I’m a little late today posting the blog so I’m going to make this a slightly meatier post than the usual Fitness Meme Friday quickie.
Check out the following link and the accompanying graphic below to imagine what happens when you make just a very small positive change every day in your life: http://jamesclear.com/marginal-gains.
The basic idea is simple. Just by making a 1% improvement every day, you will eventually aggregate those gains into much larger gains. You won’t notice them immediately (who notices when they’ve saved a dollar?) but over time, you sure will (because 100 days of saving a dollar turns into 100 dollars). Fitness and health habits work in exactly the same way. Trust me on this.
Yesterday’s #every48 workout: I was insanely tired yesterday afternoon (maybe that’s one reason I know I should really work out in the morning – or maybe it’s residual Boston Marathon fatigue still working its way through my system). I got to the gym and warmed up on the bike, then did a weight training routine for about 20 minutes. Better than nothin’.
