Guilty as charged

You are hereby charged with first degree of gross neglect to your body, not taking care of it so much so that for the past seven years allowing it to deteriorate from a 7 percent body fat level to the current level of four times over. How do you plead?

ME: Guilty as charged, your honor.

With that guilty plea recorded, we sentence you to a daily commute to work and back and long rides on weekend until you learn that it pays to keep your body at its optimal level.

I was talking to my brother the other day during lunch and he says rather nonchalantly that he got gout. On his toes. Diagnosed three days before. It took me by surprise as he is quite young, in fact 9 years younger than me. That also explains why he was walking with a slight limp as he will find it difficult to push off from his toe.

It just shows how easy it is to neglect our body. The good life, good and rich foods and definitely lack of exercise makes it 'easier' to throw our body out of whack, out of balance. And to regain it back, is easier said than done. There will always be excuses after excuses after excuses...

Need to keep everything working in its optimal condition, eh? No two ways about that. Guess, I need to kick my own butt then.
