Getting healthy requires discipline, hard work, and sacrifice.
dis·ci·pline (verb):: to bring to a state of order and obedience by
training and control.
Yes, it’s hard work to break old habits and to get healthy. It requires giving up certain foods. It requires sweating. It requires making changes. It requires discipline. It won’t be easy. If it was easy everyone would be doing it. Take a look around….American isn’t healthy. We are an overweight society. This will be the first generation that parents will bury their children. How sad is that? Parents shouldn’t have to bury their children.
Something’s got to change and it starts with YOU!
1. The time to get started is NOW!
What are you waiting for? Life will never be perfect. There will never be the perfect time to start new habits. There will always be summer vacations, crisis, problems with family, kids, etc.
NO MORE EXCUSES!
2. MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY.
The #1 excuse people make for not getting in shape is “I don’t have time.” Yes, you do. We all have the same 24 hours in a day.
If you can’t find 30 minutes to 1 hour in your day, 3-4 times a week, you have a priority problem. Make your health a priority.
Do you watch TV? Cut out one TV show and exercise instead. Do you spend your time on the computer? Turn off the computer and use that time to get your heart rate up. We make time for the things that are important to us. You are important. Take care of YOU!
3. Enlist some help.
