“Life is a rollercoaster, just gotta ride it” by Ronan Keating. This song will perfectly describe my life in the past one year. I would personally like to apologise to all my readers whom I was not able to reach out to through my words and experiences. I had alot on my plate friends, hence writing had to be placed on the back burner for a while. Considering myself to be a strong believer of the phrase, “practice what you preach” I did not want to “preach” about fitness and health when I myself had slipped off my game. But just like the sinusoidal wave, my life right now is hovering around the crest region. Which is pretty darn better than a straight horizontal line 🙂
Alright enough of the Math and lets catch up a little bit! Assuming that most of you guys have been more disciplined than I have been this past year, I shall begin my rant by saying that “I am back, people!”. I upped my fitness game this time around. 2009 sculpted my body into the best shape I could ever have. Disaster struck and 2010 undid 2009! But guess what 2011 is going to put me back where I was and even higher this time. So what is different that I am doing this time around? Nothing! For all you procrastinators out there, there is no magic potion or mantra to physical fitness. “Get back on the damn treadmill to lose those muffin tops!” is what you have to do. There is no way around it. Sweat and hard-work is the only answer.
So you must be wondering that if this article is not going to provide me any new ideas, then why am I wasting my precious time reading it. That is simply because somewhere in this article you may find yourself and your life. We all go through tough times which takes our attention away from our beautiful self. We do not realize that in the process we are being highly unfair. This article is to awaken your inner-self and lift up your spirits, so that you can get off that couch and unveil your inner beauty and get back the confidence you once used to have. You deserve it! Love thyself first!
I will keep this “come back” article short and sweet and will begin inundating you with kool fitness ideas very soon. Be on the look out!
