I Am An Iron Man
I just couldn’t help myself, Jeff shared this video with me several weeks ago and I thought it appropriate to share with all of you H3 blog readers. At first, the video may trigger a few LOL’s (laughs out loud according to techno lingo), but in addition to the chuckles there resides a huge subliminal message.
Please note (DISCLAIMER): I apologize as the video itself contains profanity; therefore if you may be offended, please decline viewing.
If you are to view the video, I feel it speaks volumes to all individuals who are engaging in any type of training. Whether training for an iron man or better health, the revelation is balance.
So, what does balance mean to you? Are you so strictly driven in your regiments that you have no time to enjoy life? Are you eliminating your social life in efforts to become fit? Is the lack of social life and or social interaction contributing positively or negatively to your overall happiness? Is the lack of overall happiness harmful to your health? These are all questions we as fitness coinsures should be asking ourselves. Are we allowing a balance between work, fitness, family and friends? Even deeper, are we allowing room for balance within our own fitness regiments? (i.e. are we switching up our regiments by adding variety or are we simply staying rigid and blasé?). Remember, too much of anything is not good. As Bob would say “everything in moderation.” Let this video be a simple reminder to balance your wellbeing.
