burleigh. I don’t tell you this for any other reason than to remind you about the reasons for investing time in getting fit -Useful fitness that allows you to have fun and live life to the full.

In thinking about it there is more. Besides doing a bit of training for the upcoming Bridge to Brissie, there also this thought of –  ‘don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time’, if you know what I mean. Some of the foods I am eating now (that I am not in the perfect anymore) perhaps would be considered heavy on the calorie ‘deposit’ side. The run made me feel like I was withdrawing some of this ahead of time to give me the buffer I needed to keep the ledger even, so to speak. Call me crazy but aiming for balance in this way feels intuitively sensible.

I have spoken about this before but it bears repeating. Working out consistently and at times vigorously in a gym or a studio is great, but let’s not forget why we do it.  Enjoy the fruits of your hard work and do something cool with it folks.

Post a comment. I want to hear what you are doing with YOUR fitness!

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
