"Maybe if I wore clothes that fit, I wouldn't feel so fat."
- but those clothes used to fit
"Maybe if I worked out, I wouldn't be fat."
- but I don't have time
"Working out is great, but being toned and slim doesn't happen over night."
- I want to not be fat...NOW!
"Maybe if I stopped eating all of the bad stuff, I would lose the fat."
- but it tastes sooo good
Like me, you are not the first, and like me, you won't be the last!
It takes time, effort and dedication to change your lifestyle to one that is healthy. In reality, my lifestyle is really not that unhealthy. But of course, I do have some habits that put me in the place to be where I am today.
Well, I would say I did pretty good this week making conscious decisions.
I did learn one very important thing this week ....
I need to go slow otherwise I will hurt myself. Giving your muscles time to wake up and recover is necessary and not the end of the world.
For example, phase I was the 3Ms. More sleep, more water and more movement. I needed to keep it simple just because of all the other stuff happening in my life. I gave myself 3 weeks (21 days) to meet this goal. I have met this goal but it doesn't mean that I no longer focus on these core things.
Phase II? I haven't defined it to be honest. I guess Phase II can be ... being serious about my health. Being aware of my daily caloric intake and output.
Remembering, it goes beyond thought.
Action is required!
