Fitness is Not About Having All the Answers

Fitness is a process and an ongoing journey of learning. What works best for each of us is discovered through trial and error. There will frustrations and victories fine tuning our daily choices.  It's not about having all the answers because we never will. Our bodies will change and circumstances will happen. Through it all, the pursuit of health and fitness needs to continue no matter what. Quitting is never an option for us.

There is no free pass to fitness and it does come at a price. Many of us may think there is a quick answer to results. We gravitate toward pseudo-fitness believing the impossible and spend too much money on wasted gimmicks and unregulated supplements.

It's really OK to take things slow and enjoy the fitness ride along the way. We are works in progress striving to be better than yesterday. Mistakes are not seen as failures but opportunities to learn and grow. The mastery of adopting a healthy lifestyle stems from our mistakes and shows us the areas we need to change to reach our fitness goals.

We learn how to do adopt a healthy lifestyle through daily choices: what we eat and drink, how we exercise, time spent resting, and life balance. The opportunity is there for us and without excuse. Health and fitness come down to priorities and good time management.

Is your fitness taking a backseat to the busy going on in your life? How about negative self-talk keeping you from even trying?  Fitness is not about having all the answers. It does require you to want to change an unhealthy lifestyle. Something for you to think about.

  1. HI Darla I turned50 this year have been working out and mostly eating heathy for over 10 years do you use any protein powders pre workout powders I have tried several and just can't take all the sweetness but most say that's the best way to get protein to muscles after workout and before what's your take on them thanks Diana

  2. Hi Diana and Happy 50 Birthday! Such a great time in our life and glad you are here on the Blog. Personally, I do not use protein powders or pre-workout supplements and achieve my protein and carb intake through healthy foods pre and post workout. I know some prefer powders for the convenience factor and simplicity of quick re-fuel and that is fine as long as the GI system can tolerate it. I am also the Sports Nutrition Expert Writer for the health network and you will find very informative and helpful articles for your journey of health and fitness in addition to reading my Blog. Hope that helps and Stay Healthy! Darla
