We all know people who’ve had difficulty maintaining their fitness regimen from time to time. Most of us have faced it ourselves, at one time or another.
Some people seem to just get it. They look fit and stay fit, year in and year out. Others seem to be in, then they’re out, over and over. It’s almost like they’re doomed to repeat the pattern.

Every week, someone tells me they wish they’d started training sooner. Often, they wish they could find a way to get someone else to start eating right and exercising, too.
But until someone’s really ready, it’s pretty hard. There are so many demands on our time, with so many outside pressures, that until you really want it, you’re probably just spinning your wheels.
This applies to a lot of different things. I’ve seen it play out in my faith, my family, my education, and all the different stages of my career. It’s been evident in others too. You can’t really make a change until you’re really ready to make the change.
