People, especially women, ask me all the time if I have more energy when I am in good shape.

My first response is usually “no, I’m exhausted”.  When I am training hard, I am tired all the time and I get sick the most often.

But, now that I am finally starting to get into pretty good shape, I realized that I do have a ton of energy.

I’m just cranky.

When I am at work and the day is dragging, I get into the worst moods.  I feel lethargic, I don’t want to speak to anyone and I generally feel moody.

But as soon as I get out of the office, I feel supercharged.

After tomorrow, I would have completed 8 training sessions this week already.  That’s back to back sessions, 4x during the workweek.

I am also going to workout on Saturday and Sunday, for 10 sessions in one full week.

I also started taking the train for extra cardio, instead of the bus, and I noticed on my walking app, that I am up to 4.5 miles a day of just walking.

So, maybe I do have a ton of energy.

I have been training more.  I have been blogging more.

It’s a good time of year to be in shape!

For the life of me, I can not figure out why anyone does not workout.

On my blog I have spoken numerous times about the benefits of exercise and a proper diet and the fact that most Americans still don’t exercise is unbelievable.

Do you want to stay alive?

We are blessed living  in a relatively safe time period in U.S History.  Most of our basic human needs of food, water and shelter are met and our country hasn’t had a major war in over 30 years.

Once all your needs are met, you need to focus on being HEALTHY.

I am going to become a first time parent in several months and my wife and I are already planning out our workout routines.  For me, nothing much is going to change.  I work out Monday to Friday during my lunch and when I am cutting up, I will do my cardio workouts after work including the weekends.

My wife is either going to drop the baby off at her mother’s during the day for an hour or we will take our child to the gym with us at night (gym has babysitting).

I’m not worth much to my children If I die young and that’s why it is important for me to stay in shape.

That includes both cardio, diet and weight lifting for the rest of my life.

Enjoy your Sunday!
