We have already discussed Step 1, Getting Started, and Step 2, Knowing Your Limits.
As long as you are getting into motion habitually and honoring your limits while you stretch them, the only step left is to Keep Moving!
It’s really just that simple.
That doesn’t mean that you should beat yourself up if you fall off of your program! Hey, if you get back up tomorrow, and have an active day, then you are on the right track! Allow yourself your resistance, BUT get past it and get moving again!
You haven’t given up until you don’t get back up! The longer you wait to get moving again, the harder it will be.
Getting back on your program is VICTORY!
All that is required is that you keep on going! If you can do that, you will see results.
Don’t feel like you need to kill yourself. You should be able to talk comfortably while you move. Respect your limits and you will not deplete yourself.
If your health is already compromised, you may not be able to do much at first. No problem! As long as you engage in sustained activity daily, taking care to honor your limits, you WILL improve and feel better!
Feeling better and having more energy is all you will need to continue working at it!
Set yourself up for success. Giving your best effort everyday IS success.
Your best effort means being sensitive to your needs.
In fact you want to allow for plenty of rest and recuperation. If you feel overly tired, take a nap instead of a walk and see if you don’t feel more like walking the next day.
To make success super easy, cook up some FUN to go with your sustained activity!
Having fun is one way to make sure you never miss a chance to be active!
It really is just that simple!
Are you ready to achieve your fitness goals in 2012?
Why is physical fitness so important?
Because you won’t achieve your health goals without moving your body to create fitness!
Move it or lose it!
