After the holidays, everyone wants to keep the resolutions they made on New Year's Eve, one of which is usually weight loss or getting to the gym. I myself have been struggling with weight loss for the past three years. In reality, weight loss is a state of mind, where you convince yourself that you are either ready or not to lose the weight. I tell myself that I want and need to lose this weight but then I binge on chocolate. That's not very smart. In order to lose weight, my mind has to be in it. I have to vest in myself mentally and the physical will follow. I am being motivated by a dear friend in New York as well as my sister. We are sending texts to each other to motivate and inspire to do something each day. It's not about going to the gym if that makes you feel miserable, it is about making one positive move each day whether that be stretching, walking, running, cycling, or swimming. Just one. The next day builds on the prior days and so forth. Yesterday my dear friend from New York sent me a link barstarzz.com/inspiration/father-and-son-workout-goals again, to motivate. I received the link via MP3, listened and did the few exercises on the spot. and you know what? I felt better. I did something and that meant a lot. Today, I did it again. It's all a circle. We get up, get ready, do what we need to do and in between there's stress and eating (healthy or not). It's about forming the habit to do something positive every day. The video link above may inspire those that are ready to go to the park or the gym. The gentleman is 60 years young, what an inspiration.
Healthy mind, healthy body.
Now I'm off to bottle some ginger kefir soda, so yummy and healthy. I'll be at the market on Saturday and you can contact me before that if you have any special requests.
