Week 10 is here – already. If you have done nothing, 10 weeks have passed and you are no better off. If you have taken some action – the offered strategies or your own – you are in a better place in regards to health, weight and motivation.
Perhaps 10 weeks ago was not a “good time” to start the process. But when will be? I often hear the “when life gets back to normal” excuse…but what is normal? You will always face vacations, dinners out, tragedies, disruptions, business, graduations, weddings, funerals, parties…you name it. If you wait for these things to cease, well, you might as well wait forever. Are you waiting now? Why?
Here in the Springs, life has been very abnormal for some people given that we experienced the greatest wildfire disaster in the history of the state at the end of June. Yet, some maintain their diligence and commitment to health and fitness. I am heartened by one member who has taken my cycling class for years. She showed up on schedule for class even though her house burned to the ground. If anyone’s life is abnormal right now, it is hers.
As I’ve mentioned before it takes 21 days for a new habit to settle in…probably longer. You’ll have to work at it – but if you don’t start, you’ll never succeed.
