“Too soon we get old and too late we get smart.” #truth
My mother use to say that to me every time I messed up and like most teenagers, I never paid much attention to it, but obviously those words stayed with me and sunk in and now I repeat those same words.
January is a tough month. The holiday aftermath of excessive eating and the realization that you spent too much. Year after year, people keep repeating the same kind of behaviour…you know you have.
I always try to write things to inspire, motivate and encourage you to be the best you. I will be your biggest cheerleader but, in the end, as always the action comes down to you.
What are you willing to do to make change happen?
Your goals need to be clear. The end results and how you get there are up to you. You can’t blame anyone, or your circumstances.
If you want change you have to make change happen. Yes, you might have some set backs but again, its on you to regroup and charge forward. That’s the difference between being a biggest loser and a biggest winner!
I’ll give you some examples because a few of you will think this pep talk doesn’t apply to you.
One bad meal is not the reason you are carrying extra weight. It’s a lot of bad meals. One bad meal means you have to reset. You smarten up, drink your water and make better choices the next meal.
Skipping your favourite exercise class has not got you where you. Ignoring exercise or half-assing your work outs and treating them like a social get together has quadrupled the time to change. Winners don’t complain about being too tired….they workout that day even though they are exhausted. (You ate it now negate it!)
Your credit cards aren’t at the max because you spent a bit too much at Christmas. It’s consistent shopping that got you there. You didn’t pay down your debt before adding more debt.
Beating yourself up, feeling guilty, sad, mad won’t fix any of your problems.
I posted this question/statement on Facebook “It’s our choices that make us fat, not McDonalds. Do you agree or disagree?”
Most people replied that they agreed. Why is it easy to acknowledge that question but you cave when it’s time to make the decision of good vs bad? You know right from wrong.
“Worry drains the mind of much of its power and sooner or later it injuries the soul.”
You owe it to yourself to be the best you. Why settle? Why go through life always wishing things were different.
- It’s 2015. Be a “doer”! Do the things that will make you and your life incredible.
- Excess weight, literally weighs you done–be done with fighting that battle.
- Worry, anger, negativity is not who you are.
- Go into today, this week, this month and year ahead with a different mindset.
2015 is another chapter in the book of your life. You control the story, the character, the adventures and you write the ending.
I would love to hear from you, what topics, subjects can I write about to help you in your journey. Leave me a comment.
