This morning I was at a Mom’s group, and one mom quoted the author/pastor John Maxwell. It was this:
Never before have I seen this to be so true than now. What I have going for me is my desire for structure. I have gone to the gym consistently 5-sometimes 6 days a week for the past 2.5 months, because it’s part of my routine. I don’t wake up and question it. I don’t change my plan because a better offer comes along.
When I make plans with people, the times I designated for the gym are off limits. I don’t say I’m free during those times. I’m not free, I’m at the gym. Obviously if something serious comes up I will modify my plan. If Freddy is sick I will take him on a walk or workout in the living room while he watches Paw Patrol for 30 min. instead. But generally speaking, I stick to my plan.
I was not always good at staying on track. Really, isn’t that the definition of quitting? Not staying on track? I decided that I was going to be all in. And once I made that decision, I’ve had some success with my fitness. Let me emphasize SOME, not like super amazing results- yet :0
