Alarm goes off.

Damn it’s cold.

A little wet too.

Didn’t get enough sleep.

Let’s hit the snooze.

5 minutes later same story.

Ahh stuff it.

Today I’ll have a lie in.

Can’t be bothered.

That scene sound familiar?

If it does you’re not alone.

And I’m not here to lecture you about why you shouldn’t be like that.

Cause you know what?

I get it.

Just like Enrique sang in “I’m not in love”:

It’s just a phase I’ve been going through..

You don’t have to be in love with exercise!

Yes, I did say that.

And while I don’t think Enrique was singing about this

(probably was good ole Anna Kournakova or someone else at the time)

I don’t expect you to love it.

God knows right now I’m not totally in love with exercise either.

Sure, we’ve had some good times together, but it’s in a bit of rocky patch now.

Used to love it back when I was in my 20’s and had not much else to do.

The lonely exploits of being single when all you’re mates are married!

Doesn’t mean that I don’t do exercise now though.

Just like getting up and going to work probably wasn’t your idea of a perfect way to spend a Tuesday this morning.

It just has to be done.

Especially cause I don’t want to end up fat to be blunt.

And I know if I stopped working out, give it a few months and I’d be a balloon.

That’s why I do it.

So I give you permission to not love exercise.

Or the idea of getting it done.

But just cause you’re not in love with it that doesn’t mean you can just give it a miss.

You can’t just keep ignoring it and hoping it will go away.

Cause the only thing that happens then is your pants are going to get tighter and tighter and that tummy isn’t going to sort itself out.

It’s not going to cop that tip if you keep ignoring it.

Unlike the teenager who followed you around like a puppy dog back in the day who eventually worked out you weren’t interested and left you alone.

It doesn’t work like that unfortunately.

And just like a days work – it has to be done to pay your bills.

So pay your bills on the exercise front.

Show up.

Forget the snooze.

Just get it done.

Before you have time to think about it.

Just turn up.

Just get up to start with.

Put the money in the bank so-to-speak.

Build up the credit.

Sure you may not love it.

But you’ll sure appreciate it when it means you can have that extra slice of cake without guilt.

That extra glass of wine too.

It doesn’t have to be the best relationship you’ve ever had.

But it can still give you some good times.

What says you?

Maybe you know someone like that who can benefit from what I do here at DPM?

I appreciate you forwarding them this email and getting them to click here:


And like I’ve mentioned,

I’ll hook you up with some cool DPM workout freebies just for getting them along (1 friend is a singlet, 2 friends is a t-shirt and 3 friends is a hoodie).

Plus there’s a pretty cool extra bonus in it for you both when they’ve been around for 6 months.

You may remember me mentioning it before.

Thanks for spreading the word!

See you soon.
