Although this really isn't a game is it?
Getting and staying healthy is serious business and if you read the blogs of the successful ones out here you realize they too have struggled a lot from time to time. So what makes them successful and some of the rest of us not so much?
Well I know my old football coach would simply say - they want it more! That means they sacrifice their time to do healthy things and they accept failure but come back - some of us just quit until next week.
The successful ones efforts turn out to not be a sacrifice - they have grown to love the hikes, bikes, zumba, weights, runs and so on! They love it - it's not work but a hobby.
To be honest - most of the time I don't want to go to the gym - I would rather read or mess around on the computer. When I do go to the gym and really workout I feel great at the end of it. That's part of growing to love it. So that gets me to the fake it til you make it concept. Just doing the right thing over a period of time will probably let you realize that at some point - you have grown to love it.
I have 35 days until I leave for my cruise. I have challenged myself to lose 20 pounds. That is going to be a stretch but I can make it happen by just doing what I know and who knows - maybe I'll come to love it!
Glad to be back!
