Everything is your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice. It’s a hard and cruel fact of life that you cannot maximize your health and wellness without having fitness in your life.
While yes, you can lose weight without exercise, the challenge is much easier when you choose to be fit. When you wake up with determination, you go to bed with satisfaction.
Weight loss success stories don’t require running a marathon, but exercise at a moderate intensity level should become a part of your routine. It may seem like a chore at first, but with persistence, eventually, fitness will be a part of your life – as routine as brushing your teeth. My definition of discipline is this…doing what you need to do when you need to do it, whether you want to or not.
Neglecting to exercise may not shorten your life, but it can definitely affect the quality of your life in later years. Find the workout routine that’s fun for you. Don’t act like a lazy bump on a log…create the vitality and energy you deserve in life. When you suck it up and get active, you’ll reap the rewards.
Life requires courage to give our best, keep going, not give up, let go, inspire others, find strength, give strength, keep our head up and stay resilient. Wellness is a way of life.
It’s a lifestyle you design to achieve your highest potential for well-being. Wellness is also a choice. It’s a decision you make to move toward your best health and the best health for your loved ones. Life is a long-term commitment. Don’t look for a short-term solution. Invest in yourself. Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.
Commitment is the degree to which we will inconvenience ourselves for something. To become healthy and fit we must commit. We have to face the fact that to be healthy can sometimes be downright inconvenient.
After all, is it convenient to drink eight glasses of water a day? It is convenient to get up early to be at that 6 a.m. exercise class? It is convenient to eat healthy when there are donuts at the office? No…No…No! But think about this, is it convenient to be sick? Is it convenient to go to the doctor?
Life is inconvenient…you choose how you would prefer to be inconvenienced in your life. Why not commit to your health and then enjoy its many benefits and rewards. Decide. Commit. Succeed. And remember, something will always be better than nothing.
Many of us have this constant battle between our love of food and not wanting to get fat. As we head into the holiday season with our Christmas parties and shopping and stress, we are faced with more food and less time.
Remember, it’s not about having time, it’s about making time. If you already have an exercise routine, try and stick with it. Let’s sleigh your workouts this holiday season and stay fit.
