This morning, my alarm went off at 5:20 just like it does every morning I go to the gym. I rolled out of bed around 5:30, made sure my husband was awake and started getting ready. I was actually ready a little early this morning which was exciting. I hopped in my car and off I went. As I got about 2 miles from my house I realized it was Wednesday. I didn’t schedule myself for class today, I scheduled it for Thursday. Somehow I got my days mixed up. I sat at the stop sign with a decision to make; turn around and go home and crawl back in my cozy bed or keep driving and go to class. I am embarrassed to admit that I really had to think about it for a minute or two! I am happy to report, I made it to class and my body is thanking me!
Most nutrition and fitness decisions come down to that one moment: Work out or sleep in? Eat and apple or a brownie? Take the stairs or the elevator? There are countless times throughout the day where we are given a choice to be healthy or not. The key is to choose the healthy options more times than the unhealthy. The more you do it, the easier it gets and eventually you will not even have to think about it.
Use the holiday season as your personal training program! This time of year is the most difficult time of year to maintain a healthy regimen. If you can do it now, the rest of the year will be a breeze!
