Just Start – And Never Give Up!
A friend reminded me of this today… Whatever your goals, you just have to START. Just get started.
When I was obese, with a BMI of 32.6, weighing 249 pounds (113 kilos), the thought of ever being under 12 stone (just 74 kilos) seemed utterly impossible. But I started, one step at a time, I exercised, ate an improved diet, quit the bad habits. It took many years, and I did yo-yo up and down over that time, but I never gave up hope or determination to achieve good health and a better body. In total, I lost 100 pounds of fat off my frame and got down to a BMI of 21.2, well under 12 stone.
When I first started my journey to fitness, a set of 10 regular push-ups was a max effort for me, I could barely do 10, and when I did it would hurt and I would ache the next day. In the last week, I’ve done well over 2000 push-ups and I have not been pushing myself hard, that’s just normal, I do that almost every week. I regularly do 400 or 500 as part of my workout several days per week, and my best effort to date was 1014 good form, wide-grip, push-ups in 59:56 seconds.
Whatever YOUR goal, JUST START, and never give up. If you never give up, you will eventually get that which you desire.
