J.D. Roth just posted a very brave decision on Get Fit Slowly: he’s starting now.
A little backstory – J.D. writes for Get Rich Slowly, a blog about slow but sure paths to financial stability. He’s applying the same philosophy to his health.
For my part, I went to bed early last night. That doesn’t happen very often. I’m usually up until midnight or one o’clock writing. (I get up at 5:30 no matter what.) When I woke up this morning, I went for a walk. I grabbed a couple oranges and my iPod and headed out the door. It was a leisurely two-mile stroll through the neighborhood and not a brisk affair, but it was a walk.
What can I say? The post moved me. As did the user comment which prompted J.D. to get started:
With regard to when you should start your fitness program — you should start now. You should start today. You know that though. Would you advise someone who was racking up credit card debt and not dealing with the problem to wait until next year to do something about it? Even if you only lose a pound or two between now and January you’ll be further along than if you hadn’t started.
