For me, losing weight is all about mindset. If I overindulged this or that weekend or mindlessly munch throughout the Superbowl, I don’t throw in the towel. I make sure my next meal is healthy, drop the guilt and move on. It’s simple.
I’m finding more and more lately that I refuse to give into pressure. I guess my personality has always been kinda willful compared to the majority of people. When I think of body fat and losing it, I don’t panic…I commit and transform. It’s only body fat, it will come off. It’s fixable…just set your mind to it. Your potential is limitless…right?!
Oh, but frustration, is a choice. Especially when you’ve only lost 1 pound this week. Often, I remind myself to choose a better feeling. Instead, I choose motivation! Today I am motivated to discover answers that work for my body and help me meet my goal of physical and mental fitness. I turn away from frustration and focus on motivation to achieve overall fitness to the best of my ability. As so often before, I let go of believing change is hard (or difficult/challenging), I discover choosing motivation is easy. As easy as allowing sand to slip through my fingers. Letting-it-go. Ah, relief!
Perhaps you have been experiencing frustration. Are you willing to turn away right now and focus on a better feeling thought? Even anger is better feeling (higher on the emotional scale) than frustration. Where there is frustration, somewhere inside of you is resistance. You must rid yourself of that resistance in order to move forward. Choose another feeling, any other feeling and move on.
ATTITUDE is everything.
The march to personal freedom, can be won only by declaring our intent and independence, stepping into our personal power, and battling through self-doubt and the distractions of the day until full victory is won. Motivation comes from a lot of different sources, if you looking for a book on it, try this one. Check out “The Motivation Manifesto” on Amazon. It is poetic yet fierce—motivating us to free ourselves from fear and take back our lives once and for all. What’s not to love about that?!
So there you have it. I would love to chat!
What motivates you?
