With it being the first day of April, what better time to challenge people to not be a fitness fool? We mean this lightly of course but it is worth mentioning that if your goal is to live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy a high quality of life, you have to be “all in.”
This means that if you don’t want to be one of those people who stop, start, stop then start again with their exercise and healthy eating….then you have to commit to consistent and authentic activities.
With regard to consistency, pay close attention: Without it you will not succeed with a healthy lifestyle…period! Staying consistent doesn’t just happen, you have to fight for it, you have to nurture it, you have to strive for it and you have to reach for it. It is great to have a goal but consistency is the path to any goal so make sure that you place as much focus on it as you do your goals! The beauty of consistency is that it has many levels of intensity and as long as you are doing something, you are moving forward. This means that some days you feel great, other days you feel lazy but if you do “something” rather than nothing…you will be that much closer to your goals. That “never stop” process is what separates those who stay on a progressive path to success and those who never put forth the effort then wait around for the next trend to save them!
Authentic activity simply means that if you’re going to do something, do it right! Don’t read a few articles then tout yourself as a vegan focused on helping others live a better lifestyle yet you smoke cigarettes…that makes no sense! Lead by example because words are just words and lead to nothing but more words! Don’t talk about what you want to achieve, make your plan and attack your goals with 100% authenticity because time won’t wait for you and time knows if your faking it or truly making it…Boom!
If you want true results and a healthy lifestyle that will support many years of great experiences and a high quality of life, you can’t do it with half your heart, it has to be with the whole darn thing…Happy April!
