That’s right, go ahead and get started. Go for a walk or a run. Cook up a healthy recipe. Clean off the clothes off the treadmill in your bedroom. Look up a workout plan that fits your schedule. Whatever it is, go ahead and get started.
So what if you can only walk a few minutes before you are completely out of breath. So what if you haven’t used that gym membership in two years. So what if you have never really cooked a healthy meal. It doesn’t matter you can start today! Matter fact, start right now.
So many people say “After Thanksgiving, I’m going to start back working out. Or I’m gonna get back in shape after the New Year. So many people talk about it what they are going to do. They tell their friends, families, and co-workers. Then they go on Facebook & update their profile and Twitter to make these big disclaimers that they are going to start this new life journey on this particular date. My question to you is “Why Wait?” What’s holding you back? Did someone tell you that you had to wait? I’m giving you permission to go ahead and start.
You could get started right now so by the time the spring gets here, you can already be into a pretty good routine. You could be seeing the fruits of your labor right now. You don’t need to tell anyone. You don’t need to post it on Facebook. You don’t need to Tweet it. Just get started. I have come to a realize that a lot of people actually say that they want to lose weight or get healthy but truth be told, they just like to hear how it rolls off their lips. Losing weight and living a healthier life requires work.
Work is defined as an activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result.
It did not mention that work is you “talking” about what you want to do or “wish” you could do. It is simply doing it. I realize that is hard. You may not have work out equipment at home. You may not have that gym membership but that doesn’t mean you can’t start. Start at whatever level you are currently at. Don’t worry about that person who can run faster, lift heavier, or workout longer. Start at your level.
You don’t have to have all the carbs, proteins, and fats all figured out and that it’s 3,500 calories in a pound. That’s all good stuff to know but all you need to do is start. I’m going to get off my soapbox on with this rant & rave and just say “Get Started”.
