So I started out a few weeks ago all gung-ho to get into the September Challenge and get back to working out but it didn’t quite work out the way I had envisioned it. I made a lot of excuses for myself and basically chumped out. Instead of practicing what I preached I just preached.

I often say the road to hell is paved with good intentions and my intent was to do things differently but it still had the same result… nothing.

So instead of talking about what I’m going to do I will just do it. Or I won’t. And it will be obvious to everyone if I am living up to the standard I hold for myself and others around me.

To those who do do it and match their words and their deeds I look up to you. You are to be commended for stepping up when I was stepping down. My expectation of someone I follow or is in charge is pretty high and it causes me deep dissatisfaction for not being all those things.

I could sit here and promise that Ill do better but I think I will just say to everyone hold yourself to the standard we have tried to establish here regardless of the inconsistency that I have been displaying lately. Do it for yourself. Do it because at the end of the day its your health and your fitness that is on the line.

Its not hyperbole to say your fitness and health are a life or death matter. When you don’t have it you realize how valuable it was. While its typically agreed its never too late to try and get control back of your health, don’t tempt fate. While you still can, do what you can. We only have this one life. And its just a breath.
