Welcome to the page! It has been a while since I wrote any content, but sometimes life just gets busy. But, I am back! I am feeling fit, some priorities have changed, and my weight training continues to be the best part of my day!
I want to share my reasons for respecting those people who stay fit. I have always thought this, but my wife recently shared this graphic with me, and I want to pass it on to you.
Let’s get started!
More Than Good Looks
A Status Symbol, Really?!
Yes, A status symbol. Having a good physique is a reflection on the person. Lots of things we have can be attained by many. I have a nice house, one that others have commented is a beautiful house. But lots of people could have purchased it when it was for sale. We just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
Is it a status symbol? Probably.
As is the car you drive. But again, lots of people have really nice cars.
We are often placed in a specific, distinct, segment of society based on the car we drive or the house we live in. They are definitely considered status symbols.
Money can buy these items. Money we work hard to have. Or we can inherit the money. Others may gain these status symbols by less honest means. The bottom line is, these items of status that can be purchased, can be purchased by almost anyone.
Physique – You Must Work Hard!
A person’s physical appearance, on the other hand, cannot be purchased or inherited, or even stolen.
If you want to look great, you…YOU…must put in the effort. Day after day, meal after meal, moment after moment. No one can do it for you. It is all up to you.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have either. You can have all the money in the world, buy all the weight lifting equipment you want, hire a personal trainer, buy all the supplements and good foods, but if you don’t use the equipment and follow the instructions of the personal trainer, and eat the proper foods, you will not have the physique you desire.
Desire is the key. You have to want to be fit more than anything else in your life. When you finally get sick and tired of being sick and tired, and you realize that the changes that need to be made come from within, then your physical change will begin.
Also, your physique status symbol is not a one-time event, like buying a car or a house.
You can only keep your physique with constant, hard work. You must be dedicated to fitness. Lifting weights needs to become a habit. Yes, a habit, and yes, lifting weights. Resistance training is one of the few ways to be fit and healthy for the long term. There may be other ways to initially get in shape, but resistance training with heavy weights will keep you strong and fit well into your senior years and beyond.
Of course, you also need to eat properly, and that is what this site is about. Keto (eating properly) and exercise (weight lifting).
So there you have it. I respect fit people because they are passionate about themselves and their health. They are patiently working toward the body they want, and they have a level of dignity and self-respect second to none.
How about you? Are you ready to dedicate your time to your own well-being?
Can you become disciplined enough to make eating right and exercising a priority for you and your family?
I think you can! Let’s do this together!
Thanks for listening, and I’ll see you in the next post.
