Fitness …A Long Slow Distance

Do you ever wake up in the morning and not like what you see in the mirror? Or you just don’t like how you feel? Well I’m here to tell you that there’s an upside to that self loathing feeling you’ve been having. First of all, let’s keep in mind that you were not designed to be unhealthy. The first giant step you’ve taken is realising its becoming or has become a problem. The next step is to determine a course of action to counter this problem. So true is the saying “No condition is permanent” therefore you can breathe a sigh of relief that your predicament is reversible.

Did you know that you can actually design your body? Body builders actually believe that their bodies are shapeless and without form until they’ve shaped and sculpted every single muscle .Believe me, I used to be a body builder. We do what it takes to get that close to perfect result. Chiselling away every ounce of fat, surrounding that lean muscle mass, in order to reveal its beautiful lines and vascularity, we keep ourselves accountable for every calorie taken, and not in the least compromising on our highly intense workouts. You simple have to adopt the same mentally when it comes to designing that body that you desire. Whether you want to be Lepa-to-bad or Ice’s Coco, there are certain health and nutritional rules you’ve got to follow.

First things first, if you are not a self motivated person, then get a trainer or a partner that has similar or same goals as yours. Second, you have to learn to make certain sacrifices when it comes to your diet (that includes bad habits like drinking too much, smoking stuff, junk food, recreational drugs…) that’s for those of you that believe that they are part of the food groups. And third, commit a minimum of three hours a week to working out. You can start slowly by walking, then eventually joining an aerobics class, after that add a little low impact weight lifting, targeting 2 muscle groups every day of the three days you work out.

Set a schedule for yourself and change it up every week, you don’t have to through yourself under the bus; you’ll just be setting yourself up to fail. Another reality you’ll have to accept is that all the work you are about to put in will reward you in peanuts. You’ve just got to keep in mind that it’s a long slow distance.
