“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going” -Jim Rohn
I read an article by Jim Rohn about making changes and how to go about it, even when it is difficult. The fact that it is easy to ignore and take the easy path so it is true that we must make the decision, the choice first…..
In recent medical WAKEUP I found I had developed heart failure and Atrial Fibrillation (A Fib) . The initial treatment focused on losing, flushing fluid from the body…a secondary benefit of that was a loss of weight. This benefit showed itself when I began exercising and walking. A drop of 50 then 70 and now over 100 pounds has reduced the strain on my body, knees and legs allowing me to workout more frequently.
The cardio workouts are strengthening my heart and lungs and the weightlifting is strengthening the body and spirit…I love walking and running BUT pushing weights is a BLAST. As I lost a lot of fluid weight and it is still gone- now I workout and lose the Fat and Gristle and continue to drop the weight, move towards a target body-weight and body shape for my 80 inch body . Time to decide on where to settle but for now somewhere in the 245-250 lb neighborhood is the target.
Looking at the article by Mr.Rohn- I need to make the decision everyday to workout and eat properly. This will help develop the HABIT to allow for success in the process and later maintaining the target fitness level.
Will use this and other Rohn ideas and writings for setting and achieving goals and success.
