Don’t Lie to Yourself…

Written by Bridget on . Posted in Fabulous Fitness, Weight Loss

This morning as I completed yet another workout, I reflected upon my journey to date…

As I walked this morning indoors on the treadmill, I flicked through a fitness mag to help pass the time…. Sometimes I’m up for running, sometimes I’m up for pushing myself, but today I felt like taking it easy… I have learned the hard way that it is always best to LISTEN to my body…

There was an Inspire story in this magazine, about a 25 year old woman, who at the age of 13 was 146kg, had dangerously high blood pressure, and was in constant pain from her joint aches….

At some point her mum took her to Weight Watchers, and over a period of 3 years she SLOWLY lost 25kg…. It STAYED OFF 🙂

After that, she progressively got more and more into fitness and a healthy lifestyle and as she got older, she joined a gym, got herself a PT and continued her “healthy life” journey…

Her story really resonated with me, as I have been on much the same path….

Overweight as a child and using my strong will to NOT diet, but to change my LIFESTYLE for the good, FOREVER….!

I too decided to do it SLOWLY….No rush….There is no DESTINATION, no END POINT….

It is about a LIFELONG commitment to how you want to FEEL everyday…

It’s not always easy…..It HASN’T been easy…

I don’t wake up every morning feeling INSPIRED, MOTIVATED, ENERGISED and ON TOP of it all…

Sometimes I want to sleep in, I want to curl up and take it easy….

And sometimes, quite often these days, I DO!

But the thing is, I am REAL and HONEST with myself about what serves my health, energy and fitness and what doesn’t…

I don’t lie to myself believing that without my input I will miraculously maintain my health and fitness…

I am NOT a naturally slim person…. I didn’t even LIKE physical activity as a kid!

I LOVE to eat, and yes, I have a tendency to comfort eat…!

The ONLY way I can enjoy the health, energy and fitness that I do, like MOST people, is by PUTTING IN THE DAILY EFFORT….

There is NO NEED for gung-ho approaches, an all or nothing approach….

In fact I would CAUTION that this style of method will do nothing more than set you up for a yo-yo experience, or a situation in which you end up feeling like a “prisoner” to your “health/weight” regime….

Fearing you can NEVER stray from it….That your WHOLE life must revolve around it…

This, in a lot of ways can be just as bad, or worse than living as an overweight, unfit person….

There needs to be a balance….

There needs to be an honest, calm, rational perspective taken on the whole health/weight/fitness thing IF you are to become that NEW person that IS fit, healthy, energetic, at a comfortable weight forever after…

If you are to REALLY OWN your health and fitness you MUST realise that you are NOT a victim….

That you have CHOICES…

And as Denis Waitley shared with us, THIS is the greatest power in the world…

“You have been given the GREATEST power in the world, the power to choose”

So, from TODAY, I urge you to STOP lying to yourself….

You CAN change things….

You CAN become the fit, healthy, energetic person you dream of becoming…. The person you know you are inside….

All it takes is DECISION….. Commitment…. BEING REAL….

And MOST of all, it takes being REALLY KIND TO YOURSELF….

Because WITHOUT A DOUBT, the way you treat YOURSELF physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually IS what creates your results and reality in life…

YOU are the captain of the ship….

YOU are the author of the story…

What are you writing RIGHT NOW?? Where are you sailing??

Take a moment to STOP, REFLECT and DECIDE if you are taking yourself where you really want to go… 🙂

All my love,
