Yesterday You Said Tomorrow.

This morning, I came across a great Nike ad. It’s just four words:

Yesterday you said tomorrow.

The ad certainly resonates – and it may sound familiar to you.

When it comes to fitness, we’re often full of good intentions. It can be an intention to join a gym, attend a fitness class, download a workout program or to start running again. But our intentions don’t always meet action.

The excuses come up. For a lot of us, it’s about time. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. Or maybe it’s about insecurities. I’ll join a gym when I lose 5 pounds. Or maybe it’s about fatigue. I’d hit the gym but I just don’t have the energy today. The excuses are innumerable.

And so we put it off… until tomorrow.

If we spend our lives waiting for the ideal circumstances to achieve our fitness goals, we’ll wait forever. Instead of paralyzing ourselves with these excuses, we just need to take the first step – even if the conditions don’t feel perfect. Maybe you’re still busy, insecure or tired – but, by exercising, you’ll extend your life (and thus have more time), build confidence and increase your energy. It’s win-win, so what are you waiting for?

Today is the tomorrow that you promised yourself yesterday. So get started. Right now.

  1. Hi Davey,
    What a great saying and so so true!

    I want to thank you for your great fitness videos. In the last few weeks I have started to exercise most days of the week. its usually only 15-30mins but i figure its a start. You have inspired me to get that body that I always wanted. I am aiming to get my body fat % from 15/18% (not exactly sure as i used a calculator online and my scales) to 10%. I really need to get my diet right. I think i might just have to start shopping with my parents and start cooking (yes i still live at home).
    Could you do a weight loss video on youtube. check out Mike Chang sixpackabs channel (his weight loss one, can’t remember what it is called) to see what i mean. I really enjoy watchng you as i think you are funny and i want a body like yours rather then his.
    could you also do some videos on some meals to cook for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    I am really considering buying one if not all of your workout programs.
    Keep up the awesome work and i will continue watching your videos.
    Just so you know I am a straight guy and think all your videos are awesome on all 3 of your channels.

    Take care,
    James =)

  2. This is a great inspirational quote. Even your last sentence is a great one… today is the tomorrow that you promised yourself yesterday.

    I was sat here surfing and found myself talking myself out of the gym tonight. Didn’t even realize I was making excuses at first! Now I’m inspired again!

    I hurt my back a couple of years ago and ended up putting a couple of stone of fat due to inactivity (and comfort eating!), and am not trying to lose it. I’m 1 and a half stone down, so am almost back down. So tonight I’m going to move one step closer to my target.

    Thanks Davey
