In life, almost everything we do comes with a purpose.
Why do we eat?
Why do we cry?
Why do we get married?
Why do we have children?
Why do go to school?
Why do we work?
There's always a reason behind our actions.
"Tambah kurus lah kau ni, beryoga-yoga."
"Cukup-cukup lah pigi berlari tu, nanti tinggal kertas ja badan ko."
"Patutlah kau kurus. Pigi Zumba lah..futsal lah...jogging la...yoga lah..."
I am slender. I know.
My stomach is flat. I know.
My body fat is around 20%. Normal. I know.
But what YOU must know, I am blessed with all the above even without exercising. Thank you Lord!
So no, I don't exercise to get slimmer. It's my heart that matter the most. You know, that blood pumping organ on your left chest that ensure you to stay alive. Well, technically it's about in the middle of your chest.
Now, why do I put effort in doing all these muscle-stretching routines?
Well, besides the general reason of taking care of the heart... it's the surge of adrenalin rush that makes me feel on top of the world, seeing sweat roll down my forehead and all over my body. The blood that pumped into all my body system making every sensor in me wide awake.Not forgetting the euphoric feeling when I can do things beyond my own expectation. i.e. do a headstand and hold for 30 long seconds!!
Don't get it?
I couldn't care less to explain more.
Go find yourself a time to exercise and find that experience I mentioned above.
So the next time you tell me that I do not have to exercise cos I am already a lean meat, be prepare to get this...
"Ya, kalau orang gemuk mau exercise tapi tu hati tidak bersih, sama juga tu tidak pandai kurus."
That is, if you understand what sarcasm is.
