    Ha! I liked your post! It was compelling and, in the end, gave a life lesson about working out, fitness, and more. A lesson that will stick with me– far better than if you had not included the allegory.

    At first, I was all “what the heck? Why are we talking about a Bridge game when you promised some fitness advice?”

    But like I said, I was engaged, and it was painless, in fact, FUN to read. I love the story about your grandpa, and how your family always plays cards after dinner.

    I’m glad you took the risk (another card player reference) with your blog and went for it with your dialogue, an act of bravery that matches your good advice– go for it, all the way!

    Good job.

      Thanks Diana! I love being able to tell stories and take some seemingly unrelated life lessons, and turn them into food for thought in the realm of fitness 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!

    Very good advice. Decide what it is you want to achieve. Decide how you are going to achieve your goal. Stay with your plan for achieving you goal and never waiver from your plan and your goal will be achieved sooner not later.
    Get out of your comfort zone and stay out of it until you achieve your goal. Do what is necessary to achieve your goal even if it is a little unpleasant because once you achieve your goal you will realize your sacrifices were all worth it.

    Awesome post Megan, I can really relate to this.
    There are some parts of my life where I’m all in and my consistent effort gets consistent results and then just a few areas are really lagging and it’s having a huge impact
    I guess when you don’t have the belief in the outcome you “send the child” and then you end up getting the same result which reinforces the old belief that it’s only worth sending the child in the first place,
    Thank you for highlighting this with such a great story, I need constant reminders so I’m bookmarking your site.
    All the best,

    Hi Megan,

    That was a great analogy you used with the cards. At first or midway through the story of the cards I thought to myself…Wait a minute…I thought this was about excercise. But by the end of the story it all made since to me. Definitely kept me reading. Thanks for sharing!
