The Best Time Is Now

Hey! Coach Jenn here!  I love listening to podcasts when I am doing tasks that don’t require a lot of brain power, and one I’m enjoying listening to is Meathead Hippie!  I love that they talk frequently about meditation and self-care AND lifting heavy – what a great combo!  One of the episodes I caught the other day mentioned this Chinese Proverb:

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

That quote struck me so profoundly – because so often we get members in our door here at Fit Body who are only starting their fitness journey due to a health scare, or even after a major health disruption.  And they tell us, “I wish I would have started exercising (or eating right) years ago!”  They don’t say these words casually- there’s usually tears in their eyes, and sometimes fear.  And regret.

BUT, it is NEVER too late to start your journey to better health.  It’s never too late to start a new fitness routing and to make different eating choices.  Like the proverb says, “the second best time is NOW.”  Don’t wait until your own health scare – your life is too important, your people NEED YOU!  We only get one life, so value your health and cherish and care for your body.

Think about it like this… what do you think will happen if you never start?  If you never make changes?  For many people, that means living a life with pain and lack of true mobility due to extra weight.  It means a future of health issues like diabetes or certain cancers or heart disease.  And, because I’m a mom of two daughter, this one always struck a chord with me – what I do FOR my body, FOR my health, has a tremendous ripple effect on my family.  So are you leading by example?  Are you breaking the chain of obesity in your family by actively changing your story today??  The best time is now, my friend, and we are here to help you every step of the way. xo
