No one can force you to put in the work! You have to want it for yourself.
I felt like a truck had run over me when I woke up. My throat was sore, I was lightheaded, and the only thing that sounded good was my pillow. I felt so bad that I thought I had COVID. After a negative test, I realized I was just a little tired. So I jumped up, made eggs, spinach, and rice, and drank 35 ounces of water. Then I made myself get up and move!!!
Are you tired?
I don’t care. Get up and move!!!!!
You don’t need to compare yourself to your best friend, neighbor, husband, wife, sister, brother, uncle, or auntie. Instead, think about where you want to be physically and compare how much better you are TODAY than you were YESTERDAY.
Every day that you choose yourself, YOU win!
How to get started
- Make small goals
- Stay hydrated and drink 60 ounces or more of water EVERYDAY
- Eat well-balanced meals. Choose food that will give you energy without sugar crashes.
- Sleep Sleep Sleep
- Listen to your body and stretch when needed. Yoga is the best.
How to maintain
Believe in yourself! Stop taking shortcuts to lose weight. Think about it this way; every time you take a shortcut, you will put the weight you lost back on plus 5-10 pounds. The reason for this is due to you destroying your metabolism by yoyo dieting.
It is crucial for you to get in shape the right way. So first things first, THROW away your scale and get up and move!
Stop telling yourself that you’re too TIRED to do something good for yourself. We are all privileged to be alive and to be able to move. Thousands upon thousands of people are bedridden and will never get the chance to do what you are DREADING.
You GET to do something good for yourself, so don’t let today get away—no more excuses. You are not too tired to move for 30 minutes.
