Dangerous Laziness

Over the years TFP has changed lives. But creating different or completing a new goal, no matter how big doesn’t mean you can get lazy with your behaviors. The confidence created in completion can be very dangerous. Many TFPers have created something new and gradually allowing more and more damaging behaviors can have you right back to where you were, plus or minus.

All the little things add up to a lifestyle, a body and health status. How are your behaviors with drinking alcohol, drinking water, eating quality food, allowing cheat foods, working out regularly, supplementing, taking your vitamins, sleeping, doing your weights, stretching, massage, etc. All of these do have a range of ok but if many of them slide to the risky level side the injuries, illnesses and even disease pop up. Make sure you aren’t lazy and are keeping your behaviors in check to have the lifestyle you want.
