Where is the six pack? There are many jokes on this issue. “six pack sealed in a pot belly”. pot-bellied men taking pics with six packs of beer or soda and tagging the photo as #MySixPack. They give us a good laugh.
I once had cubes -yes, those 3D ones and they were more than six. Those we swam with know this. Those we ran with around Njiru and Kayole know this. Those we trained boxing with in Dandora and Komorock know this. And a few that I knocked down after I let them spur with my abs.
As life got more involving I lost that balance and I joined the pot-bellied club. and how the pot sneaked onto my abs and before i knew it they had taken over! I purposed from last year to regain my balance on things. Many days ago I would do *keshas every Friday ( Ask Cosmas and Sylvanus). I would do bible study every Wednesday ( ask the Karuti, Peter & Mato now Pst. Mato). I would do morning devotion between 5:45am to 6:30am more than three times a week ( Ask Irungu and Peps) Read a book every month and I still had time for running every Saturday morning(ask Morio). I still had time to do errands, attend the demanding evening classes at Strathmore University and work full time.
I will not work in former glory for those who speak in history are old. I choose to speak in the present. from last year I have been going for lunch hour prayer meetings, I have been attending bible study many Thursdays, I do a *kesha every quarter and going to the gym more than three times every day between 5:45am-7:30am. I have been reading two books every quarter.
I joined the six pack in six month challenge in 26th February 2014. I know we are a week to the end of the challenge period. You might have guessed right. I do not have a six pack. I may be failing the challenge. I am glad I took it up. I have built stamina, agility, resistance, endurance and am swift. It has built a discipline into my working regime. it has taken me through many different different training regimes. I have done insanity classes with frank, Tae Bo with Esther, Aerobics with Edu, Zumba with Nick, Body Power with Evans, sit-ups, push-ups and laughter with Pendo.
It is a ball training now. Its shows alittle on the outside. I mean the triceps, biceps, squats and no more pot-belly! You should know how great I feel on the inside. I have a glow and its radiating on my outside. Regular Exercise and various training regimes build your power within and without – makes you feel great in the inside and look even better on the outside. I challenge you to take up regular exercise. Do not get trapped in the excuse of not having time or saying the gym is expensive. When you purpose you get it done.
*kesha – is night vigil prayers
