Day 40 – Two Thirds Through Phase 1

Wow those 40 days went fast! In 40 days the change is remarkable, people are beginning to notice and their kind comments are spurring me on more to reach my goal of a happy and healthy lifestyle. I have another 20 days to go in phase 1 – it will be easy – 20 days is less than 3 weeks and I am on auto-pilot. I have created new habits and I am sticking to them, they are now the norm. My training for the marathon is still very much in its infancy, but I am sticking to schedule and have integrated it into my daily routine, the habit is once again starting to become the norm. Having a plan and routine removes the decision making process and reduces the risk of going off track Planning and preparation are essential in any attempt to lose weight and change your lifestyle. It is not an easy task but if you take the time to structure it in a way that suits your lifestyle and goals then it makes the execution process so much easier. Being happy and healthy is not a part-time job with a defined end date, it is a full time job for the rest of your life. If you want to maximize the value of your life then you have to work extremely hard at it. Nothing worth doing is ever going to be easy! šŸ™‚
