Have you ever lost something and felt the sting of this loss?
Maybe it was an emotional loss? Or a financial loss? Or something physical that had a lot of sentimental value for us?
It could also be something as simple as a flipper.
Like the one I lost boogie boarding yesterday.
I didn’t mean to lose it. But I had been out the day before and noticed the locals used flippers to build up more speed and catch the wave.
So I grabbed some flippers and headed out. The first wave I caught was pretty powerful and I could feel the wave tugging at my foot trying to pry the flipper away.
I was using my other foot to hold on to the half-off flipper to no avail. I felt the flipper release from my foot completely and it was gone.
I continued boogie boarding for a while and when I was finished I noticed my wife standing on the shore holding a flipper. Apparently a lady had found my flipper walked out of the ocean and handed it to my wife.
So what’s the moral of this story?
When you feel that something has happended that has put you off your path towards health, fitness and performance don’t despair.
Things usually have a way of working themselves out.
And if you ate too much chocolate over the weekend and need to see some ways to get exercise when you feel like you’ve lost all your forward momentum check out the following video where I show you how to to exercise with no gym or equipment.
I hope this video gave you a few ideas of what can be done with some space and some creativity. Don’t ever think all your efforts are lost because of a few changes in the overall plan. And you’ll find working with non-traditional equipment will be challenging and stimulate new gains.
Keep pushing forward,
