Working out is so easy for you. You’re so fit and you teach for a living. These are some of the comments I get when I inquire about why others don’t find their fun in fitness.
Let me drop some reality. I am not a naturally fit person. When I was going through my separation, now divorce. A svelt, sexy body became my purpose. I mean let’s face it who’s going to want a single mom of a toddler, at the time. But who can say no to a hot and toned mom. This was my mindset when I first decided to take “losing weight” to a obsessive level
Before this realization and complete focus of fight or flight, I had serious weight issues. Especially for my 5’5 frame I wasn’t healthy. I was in a pretty bad relationship in my twenties and I used food to remedy that confusion and “why me” mindset. But that’s another blog post for the future.
I have the hardest time working out. Some days it’s really easy and other days I self-defeating. If you don’t believe me come on over to Torisandra Fit . There you’ll see my always up and down yo-yoy weight loss and weight gain.
Seriously Cass where are we going with this. Well, let me get to it. Even though I fall I never stay down. I may go missing for a few months. But they never have to send out the search party.
If you can take anything away from this. Take this, it’s work. A kind of work that pays you in a way that is priceless. The hardest part of weight loss, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, are you ready for it?? It’s all MINDSET. That’s truly the defeat that is causing such obesity in our society.
If we all decided to take each day to turn one negative into a positive, that’s food for the soul and self-esteems.
Here is an amazing challenge
negative into a positive
2 negatives into a positives
3 negatives into a positives
4 negatives into a positives
You get the gist. The hope is by the time you get to 30 days negative thoughts will be less and positivity will be more. Once the love of yourself is achieved then the love of your health and wellness is just another envisioning and action away.
My saving grace.
Find your motivation.
What gets a smile on your face?
What makes you start dancing around?
Even if it means starting with something simple and out of your daily routine, that’s more than yesterday. Make the goal to do more.
Move more, love yourself more, and know and truly believe you deserve more.
