I am RESPONSIBLE . . .

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, January 20, 2014



I AM RESPONSIBLE. What power those three words have. I am responsible for my weight gain, my lack of fitness, my body shape. Yes, I am. I am also RESPONSIBLE for making the changes of what's to come. I hold myself ACCOUNTABLE for all that has happened. It is up to me to take CONTROL and learn from the situation. I must EAT myself out of my weight gain. (With proper nutrition.) And I must MOVE. emoticon






There is no one else to blame for what happened to me. Yes, I was influenced, but I picked up the fork. I did what I knew I should of not of done. I am responsible for all things ME.









I should of used that gym membership daily. I should of, could of, would of, are all EXCUSES. They won't change a single thing in my life. Finger pointing doesn't help either. Instead I take responsibility and accept the fact that I am in charge of my life and it is only up to me to be the change I want to see.








No more STINKING THINKING. Begin today being RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU. We were given the gift of free choice, to choose right from wrong. Today is time to be RESPONSIBLE to your body. It's your choice.









When I look in the mirror, I am responsible for what I see in it. If I don't like the reflection in it, I can CHANGE IT. I am accountable for what what I will accomplish each and every day. It is up to me to make sure I get my workouts in, that I push myself as hard as I can, that I monitor what goes into my mouth, that I make wise choices. I CREATE how my body looks and feels depending on how I fuel it and move it.







Years ago, when I was dating I went out with a man who insisted on eating out daily. OMG. I was in denial back then, thinking I am being spoiled. Heck ya, who doesn't love eating out. Looking back that is when MY HEALTH DECLINED. It was gradual, but it added up quickly, gathering steam as the pounds packed on. Yes, I was pressured to eat or - he said if I didn't I was starving him. LOL. (Yes, I am out of that relationship.) I didn't look in the mirror back then and I sure didn't know about calorie calculators, fats, carbs, sugars, or anything like that. I lived in ignorance. The damage was done. It is as if my metabolism was changed for the worse, much slower. Now it is UP TO ME to fix what I damaged. Excuses don't matter. I take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for my mistakes. It's how we learn, it's a fact of life.










Everyday I have lots of chances to make things RIGHT with my body. I have at least 3 meals in which I must take charge and plan to fuel my body well or face the consequences.









Today I am demonstrating my intent is winning. Hubby and I will take a nice long walk under the sunny blue sky. We will soak up the golden sunbeams as we stroll by a creek lined with oak trees. Later I will do my Bootcamp video and monitor what I consume.
Yes, I am responsible for ME.











I know where I want to be. I am ON MY WAY. I am responsible. I am creating a new me.










Today I take charge. I am responsible for all my food choices. I move to create a fit, stronger body. Now I like what I see. emoticon







Isn't amazing to be able to create and shape your body?
Only you are responsible for you.

    I love this blog. i look at it for encouragement and honesty.
Responsibility is a strong concept and when we accept it, we can lear from failures work more, whine less and reach our goals.
