I’m about Day 4 into an intense diet and exercise plan… which means i’m completely zapped of energy. Yesterday I was so lethargic I could barely function.
It’s my body reprogramming itself to get used to this new reality.
But I’m gonna keep going with it, cuz I know to see the results i want it’s going to take work this summer.
I’m keeping under 2100 calories a day and under 60 grams of fat per day, and doing so with a ROBuST workout program where I’m trying to do the program 5 days a week. I’m both very sore, and very tired. It’s cutting into my writing for the moment.
But that’s okay! Like anything in life — you have to go through hard work and pain if you want to come out the other side a winner.
There’s no way around it.
If you sit around and take the easy path you will lose and be stuck.
So embrace pain, embrace work, and you’ll better your lives.
