February is the so called month of love and my question to you is: are you still in a loving relationship with your health and fitness resolutions or was it more like a month long fling which left you unsatisfied and wanting more?
To be clear, I am not a fan of the fad (and that’s putting it lightly) Health and fitness for me and those who I train is, or is turning into a long term relationship (oh yes, things are serious); it’s something you invest yourself and your time in, not simply a month of detox tea and sit ups.
Throughout January in particular, we are bombarded with all the detoxes, celeb workout DVD’s, shakes, diets, lotions and potions predominantly promising super health and abs on abs in a matter of weeks.
The catch here however, is that the majority of these fads are not sustainable and most likely won’t benefit you in the long term. These are the flings and they require less investment but in the end you break up with them.
The ultimate goal is to live and move healthfully well into our later years; so I propose LOVE
LOVE the skin you’re in and train and nourish your body not because you hate it but because you LOVE it
Find an activity you LOVE to do and which makes you happy…
And finally learn to LOVE the journey. No relationship is easy and there will be times that you struggle and times you need to adapt, but when it comes to the health and fitness relationship that you LOVE, there is one thing for sure, you always get out what you put in!
