I’ve discovered a totally new workout program. It is completely manageable; sticking with it is not a problem at all. I call it, “Exercise By Osmosis.”
It goes something like this:
First, I take personal responsibility for determining what I will do and what I won’t do. Often I fool myself into believing that if circumstances were right, if time permitted, when it felt good, and wouldn’t hurt or make me feel the least bit uncomfortable, I would engage in an exercise program. This has been a real stumbling block to my ego. It is so much easier to not do it. That’s right,
“JUST (don’t) DO IT!”
I have found by purposing in my mind to not do something – I am successful in accomplishing what I am not going to do approximately 99.5% of the time. That percentage is remarkable! And, by doing absolutely nothing, nothing gets done! That’s right, the results are immediate!
This has been an amazing revelation. So many times in the past I would work out, sweat, run home, jump on the scale, only to find that either I needed a new scale or the immediate effects of my toil were not at all evident. If I got far enough back from the mirror, sucked in my gut and then tightened my muscles, took off my glasses and squinted ever so slightly, adjusted the dimmer lights lower and posed in whatever manner satisfied my need to feel good about myself, I could briefly convince me that my commitment was paying off. But I had to keep going back! I mean, it was like a life commitment! Not only that, I had to do the same things over and over again “believing” that in so doing change was taking place and that maybe, just maybe, at some point the reward for my effort would be evident.
Now, it’s simple. I watch others workout. No sweat, no sore muscles – I am perfectly unaffected. I bother no one, no one bothers me. I just watch it all happen.
Okay, okay I’ll admit it. I’m pulling your leg. There is no, “Exercise By Osmosis.” But as silly as such a claim might be – there is something holding many of you back from enjoying the very best YOU.
It is September, the ninth month of the year and the beginning of autumn. Change is taking place all around us and I want to encourage you to participate in that change! It’s time to experience physical, social and emotional growth. Whatever it may be that has held you back in the past – is past. TODAY is the day to make your commitment and NOW is the time to follow through!
The holiday season is right around the corner. This year enter the season with a fitness plan that carries you through 2019 and beyond, guilt free, with more energy, and ready to enjoy life to the fullest!
