The Challenge Iím on is helping refuel my commitment.
Having to enter my progress for the day
helps make me accountable to myself and to the team.
Being on this challenge wonít let me curl up on a sofa and escape from my goals.
I know I have things I need to do and an exercise I need to get done.
Iím not a reality show fan but today I read an article on Jillian Michaels from THE BIGGEST LOSER putting a disgruntled contestant in a coffin to make a point. The woman is prone to claustrophobia and was kept in a coffin for 20 minutes to scare her into acknowledging what she was doing to herself with her weight. The point was made and the woman had an ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT.
Most of us know that an unhealthy lifestyle can affect your lifespan.
A more realistic lesson might have been to put the woman in a straitjacket and tie her to a couch in an empty room, where she would be bored to death. Thatís what people end up doing to themselves when they dull themselves with a food binge and isolate themselves from the living.
The challenge has helped me feel more focused.
Having 8 weeks to accomplish this project gives me:
tasks, a timeline, and an objective.
Itís not MISSION IMPOSSIBLEÖÖItís OPERATION GET SERIOUS.
Cooking without salt has me satisfied with less food.
Itís still very tasty but Iím not tempted to over indulge.
Have fun todayÖLet the world see how amazing you can be.
