“Procrastination is a way for us to be satisfied with second-rate results; we can always tell ourselves we’d have done a better job if only we’d had more time…If you’re good at rationalizing, you can keep yourself feeling rather satisfied this way, but it’s a ‘cheap happy’. You’re whittling your expectations of yourself down lower and lower.” –Richard O’Conner (author of Happy At Last)
this week’s encouragement is to make this the week you finally do your plans. if you have been saying you plan to get a track, stationary bike or treadmill then make this the week you actually do it. then when winter sets in you are still set to keep those workouts going. have you been meaning to get your stability ball out and try some of the exercises described here or maybe some online? then today go in there and dust that puppy off and get to it. do you want to quit drinking sodas but just can’t get going on it? today can be the day you pour out the few sodas you have left and stock up on bottled water. you know the main issues you struggle to actually get done. you also know that only you can makeup your mind to begin now. spend a bit of quite time going over the plans you’ve made lately in the fitness and dieting arena. pull out two and just get with it. then maybe in a couple of days you can get going on yet another fitness or healthy eating goal. these small steps get you going on the journey of a healthy, more energized life. go to it!
