That is part of my new mantra: "Today I am serious about being healthy, losing weight and being physically fit." Like most others I want to exercise and diet for one day and achieve my goals. Sort of like practicing the violin once and playing like Itzhak Perlman. Like that's gonna happen. So I finally got it through my aging brain that reaching my goal is going to take a whole lot of todays. Each day that I consciously choose to exercise and eat correctly will bring me closer to my goal. The more days I chose to be serious the faster I will reach my goal. Therefore Today I Am Serious.
