Some of you are naturally healthy and fit and lean and mean. I, on the other hand tend to gain weight with the mere thought of food. It’s a gift really. So perhaps like most of us I tend to consider exercising and eating healthier, but it usually goes no further than just a simple consideration.
However, after attending Steven Covey’s Seminar: 7 Habits of Highly Effective People I have reconsidered, and what started out as a 1 week goal has now turned into something much, much more; a mantra.
Eat less and move more.
It’s a simple equation that I believe will effect every aspect of my life.
A phrase I heard often within Covey’s Seminar was to, “Live life by Design and not by Default.” We are all going to end up somewhere … if we make conscious efforts along the way based on what we value, we are more likely to end up where we want.
So, I have chosen to eat less and move more so that I can be highly effective in all that I do. Research has proven that it takes 21 days to create a habit. I am on Day 14 of a life long journey toward healthier living. It’s not easy but I am working toward a greater purpose, something bigger than just myself.
