What is your relationship with fitness? Is it like marriage or an unstable love affair? Do you love it when it’s easy and convenient or are you committed to it no matter what?
I think most people treat fitness like an on-again-off again boyfriend. When you get down and lonely, you run to your fitness friend but as soon as things get rough and complicated, you leave it faster than a toupee in a hurricane.
Fitness requires commitment. While it can be fun, it’s not something you do just for fun. It’s not something you do on only the good days or when you feel like it. It’s something you commit to doing no matter what. Like a job, you will have days you don’t want to show up. But, like a job, if you want the pay-off, you have to keep showing up.
