I was doing the ironing the other day.

You know a blog is going to be good when it starts like that, don’t you?

My youngest son Charlie asked to watch something.

He usually wants to watch YouTube on his mum’s phone.

Which bothers me when he holds it about an inch from his face.

I know it’s no different to watching TV really, but I don’t like it.

So I said he could watch the TV and put Scooby Doo on.

It was nearing the end of the episode.

Where the gang were figuring out who dunnit.

As usually happens, Daphne was explaining her deductions.

There was the standard costumed figure (let’s call that X, mainly because I didn’t catch the name).

And an old man (who we’ll call Y).

“Have you ever noticed you never see X and Y together at the same time?” Daphne asked.

And, you guessed it, she was right.

Often how they figure out what’s happened isn’t it?

X and Y not been seen together doesn’t automatically mean they are the same thing, of course.

Or that there’s some connection between the two.

But them being seen together probably means there isn’t a connection.

Like you never see weight gain or maintenance and a calorie deficit together.

We might feel we do sometimes, sure.

But it’s those other ‘characters’ confusing us.

Until it happens in controlled, test circumstances, it’s safe to assume they aren’t seen together.

Same with how you don’t see lasting changes to people’s body and energy levels without some sort of change to the mindsets and ways of thinking that underpin that.

Just “trying again” with the same thoughts behind it is like jamming the accelerator down………

While the handbrake is still on.

And I’ve not seen lasting continued improvements to fitness……..

Without people finding a form of exercise that they find sufficiently enjoyable (or, at least, tolerable).

Much love,
