Time to Pretend

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them-

In some ways learning how to be happy daily is a lot like learning how to ride a bike; there is a learning curve, and you are going to crash.

There is infinite wisdom, innocence of a child learning how to ride a bike, if we can pay attention long enough (stop taking videos – updating status …) and watch?!? Kids have the keen ability to show us what the true ‘secret’ to happiness is.  By kindly placing our adult baggage aside, witness ‘happiness’ as the little ones roll on … Believe in yourself (everyday) and Practice (everyday). A child learning how to ride a bike doesn’t know and quite frankly doesn’t care that there are a plethora of different pathways to achieve happiness: kissing a loved one in the morning, holding hands, meditation, mindfulness, spiritual awakening, whatever. A child simply wants you to experience what they are feeling in this moment; “I believe I can do this bike riding thing, I’m smiling and I am true to myself.”

Notes:

Believe in yourself this morning and Practice, everyday. Be well and have a great weekend.

Technology is a way of organizing the universe so that man doesn’t have to experience it-

According to our critically acclaimed research department here at CultFit HQ:  We are three days into January and already 98.4% of our dear albóndigas are over training.  Who Knows, maybe it’s part of a grand scheme of some sorts or another.

The pic below may be useful to you, a guide more or less.  For us it’s a placeholder and we are blaming it on our AADD.  Last year our posts were in essence all over the place covering a wide range of topics on any given day.

The Plan-

Some like to say “potato”, some like to say “potato”…Others like “Random” and we like to throw a wrench into the works and say “Variation”.  Our reasoning for doing this is actually quite simple. Research has shown that muscle groups adapt to a specific training stimulus in roughly three weeks and then plateau.  Basically- Everything works for about a month.  So understand this simple message today- You may be training for a marathon that takes place in July right at this very moment on the 3rd of January by running on a treadmill in a stale fitness center somewhere.  Why?

The Workout-

Ease into the day as best you know how followed by:

One Hour Swimming as best as you can

Notes:  A few readers asked about our annual year-end holiday blow out over the weekend.  Needless to say it was  a raging success and yes we have pics to prove it, ENJOY!!!

Here's the pic and yes it did happen!
