I’m not going say too much as half past four in the morning is really unheard of for me, but I don’t feel tired. Strange time to get up !
I think it’s the amount of food I’m eating, I just keep getting excited to be able to do more things. So, obviously going to the gym this morning is going to be unusual for me at this time,but I’m going to do it and I’m going to get it out the way. So this means I can create much more of a nice long day for myself.
Getting up early when I was in my 20s or 30s even, it was just a joke. It was, like, “Why do people do that? your acting like a old lady who gets up at 4:00 in the morning?” Staying in bed till 11 and feel like an alien for the rest of the day, which pretty much happened for years. I used to get up sort of around 10:00, 11:00 in the morning, and that was normal, I thought, but it’s really not.
If you start to change your mindset, you’ll start to learn that life is really quite short, and you want to just cram in as much as you possibly can throughout your day. Because, I don’t know how to put it really, it’s like we’ve only got 24 hours to live every day. Some sadly don’t even get that choice. So we need to make sure that we put every effort in to make our day as powerful and strong and effective as possible because what’s the point?
That’s my issue here is, what’s the point if you don’t put hundred percent into your life? I don’t mean that in a nasty way, but I mean that in a positive way. How many people are wasting their lives on Facebook and Instagram and doing a TikTok or sleeping? We all need our sleep, and that’s really important, but i think about this a lot, it must be my strange brain. How many of us are actually not fulfilling our destiny? Not fulfilling our dreams? Not seeking out them dreams that you keep saying in your little mind going, “Oh, I wish I could do that. Wish I was that person. Wish I could have that motivation?”
Well, guess what? You can and you will, if you really want to, but you’ve got to overcome this pain of getting up in the morning. You’ve got to overcome the pain of the gym. You’ve got to overcome your limiting beliefs.
That’s where I learnt from the great man himself, my husband. It wasn’t actually Tony Robbins this time. My husband taught me that life is very short, even though my husband loves to sleep. But he was a very good bodybuilder, and he had 12 years of working out, training and using his coaching ability to be the best he could. He really did shape his body and his life. Now he’s relaxed, and he’s enjoying himself. So that’s where he finds his purpose is to relax, have holidays and enjoy life, when we get back to normal, that is.
But when there’s a lot of ladies who say to me, “I wish I was like you,” or “I wish I had the drive that you have,” “I wish I had the motivation that you have,” it’s not just given to people. You have to earn it and you have to work at it and you have to live it and breathe it for it to happen. Then you, too, will have that motivation and that drive to be the best you can be.
You don’t have to do this to prove anything to anyone. This is for you to feel better about yourself. When you look in the mirror, when you get up in the morning and you don’t feel sluggish. You feel better about food, not so emotionally attached to food. It becomes a object of necessity and to build your muscle and your health and vitality. It’s not for comfort and pleasure to eat as much cake as you possibly can in a day, and then feel utterly shite afterwards. Why are we doing this to ourselves, and what purpose is it gaining? Diabetes? Yes. Overweight, arthritis, pain in your knees, backache, lack of sleep, headaches. You know where I’m coming from here. So take the step yourself to guide yourself into a better you because nobody else is going to do it for you.
So today I’m going to the gym. I’m actually about to leave. I’ve got my protein shake, done that. Then I’m going to eat like a pig today, but all the good foods that are going to enhance my muscle and give me enough protein to repair my muscle. Hopefully, tonight I have my cheat day, which is a cheat day in my eyes is a small Chinese with a few noodles because that’s what I enjoy these days. I don’t want to pig out on cake, biscuits just because I can. There’s no point because it just undoes all the work that I’m putting in. But I do treat myself to nice things, so please never think that I’m one of these people that are boring.
Have a great day, everybody. Take care, and I’ll speak to you all soon
Gym completed – now about to eat a whole stack of protein…
Knees hate me today !
