365, 52, 7, 24 & 1 the numbers standing alone really means nothing to us, its all just a bunch of #. But when you start breaking it down. 365 days in a year, 52 weeks in a that year, 7 days in each of those weeks, 24 hours per day & 1 life time. This is all the time we are allowed.
We need to start understanding that time is going to pass by regardless of what we do and say. We are limited with the time we have and need to make the best of it some how.
With that being said it’s all about our time management skills, and the balancing act. Between work, workouts, social life, spouse, kids, rest, stress and just everyday s*%#. We need to place things in prospective & prioritize our lives accordingly. As I have been slowly getting into the groove of working out on a daily bases, I am starting to see what the meaning of the word sacrifice really means. The Webster dictionary defines it as such:
Noun• an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy.
Verb• give up (something important or valued) for the sake of other considerations
I have tried to make adjustments for the better, changing things from preparing a majority of my own meals, drinking a minimum of a gallon of water a day (some days I do fall short), and daily exercise no matter how short of time it may be. I am trying to break into these things consistently so that it will become a routine (a daily habit). They say that it takes 21 consecutive days to make anything a habit (no matter if good or bad). We have made all the other things that have plagued our health and us a habit for so long & now its time to change reset and establish new and great habits. No matter your goals, try by starting with consistently strength training, trying to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night, and by frequently eating healthy well balanced meals *(eating every 2.5 to 3.5 hours) this will maintain an even supply of energy. Sometimes we can overemphasize about these things, but it’s much easier to pull off than you may think. Just understanding the basics and getting into a grove can and will establish a routine that will create a habit.
Love Yourself as God loves you,
Live Love Train.
