When you get down to it, being 'fit' is a feeling.... It's vitality. It's energy. It's feeling good in your own skin. It's moving with ease and strength and confidence. It is not easy, however. It takes hard work, consistency, perseverance and discipline.
It takes time. It takes establishment of good habits. Moving that body of yours requires your cooperation and faith.
It requires action. If you are thinking of getting 'fit', but never moving beyond your thought, then you are spinning a gerbil wheel with no where to go. So when you say to yourself, I want to get 'fit', you must act on it and get your groove on, then set yourself up for success with some help like this:
Get your work out gear in order.
Pack it the night before.
Put it in the car or place it by the door.
Establish the TIME you're going to work out.
Stick to it then NO more Excuses, alright!
Then you must drive to the gym, or do that dvd or run that mile, or stick to that trainer you hired.
Feel that feeling arise inside of you as you start your journey to being 'fit'. Don't let anyone stop you. It's your body. It's your life. It's your choice. It's your call. EVERYONE has it inside themselves. So the next time you are thinking about getting 'fit' know that it must be your mind telling your body it's time to take action to find that 'fit' feeling inside of you!
