Question: I have tried to get started exercising a hundred different times. I always fall away from it. How can I stay committed?
ANNswer: You can stay committed by deciding that your physical health is important to you. The average American only gets between 3500 and 5100 steps in per day. We have to move on purpose!! If you find yourself detesting structured exercise programs then do activities that you consider fun daily. Do you like to golf, play tennis, dance, rollerblade or walk? We need to intentionally move at least an hour every day. Everything you do counts. If you only have ten minutes here and there, fit your moving in that way. Lifestyle changes do not come by wishing them so. They are instilled by continually committing to doing the right choice day in and day out even when we don’t feel like it. Commit to moving daily and do it. Don’t look back. It is easy to revert to old habits when you are tempted to look back remember Jesus died that you may have a new life (John 10; 10). Call on Him and His strength to help you treat your body as His temple.
James 1:8 “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
Be fit and be blessed,
