Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

How Bad Do You Want It?

That's the question I've been asking myself lately... How bad do you want it?

I'm not sure I have the answer. And only testing my will power and motivation will give me the answer.

I signed up for the marathon. The training begins - and it snows. I LOVE snow. But I'm not a fan of running in the cold or long distances on the treadmill. How bad do I want it?

I also want to drop a few recently added pounds and develop some muscle tone. I love chocolate and sweets. I hate strength training. How bad do I want it?

I've signed up for some personal training and some classes at the gym. I'm starting my eating plan tomorrow. I have a 5 mile run planned on the treadmill tomorrow morning.

Of course at the moment my belly is full of Christmas candy and fatty foods. So it's easy to say I'll start my eating plan and my workout plans.

When the cravings start and I start bargaining with myself 'just one - one piece that's all' or when I'm tired 'just skip today - it's just one day' then I will see how bad I really want it.

Sure everything in moderation - one candy bad or missed workout isn't going to break me. But if that one turns into several maybe I don't want it as bad as I thought I did.

I'm hoping this time I want it bad enough. This isn't my first attempt or even my 5th. See I have a problem. I am truly addicted to sugar. If I stayed with moderation all would be well. But I don't.

Starting tomorrow I guess I can begin to answer 'How bad do I want it?'.
