Hey Kittens. I'm putting up a quickie blog post because I just got home- it's late, and I leave for VEGAS TOMORROW morning! ;-) Who else will be at IHRSA?? LMK if I will see you there.
Anyway, I remember sometime over the past couple of years some of you going, "When will you put up pictures of YOU on your blog Kelly??" And back then I was soooo down on myself and sooooo horribly negative toward myself and about myself I never would think of it. And that negative self-talk fueled the negative results....it's all a bad cycle. You must stop it if you are there. I did and the whole WORLD is changing for me.
CHANGE YOUR THINKING-- CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
So, I feel very proud of how far I've come thus far. Since November, I have lost just about 15 lbs. And if I want to hit my target weight I have 15 more to go-- but we'll see. It's not about the number it's about my physique. But I feel DANG GREAT right now and it feels AWESOME to feel great about my accomplishment and myself.
So what's with OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS for the title?? Here's the thing people-- realize that this journey is a day in day out thing. It doesn't stop. Remember that quote I always refer to -- "A garden is never finished"? Yea. That. Well- your fitness journey and your spiritual journey and your professional journey-- every day, every week, every hour-- you have OPPORTUNITY presented to you. And you have the opportunity to WIN or to FAIL. Understand that. Celebrate the wins-- and then, realize that when you screw up---- whatever that means for you in that circumstance-- you have the OPPORTUNITY the next hour, the next day the next week- TO DO BETTER. To make a RIGHT CHOICE. Its never OVER. You never FINISH.
Yea, it's not easy to look at really tough times in life and see the good -- BUT THERE IS GOOD in all things inevitably if you allow yourself to expect it and TO KNOW YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT. Start your fitness journey KNOWING THAT EVERY DEPOSIT YOU MAKE COUNTS. And if you screwed up this weekend-- GUESS WHAT?? THAT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO KICK ASS THIS WEEK.
What's it gonna be??? ;-)
I'm ready for a kick butt week that makes last week look like sitting on the bench. How about you?
