It’s hard doing the work.
No one said doing something worthwhile was easy. Nothing good comes for free.
I try to live by the saying “decide, commit, succeed”, because it’s so true if you just think about it.
A few months ago I was stuck in a trap of sorts. I was unhappy with who I was…physically, and of course that took a toll on me mentally and emotionally. I had been working out for a couple of months but didn’t see a difference in my physique. I was eating a not so low carb diet but thought that was ok since I was dedicated to working out.
Something had to change. But I was too down in the dumps and too tired for change. I wasn’t too tired to whine about how I felt tho…..whine whine whine.
It’s a vicious circle.
You are unhappy with yourself, you are exhausted and feel sluggish from the extra weight your body is carrying…you are too tired to do anything physical when you get home….how do you ever get out of it???
(this is a conversation I had with a friend the other day)
You just DO.
You come to a point where you have had enough. A point where you can’t take it anymore. But you need to reach that point on your own, within yourself.
What’s that saying?
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Something needs to change!
Just start. Make a change, no matter how small. If you are committed to making a change…you will.
They say that it takes 30 days to make or break a habit. I don’t know who they are…but it sounds good 😉
People actually look at me and call me a bitch, or say they are jealous, or “feel sorry” for me cause my clothes don’t fit. Sarcasm anyone? lol
I know all this is said in jest.
But sometimes I just wanna say…whatever!!
I did not get to here…where I am right now by doing nothing. Where I am did not come easy…and it’s still not easy. I would LOVE to be one of those people who can eat anything and not work out and not gain an ounce of weight.
But I am not that person.
And so I did the calculations…
In order for me to succeed…these are the things I need to do. I need to eat healthy and I need to work out. If I do those two things it equals personal success.
It’s the easiest math dontcha think?
The theory is easy…yes. But the work is hard.
It’s dedication each and every day. It’s making a conscious decision…that I deserve to be happy…and that I deserve the best life I can have.
To be the best bee I can be 😉
Decide, Commit, Succeed.
Do the work. Sometimes it sucks ass…but it’s worth it.
It’s a rainy, crappy Wednesday morning. I think a song is in order
