Commitment

I have been dancing around starting Jillian Michaels’ Body Revolution for a while.  I’ve done day 1, day 2 and day 3.  But, I haven’t done them in a row.  They have been spread out by a few days…. or a week.

I know that my perfectionist tendencies make this task more difficult.  90 days is a long time to commit to a workout program.  I know that there are people out there who would say, “It’s only 3 months!”  I wish I had that mindset.  I tend to think “Oh, no!  It’s 3 months!  That’s a long time to be perfect!”

I am making a conscious effort to throw my perfectionist tendencies out the window.  I would rather be imperfect than be a failure.

So, today I start.  I know it is possible for me to complete the program.  I know that it will take some dedication.  It will also mean that I will be breaking a bad habit.  If I miss a workout.  I will continue with the program the next day.  Missing a workout is not a reason to quit — it is a reason to push harder the next day.  If I don’t get any “me” time until 10 pm, I will workout at 10 pm.  No excuses.  The end goal is worth it.

  1. Good luck! 90 days really is nothing when you start to view exercise as a lifestyle choice. That’s the one way you’ll be successful, is seeing it as part of your everyday life, not something you have to do.
