Here is the true secret of training and being healthy and a few of you go through it from time to time, EVERY single year!
Cyril is going through it right now!
On the challenge of 84 days, he was cycling in the snow and ice, pulling out the stops at every opportunity and being a true example to everyone.
Now he is going through a harder time now just to get going. The weather is a lot nicer, everyone wants to get into shape for the summer, and there is far more opportunity to go out and do things. There is more light and its sociable this time of year to get out there and do it!
So what’s the problem would you say?
What i mean by filling in the gaps is this, there are significant gaps usually in the year in most people’s health and fitness programmes, and this is the biggest reason why most people don’t get the kind of success that they think they deserve.
If you have had an impressive 84 days already this year, then that’s fantastic.
What happens though if your next 42 days are mediocre, and you start to miss workouts.
What happens when the next 7 weeks are seen as “a rest” by you.
Then it gets VERY hard to get going again, and it can take all kinds of motivation simply to get to do ONE workout again, leave alone make the impressive progress that you’re used to.
THESE GAPS CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!
If you have a few gaps each year, its going to be like a game of snakes and ladders. You will climb one ladder, then slide down a snake pretty soon, then you have to start again which is so frustrating isn’t it?!!!!
What would happen to your teeth if you didn’t brush them every day? Would you let them rot? Then start cleaning them again for a couple of months, then stop for another couple of months?
Of course not and you know it!!
So why do you let your body go backwards so much in these “gaps” each year? Why does that happen?
You clean your teeth every day as if its second nature, in fact it is!!
If you can get to this stage with exercise, doing it without thinking about it, then your plan will work amazingly well for you and you will look and feel fantastic for 12 months, EVERY year!
So what are you waiting for, let’s get out of this rut and do what you know is very possible in your life, being in great health is a choice for you all, let’s fix it and get back to basics right now and start monday with a bang!!!
No gaps this week, no gaps next month and no gaps for the rest of the year! This is my challenge to you!
