Meme Week Friday: Fitness doesn’t come overnight. And that is the point.

[Every48.com is on hiatus this week while I’m cooking up some new content for the holiday season. This week I’m featuring a favorite “fitness meme of the week” post every day from the collection of memes on Every48.com. Enjoy – and then get out there and get your workout on.]

It will take time. Do it anyway.

This morning, reflecting on how long it sometimes takes to get great things accomplished, I’m kind of loving this meme:

Couldn't be more true. What do you want to accomplish? Have you not started because you'll be "X years old' when it's done? Trust me, you're going to be X years old someday anyway, so why not go for it now? (Image courtesy of TK)

That is all. And I need to remember that message this week, because my schedule this week has been haywire…and that’s resulted in my missing workouts – yikes.

One secret strategy I’ve put together over the years when it comes to my health is this: If I can’t work out at all (say, because of a long travel schedule or a long workday that makes it completely impossible to fit in a workout – and that type of situation happens about twice a year, by the way, so this can’t be one of those “regular excuse” outs that I give myself), then I make sure to be as spot-on with healthy eating as I possibly can be, and I make sure I get in some calisthenics (commercial plug: the Daily Dozen in Fit by Nature is perfect for this) when I get home – or before I head out for the day – and I get back to business as soon as I can with regular, vigorous workouts.

Back to business. That’s my theme for today. Have a great Friday – see you next week.
