Today is a big deal

You woke up this morning and began making choices.

You chose whether or not to exercise, to eat a healthy breakfast, or to do something productive. You chose whether or not to eat that donut, to sleep in, or to watch an extra hour of TV.

At the end of each day the sum of your choices pushes you in a direction.

It could be pushing you in the direction of fitness and health, if your choices were predominantly wholesome.

Or the sum of your choices could be pushing you in the direction of weight gain, health issues and problems.

I find this perspective to be helpful when it comes to making a major body transformation. It’s tempting to feel helpless in changing your body when you have so many pounds to lose and so much work to do. 

Maybe you're over 50 years old and have limitations that slow you down even more and there's no way it can all be done in a short amount of time. There's even the thought, "Why bother"? 

However, by capturing the power of each day by making wholesome choices, you will be pushed in the direction of fat loss and a healthier you day after day, week after week.

Until one day you’ll look in the mirror and see that you’ve arrived at your ultimate destination: a leaner, healthier and more vibrant you who is able to MOVE better, you FEEL better and you just know you are NOW aging actively. 

So embrace the power of each choice that you make today, and allow a momentum of good choices to push you through to your goal.

Today is a big deal. Today is all you have.

Make the most of today.

If you’re not yet one of my prized clients then make the excellent choice to call or email me today to get started on a functional fitness program for the over 50 crowd that will supercharge your momentum towards the best version of yourself.

Let’s do this!

Do This At Bedtime

The best way to ensure that you will make stellar choices tomorrow is to plan for it tonight. Before you go to sleep, jot out your plan for the next day.

What will you eat? What is your exercise plan? What food traps will you avoid? How much time will you spend watching TV?

Write down your ideal day and then sleep on it. When you wake up take that list with you as a guide to making great choices all day long.

Make this a before-bed ritual and watch how quickly you see the results!
