Alcohol free for February

Share This Post

It is amazing how much we Aussies rely on alcohol for a good time. Recruiting for an alcohol free month was like asking someone (devout!) to change their religion. Reactions varying from indignant to riotous laughter were the order of the day. Now seriously, if wanting a drink becomes this intense then I would suggest there is a problem. And hey February is the shortest month so…. it is not too late to join us. So what if you had a few already, start now and roll till the end of the month. And for those of you who started with good intentions and hit a hurdle, get back on the wagon. This little exercise is about self discipline, delaying gratification and interupting a potentially damaging habit. There a good things a foot from this. I was chatting with a client who is committed to the challenge, even to the point of not putting beer on the onions for his weekend barby. Our weekly measures revealed 1 cm off the waist and 1.5 kg of weight down. The body sometimes needs a little jolt of something different. Don’t get stale. Mix it up and questions that voice inside that seems to command and not consider the consquences of being on ‘autopilot’.

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
