Easy To Do. Easy Not To Do.

Easy to do. Easy not to do.
Recently I've been reading a book called The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. Throughout the book he makes that statement, "So easy to do. So easy not to do." Those are the things that make a difference in your life.

For me right now that easy thing to do is to workout and eat healthy. But at the same time it's so easy not to do those things! It's easy to stay in bed and keep hitting snooze. It's easy to pick up some fast food or a pre-made meal at the store. It's easy to take the elevator instead of using the stairs. 

I think part of the reason all those "unhealthy" habits are so easy is that it's what I was used to doing for so long. They've become ingrained in me, which makes this whole "trying to change to live a healthier lifestyle" thing really hard! There are times I want to give up and do the old easy thing instead of embracing the new easy thing.

Honestly, it's easy for me to find 30 minutes to complete my workout. It's easy for me to shop for healthier foods. It's easy for me to walk somewhere instead of driving. It just maybe takes a little more planning.

When you have goals though, and you are serious about those goals, you'll probably find that you are willing to put in that little bit of extra work. When you get serious about living healthier, you can find some extra time in your day to prepare a meal plan or fit in that extra workout.

When you are tempted to give up and stop working towards your goals remind yourself that it's easy to keep going. You just have to make the right choice.
