A Pep Talk for my friend (and anyone else who needs it)
Sunday, October 04, 2009
OK, my friend, we both know why we're here. Curling up under the covers doesn't get us where we need to be. We both know that eventually we have to throw off those blankets and emerge out into the real world. When we do, we'd like it to be as a slimmer, healthier person.
I know we've both been fighting this battle for a long time. There are days when it feels like we should just give up, have a giant piece of chocolate cake, put our feet up and watch TV. But we know better. We can indulge in a small piece of cake once in a great while, but we both know we need to get off our butts and MOVE to achieve our goals. Even if it's only ten minutes a day, we need to do it. Do something, anything, physical every single day!
You'll notice I've been saying 'we' all along here. That's because neither of us is alone in our battle. We have comrades and friends, sisters and brothers, mothers, fathers, family and acquaintances who are traveling this road with us. If you stumble, one of us will be there to pick you up - all you have to do is ask.
Together, we can make it. Now walk with me. Let's burn a few more calories before this day is over.
