Week’s Motivation: I will beat her!

 

I will beat her.

I will train harder.

I will eat cleaner.

I know her weaknesses.

I know her strengths.

I’ve lost to her before,

But not this time.

She is going down.

I have the advantage

She is the old ME!

Spicy Motivation…

As we kick off the second week of January, here’s a thought for the week:

“Don’t worry about what you are giving up today, worry about what you RISK giving up if you don’t press on each day.”  – Pfitblog.com

Keep your focus on the big picture.  The day to day grind can get to all of us!  Keep your eye on the prize which is better health, feeling your best, taking care of your body, and being your best you.  It is so easy to get down on yourself when everyone else around you is indulging and you are not.  They are not walking your journey, living your life, making your choices!!!

Get to know yourself, because you are changing everyday. Not the dark voice in your head, the REAL you.  Pick up a new notebook and a pen and start to peel back the layers of your own story, and get to know you.

 

Stuck?

 

If you are staring at a blank page and not sure how to start, here’s a “gimme topic” to get you writing:  Who are 5 people you can call when you want to vent, rather than picking up a bag of chips.  Why do you feel comfortable calling them?  GO!!!

This is what is important
