I always seem to do my deepest thinking when I am at the gym, not sure why, but I do. Here are a few of those thoughts I have had in the last couple days.
1) The gym is not a place for perfect people to show off how perfect they are, a real gym is a place where ordinary people come and put their courage on display. Overcoming obstacles, having faith to make a change in spite of what they see or feel at the moment.
2) You cant force your body to lose weight, so many pounds by such and such a date, no more than you can “order” your body to heal itself from some disease by a certain time. its good to have goals but your body works on its own clock. At a hospital, they create the environment for your body to heal itself and thats all (removing the problem and let your body do the rest). All I can do is create the environment for my body by nutrition and exercise then let the body respond by working its magic. Anything more than that and your body will fight you. I think this maybe how yo-yo’ing happens. Starvation, loss then rapid weight gain etc…….
my only responsibility is to set the stage, learn what works and what does not and then….let the healing begin.
Just food for thought.
