So, do YOU have a life?

This is an excerpt from Mehdi’s post. I just had to reproduce it because he’s written it so beautifully. And also, as I said in my earlier post, June is Men’s Health Month.

Read on…..

Aren’t you sick and tired of hearing know-it-alls say life is too short to go to the gym all the time? That you should “live a little”?

What the heck does that even mean, to “live a little”? Their lifestyle is better? Really? Let’s compare notes – how does the life of the average guy look like?

  1. Hits the snooze button everytime the alarm goes off
  2. Rolls in bed for 35 mins because he stayed up late once again
  3. Finally gets out of bed half asleep, stubbing his toe against the bedpost
  4. Skips breakfast and showering, rushes for work like the Tasmanian Devil
  5. Buys a doughnut and latte on his way to work, feels like crap all morning
  6. Stresses because there’s nothing healthy for lunch, ends up in Taco Hell
  7. Looks at his fat gut and man boobs in the bathroom mirror after lunch
  8. Decides to drink his depression away by going for happy hour again
  9. Goes home feeling slightly better and eats a frozen pizza for dinner
  10. Sees the trailer for Thor, thinking “Man, I wish I had a body like that”
  11. Goes to bed wishing he was “more motivated” to go to the gym
  12. Repeat

Guess what? Been there, done that. It’s that kind of lifestyle that turned me into a skinny-fat weakling who lost at armwrestling to a girl, who couldn’t even do a single Pushup and who was embarrassed to take his shirt off at the pool.

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
