Sometimes procrastination slows down my goals - so I use this mantra "Every second counts!" It helps me remember to live life NOW. It helps me squash lies like, "Oh this one little bite won't hurt" or "I will start Monday" or "That was so good I should have a second helping". Every second counts!
Don't let fear keep you from doing the things you want to do. You may be concerned about what other people will think. Don't let other people dictate how you live your life. Do what makes you happy! Live your life to the fullest! Make every second count.
Every time I get up from my computer to go to the restroom, I do intervals of 20 seconds jumping jacks,10 seconds rest; 20 seconds high knees, 10 seconds rest; 20 seconds jump rope followed by 10 seconds rest. And finally, I do 20 squats or 20 wall pushups. It wakes me up and allows me to add a few extra fitness minutes into my day. It really adds up.
