I’m sure you read this subject line and thought “1 thing? I have a million things to do today!”

But that’s exactly my point.

When it comes to getting in shape and feeling your best, so often I find clients in are in a rush to get the best results in 30 days instead of 30 years.

The problem with that though is that no matter what tip, tactic or strategy you use for 30 days, if you quit doing that 1 thing you’ll start back at square one.

So instead, make it a goal to start doing 1 thing EVERY DAY that could move you forward towards your goal.

Instead of a tip, tactic or strategy this would be called a lifestyle change.

Start with something simple that becomes a routine that you will do for the rest of your life because that’s how long you’re going to be living in YOUR body!


Until they find a way to move your brain, heart, soul and faith into another vessel, this is it. This is the body you have to work with and live with.

So act like it and start taking care of it!

But instead of thinking of your health as a chore, think of it as a responsibility just like doing the dishes, taking out the trash or brushing your teeth.

If you aren’t taking care of these responsibilities on a daily basis it starts to smell, you keep piling on more and it becomes overwhelming to start.

Instead think of a person you know in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s or 80’s who is happy and in great health…

It’s possible this person you thought of might workout at a gym, but it’s EVEN MORE LIKELY that they have built some form of exercise into their daily routine.


Things like:

  • bootcamp (44% of my clients are over 50 years old)
  • walking the neighbor or walking the dog
  • swimming
  • walking the mall
  • yoga
  • Silver Sneakers
  • golf
  • tennis
  • bowling
  • biking

This list could go on and on, but the point I’m trying to make is that the consistent effort towards improving your health is more important than what you do randomly.

What you do isn’t as important as how often you do it.

So stop thinking of your fitness as ‘all or nothing’ and switch your mindset to ‘all or something’.

Because as long as you do something for yourself daily to invest in your health you’ll continue to build momentum.

And just like with investing money, your results will soon start compounding!
