|Lou Ferrigno discusses the importance of a balanced lifestyle at the Las Vegas Comic Expo|
Part of my enlightenment to take better care of myself came from Mr. Ferrigno's inspiring talking on how he went from a scrawny kid to one day being The Incredible Hulk. During the panel he talked about the importance of exercise, but that eating healthy and getting plenty of rest all needed to be part of a balanced lifestyle.
It was cool to see him once again stressing the importance of being healthy on the premiere episode of Comic Book Men, in which, Kevin Smith hires Lou to train Kevin's friend and fellow Comic Book Man, Bryan Johnson.
I can relate to the unhealthy lifestyle that Bryan had adopted in just a few short years and how quickly things can get out of hand in such a short amount of time. Bryan did agree to the 2 day training session, but seemed to be ready to go right back to his schlep of a lifestyle after.
Getting healthy does take some effort to retrain your habits, but once you do and stick with it, it soon becomes effortless. You just have to stick with it. It takes time to make a habit.
So, those who wrote in and told me you needed to do it too, did you? Those who wrote in and told me you were on it already, are you still? If you haven't made the jump to light speed and began the path to a refined you, why haven't you? Time, don't care, not worth it? What would it take to get you motivated?
