SO I think something needs to be said about food.
I have thought a lot about this.
Good Food / Bad Food - FORbideN food. Pear / Apple.. Fat / thin...what is beautiful?
What is it we are really striving for. This whole thing.... diet and exercise can be so totally overwhelming. For every body shape and size woman or man, sometimes just trying to get into it can be more than intimidating ....some give up before they can even start because what they want seems impossible. Some think they need to get fit before they could ever think about going to a gym....
THis idea of getting fit makes people look closely at their bodies and the things they 'hate' about the way they look.
Most people have this ...well hopefully hopefully there are some that don't. But as a reult of media and constant images most have an ideal of what we think is beautiful. I mean..in our 20's we have poor body image well....because we are in our 20's and we don't know any better...but 30's? 40's, 50's??? when do we release ourselves from this and start loving what we are?
I could just preach pages and pages about this one. But I guess what I really just want to say is your goal needs to be about health and HAPPiness. Your goal should be a picture of a fitter, healthier, and happier you. Ask yourself what the heck it is you are comparing yourself to anyways. A magazine or TV..that just is not real we all know it.
I think it is absolutely empowering to have a goal but a reminder to enjoy the journey is deffinently in order. Depok Chopra states that where a thought goes a molecule flows. When you state loving thoughts about yourself you change your biochemistry. You have to love yourself it is really really important. Be kind to yourself. Listen to your body. Desire what you have. Be sexy!!!! Women who are sexy are those who believe they are sexy....this is completely a mind thing. Think about how you feel when you wear new clothes...think about it ...it's a mind thing!!!
BE Fit and Be happy and your body will take care of the rest. Focus on being strong and fast. Improving your time or speed. Challenge yourself to be better each week. You will be amazed at what you can do. Enjoy today and everything it has to offer you. Opportunity can come from anywhere, at any time. You can't sit around and wait for a better day, just because you don't know how to get there. You can only make a better day. There will never be a point in your life when tomorrow is tomorrow. Tomorrow is today.
Throw your hat over the fence....because once you do that the only thing left to do is go and get it.
Today is the day to throw your hat!
