You have spent your life destroying your body.

I Absolutely loved the look of shock on her face…

“I’m not getting any better! I have been working really hard and doing everything you have told me to, but it’s just not working.”

Oh really? – I replied

“Yes!”

“So, for the past six weeks you have done the extra mobility pieces? You have done all the accessory work I have given you? And, you have made the couple of changes to your diet that I suggested?”

“Yes, yes, yes”

“Good. Now keep doing that. Keep doing all of that for the rest of your life.”

“Ha?”

Ever heard the phrase it’s never too late to start?

I read a number of comments on the most recent Bulletin I posted.

Comments that read,

“Definitely no lying... good, honest, truth!”

“Thank you for your truth and honesty”

“Truth”

Well here’s the truth…

You cannot fix your lifetime of poor nutrition and lack of exercise overnight. For some of you, you cannot fix it in 12 months, or even years.

But, you can fix it.

You have spent the last whatever years destroying your body, yet you want to fix it in a number of weeks with a bit of hard work. Think about a broken bone, let’s use your leg for this example. It takes only a second to cause a major fracture (basically an almost complete brake). And can take anywhere from three to six months to fully recover. That’s 7,776,000 seconds at best to recover from something which took only a second.

Funny, because you want to fix yourself in six weeks, except you have been ‘breaking’ yourself for the past however many thousands of weeks.  

Although the scenario is not quite exact, the point is very relevant.

Fixing what you have done to yourself, what society, the media or whatever has taught you is okay, until you actually decided to do your research and put quality time into your life, takes time.

A lot of time.

But hey, hopefully you have started.

I wish you all the best on your journey of a healthier, fitter you.

Health and fitness is a life long journey.

Push on and enjoy every moment.
