I was at the post office the other day filling out a form & temporarily forgot the date so I asked around and when the answer came back, it just kinda hit me.
Whoa.. It's already mid September?
Then I realized this is the time of year when we all start to wonder where 2009 went.
Doesn't it always seem like the year went by a lot faster than you thought?
There are only three months before 2010. The year is turning the corner, going from summer to fall and the Holidays are just around the corner.
Not much time left.
I have a couple of questions for you:
How are things working out for you? ** Are you better, leaner fitter and stronger than you were when the year started?
If the answer is no, don't wait for January to make a resolution.
This is the perfect time to "right the ship". Let me give you the secret to getting into the best shape of your life.
Consistency is the mother of results.
Look at your life and you will realize that everything you have accomplished is due to consistency. You showed up, made the effort paid the price in sweat and maybe tears, but you made the effort almost every day.
Good news, your body loves consistency & it rewards you for it.
Consider this - A pair of identical twins with identical bodies & metabolisms. One of them runs a marathon (~26 miles) in a day and then proceeds to just sit on his behind.
The other twin runs 1 mile every day for 26 days.
Which of the two would be leaner, in better shape & would lose more weight?
Put your money on the consistent twin, who was consistent by running every day. This is not hearsay, science has proven this.
I know we all want results today. Everyday you will find people next to the microwave shouting "Hurry Up!"
But your body cannot be fooled. You cannot tell it to hurry up with losing weight. It's designed to survive extremes but it will yield to consistency.
It's the reason not eating for a day will not make you lose weight, but reducing your unnecessary calories for a period of time will help you lose excessive weight.
The body loves to sing the Janet Jackson song "What Have You Done For Me Lately!
because consistency is the mother of results!
It's time for you to stop messing around. Quit just playing with the idea of how amazing you will look or feel when finally start getting serious.
Time to show up my friend and get consistent. Your body will love you for it!
Health & Happiness
