Promises such as buying a new phone or TV can be postponed but not promises on health. We think that we do not have enough time and convince ourselves for not keeping up the promises. If you can push yourself to devote some time, you can easily keep up your promises.
One such promise I made to myself in the year of 2015 was fitness. I got a partner for walking and gym. But she left very soon due to her personal commitments. I stopped going to the gym just one month after that as I got bored to go alone.
Then I started GM diet, but stopped it as I could not push myself even though I had done before. Then I started doing yoga. Initially it was tough to follow a routine, but I did giving up. I started doing Surya Namaskar 5-6 times a day along with few meditations. I replaced white sugar with jaggery whenever possible. My stamina started increasing day by day and I thought to include some high intensity workouts too. I started doing Bikini Body Mommy Challenge 5.0, a 90 day fitness program. It was really difficult to do the workout initially.
I also had to go through some unexpected issues like impacted wisdom tooth surgical removal, a ligament injury due to twisted ankle, smashed finger in a door and so on. Everything happened unexpectedly and they were completely out of my control. So, I had to go through the pains. Still, I resumed doing the workouts as soon as I got recovered. I have already completed 66 days of this program even though I took multiple breaks.
Initially I was feeling lazy to do it. Nowadays, I feel lazy if I am not doing it. So, I am doing the workouts as the first thing after sending my kid to school. I started including Leslie or Jessicca Smith walking workouts too.
I have already started great results. My stamina has increased so much. I am able to be active throughout the day. I am able to see weight loss too.
