Now one of the things you have to remember when you are on a journey, time to time you will stop to take a break or a rest stop. So the last few days I was not writing I was taking a break lol.
I will tell you what I did, because then you will see that even when you are on a break you still adhere to the guidelines, so that when you return you do not have to make up lost ground. Because that would be counter productive. So while I was on break this is what I did that contributed to the success of my fitness journey.
I think last we spoke I was on a hibernation because of the weather change. So on my days off I did continue to eat my high fiber cereal, General Mills, Fiber One, along with walnuts, banana, soy milk, coconut milk, yeah and I did eat some candy. My weapon of choice was the Life Saver gummy rings. I choose those because there was not fat in them. Although they did have sugar I could at least control how many I ate at one sitting verses eating the whole bag at one time. Now there was a time that I would unconsciously eat a bag of junk in one sitting. I found out that that type of behavior can lead to weight gain, and feeling lethargic, and just not motivated. So while it may give you an immediate pleasure, the price you pay for that is not worth the effort you will have to exert to remove it and the bad behavior.
It is actually your behavior you have to change in order to effect change in your bodily appearance. So if your ultimate goal is the have an improved outer appearance, then you have to change your actual thoughts you have about what you really want. If it is more important to enjoy your food pleasures whenever you want then those are the results that you will see in 2 weeks, 4 months or a year from now. But if your goal is to burn off some fat, build lean sexy muscles, get your BMI body mass index under control, be able to jog if you choose, climb 3 or 4 flights of stairs without being winded, having control over food choices, understanding your food choice, and what that will do to your goal, if these are the things you prefer in 2 weeks, 4 months or a year from now, then you have to recognize a lot of your results are coming from the thoughts and images you hold in your mind. You first have to change those images, and really believe it, no matter what may come. You have to see yourself finishing the goal, crossing the finish line, being the best you can be. And that happens with each decision you make daily about healthy food choices, exercise, and taking time to enjoy your body.
It is like you are sculpting out a master piece. You are the lump of clay, rock, fat, whatever you see yourself as, and then you become the artist, architect, designer of what your new piece of clay, rock or fat will look like in the future. Because you become the piece of art. So get going, create the body you want, don’t delay, it is worth the ride and the accomplishment of the goal.
Enjoy Your Body,
& Become Fit & Empowered
