The Grind

Rise and shine
It’s 6 am and your arm can’t make it to the alarm clock before the voices in your head start telling you it’s too early, too dark and too cold to get out of bed.

Aching muscles lie still in rebellion, pretending not to hear you brain commanding them to move…

A legion of voices are shouting their unanimous permission for you to hit the snooze button and go back to dreamland…. But you didn’t ask their opinion.

The voice you have chosen to listen to is one of defiance, a voice that says there was a reason you set that alarm in the first place. So sit up, put your feet on the floor, and don’t look back because we’ve got work to do… Welcome to The Grind.

My friends think of me as a mixed martial arts ninja and I don't disagree with them. I live in Essex (UK) with my wife and dog Kingston, who eats more protein than I do.
