But, what about discipline?
I personally think that it takes quite a bit of discipline to accomplish our fitness and weight loss goals. I mean, think about it...
We must choose food wisely and make healthier choices.
We must get ourselves to the track, gym, garage, or wherever we choose to workout!
We must set goals that are within reach and figure out what it takes to get there!
All of these things require discipline!
I'd choose discipline over regret ANY DAY, what about you?
Looking back on my life living as an overweight teen and young adult, I have many regrets.
Something that has never changed is my want and ability to have FUN! To not take life too seriously and use laughter as a stress relief! Plus, if I was funny then they wouldn't see my weight, right?
But did I have self-discipline? I really don't think so. Not when it came to my eating habits, my lack of exercise, my emotional attachment to food...nah, don't think I did and with that came regret.
I guess I just look at today's youth, with so many of them overweight or obese and think...I hope they find the motivation, courage, and the discipline needed for change before they look back and regret SO much of their life. I feel sad that they sometimes don't see the light, the hope and happiness that is there waiting for them.
We all have it inside of us but sometimes we must change things and push things around to finally SEE it! It's there, in each of us. That ability to push forward when things seem hopeless. When the goals seem too big and that they'll never be reached. We've all been there.
The marathon runners had to start somewhere. The Olympic athletes started somewhere.
WE ALL START SOMEWHERE. It's when we choose to make that change
and how we achieve our goals that truly matters!
Get out there and make TODAY that day :-)
All I need are these pictures to keep me in check and help with my discipline...
