Hi all! Here we are at the end of March and if you have been a part of the 12K Challenge Team, we have been going for 8 weeks! I am hoping in one way or another you have been making positive steps forward either in your work outs, your eating habits, or both. I would love to hear about how you are doing and if you care to share your story – drop me a line here.
I enjoy working out with other people and setting up gym times, people to ride bike with, run with, etc… but what I wanted to do today is bottom line it…
If you are not in it for yourself it’s just not going to happen.
When we first started this challenge I struggled getting into a routine. It was good to have other people around me with similar goals that I could connect with to meet at the gym, or plan a healthy outing… however, as I have known from the past and I know again now – if you are not willing to make the commitment for yourself you will not succeed.
Alright – that sounds kind of negative… but really, it is not. Instead it is calling the truth to the surface – if your friends or family can not work out with you, do you just not do it?
Or do you strap on your tennis shoes, and go out and do it for yourself?
If in doubt, the answer is the latter.
I am not saying I have it right… I certainly do not, but I do know that I should be pushing myself every day to feel good, and make a difference in me – physically and mentally.
If you have slipped away from routine, fallen back into old habits, its not too late – starting today is still starting. April is a few short days away… Lets not be “April Fools” lets get up and get out and move and start seeing the difference in yourself as there is no great motivation!
How are you doing? What is going well? What can motivate you?
