When people look at someone who is self-disciplined, they tend to react in a shocked manner.
They are astonished because of this person’s capabilities and habits.
You could be this person.

Ha, yes! When people ask me how I work out to get the results that I have and I tell them, their eyes literally bug out a bit because they can’t imagine themselves doing it.
But the truth is, it’s easy. I like working out and I really like being stronger and feeling better. Not hard to hit the weights when those facts hold true. Should’ve started up again sooner, really, as it’s much easier and more fulfilling than I expected. It’s much preferable when someone’s not forcing you to over-train, as occurred in the army.
Sure, there are days where I am lazy or unmotivated. But not many and if I don’t work out I start feeling worse and that’s encouragement to get back on the bar and the bench.
