Sanity over vanity………….
The best/most rewarding workouts (in my humble opinion) are not always the ones when you are all fired up, ‘in the zone’, & beating all your personal bests……
It’s the workouts you do on the days when you are tired, you can’t be arsed, you are stressed, you feel over worked (maybe under paid) your kids are acting up, your ex is giving you hassle, or you were awake with worry the night before, that can be the most rewarding….
Those days where you could have easily stopped & you were lucky to even have got started…..
But you DID… You were not beaten, you didn’t stop, you made it through….you faced it head on….& you didn’t back down.
You kept moving forward…….this is why you do it…
With age often comes responsibility…with responsibility often (not automatically) comes the potential for higher stress levels….
Your time becomes far more valuable…..am I right?
These workouts become much more than ‘losing weight’ or ‘toning up’…
- They become your expression.
- They become your freedom.
- They become your ‘me’ time.
- They become your release.
- They become much more about sanity & a lot less about vanity.
This is, of course, only my opinion….
Do you agree? Let me know…
Until the next time,
