Dear Boys and Girls,
It's been a while, I know! I always wonder if people wonder whether my time away from blogging means time away from fitness. Are you kidding?! I am committed for life! Don't kid yourself, this is not a jail sentence. Commitment to your own fitness and health, in my hardly ever humble opinion, is the most awesome kind of commitment there could be.
Over the past year and a half since I've been a coach, I see folks come and go. I see those folks who start off strong and who drop off the face off the earth. I think of them from time to time and just hope that wherever they are, they are doing well on the journey.
Then there are those folks who commit, who press play, who eat clean, who see results, but then, when life gets tough, they abandon ship. They sometimes write to tell me that life is just too busy at the moment, that they're just gonna do a little elliptical, a little walking, a little this and a little that. Then, predictably, at least to me, they disappear. But these folks are different than the first. See, they eventually come back, usually fatter than before, feeling frustrated and defeated.
My support is unconditional. Let's do it again, girl/dude, I say. And we do it again. I remind them that we can't just abandon ship when life happens, because life is always gonna get messy at some point or another. The sooner we learn that, the better off we'll be.
Boys and girls, exercising and eating clean are probably the only things in life we can control. I know, I know, you have three kids, a super busy job, marital problems, you name it. But just know that there are others out there in a similar situation and who are making the time to take care of themselves.
Make time for you! You're worth it! Believe it.
Yours in success,
