My Daily Observation: 12/20/17


I don’t like working out like I did when I was younger.  I have less energy, less strength and it takes longer to burn fat; or at least it seems it does.  But the one thing I am better at now is discipline and discipline is definitely necessary when it comes to exercising.

Discipline is the art of training oneself to do something in a controlled and habitual way.  I think of discipline as doing something even when you don’t want to do it.  It isn’t easy to make yourself exercise when you body and mind are saying “don’t”.

I think discipline is something that can be developed through practice and I also believe discipline is what differentiates those who achieve great things from those who do not.  I’m not the best at it, but I’m getting better at it.

  1. I saw a comedy special the other night with my husband and yes one of the topics was fat people. Is the link to the segment if you are interested but what I never heard or thought about before was it takes no effort to be lazy. To be healthy it takes work, you have to work out daily, eat healthy and to not give into the peer pressures of lying on the couch watching your favorite show all day shoveling junk down your throat. That as much as we complain about hollywood and their perfect image, which I can agree with. But people who look good on television we never stop to think about did they actually spend the time to get in shape for that film they did or to model etc. We forget that is work. Maybe they are over paid for it or whatever, but no they did the work to look that way. I am not talking about the anorexia barbie dolls etc, I am talking about the image to look healthy and good. It does take discipline. I myself just started being dedicated to working out every day, eating healthier and soon would like to be able to go to a gym but just started like a couple years ago. I waited too long I feel. I was a chubby teen and into my twenties and a lot of it was little things, the lack of motivation, exercise, the sugar I put in my tea or coffee everyday. When I cut out white sugar I lost a lot of weight. I have cheated this diet and new exercise routine a couple times since I won’t lie and got away from it for a week or so at a time. But have gone back to keeping a exercise routine and normally watch what I eat.

    The thing is sometimes it is little mistakes we make. I am not saying go out and get a personal trainer, eat kale everyday and what have you. Working out a half hour a day in your own home (Youtube google exercises that get your cardio up etc) and overall eating a well balanced diet. It will make a difference. You can still eat McDonalds if you so please and the odd chocolate bar or whatever but do it like once every 2-3 months. The issue with our society is we like think we should eat McDonalds once a week or worse everyday cause it’s convenient.

  2. Good! I think that you will find that once the working out become “habitual” you will not find it hard to do at all. You will feel better working out on a regular basis and will miss it when you don’t. At least that is what I have found.
