Workouts become far less fun as you age, regardless of what you see in TV commercials.
TV commercials, by design, make workouts seem fun and vibrant and glorious, but truth is when alone, not getting paid to workout or be in shape, when a lone and working out, it's not that glorious actually, and can even seem like self punishment.
On TV commercials, the results are near instant, with music, sparkly lights, and definite results.
But when working out alone, in a basement or bedroom, there's none of that...maybe music that you play on your own. And unlike on TV, 5 minutes on treadmill at home can seem like 5 hours, it's like time just stops, the discomfort doesn't, but time seems to.
And still no 'results', you tell yourself.
In real life, results take weeks, months, even years of consistent habits, not one day here, one day there.
Mood workouts will get you no where, other than through whatever mood you're in.
The following posts will get us through some of those moods together.
70% of where use to be a year ago, as far as fitness goes
I've really fallen, as far as fitness goes, I mean I'm still 'good', and fit, as far as the average person is concerned, but as far as measuring self against self, I've fallen a bit, and it's only during this long 'time out' from a job, that notice it.
So I'm taking this time off to get myself back up to physical speed, cause in order to be good to self, I need to be healthy, being healthy makes dealing with everything else easier.
Alcohol is out to, but realize now can't drown self in coffee or could be just as bad or deadly.
To much caffeine stressed the heart just like to much alcohol weakens it.
Oh well, got one more set of curls, and shoulder set to do, then I can relax.
