September is probably my favorite month of the year. Milder weather, a more “normal” schedule and routine, and opportunities to get back on track with your health and fitness.

How did your fitness goals work out over the summer?

If you were inconsistent with your workouts and/or went a little overboard with your eating … don’t beat yourself up.

It happens … and you’re not alone.

The good news is, September is a great time to get back into a fitness routine.

Soon, the air will be a little chillier … kids will be back in school … and work schedules will be a little more normal.

With more structure in our work and family lives, it’ll be easier to put structure back into your fitness.

But … I want to caution you …

It can also be easy and tempting to come up with reasons why we can’t.

And like clockwork, this is the time of year when the same person who told me they didn’t have time to work out over the summer because the kids were home from school … will tell me they don’t have time to work out in September because the kids are back in school.

Don’t tell yourself stories that aren’t true.

Remember .. you’re in control of your time and your health.

And all you have to do today is do one thing that will move you closer to your goals.

Then, do something tomorrow.

Repeat that long enough and you’ll not only be back on track … you’ll be happy with the results.
