A few interesting fitness reads for you…

One of the reasons I started this blog is because I love reading about health, nutrition and fitness… basically I spend hours on end trawling through related websites looking for new information and tips. Most of the time all this does is confuse me as there is such a wealth of contradicting information out there. However, it is also the reason I’m now a fountain of knowledge for a billion random fitness/diet facts (try me some time) and have decided to undertake a course in nutrition which I have been considering for some time.

Every once in a while I’ll pop a few of the pages which have caught my eye in to a post so I can share the love with you. Here’s what I stumbled across today:

You try to bend me

But you just break me

I’m always giving

Your always taking

I try to run

But you just hold me

Your hands are shaking

My heart is breaking

I cut this cord

You tie a knot

I thought I’m strong

I guess I’m not

So many reason but I forgot

Why was I leaving?

Why was I lost?

Why must everything about us come at a cost?

Why am I shaking?

Your heart is breaking

I try to break you

But you just bend

I’m always giving

Until the end

You stand so strong

I want to hurt you

Nothing left but to desert you

You cut the cord

I’m never free though

My eyes are crying

But I can see still

I hold on tight

You push away

I should let go

But I just stay
