I hope you have been having an awesome holiday season with your family!
Christmas morning was so fun as our 19 month old daughter Matea is finally old enough this year to open her gifts and dig into all the goodies from Santa.
That’s the real joy of being a dad during Christmas is seeing your child’s face light up when they tip toe out to see what Santa left under the tree Christmas morning.
…and of course she had just as much fun with some of the boxes than the gifts themselves!
I know you are probably feeling bad about all the eating and drinking you have been doing over the holidays.
But guess what…It’s OK.
Trust me I know how you feel. I ate and drank too much as well. But I am not worried and I don’t want you to worry either.
What I want you to do is turn these feelings into ACTION. Today is the last day of the year! Let’s put 2009 behind us…
I know you still have New Years Eve to contend with but you don’t have to wait until the clock strikes 12 to make a commitment.
Start TODAY and ask yourself.
“What are my goals? What are my behaviors?
Do my behaviors match my goals?”
What you did in 2009 doesn’t matter – the year is GONE. Just be aware of how effective your behaviors were in reaching your goals.
The real question you should ask yourself is what will the next year hold for you?
So lets get to work on making this your best year ever!
Want to know what workout routine has been working better for me as a busy dad than anything I have been doing all year?
With a new year upon us we all try to start off with a sense of renewal regarding our health and happiness.
Regarding the Dad Fitness SystemI have been experimenting with a new approach to being a strong and fit dad.
With feedback from you living the Dad Fitness lifestyle and my personal experience I have been tweaking the program to give you even faster results.
Let’s just call it Dad Fitness 2.0…
The biggest mistake you can make with your workout routine is to keep doing what you’re doing.
You are right in thinking that consistency is the key to long term resultsbut preventing that dreaded plateau where your body shaping results come to a screeching halt is the real key to life long fitness.
But none of this means anything if you can’t adapt your workouts to your lifestyle.
Do you want to know how to stay consistent with your workouts while getting results week after weekmonth after month?
Be like water!
I will let the great Bruce Lee explain…
“Don’t get set into one formadapt it and build your ownand let it growbe like water.
Empty your mindbe formlessshapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cupit becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash.
Be watermy friend.”
This is what the NEW Dad Fitness workouts is all about in 2010being like water and adapting the workouts to our evolving role as busy dads.
