I’m okay If I give something my all and sink my heart and soul into it and still lose. I accept it, I claim it, and I learn from it. I take notes on how I can revamp my strategy and guarantee a win. If I should lose again, then I will revise, repeat, and shoot for the win.
When I set up a weightloss challenge or a muscle-building challenge, I give myself 90 days. If I don’t see a change within those 90 days, then I revise my plan and look at other options that may lead to a victory.
But here’s the tricky part. It’s hard to get past the daily feeling of failure. Depression sets in whenever you walk past a mirror and catch a glimpse of all the areas you hate, or even worse, you see the scale. When you see it, what do you do? Jump on it, of course, and a few curse words just might leave your lips.
I don’t know about you, but I would look at the scale and instantly feel defeated. Then I would get pissed because my knees were hurting, my back was sore, and my feet hated me. Yet I looked the same so, I would shout, why the hell am I putting myself through torture? How hard can it be to drop 10 pounds? Why does it feel like I’m going around and around in circles?
For the LOVE of God, I just want to win this time around!
We all would like to win, but what are you willing to change to guarantee that win?
How bad do you want it?
I know you might think it’s impossible to lose weight during the holidays, but it isn’t. Limit your sweets and alcohol consumption. Save the good stuff for the weekend and give your body a break Monday – Friday. Your body deserves a chance to recover and be given a fair chance to feel good.
What if you woke up every morning and put makeup on a dirty face, and then the next day you did the same thing. You then continue this insane process for the next 5 days. What do you think your face would like? And more importantly, how would your face feel?
This scenario doesn’t make sense, but yet we think it’s okay to do this to our body.
Before you start your makeup routine, you wash your face with water and cleanse out your pores. This is the same attention your body needs. Every morning you should get up, drink water and replace all the nutrients you lose during the night. Then find a workout plan that works for your fitness level.
If your plan doesn’t work, REVISE AND REPEAT!
Play these tunes and start fresh.
