Welcome to Day 4 of the Lose Belly Fat Quickly/Computer Butt Challenge. (<– If you're just joining us, click here to see what this is all about and what it has to do with Internet Marketing.)

So, what does all of this have to do with our work and with productivity? I asked Fat Loss Quickie Scott for some research, so he sent me this today:
Here's a quote from a study on 200 desk workers…
Professor McKenna found that those who built exercise into their work day experienced positive effects on their productivity. Exercise helped to re-energise and improve their concentration, as well as making them feel calmer and more able to solve problems.
This work builds on the large volume of research being conducted in the Active Lifestyles research centre at Leeds Met.
I guess when our bodies are slugs — our brains are, too.
According to the comments left on the blog the last few days, I know that several of us here have already started experiencing the effects of this – by reporting better clarity and in GETTING MORE DONE!
So, kick it!
Be sure to check in here today with your progress, concerns, and feedback. Scott's been AMAZING at helping us all through this first week. I know that'll make the difference to help us all stick through this first month so we can get totally hooked on the results and make this a life-long habit.
As my friend, Aileen Bennett, says – It doesn't take 21 days to develop a habit. It takes one moment when you commit to the change.
For instance, how many new smokers do you see coughing up a lung, saying “only 20 more days until I'm committed to smoking”? That's just silly. Why should a good habit be any different than a bad one?
In fact, I'll invite her over here to comment on that one. 🙂 She's actually one of the reasons why I'm committed to this challenge. I want to buy one of her ‘Be You: You are Amazing' shirts, but they run small so I have to shrink a bit to get one and have it look CUTE on me! Aileen – you hear that? You influenced me, too! (Shout out to Aileen!)
All right guys. Let's find 10 minutes today to get healthier so we can enjoy the LIFESTYLE that we're working towards.
((hugs)) to all.
