Up and running...sort of

In an effort to reclaim my confidence and conquer my battle with the bulge, I have decided to get moving. I know what you're probably thinking. You're thinking that I'm going to join my fitness club chain, hit a Zumba class, or start the latest workout dvd craze. Well, let the record show that none of that willbe the case. I have decided to get moving with my mind. After thinking about what it is that causes me to eat the things I do or remain stationary rather than working out, I realized the key to my fitness success is exercising my mind. I have decided to begin questioning decisions that I make. Let me explain. If I find myself craving a brownie for example, I will challenge that thought. I wont just feed it. I'll ask myself why I want it. I'll ask myself how I'll feel after I eat it, and most importantly I'll ask myself what will I gain by eating it. This is the key. I believe one of my favorite female spiritual leaders called this "the battlefield of the mind." By working out my thoughts rather than letting them work me I am building strength and creating muscle definition in my spirit. This is a hardcore program and it requires a great deal of committment. Day one of this journey begins tomorrow..No! Day one begins right now. Why wait? It's time to get moving.
