It's mind over matter

So I will use my mind to move this matter!!! That's it folks seriously. You have to want this in your mind. You have to make up your mind to have your best body. You have to use it to will your body to do what you want it to do.

Most mornings when my alarm goes off, I want to hit the snooze button. But then I start thinking. I think about why I am doing this. I think about all the nice clothes I want to wear. I think about being healthy so I can live longer to drive my husband and kids even more crazy. I think and then I make up in my mind to get up and get going.

Our mind is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal. You have to use it in order to be successful. Whatever it is that is motivating you, think about it and then get going. Don't think about how tired you are, instead think about how great you will feel after exercising. Don't think about how sore you are going to be, instead focus on the fact that your muscles are working and helping to burn fat. Change the way you think and the way you approach your goals and doing so will help you focus on the positive. I know it is not easy, but know that anything worth having isn't. I hope this encourages you to have your best body ever!!! Q

It's sooo true! You don't even know how many days and months I've wasted not going to the gym because I was "too tired" after work to go. But a new year is coming and I don't want to bring the same mindset I had this year into next year.

Hey Q - It's BiancaElyse. so much truth in your post. I find that when I eat poorly and gain wight, it all starts in my mind. Ia m usally stressed or upset about something and eat to comfort myself.

The weight gain is just a manifestation of what is going on mentally.

Conversely, when I lose wight and get back in shape, it has to start 1st in my mind. I have to be ready mentally before I can push my body and get back to where I need to be.
