get organized to be fit

My Mom always says that she doesn’t have any talents, but that is not true. Of all of my talents the one I appreciate most is my ability to organize. This is something that I inherited from my Mom. (thanks Mom!)

I do believe some people are naturally more organized than others, but I also believe that you can learn to be more organized. Organization is a perspective. It’s how we view and prioritize things. You have heard the old adage: If there is a will, there is a way. If you truly want to be healthy and start exercising, you can. If this were not true then busy and healthy people would not exist. If being healthy is a priority to you, you will find a way to do it. It’s like having a job – we rarely miss a day of work because we can’t. We need that paycheck. Well, our bodies need exercise; and now is the time to get organized to do just that. Start by giving last year’s resolutions a review, if you don’t have any, then let’s set some. Here’s how.

  1. Brainstorm a list of possible health goals.
  2. Narrow it down to several realistic goals – things that can be done within a 12 months period of time.
  3. Make the goals very specific (for example instead of “lose weight” the goal would read “Lose 25 pounds by April 1, 2010”)
  4. Break then down into bite size pieces (ie. Eat 7 servings of fruits/vegetables every day for 20 days to create a habit)
  5. Start working on your goal now (you don’t have to wait for the New Year to begin, get a head start now).

Avoid putting on the average 10 pounds most Americans add to their waist line over the holidays by having a plan in place before things get too hectic.
