It’s Not an Accident

A few weeks ago a friend of mine posted this as his status:

“No one improves by accident…”

You don’t accidentally get a better relationship with your husband.

You don’t accidentally become a better parent.

You don’t accidentally develop deeper friendships.

You don’t accidentally excel as an employee.

You don’t accidentally become stronger and healthier.

That is why we must keep working day by day – whether that is working out, eating well, working on relationships, getting better at our job, or anything else at which we wish to improve.

It takes work. It takes practice. It takes time. It takes an effort.

You can’t expect things to magically change for the better if you aren’t willing to put the time and effort into it.

I have been working at being healthy for years. It is a process. I will always want to be better, and I know that takes me putting my hand to the plow and not looking back. Sometimes I have bumps in the road (like knee surgery) that knock me off track for a bit, but I fight back.

Do I want to eat pizza and ice cream every night for dinner? Absolutely! Do I actually eat pizza and ice cream every night for dinner? Absolutely not!

Do I want to sleep in rather than get up and exercise? Duh! Do I actually sleep in and skip my workouts? Not unless I am sick as a dog!

Yesterday I finished a 5-day challenge that I offered to 10 people in the area. At the end of the 5 days of workouts and a specific jump-start diet of healthy food and Shakeology, I am down another 3.8 pounds and 2 more inches. That brings my total since starting PiYo 4 weeks ago to 7.8 pounds and 10-3/4 inches.

These results are not accidental! I am working my butt off (quite literally) to get them!

Real change in any area requires real work.

Don’t think you can get to where you want to be without the work. It is not an accident.


If you are interested in these kinds of results, send me a message. AND there will be another opportunity for a 5-day challenge at the end of August for those in the Greenville, Illinois area.

PiYo or 21-Day Fix Challenge group starting Monday, August 4.

New FREE 30-Day Challenge starting August 11.
