Staying physically fit takes determination! Nothing is more important than deciding to follow a fitness plan. Around the holidays, many of us make New Year's resolutions to be fit and healthy, but I'm here to tell you that every day is the time to make a New Year's resolution for health and fitness. While we often blame external circumstances for our poor health (e.g., office candy, fast food, "vacation"), in reality, our own procrastination is the real barrier to achieving our fitness goals. Physical conditioning.
How many times have we told ourselves, "Someday I'll fit in that dress" or "Eventually I'll be back to my college weight"? Time and time again we postpone our health and fitness resolutions to a future date. It's time to stop this incessant procrastination, because in the end all we do is have an eternal desire... to want without end. Resolve to make these dreams a reality. The time of procrastination is over. As Shakespeare says, "Do not delay time; delays serve dangerous purposes."
The secret to healthy living is based on realizing that tomorrow never comes! Our tomorrow is nothing more than the consequences of the decisions we make today. When we think about it, it becomes clear that today is all we have. The past no longer exists. The future is yet to come. The present is all there is! Therefore, the person you want to be in the future will not come into existence until the person you really are is determined to do something…NOW. Once again, every day is a health and fitness resolution!
Reaching your long-term fitness goals requires a commitment. There are no short cuts! What this means varies from person to person. The best way to maximize your time and effort is to work with a personal trainer. He or she will help you determine which exercises and diet are best for your physical condition and life situation. It's much easier to reach your fitness goals if you have a daily plan that outlines how to get there.
Despite the many gimmicks, fad diets, and fancy training plans, achieving your optimal health and fitness goals is fairly easy. It requires two ingredients; 1) an exercise plan that suits your body type and goals, 2) your determination and determination to follow this plan every day! I'm not saying you should train every day, it's the mindset you want to have. Armed with this double attack, the physical aptitude will lose its elusive and mysterious quality. Diet and exercise plans are available. It is entirely possible to find a program that works for you. The real question to ask yourself is this; "Do I have the grit and determination to work towards my goals every day?" Do I sincerely want every day to be a health and fitness resolution?
The great secret to happiness in life is realizing that today is all we have. The seeds of the future are present in the small decisions you make today. Every day is an opportunity and an invitation for you to become the new and improved you. Do you want to be healthier? Do you want to increase your fitness? So resolve today and every day to do what it takes! Make every day a health and fitness resolution.
You can do it! You really can be the person you want to be. It all depends on how much you want it. It is this desire, not this decision, that will make your fitness goals come true!
