LIVING A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE April 15, 2008 crizlai I have been trying to trim down that fatty waist line of mine for ages but each time I have the urging nagging from the inner self to do so, I ended up giving excuses to start exercising the next day. Those yummy food projects that I am having now have always stopped me from exercising but will it save me from getting into more health related issues later? I always asked myself, “Why do I lack the enthusiasm?” Is it really that difficult for me to start doing some exercise? Although I am a workaholic, that should not be the main excuse. Isn’t this the same scenario in all of us here? There is always some sort of excuses for everything that is related to exercising. Is it the companionship? Is it the dread of getting sweaty and smelly all over the body? Is it the fear of tiring every muscle in the body and turning into a whimpering and exhausted weakling towards the end of the day and not able to continue with the never ending piles of workload? Later, I had the typical idea of slimming down through one of the best diet pill companies that my friend had recommended. Initially, everything went on smoothly until the temptation of all the delicious food crept their way unconsciously into my dreams. Temptation overruled the determination to get a slim and fit body. Days after days of postponing the diet programs ended up to years of ignorance. In the end, all turned into laziness, laziness and more laziness. Workouts were replaced with endless eat-outs. There is still tomorrow as I would always tell myself but it will never be a reality as tomorrow will never come as it will always be replaced by today. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
