You don't get what you don't earn

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

This has been one of my BIGGEST motivational sayings as I work out. One of the the things I believe has happened in society and does translate into being overweight is the idea that things will just "happen" to me. "My dreams will come true" is really only half the equation. We forget that they just don't happen. You have to actively DO something about it. If I don't work out and eat healthy, then I haven't earned being healthier, losing weight, etc. This mindset has really helped me put in the hard work that is needed to accomplish weight loss!

    Another good one is "if it is to BE, it's up to ME". Kinda the same sentiment. I am like you in that way - I need something to focus on and spur me on so I keep on going and give it my all instead of slacking during a workout when I get fatigued.
Keep sparkin' and keep sharing. Thanks!
