When Bill Gates and Warren Buffet first met, Gates’ mother hosted a dinner party for them.
She asked each person sitting at the table to share what they believed was the single most important factor contributing to their success in life.
Without missing a beat, Gates and Buffet gave the same one word answer: “Focus.”
So why am I sharing this with you? I think we can all learn from this even if we’re not among the richest people in the world.
You see, we have about another month of summer before we get into our routines again.
Before we know it, the kids will be back at school and our social calendars will slow down.
This isn’t at all meant to be a guilt trip but what you do in terms of nutrition and exercise will have an impact on your fitness level and goals for the fall.
Sure, you may not be as dialed in with your fitness in the thick of summer. But that doesn’t mean you have to let go of it completely.
Here are a few things you can do so you don’t go backwards.
Get workouts in where you can. Once or twice per week will go along way. I’ve made the mistake of thinking that because my workout schedule wasn’t perfect, I shouldn’t bother. That is a limiting and false belief. Even 10 minute workouts add up!
You can also plan in some healthy meals. Even if you indulge at parties, there are a lot of other meals where you can eat more supportively. Many people make the same mistake as I described above when it comes to nutrition. They lose momentum as a result of a chaotic schedule so they mail it in.
My challenge to you is to have some fitness goals in the month of August even if they aren’t as aggressive.
