Are you busy? a new mom or simply need motivation to start your weight loss journey once and for all? Here is what you need to hear to get started today!
I always say discipline over motivation, but I also understand we all need that initial motivation to start moving. Let me start by reminding you that it is about your health not your physical body even though they go hand in hand.
Oh well, that's never gonna happen!
With Instagram models reminding us regularly to hate our bodies, they set the stakes so high that we don’t feel motivated to take any actions. How long is it going to take for us to look like that? To feel as sexy? to feel as healthy? How long is it going to take for men to get attracted to us or for us to feel comfortable enough in the bed with our husbands? "Oh well that's never going to happen" is something I constantly told myself. These models are different, they have good genetics, and they don't like food as much as I do!
Let me let you in on a secret. 3 years later and almost 50 pounds lighter, I understand that my competition is not these models. When I started to feel healthy, I automatically felt sexy. Yes I might not look picture perfect but I feel sexy in my own skin.
You don’t have to look like a model. Start thinking about your health and everything else will fall into its place.
I am too busy to cook and exercise
This used to be my favorite excuse and I didn't realize it was just a big fat excuse! I know I know! You have a full time job and a ton of responsibilities but my argument is that you need to PRIOROTIZE!
Are you too busy to take care of your health? Did you know obesity includes more than 10% of annul deaths in Canada and kills over 300 000 people in US? Did you know if you are overweight you are prone to type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and strokes, certain types of cancer, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, fatty liver disease, kidney disease and so much more! Not to mention weak immune system so you are sick half of the year and lowers hormone production so you are in a bad mood or tired for the other half?
Will you be too busy to get healthy when you are in the hospital bed or diagnosed with diabetes? Is your high paying job really worth risking your own and family's health?
It is time to START making time for things that matter
