The only cliff I’m concerned about is one that should be on your radar, too–the “fitness cliff.”
We’re entering that time of year when it’s easy to forget about working out and eating healthy. It’s getting colder in many parts of the nation, and many people are making holiday plans, which usually means travel (the NYC gas chaos notwithstanding) and food!
Add into that equation the aftermath of Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy and the devastation she left behind. Many people are still seeking their new normal, even those who may have been least affected. None of us are taking the simple things–like electricity–for granted, not even our kids, many of whom endured their first real experience of being “without.”
This new feeling can be overwhelming, and can make it difficult to get back to old routines, even those that are good for us.
Don’t let that happen. Sandy (or whatever storm you have recently endured) is gone. Too many are still recovering. Many never will.
Don’t let the effects prevent you for taking care of yourself. Pick yourself up and get back into the gym, or on the road. Stay positive, and be helpful to others.
That way, you won’t find yourself on the edge of the fitness cliff. Conquer it instead.
