It has everything to do with the effort you are willing to put in and lots and lots of willpower.
I don't just float around eating whatever I want when I feel like it and sitting on the couch doing nothing all day. Maybe when I was in my early 20's I got away with that ! These days it takes EFFORT.
I have to pull myself out of bed then choose to work out. If my little guy is at home I have to take the hour of quiet time and use it to workout. I make a conscious choice to do it. Here is what helps me make that choice.
- An Exercise Plan
- A meal plan
- Laying my workout clothes out the night before
- Keeping healthy foods in the house and nothing that would tempt me to binge on it
- Thinking how crappy I feel when I neglect my body.
I know this is similar to a post I wrote last week but I just feel like it is important and was kind of sick of people telling me I was lucky because I am fit.
Eating Healthy takes a Commitment
Getting Fit takes a Commitment
Neither is Luck!!
So next time you see someone that looks fit and healthy or makes a decision not to eat that cookie. Congratulate them on their willpower and commitment!
