Truthfully, I have not gotten on the Fitness Challenge bandwagon going around for the past
few years. I’m not against a challenge, I believe there is value for some people if it helps them kick start a healthy lifestyle. However, challenges are focused on short term and my goal is to encourage people to focus on long term objectives. My theory is based on the fact that it did not take 20 or 30 days to gain weight, so it’s difficult to lose and maintain healthy weight in a short time for most people.
If you are looking for long-term success, you would benefit more from a lifestyle change, which generally takes time and repetition. Using a challenge to help you get on track to a wellness lifestyle is probably more beneficial than the expectations of a short range goal.
Living a fit and healthy lifestyle takes planning, particularly if you have not been active in long periods of time. Remember, we are at the point that we should be focused on a lifestyle change which includes diet, exercise, sleep, water and less stress. I don’t want to make this seem simple because the truth is, the older we are, the more difficult change is. That’s why I’m here as your fitness coach. Even though change can be good, change also is difficult and even painful at times.
Remember, change your habits, change your life.
