“I have been doing this work out for the past ten years, why am I not seeing any results?” Have you ever felt like that like? Trust me; if anyone likes routine and schedules, it is me. But even with a routine, workout and exercise programs have to change or our fitness level and weight begins to plateau. Don’t get in the habit of doing the same thing over and over that you get stuck. Change the type, intensity or duration of our exercise.
Have you ever said, “When I used to work out, I did…, now I can’t stick with anything?” The reason is your life and body may be different now. You are a busy woman. Think back how your life was when you were consistent? How is it different from today? If you get into the habit of thinking you have to exercise the way you once did, exercise may never become a habit for you.
This past year, I had a major life change. For the past seven years, I have had a set schedule and although I changed my exercise with intensity and type, my schedule and routine were consistent. With a new schedule and different responsibilities, my way of thinking of when I should exercise had to change if I wanted to get in any type of work out. If I tried to do what I had done up until this point, I would have quit. It simply does not work now.
The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 3:1
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
I am in a new season of life and my old way of thinking needed to change. I can’t get frustrated because I can’t do what I once did. It’s a season to create new habits.
I’m curious. “What season of life are you in? Is it time to start forming new habits that will allow you to get the results that you want?”
