My cheat meal has turned into a 6 year binge and this year I need to fix it. No this isn't a resolution. I hate that word quite frankly. Maybe because I never kept any of mine, even though I always entered them with the best of intentions. Don't we all?
I'm not going to do some mad work out routine at 4 am, or will I ? Maybe the 4 am work out is the secret to self discipline I've been looking for all this time. Is it about the time? The routine? Does it really just come down to the consistency of doing it everyday whenever you can fit it in?
In my 20's I was a gym junkie. I'd work out between 3 & 4 hours a day. Creatine was my friend, along with every other powder, protein mix and diet pill I could get my hands on. I looked fantastic, but I was the epitome of unhealthy. I don't need to be the 20 year old version of me, simply a version better than the one I am right now.
I know I feel better when I work out. Everyone around me benefits from it. I beleive I can give more. More love, more compassion, more empathy, more energy, because I'm leading from a place that feels good.
2023 was my year to get my mental health on track. Perhaps 2024 is the year I get my physical health on track.
What's your secret to discipline?
See you tomorrow!
