I hope that this entry finds you well and having a great week. In this entry, I want to talk about something that may be considered unpopular. I know in this day in age we all want results and we want it now. 5-minute abs, liposuction, you name it. What I’m going to talk about in this entry is good old-fashioned putting in the work.

Where did we lose our way in our society? With all the technological advances we have become faster and more efficient in each industry. Along the same line, we feel the same way about our bodies. We want results and we want it fast. Well I’m sorry to burst your bubble doesn’t work that way. I don’t care how much money you have or how important you think you are, at the end of the day you got to put in the work you can’t buy a good body, you can’t find one on the internet, you have to old-fashioned put in the work.

Somehow this thought process has become unpopular. Possibly it’s because of all these images that we see on the internet, Instagram, or even on TV with the Kardashians. Not exactly sure where we lost that good old-fashioned puritan work ethic, but ask anybody who has gotten him/herself in great shape and they’ll tell you it’s all about putting in the work.

So my friends I hope you have a great rest of the week, and If I could say anything of value to you in this entry it is just put your nose to the grindstone and put in the work. All my best.
