Staying on the Road to Perfection















It appears that my body weight is dropping down slowly since I incorporated cardio back into my routine and despite the fact that I am hungry for those body building workouts each day I will stay on a steady course of doing both. After finally getting past those feeling of jet lag and also getting our food supply back on track I feel that each day I will be making the right choices when it comes to food. I am getting a little tired of these love handles that I managed to place back on my sides and I am wanting to see that six pack once again.

These things I want in my life like having close to perfect health and living with no debt take time and a whole lot of work, but it is these things that I know that I must achieve to have a good life to fight off disease and poverty. It is a struggle, but in this struggle so many valuable lessons are learned. The true meaning of self discipline must be practiced over and over again until a level of perfection is reached while limiting other pleasures like spending money foolishly or eating foods that are not healthy. I have to separate my wants from my needs and pursue to keep these things in balance. I have to find that path to those things I wish to achieve and learn to get past those stumbling blocks that get in my way at times. There is no such thing as perfection as we are all human and not machines, but the road that leads to getting remotely close to perfection is the road that I want to stay on. And all I can do is just Keep on Keeping on!
