To a runner, a side stich is like a car alarm. It signifies something is wrong, but you ignore it until it goes away. ~Author Unknown

As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed as ignorant as you were at twenty-two, you’d always be twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It’s growth. It’s more than the negative that you’re going to die, it’s the positive that you understand you’re going to die, and that you live a better life because of it.

Today is July 1st. Today is your “I’ll start tomorrow.” Today is your “I’ll start on Sunday-so it’ll be the beginning of the week.” Today is your “I’ll start next month.” Use today to start if you haven’t. Start over if you had a less than spectacular June (me). And continue if you’ve been working hard since June and wish to continue. Eat healthy, but don’t deprive yourself. Workout, but don’t kill yourself. Use July to find what you love. Or use July to get into the kitchen and cook that healthy meal that you thought you could never do. Get on that treadmill, or that payment, or that elliptical, pick things up and put them down, over and over again. Go to that spin class, try out that free 14-day gym membership, try a cross fit class. Do You. Make Your Body. Work hard, but start today. It’s tomorrow. It’s next week. It’s next month. It’s Sunday. Let your successes of today power your successful month.
This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind…let it be something good.
