  • Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

    -Earl Nightingale

    art 2Don’t let our country’s recent polar vortex frigidness fool ya – spring is officially on her way.

    It’s time we spring into action and take hold of our weight loss and wellness to get into a healthy lifestyle frame of mind.

    Winter’s gloom is almost behind us so it’s time to get our butts outside and do more things in the warmer weather – namely, daily cardio walking!

    What’s it gonna take for you to make a commitment to yourself to get fit and find the secret to your own true and everlasting weight loss?

    What’s it gonna take for you to schlep your walking shoes to work for a nice lunchtime jaunt around the parking lot, forest preserve, trail, block, or up and down about 10-20 flights of stairs – squeezing in a bit of much-needed daily cardio?

    What else do you do on your lunch hour but blab, text, check your email, waste time and feed your face – with the wrong stuff anyway?

    And developing this healthy daily walking habit will also help you alleviate stress along with everything else that ails you.

    Trust me.

    If your dream is to be Speedo-worthy by summer, there’s nothing standing in your way – but y-o-u.

    Figure out what your roadblock to getting fit is and rid yourself of it. Now.

    Meditate on it, pray about it, but whatever you do – take steps to obliterate that obstacle and do what it takes to get your butt moving in a much healthier direction.

    Combine your daily cardio practice with a good, healthy, low carb eating plan and watch what happens. Your weight will literally melt off like magic, I promise, but you gotta wanna – and you have to be dedicated and diligent in your efforts – you know you can’t do anything this monumental half-assed.

    You have to be ready to give it your all – and that means you have to make up your mind to begin right now, today, right where you are.

    Regardless of what food you have in your house and fridge – eliminate everything that doesn’t support your new health and fitness eating plan.

    Ditch the oatmeal, cereals, breads, pastas, cookies, and cakes. Purge all the rest of those white starch and sugar carbs lurking around and get yourself going . . . better to give these things to friends who can afford to eat them or throw them away – cos if you don’t, you know what you’re doing? You’re wearing it all – and it shows . . . look in the mirror.

    Never give up on your dream to be healthier and more fit just because of the time it will take to accomplish it.

    What else do you have to do with yourself?

    The time will pass anyway – whether you’re stuck in your own hot mess sitting there on your sofa night after night, wishing you weren’t so fat, while watching everyone else Commit To Get Fit – or getting your butt out that door and taking your cardio walk today and everyday – for the health of it.

    It’s all up to you . . .

    * As with any new diet and fitness plan, be sure to check with your physician before you begin.
