On my way to my 6:00am Fitness Boot Camp session, I was thinking about how many clients would show up to class after the long Thanksgiving holiday break. It made me think about “committing” to a fitness (exercise) and health (diet and lifestyle) program and seriously taking the all-important steps in regard to changing your life.
When it comes to health and fitness, it’s way too easy to make excuses and continue to be lazy, not mindful of the big picture – your Wellness.
Those of us who have pledged to live a healthier life through regular exercise, eating a more balanced diet and making certain lifestyle changes know the investment in ourselves are paying off huge dividends. What’s that old saying, ” Nothing we don’t have to work hard for is really worth having.” A quick note for the less enlightened, once a health and fitness program becomes routine (like brushing your teeth in the morning), even though it is indeed work, it doesn’t really seem like it because the results we see and feel are our motivation and it becomes something we crave, simply because it makes us feel and yes… look so good!
If you are like most people, chances are you’ve let yet another year pass you by, in regard to improving your health and fitness. Well folks fortunately in most cases, it’s never too late to start moving in a healthier direction before years end.
There’s really no need to continue your bad habits and say, well I’ll start first thing in the New Year. Try again, I’ve heard that one a million times! It’s that exact thinking that got you in such poor shape in the first place and it’s that exact mind set that let another year pass you by. The time is now! Start today. Why not?
