I have never said http://blog.eppohan2.com/?p=2609 I was perfect. Oh wait ai??i?? yeah I have.
Ok, I have never said I was better than anyone else. Ohai??i?? actually Iai??i??ve done that too.
How about this: when I said or implied either of the above things I was lying my ass off. Ok, there we go- that sounds about right.
Some people truly believe that because I am a trainer and pretty damn good at my job that I must always be perfect. While it is true that I do not drink, smoke or gamble, I am not exactly Amish either.
Truth be told I have some bad habits. And we all have bad habits. These habits are of course relative. I mean Iai??i??m sure what I deem a bad habit for me would still be an improvement for someone like Lindsay Lohan.
So just to prove I am as human as the next person, I have compiled a list of my current top 3 bad habits.
#3: I Love Peanut Butter
While that is very VERY true (mmmai??i??peanut butter), the more salient point here is I love to eat. I always have. Like many of us I am an emotional eater ai??i?? I cry when I eat. Just kidding, I mean that when I am under stress I tend to eat like I am a bottomless pit. I eat when I am happy, sad, bored or whatever. Again, like many, for much of my life I self medicated with food. Definitely a BAD habit. (Then how / why do I stay lean?)
#2: Iai??i??m one Lazy SOB
This might seem curious as I am a personal trainer after all. Itai??i??s true I am nothing if not complex. But the truth is I am as lazy as they come. An ideal Saturday for me is the aforementioned jar of peanut butter, a spoon and the remote. Left to my own devices my house would look like one of those disgusting trash heaps on that show Hoarders. Not because I hoard mind you, but because I am too damn lazy to pick up after myself. I think if my life had gone in another direction I would be one of those video game testers that never leaves the house and lives on Twinkies and Coke. Yeah, laziness is definitely a bad habit. (Then why do I workout 4 x week?)
and the number one bad habitai??i??.
I canai??i??t help it and certainly cannot explain it. When those damn kids start singing I just feel positively magical inside. Sadly, there is no disputing that when a 6ai??i??1ai???, 240lb man is singing ai???Defying Gravityai??? at the top of his lungs while driving down the street, his coolness rating is drastically diminished (if not obliterated). Unfortunately the picture to the right says it all. I have tried to stop, but I am helpless against the charms of those dorky yet determined teens struggling to be accepted for who they are http://lane24.no/?p=10971 in todayai??i??s society through the power of song. Helpless I say.
But here’s the thing ai??i?? although I love to eat (and overeat) I stay relatively lean. And even though I could not be more lazy I work out religiously. WHY?
I have priorities ai??i?? thatai??i??s why. And my drive to stay true to those priorities is far more powerful than any bad habit.
I was a fat kid because of #3 and #2 (which also explains #1), and when I got to college I decided I was done ai??i?? I had had enough. I did not like how overeating and being lazy made me look, and more importantly how it made me feel. That was when I made the change and improved my life. I made learning and getting healthy priority number one. I was so inspired I literally made it my lifeai??i??s work.
Nowadays my priorities have again shifted. As I head towards my 40ai??i??s, being healthy for the long haul is extremely important to me. I WILL be around to see my kids graduate high school and have kids of their own. The work I put in now is an investment in my future, and more specifically my future happiness as I will be around longer
to get back at my kids to spend time with my family.
I still have bad habits, I still have bouts of extreme laziness and the occasional semi-binge, but for the most part I am in control of my life and my health. (Unfortunately I do not think there is anything that can help my Glee obsession.)
Donai??i??t beat yourself up for your bad habits ai??i?? http://admiral-muslim.mhs.narotama.ac.id/2018/02/15/cannabis-seeds-best-shop/ that accomplishes nothing. Acknowledge them and come up with a plan to demolish them (or at least keep them under strict control). Determine what is important in your life and use it as your motivation for improvement.
If I can help, let me knowai??i??
