What’s A Postage Stamp Good For?

When I was a kid, I was a terrible "finisher".

For instance I liked to build model airplanes and cars, and I'd do one of two things;

  • Rush through it so fast in an effort to get it "done" that I did a really crappy job, or...
  • Start it, get bored because it wasn't going fast enough, and leave it unfinished.

So what's that got to do with postage stamps?

A stamp is only useful when it sticks to the envelope long enough to get it to its destination.

It might surprise you that over the years I have tried and failed at many diet and exercise programs. The problem usually wasn't the program, it almost NEVER is. The problem was that, just like with my model airplanes, I either just wanted it to "get it done", so never really committed to following it in the first place, or didn't lose 20 pounds the first two weeks, declared that the program "doesn't work", and went looking for "next".

Have you ever put a stamp on an envelope, messed up the address, and tried to get it back off so you could reuse it? It's crazy how sticky those things are!

It was only when I finally stuck with a good nutrition and exercise plan, through "snow and rain and heat and gloom of night" that I finally reached my initial weight loss goal. 

We are getting into one of the busiest times of the year. A season that is supposed to bring joy and happiness often times seems to just being stress and hassle.

Stick with it. Don't let circumstances derail what you want. Keep training consistently, keep chipping away at better eating habits, get some sleep. Your family at Cr8 Fitness has your back. If you need help, let us know.

Keep making it happen,
