Up and running...sort of

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

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.

    That's where it all begins our relationship with food & the what fors & why do we need this or that? So you are off to a good start. Then you can start adding 10mins of exercise walking is really good & we all do it already we just need to do more of it.

    God bless,

    That's great!!! When your mindset changes, so can your actions. I've been working on that as well and staying busy instead of being idle. As the saying goes .... an idle mind is the devils playground. So.... best to you on renewing and challenging your mindset.

    I love your philosophy behind exercising your mind. It is so easy to just say I am going to Move more, eat less. However, if we are truly changing our lives, we have to question our thoughts and feelings in order to grow. Thanks for sharing!
