To look at me, you wouldn’t think that I LOVE going to the gym. But, I do. I really do. It’s nice to not have to talk to people. It makes me feel really good when I feel strong. I do just fine with motivation (most of the time).
But, like most big things in my life, I have a (not so secret) desire to get swatted on the head by a fairy godmother who magically turns things into how I want them to be. I want to expend no effort and I want results now. So, I think, “I’ll get fit one day”.
And I know that’s not how it works. I go to the gym every day that I can. I work really, really hard at the gym.
But I have to remind to remind myself that “getting fit” is a day-to-day thing. It doesn’t happen all at once. It doesn’t happen because I think about it. It happens because while I “wait”, I’m being active. I’m making small choices every day that either take me closer to or farther from my goal.
So, “waiting to get fit” doesn’t mean waiting on my heels. It means getting off my backside every day. It’s active.
How are you actively waiting?
