A goal is a dream with it’s work boots on
We have all kinds of goals that we want to accomplish in life. However, if you are not willing to do the work to get there, than it is simply a dream, a hope, or a wish. If you want to accomplish something that truly gets you excited when you think about it, then why do you sell yourself short at achieving it?
When it comes to weight loss and fitness, I see it time and time again. New clients contact me and they are so excited and are willing to do whatever you tell them to do to get to where they want to be. They don’t want to take it slow, they want to jump in 100% and guess what? That burning desire starts to fade because of two reasons 1) they wanted to change too much at one time 2) they got unmotivated to do the work.
Listen to me NOW… Motivating yourself to do the work it takes comes 100% from you. Don’t wait for that “something” to come over you and think that it is going to drive you 100 % of the way through your journey and DO NOT rely on others to keep you motivated. This is your responsibility. Motivation isn’t a onetime thing; it is something you decide on daily, sometimes even hourly.
You may love the feeling of exercise but I promise you no matter how much you love it, you will not be motivated to do it every day for the rest of your life. This is where you have to put your big boy or girl pants on and show up anyway. This is where you have to have enough self love for yourself to put your health first no matter what plans have changed that day. No matter what your work load is, the issues you have at home, the money issues, or the relationship issues, you have to show up for yourself anyway.
Nobody in this world can love you like you can. That self love and self respect is what is going to keep your self- promises, nobody else can do that for you. Stop letting yourself down and do what you set out to do. You won’t see changes every day, heck you may not see them every week BUT I promise you changes are happening. Please STOP giving up on yourself or making excuses. Too many people take their health for granted and it saddens me to my very core. You have been blessed with this body and a strong will (trust me we all have a very strong will to do what we want to do), and you are wasting it away.
I promise you if you do not start making the time for your health now, you will face a day where you wish you could go back and make different choices.
Start slow, it doesn’t have to be an hour of exercise, just start moving more. Look deep into yourself and ask yourself why making yourself a priority is so difficult for you to do? Are you depressed? Do you need to speak to someone? Why do you not think you are as important as everything and everyone else in your life? This may be where you need to start in order to make the changes needed in your health.
My mission is life is to encourage everyone to love themselves enough to take care of their health so that they can live the lives they deserve and want. Don’t take your health for granted, you are worth so much more..
