Lets jump back into a little bit of the fitness side, don’t wait until January 1st. Thats the easiest excuse especially since it is December 1st. December is a month of hustle and bustle, family parties, Christmas, New Years Eve, all these great events to be with family and friends. They are also all great excuses as to why to wait until January 1st to change your habits in and out of the gym. So lets break it down…
If you start going to the gym/eating a little healthier today you will probably have about 2 weeks before the “party season” begins, now those 2 weeks will get some positive momentum rolling as well as gets you started and comfortable with being uncomfortable. If we wait until January 1st the food and missing the gym will add up, we miss out on at least 2 weeks of making ourselves better. Not to mention once that momentum gets rolling, you will be more likely to make a better choices and make time for the gym during that busy week of Christmas and New Years.
Jan. 1st is the ultimate “I will start Monday” but if we wait until then we miss out on days to get better and get that momentum rolling. It doesn’t have to be in the gym either, it could doing more in your career, getting into the Word more, going to church, getting a budget started, spending more time with your family, whatever it may be in your life! Don’t push working towards your goals back until Monday or until January 1st. If you put yourself in that “start Monday” mindset you have already started to lose, so don’t wait start today, there is nothing special about January 1st, so I challenge you to start making sure your actions align with your goals starting today whether it is Dec. 1st, 13th, or 24th; whether its a Monday, Thursday, or Saturday start now!
