Today is not only the first day of November. It is also the beginning of the season when we make every excuse to "start after the holidays".
Procrastination is part of most of our lives, but especially our health. We'll start exercising or eating right tomorrow. We always have a reason that we can't start now. This time of year the reason is Thanksgiving, or Christmas, or New Year's Eve. We give ourselves that "New Year" goal. However, isn't every day an opportunity to start again? Every day that we are allowed to wake up is a new beginning. Yesterday is in the past. We can't go back and change what we did or the mistakes we made. We can change what we will do today!
The holidays shouldn't be an excuse to procrastinate. After all, there will always be some special occasion coming up. After New Year's Eve, we'll blame the Super Bowl party, or Valentine's Day, or Easter, or Great Aunt Tildy's birthday! No one is perfect all of the time. We can do our best to enjoy special occasions and still maintain control when it comes to eating. We can move our bodies every day.
Stand out from the crowd. Be different. Don't wait until January. Start now!
