I am in my second week and felt inspired to write this J
I am grateful...
That I have legs to run on a treadmill and get tired – for there are people who have not
For the privilege of learning to live a healthy life – even if it means that I will be stretched at how I used to do things
That I have access to gym facilities – even if I have to go there at 5 in the morning
That I have the resources to prepare healthy meals – even if it might take longer than McDonalds drive through
That I have arms to intensely push weights even though it makes my muscles burns
For the support network in my life – I embrace that
That I can read and be renewed in my mind - therefore I read
That the Body for Life Challenge has crossed my path – for I know that somewhere, someone will never even have this opportunity
That I have a free will, and can choose to change and live a healthy life – therefore I choose it
I-B-I-D I Believe In Dreams
Want it. Plan it. Do it.
Ditto! I couldn't have said it better myself... I'm glad you did. I've had a hard time over the last week of not wanting to do this anymore; eventhough I have continued to carry on and push harder every time. I have a feeling my last 4 1/2 weeks will be approached in a new light.
Thank you for posting this as I feel that perhaps it was time for a little slap in the face to remind me how fortunate I am to be in the position I am.
Awesome! That is some good stuff! Thx I needed that!
We are very happy for you! Only 4 1/2 weeks! Wow, that must be exciting. We have only started - end of wee2 now - but we are so excited about the change we see happening.
From what I have heard, the big changes approach fast at the stage you are at now. So, take a look at your before photo, re-read your goals and reasons for doing this. Picture what you will look like and feel like. Think about the inspiration you will be to everyone around you!
And, continue to be thankful. We are all privileged to be a part of this!
Being as you will reach 12 weeks before we do, I hope you will be at the finish line cheering us in when we cross the line. See you there!
“When we lose sight of the vision we become enslaved by the
sight of the problem.”
I meant to add that when I felt like slowing down I thought about my legs and the fact that I have them and they work when I ask them to... which made me feel grateful.
tnx again, I-B-I-D-2
