Stop the excuses - It's time to Commit

“I’m just too Tired” “I don’t feel like it”

I hear that all the time from people. Just like those people who have good intentions with their New Year’s Resolutions but can’t seem to drag their butt off the couch “Maybe I’ll start tomorrow” they say.

Well tomorrow never comes. In order to get motivated you need to COMMIT.

I have turned down many potential clients because think of excuses rather than solutions. They say that they don’t have the time, they are too tired.

Well if you want to have a better a quality of life and have ample energy you need to make an effort. Starting fitness training is not always easy. Nothing worth doing is ever easy. But you must think you can and try.

Commit your mind to a new vision of yourself focus on positive not negative thoughts.  Turn over a new leaf and reinvent yourself.

  • Commit to at least 30 minutes a day of exercise, focusing on you and your fitness goals.

  • Commit to a balanced exercise program – start with mini-workouts** and add on from there.

  • Commit to making the most out of your valuable time.

  • Commit time for YOURSELF.

Hey, I’m sure you can add to this…..

** Note: Mini Workouts are a great way to get started. Short frequent workouts (10-minute sessions, three times a day) produce the same health benefits as a daily 30 minute session. 

Just remember: either you commit yourself or you quit yourself.

Think “Use it or Lose It”. - Your body is basically deteriorating from lack of use - only YOU can change it!

The first step is the hardest. Just like starting a resolution – turn it into a reality. Once you start, focus on all the good things that eating right and exercise does for you.

Now this article is geared towards getting committed – considering that you get enough sleep but may still feel exhausted. If you are tired from sleep related problems there are things you can do to help get a restful sleep.

  • Stick to a regular bedtime and wake-up time. Prime your body to fall asleep when you get into bed.
  • Remove televisions, computers and work materials from the bedroom,
  • Read a book or do yoga or tai chi just prior to going to bed – this will help “wind-down your body”
  • Keep the bedroom cool and dark – turn away the light from the alarm clock.
  • Commit to exercise. This improves sleep, reduces stress, anxiety and depression, and gives you a higher level of energy.

Addressing YOUR physical fitness is ultimately a personal choice. If you want to have more energy, look and feel good, then make physical fitness a part of your life.

If you are having trouble getting started a personal trainer can help. Once you commit it is easy to get hooked and never go back. Start today – summer is not far off!
