This week, I wanted to write to you about the long haul.
Our society is one of instant gratification. Much of what we want we can have within minutes or days. We have been conditioned to expect it.
Instant Downloads for audiobooks and books
It is truly amazing…
With health and fitness though much of what we want takes time.
We can have the instant gratification of a great workout and feeling better during it or after.
We can have the gratification of more energy when we sleep better and drink water but in terms of physical gains: muscle gains or fat loss, sports performance etc. it takes time. We need to be in for the long haul.
Shedding 100+ lbs (and keeping it off) can take years- a gradual lifestyle change. Or it can be done in a year.
Even losing 20lbs can take many months if we are doing it gradually without too much sacrifice.
Most of the fitness and health pursuits we truly desire take time. Adding a 1/4 lb of muscle can take a month for many women.
We need to be on this fitness journey for the long haul which brings me to the next point.
As much as possible, aim to have fun with your journey.
And my hope is that all of you, will fall in love with moving your bodies because it feels good…that way regardless of what’s happening with your physical changes you will continue to move because it is good for you.
Remember all of this is about the long haul.
Stay consistent and committed.
We believe in you.
