100 Days to a Better You! – Day 10

Day 10 –

I have increased my daily push-ups and sit-ups routine by 10, so now I’m doing 35 of each in the morning and in the evening. I plan to increase it by 10 each week. I know what your thinking, “What are you going to so when you get to 100?!” Simple, the same thing I did at 25. Not really sure if I will hold steady at 100 or increase it by 10 each week. Either way, what I do now, I plan to continue even after these 100 days. The goal is to develop “good,” “life changing” habits that will carry on long after these 100 days have past.

What I am understanding about myself through this 100 day plan is that strength much like anything else is built over time. I was once asked a question that was a little difficult to not only answer but understand. I was asked, “How do you eat an elephant?” Stunned by the ridiculousness of the question, I responded “You don’t.” That was the wrong answer. The right answer is, “One bite at a time.” If you think about it, the analogy is pretty good actually. An elephant is way to big to be eaten in one bite but you can eventually eat the entire elephant if you eat it one bite at a time.

That is how progress is measured, day by day. I too wish I could press a fast-forward button and get to day 100 but since it isn’t possible, I’ll be taking bites of my plan daily until I devour the entire thing. You cannot reasonably expect to workout for one day and magically have a six pack the next; it takes consistency, persistence, patience & discipline.

If you continue to work at something daily, over time you will become better than you were the day you started. No matter what the goal is, if you want to be great, you have to work on it every day. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop there. Once you have it, if you want to keep it, you have to work twice as hard. Take these 100 days to focus on the tasks you can do daily to get you closer to your must outcomes on Day 100.
