Now that you read my last blog "More Than Muscle" let’s talk about a subject/topic also relatable. "Making Excuses."


Mentally

Excuses can effect you from forward progress. As a matter of fact, accepting that excuse leads to acceptance of another and another. What you are doing here is, creating a situation that becomes common and concrete. This makes it almost impossible to change once the excuses start piling up.


Here are some examples of excuses.


  1. I can’t because I don’t have time.

  2. I’ll start next month.

  3. I’m too tired.


Physically

As the excuses pile up, you become lazy and more out of shape. This ultimately leads to major challenges when introducing exercise.

subsequently this can cause major injuries even activate or reactivate a condition or previous condition. Let me give you some advice.


Hints and Tips

  • Plan ahead of time what needs to be accomplished throughout the week.


  • Wake up 1 hour earlier to squeeze in time for a workout or exercise session.


  • Start preparing healthier meals and snacks that you can take with you to work.


  • Change your mindset and think positive whenever a negative thought appears.


  • Take your time, things that are done fast do not usually have the best results.



Do you have kids who watch cartoons. Maybe you don’t and enjoy watching cartoons anyway. Are you one of those people? I admit, there’s something about Saturday mornings still that give me a chance to channel my inner child given the opportunity to relax and watch cartoons. There’s a show called Ninjargo. A LEGO’s based show you probably heard of or probably even seen before. This show is about 4 kids who were chosen to inherit special abilities from there’s ancestors. Sort of like "The Mighty Morphing Power Rangers." Well, sometimes these young teenage lego kids with extreme power would procrastinate. Like most ninjas/students, they had a teacher. His name was "Sensei Wu." Sensei Wu would always respond to his 4 students whom would often procrastinate with a quote of his. This quote not only applied to his 4 students but, to many of us who make excuses daily that unfortunately guides us to procrastination. Without further ado this is what Sensei Wu would say.


"Sensei Wu."

I believe this to be true. I’m sure most, if not all of you who are reading this, would agree. Why should we put off until tomorrow when we could do it today. Sure I get it, time is fast and we are always on the go. If we could buy time, as a society we wouldn’t hesitate to empty out our wallets. This reality should not keep us from accomplishing our tasks and goals that will advance us to a better life. We must harness and overcome these excuses. Buckle down and rearrange our schedule. Time manage and sacrifice. Your health is most important. Stop making excuses excuses today. Lead by example and start making a difference in every aspect of your life.

Health is more than muscle. It’s way more than meets the eye. We focus so much on the exterior portion of our bodies, that we forget the most important aspect. That aspect is, focusing on the internal portion of our bodies.

Have you ever heard the term "Health is Wealth”? Well, that’s a fact, and applying that to our lives means we care about our well being. In the grand scheme of things, it starts with us. So let’s dive right In.


 

EXTERIOR

Ever notice someone that you idolize? Chances are they have a nice body. Whether they are famous or not, people look up to those who have nice bodies and in fact, try to mimic the person they idolize. We do it all the time. Just because that person has a body like God or Goddess, doesn’t mean they are internally healthy. You would be absolutely shocked, what some people sacrifice to get that body.

It’s not all peaches keen ladies and gentleman. Things are not always what it seems. I suggest making achievable goals for yourself. Have fun creating, working, meeting the goals you set and then reaping the rewards of all your achievements. But, don’t stop there, set other goals. This cycle must continue.


 

I’ve noticed, It’s not really that you want that exact body you idolize so much. It’s more like, your just not exactly happy with yours. So let’s change that.



INTERIOR

Shift your focus on what’s more important. If I asked you this question. What’s more important and that you can only choose 1 out of the 2, would you choose your overall health, or a body like a God or Goddess? What will it be? I would hope you chose your overall health. You only have one life to live and you want to make the most of it. By controlling what you consume, along with putting forth the effort to become more accountable, will defiantly put you on the right track of achieving your internal health goals. Now let’s move on.

 

The Goal

Meeting your health goals matter more than anything. By doing so this will improve many variations of your life. These variations will bring fourth more:

  • Happiness

  • Energy

  • Better sleep

  • Overall confidence

  • Smarter decision making

  • Brain Function

  • Heart Health

  • Kidney Repair

  • Inflammation and Swelling

  • Blood Flow


 

There’s a long line of benefits and they are endless. By taking care of yourself you should also encourage your love ones to do the same. Both family and friends. Even people you work with daily, who seek a helping hand. Once everyone notices all the positive changes, they will come to you for advice. So be ready, as you will be bombarded with questions.



LASTLY

Say you do any form of exercise and don’t take the necessary steps it requires to become more healthy internally. You might as well stop. The goals that you seek weather it’s to look like a God or Goddess, or just to be overall healthy, will be a waste of your time. In order to see significant change, you must combine exercise with better eating habits.


The flip side of that is, if you eat better and change your eating habits. Without even exercising, you will notice change. I still encourage doing both exercising and eating right. The change is that much more when applying both. Take it step by step. There is more than muscle. Now go and work towards your better self and remember too
