Hey! Summer has officially began in Fresno, CA and swimsuit season is here! You must be thinking, “Great! Time to get in shape!” I know that the sun gets you thinking…but really? Getting in shape for a season is not what it really should be about. I totally get it, don’t get me wrong! We all want to look good in our swimsuits! But, wouldn’t it be nice to look good and feel good year round? I mean really, when and where do you start? Most of you will say, “I’m going to start Monday!” How many Monday’s have you started? Or some of you may have every excuse in the book of why you can’t start. My question to you is: “When is it ever a good time to start?” It’s never going to happen if you keep putting it off. We will always find excuses…it’s called LIFE! I get it… Life Happens! So let’s start your journey NOW. Start with just 5 minutes a day of activity..and work your self up to more activity! Start with putting one soda down a day until eventually it get’s easier. Summer weight loss? No such thing…it should be a lifestyle that you are willing to change. Nothing drastic, no quick fixes..remind yourself you have to work at it everyday no matter what shape or size. You can’t just get your body functioning at full potential and expect it to stay there without any maintenance! Bottom Line: American’s are now at a 76% rate of obesity. Stop pointing the finger and take a look around, including yourself. How is life for you right now? And do you feel comfortable feeling tired, irritable, low energy and BLAH all day? It doesn’t matter what shape or size you are…it’s about getting healthy and feeling good. Sound like you? Give me a call…or blog with me! Let me know your concerns, comments, or questions. Don’t take it personal, I’m just truly concerned that if we don’t start to change or break our unhealthy habits, our kids have no chance of survival. Take a look at your children or children around you. If they are struggling now? How will they be in 5 or 10 years? What kind of example are we providing? We are the adults..we are the parents..we should know better! And even if you “know”,,you need to “do!” Those kids are our future…just take a moment to think about how you can make a difference. If it starts this summer..GREAT! Just make sure you keep it a lifestyle!
