Straight from a classic Seinfeld episode and the words of wisdom from none other than the great George Costanza:
“Jerry, just remember it’s not a lie if you believe it”
I can still watch these shows endlessly no matter how many times I’ve seen them previously.
And George’s quote above is something that has a pretty big relevance to where we often sit in our own situations.
Especially with our kids!
How about when they can look you dead in the eye and convince you that they haven’t done something despite the fact you saw it with your own two eyes.
That is indeed why they invented wine I’ve come to realise…
And if Seinfeld was still running today, after Jerry and the gang all having kids, the themes would be exactly the same I’m sure!
But it also runs true for us at times wouldn’t you agree?
You know what I mean, where there’s something that’s a problem and even though you know it deep down, you pretend that it’s all good and rosy?
Hoping that it will go away if you ignore it.
Personally, I know that’s why I had a couple of weeks off the drink a few weeks ago and tightened things up food wise.
I wanted to break the cycle like I mentioned the other week and felt a lot better for it.
But the other factor I finally confronted was that I’d put on a couple of kilos.
I could feel it.
Told myself I’d have a couple of weeks alcohol free and step up the workouts but kept putting it off.
There was always an excuse that got in the way.
Yes it can happen to me as it can to you. We’re both human.
But I finally called BS on my Georgeisms.
Confronted the truth.
That it was time.
And did something about it.
The biggest lie we tell ourselves normally goes along the lines of “I don’t have time to exercise”.
And that life gets in the way of your best plans.
That to me can run true sometimes.
BUT not all the time.
Wouldn’t you agree?
Cause some days I know it’s just not possible to get something in despite your best intentions.
And of course things get worse if that becomes a day after day habit.
The whole thing I want to get across today, apart from admitting, and overcoming, my own faults when it comes to too much food and drink, is that there is always hope.
And you don’t have to commit to endless hours of workouts with time you don’t have.
So long as you don’t buy into that Costanza way of thinking.
To help you out I’m putting the finishing touches on my first ever real book.
It’ll have 6 months worth of workouts that are short and sweet (I’m talking about less than 20 minutes) to prove that all of this is possible.
Plus it’ll include a couple of other things too.
If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, and would be interested in hearing more about, let me know.
I’ll give you the inside mail before I release more details to everyone in the coming weeks.
