You only get one chance to take care of your body… get it right!
What’s important is when you have that moment of sanity and you ask yourself “what the hell am I doing?” You get yourself back on track.
It is vital that your whys for being on your wellness journey are more powerful than all of the excuses you can muster for why not.
Whether you believe the “experts” or not, doesn’t really matter. I am living proof that it works. I lost 40 pounds by doing three things every day: work out, stay within my calorie budget eating 5-6 meals a day, and drink plenty of water.
I attribute my success to hard work at the gym and tracking my calories daily. As a result I felt in control. When I was overweight I never felt like I was in control.
You are the lump in my potatoes. Yes, my lumpy potato-butt.
The difference now is that I know what to do. When things get tough instead of turning to Ben & Jerry for comfort I hit the gym for an endorphins and serotonin boost.
Where is that damn fitbattle ball that I lost sight of? (you know… keep your eyes on the ball! be the ball!)
I’ve learned that you cannot (as hard as you try) compartmentalize your life. If one thing is off balance (or not quite right) it throws everything else off.
