This morning I happened up a blog post by Peter Shankman which was honest and real and hopefully will make you think. For those of you who know or follow Peter (met him a few years ago at a networking event) he’s the PR and social media guru. In his blog Peter shares the truth about his own journey and his struggle with complacency.
It’s so easy to fall out of the habits that make us feel good and keep us healthy. And as he says, we’re often not even quite sure how it happens. What matters most is making the choice to get back on track, as he’s doing.
Here’s a peak, but I encourage you to read the full post and be inspired!
“Fitness doesn’t respect future workouts. Fitness only knows the here and now. If you eat a whole pizza now, that workout in three weeks won’t mean shit to it. In the world of being healthy and in shape, there are millions of “I’ll do this tomorrow” excuses lying by the side of the road, while the few healthy and in-shape people running past them shake their heads in pity.
You can’t justify yourself to a better shape. You need to act on it, and you can’t “schedule time” to act on it. It needs to happen all the time.”
Amen to that Peter! And all the best on your journey.
