“Dave, it’s time to get into fightin’ shape.”
“OK, let’s do this! But you know that in 10 months, we’re going to be out of shape again.”
“Whatever, who cares.”
Fitness is cyclical, unless you do it for a living. This is what I’ve come to understand and accept over the years. Just like the seasons, we ebb and flow with our fitness goals, our weight, our diets. I believe a lot of this is rooted in deep socio-cultural caveman behavior — or maybe I use that as an excuse to eat more salt and fat in the winter. Again, whatever.
What I’m trying to get at is this: don’t give up just because you are out of shape right now. We’ve all been there.
For now, I’m going to watch “Rocky,” tune up my playlist and make a plan. I’ll see you in the ring at the end of the summer. — Amie
