The visuals of our inauguration preparations … makes me sooo sad.
I know we should take every precaution. I know. I know. I know.
It hurts my heart to know that we must do sooooooo much.
More exerts from Steve #94:
Fat people refuse to suffer.
Fit people know why they must suffer.
When you go into a fight expecting a picnic, you fold up your basket and blanket at the first sign of ants. When you go into a fight fully prepared to suffer, you’re not surprised when it gets tough.
If it were so easy to get fit everyone would be fit.
Fit people look for the positive but prepare for the negative.
You can be as positive or negative as you want, but sticking to your diet and exercise program is the only thing that will make you thin and healthy.
Upgrade your habits and the results will follow. All of your results come directly from your dominant habit patterns.
Critical Thinking Question: As an intelligent and educated person, do you honestly believe you’re going to go from fat to fit without suffering???
Action Step: Mentally prepare yourself to experience a light to moderate level of physical, psychological, and emotional suffering. The pain isn’t extreme and won’t last long, but it’s serious enough to make most people quit. That’s why you need to prepare yourself before it begins. Remember that any time you make a major habit change you will pay a price. Prepare now so you won’t be surprised when the going gets tough.
Well, darn. I guess we aren’t getting by easy on this endeavor.
Just like the preparations for our new president’s swearing in … we MUST prepare ourselves for our endeavor to get healthy. For me, it’s not just a matter of eating less … it’s an almost total over haul of how I deal with … stress. Ok … and boredom. Ok, Ok … life disasters, hurt feelings, feeling of no control. Whew.
Suffering … well, for me, my life has been full of suffering. That’s one of the reasons food became … my support … my release.
So now to suffer for a good reason … a planned reason. A reason that gets me where I am the best ME.
In the big picture ... changing my behaviors is less painful than draggin' my unhealthy body through the day.
Just do it … already. No matter what.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
