(BPT) - By now you’ve abandoned your plan to eat a healthier breakfast and spend an hour at the gym every day. Across the country, self-improvement resolutions have fallen by the wayside. Instead of succumbing to guilt and frustration over what you might not do this year, why not focus your energy on a goal that’s achievable at any time of year – financial fitness?
Often times the difference, in fitness, between success and failure is a motivating factor. That motivating factor is the power source that gives a person the necessary emotional tools to achieve goals that were previously unachievable. Sometimes the motivating factor is when a person steps on a scale for the first time in months and sees a number they never EVER wanted to see. Sometimes that factor is a doctor’s warning about health concerns. Sometimes it is caused by bumping into an old flame or the heartbreaking moment when you tear out the butt of your favorite pair of jeans.

Knowing you need to change your lifestyle and doing something about it creates anxious moments for some. It’s called “the fear factor” and for those of us of a certain age, it dates back to high school - physical education class. I hated it. Especially the pull-ups and the jeering classmates betting I couldn’t even make five of them.

Well, the challenge is officially over. I cannot believe how fast the year went! I have really enjoyed seeing the transformation in my body, and in my eating habits. I have made a lifestyle change for life! I feel so good, that I will never go back to my old ways. I want to encourage anyone who is struggling with getting fit and healthy. Just give yourself a year and do it! Commit to exercising and eating healthy and find some accountability. Give a gift to yourself and get a trainer, even if it is to just get started. Join a gym and get ideas from those working out around you. Get your spouse or a friend to join you. I never imagined how good I would feel, and after a year, working out is not easy but definitely more enjoyable.
Well, down to the last week of this challenge! I cannot believe the year went so fast. I must admit that I am very sad for this challenge to be over. I learned so much about exercise, weight lifting, healthy eating, and lifestyle changes. I have been so spoiled with having a trainer think for me and tell me what to do.
