The Inspirational Me

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Dear Self,

Take a look at the 672 calories burned in one day and the 2400 calories consumed in that day. What a great day of skiing you had. You got in as many runs as you could, you challenged yourself with some speed and bumps. Wow, that is how you get to your goals. It is great that you find ways to have fun while exercising however, I have a bone to pick with you. After putting in all that effort, why would you abandon your eating plan? Start the day off with over 600 calories filled with saturated fat, then no skimping on the calories for lunch dinner or any snacks. This is not how you turn into the "Inspirational Me" that fills the Spark blog boards with pictures of the 10lb, 20lb and 30+lb weight losses with the journey of how they got there.

I know you can do this. I know you can inspire by looking back someday and sharing the journey. You can get to that point where you look and feel great, where your strength is something to admire, where everyone wants to know how you did it and the answer is, what it always is, "I ate right and exercised". There is no magic recipe here, just roll up those sleeves, turn on that will power, get ready to put some exercise miles/minutes behind you and "JUST DO IT" already.

Sincerely someone who KNOWS you can do it, I see it, I feel it...Now I will do it,
