Hey everybody out there,

Welcome back yet again to another chapter of our “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you’ll learn something new every day about a topic with context and examples, and so will you today.

So without any ado, let’s get down to the business and see today’s context-


Robin weighted more than 100kgs which was way too much for a 20-year-old boy. He was continuously growing in size and weight which worried his parents about his health down the line.

When they took him to a doctor, the test results were quite normal. Seeing the reports, the doctor confirmed that he was absolutely normal and his overweight has nothing to do with any hormonal imbalance or any disease.

It was just because of the high consumption of junk foods and no physical activity.

Robin’s father, John, who was an ex-army man, seemed quite concerned about his son’s health. He knew exactly how adversely this overweight could affect his son’s life, so without wasting any further moment he directly went to a dietician and got a diet chart prepared for his son to follow.

Noticing a continuous increase in weight, the dietician strictly forbade Robin to eat any food that’s high in fat or with added artificial preservatives.

He was also advised to run 5km daily and work out as well, this way he will start losing some extra fat.

Running 5km was easier said than done, but if he wanted to carry on a normal, healthy life, he just had to do it.

It was tough at first, but as he got habituated to it, it became his second nature.

By the way, can you run 5km at once?

I know it’s easier said than done, especially if you are not running that frequently.

So by now, you must have got what this expression means, don’t you?

I am sure you must have understood till now, but for those who are still confused, it simply means that something is easy to say but very hard to do.
Example: It is easier said than done to complete the entire project work in a single day.

How did you find today’s chapter?

I hope it added some new vocabulary to your arsenal of active vocabulary which will be definitely useful in your daily life. Make sure you read this article thoroughly and practice it with your own examples so as they will become your second nature.

See you tomorrow with some new topic and vocabulary.

Till then keep learning and improving.

Take care and?
