The health journey is one of strength, resisting temptation, self-control, courage, facing our fears, realizing reality, learning and many other challenging things. For some we experience things in the realm of Nutrition and Fitness we never knew before and others are seasoned veterans that have fallen into bad habits due to their issues.
We must be prepared, mentally, physically and spiritually to endure the journey. We are all WORTH the effort and we all have it in us to be successful. We must challenge ourselves to sacrifice a little of what we would like for things are better for us!
Our journey starts in the mind, we desire a better life and better looking body. With fitness, we develop good muscle tone and with Nutrition we eliminate the fat by eating calories to lose weight. We must first dream of improving and develop the motivation and courage to follow through. As we prepare our mind, the body must follow through with action.
A food scale, a measuring cup and spoons and counting food are tools of the trade for success. A weight scale and exercises are other things that aid us in the journey and are essential. We must know what we are doing and how to do it.
Being prepared for meals and unexpected happenings requires being organized. Having cut up vegetables and portioned fruit helps. Also never going to the grocery store hungry is a great idea, otherwise everything looks good to us and we will buy out the store!
Being prepared for exercise is also a great thing, having clothes prepared to work out and the activity planned for some great exercise.
Success is NO accident, it is the result of preparation, dedication and actions for follow through of dreams, plans etc.
Being prepared and aware of actions becomes habit over time aka a lifestyle change!
Are you prepared? You CAN do it!!!
