Today is the last day of 2013. Many of you have big plans for tonight. You plan to eat well (and I don’t mean healthy, I mean healthy portions) and you might even have a bottle of champaign ready to be popped at midnight. In many ways, it’s like the last day of being single, or like a bachelor or bachelorette party – the last hurrah before tying the knot. Today is your last day to not worry about calories and to “play” before you put on the big fitness ball and chain.
While dieting and working out may not seem all that fun, it has serious rewards. The problem is, most people don’t treat the fitness lifestyle like a commitment. They treat it more like a date, only to be tossed aside when it no longer is fun or convenient.
2014: THE TIME TO MAKE A COMMITMENT
Listen, if you want to have a healthy body, you need to make fitness a commitment. It should be something you do on a regular basis whether you feel like it or not. Whether you can afford the type of workout you want or not. Whether you are going through good times or going through bad times. And, whether you are getting out of it what you feel you deserve. Fitness, like marriage, is a decision. You may not always love it, you may not always feel like sticking with it, and it may even let you down at times. However, if you do stick it out, fitness always pays off.
This year, decide to commit to fitness in a different way. This means you have to change your mindset. Your New Year’s Resolutions should be less about hopes and wishes and more about decisions and actions. It should be less about a desired dress size or weight, and more about your commitment to do what is best and healthy for your life. Fitness is a lifestyle, and the smaller dress size is the reward.
Make a list of how you plan to commit to your new healthy lifestyle in 2014 – for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, and in sickness and health (yes, there are still plenty of things you can do even if you are sick or have an injury) . Remember, you can’t divorce yourself, so you might as well commit to treating your body right – because you are stuck with it until “death do us part”! 🙂
