DO IT, DO IT NOW …

‘The universe rewards action not intention’ I stopped procrastinating, the commitment was made and I started doing my thing at the expensive gym nearest to my house. As luck would have it a new 24 hour budget chain gym complete with a large free weight area, 5 minutes from my house was  announced and would open in a couple of months.  ll It’s true, my approach at the start was a bit shaky, my attendence at the gym a bit sporadic. I wondered if anyone notice I didn’t exactly know what I was doing with the weights. I felt if I was going to make this really happen I needed someone who I could ask questions and get beginners advice from and maybe even train with on the odd occassion. Who better then the bodybuilder at work after all, he was the only bodybuilder I know. Advertisements

‘The goal had been set and I was very clear about what I want to achieve for the first time ever, so doing the action should be easy, right?!’ My mind was willing but the flesh was weak. The idea was to be in the gym on a regular basis working toward my bodybuilding dream and hitting weight loss goals left, right and centre. Instead I  was doing anything and everything except the things I really needed to do.
