Went to the dentist to get two teeth re-bonded. I was born with no tooth enamel … so, dentists and I have been enemies … I mean friends from the time I got teeth.
Quick trip to the store afterwards was … sad. So little on the shelves … still. But I got toilet tissue.
More exerts from Steve #92:
Fat people lack hope.
Fit people are excited about their future.
Being fat doesn’t just happen; it’s a choice you make with every meal. It’s something we do to ourselves, yet are quick to blame others.
Fit people are in control of their minds and bodies, and that gives them a level of confidence fat people can’t imagine.
Fitness increases feelings of hope, optimism and enthusiasm for life.
Critical Thinking Question: Have you carefully crafted your vision of your future as a fit person???
Action Step: Once your vision is written, read it every morning and ingrain the images of the future into your consciousness. This will help keep you on track when the going gets tough.
DIL made a vision board for 2021. I have never done that … have you???
I have to admit as a very visual person … I found hers intriguing. She included:
Dates with our DS.
Dates with g-kids … group and individual.
Creativity … she draws and illustrated a child’s book.
Home improvement projects.
Meal planning and new recipes.
Weight loss goals.
Exercising / hiking goals.
Charity contributions … money or showing up in person.
Keeping in touch with loved ones !!!
It was not a written list but a creative pictorial layout and she included DS and g-kids in the creation of it.
Steve recommends cutting out pictures of people who look the way you want to. Nah … I want to look like me … just thinner and healthier. But I do like the idea of a visual goal. So, I looked at pictures of me during 2017 … my skinny year when I was a total of 100+ pounds lighter. In every picture … I was smiling. Hmmm ??? That’s what I noticed more than my smaller body. Hmmm ???
As a fat person … I AM filled with hope. So, there Steve !!!
I’m a contradiction in that I know things will work out, I just know it … but not by blind faith alone … I am to contribute action as well. Good things are not just gonna happen … I need to help.
I hope our country rights itself … hears those who share their feelings and hopes peacefully AND contributes positively to those hopes.
I hope I quit talking about getting healthy and …
Just do it … already.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
