I come from a catholic family. Every year my parents used to give up something for lent (the run up to Easter). I never understood the symbology (is that even a real word, if not blame Dan Brown) of it, but I did get what it could do for someone on an individual level.
Prove to yourself you can go without something you like for a significant period of time (6 weeks for lent).
What I don’t get is all these people asking for sponsorship for giving up booze or fags for a month at this time of year. By all means give up and donate what you save to charity, but don’t plug other people their cash just because you’ve decided to give up one of your vices for a few weeks.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not tight, I donate to charities regularly and I’m happy to sponsor people who are doing something I think is a REAL challenge (marathon, triathlon, climb a mountain).
Anyway, what with Christmas being another major religious festival (it is, honest, it not just about John Lewis adverts and the poxy Coca Cola truck), you have the opportunity to use this time to challenge yourself.
You could challenge yourself to drop some weight in the run up to Christmas, or improve you fitness significantly (or both).
But one thing you can DEFINITELY do is not give up on your fitness over the Christmas period.
The number of people who say “I might as well start in January” or “I just don’t have the time”. Both statements make no sense and are basically lies that people tell themselves, be honest “I can’t be bothered because I don’t really want the results”.
If that’s how it is then so be it. But if you lie, you’re only lying to yourself.
If you DO want to drop a significant amount of weight AND improve your fitness for Christmas, the final 10×10 Challenge (http://www.10x10challenge.co.uk/contact.html) starts next Monday. With the average weight loss being 9lbs versus the average weight gain over Christmas being 5lbs, you have to ask yourself why you haven’t signed up?
If it’s because you plan on using one of those excuses above, I highly recommend you consider hitting the unsubscribe link below.
