As we get older, one of the hardest things to do is stay in shape. It feels like every article you read emphasizes a different thing… “you are what you eat”, “just burn it off” “The balance between cardio and weight lifting”… the list goes on and on. While I was jogging I was thinking about all of that and what I ate earlier in the day. As I was jogging so was my mind. Then I asked myself, “Why am I doing this?” Well to stay healthy obviously. “Well I’m working out everyday, going hard, eating decent… why don’t I look like a Swedish underwear model?” Then the next thought I have is what kind of beer am I drinking tonight? There it is… maybe if I stop drinking 5 beers and smashing a burger after I workout I would look how I think I should. Oh well, life is all about balance. I like beers and burgers. I guess I will continue to workout to just stay the way I am so I can continue drinking beers. Alright with that! Motivation!
Was planning on being very dedicated to the diet this week. Yeah right, get this guy a beer. 2 for 1 Cervezas on draft, gotta hydrate for the gym later. Life is all about balance.
