Do you want to wear the door prize?
So as I was sitting in the jacuzzi soaking my sore muscles to go back and do it again today I had a thought...I can do this and I don't ever have to go back to what I was (well, until I am waay old)....I don't have to keep my chubby clothes or get rid of my skinny clothes 'cause I haven't worn them in over 2 years (if I'd done that I wouldn't have gotten to put on my skinny black jeans last week)....I've heard people say that "If you haven't fit into them since forever, just get rid of them, 'cause it ain't gonna happen"
WOW, what a defeatist attitude!!!
I realized that I hold ALMOST ALL of the control with my body...as we ALL mostly do..we just don't realize it....I didn't put it together until just a bit ago...in case you haven't, consider it...YOU HAVE THE CONTROL!
My body no longer has to be the mystery gift, door prize that I am just stuck with.....I have the POWER to change it to my own desires. Sure, I can't make it any taller or younger BUT I can make it leaner, more shapely and longer lasting. I can make it stronger and I can make it look and feel younger. I HAVE THE POWER!
What a tremendous feeling.
By choosing to eat a certain thing before a work out....by choosing to eat a very specific combination of something directly after my work out...I can illicit a response from my muscles...I CONTROL THEM AND WHAT THEY END UP DOING!
By manipulating my exercise program and switching it up...by cycling my calories and manipulating when I eat my carbs and what kind.....I CAN CHANGE ME.
By lifting weights, little metal things that would just sit there doing nothing if I (or you) didn't pick them up and push or pull them....I can add muscle to my body.....I can delete fat from my body.....
I can be my own designer....to design my own "outfit"...a one of a kind show stopping creation...If I don't like the way the "fabric" lays here, I can change that......If I want it to curve out more there, its in MY POWER to make it happen....
The outfit I wear under my clothes changes the way that I feel inside when wearing those clothes...they are a coat and I can choose to hide under them or I can take charge and change the way I feel and look in that coat....My own creation can be waay better than any store bought tarp with a label and someone else's name on it...It's better because it's mine and it's home made....and I did it.
I HAVE THE CONTROL...YOU HAVE THE CONTROL.
I can and will manipulate and psyche myself out to have the tastes that I want and to achieve the design I want......I can and will keep my body guessing by changing my work out to "confuse my body"...Something that can be confused like that can NOT be in control of me.....I HAVE THE POWER.
So think about that today....Do you want to wear your own creation, your own design? Or do you want to wear the mystery gift, the door prize?...."They" don't want you to know how MUCH control you have...HOW MUCH you can do...BUT YOU CAN.
Of course, with all of that control and power comes responsibility and work...but it's waaay better than being a pawn...Waaay better to manipulate than to be manipulated.
TODAY I AM IN CONTROL OF MY OWN DESIGN! How about you?
