Choices


We are faced with choices every moment of the day. Our actions determine the outcome. You can make a choice regarding your weight and fitness: You can choose to do nothing or you can choose to make changes.

That's it, you have two choices so it shouldn't be too tough.

If you choose to make one positive change everyday you are moving in the right direction. There is no rule that states you have to make a 360 degree change all at once, you can take baby steps, go at your own pace, but make the right choice.

Start by writing down your goal and look at it every single day. Post it where you can see it as a constant reminder. Once you feel that you are controlling that thought, and it is not controlling you, add another positive change.

It can be something as simple as committing to eating breakfast everyday. Then do it everyday until it becomes habit, it needs to be as important to you as brushing your teeth everyday. I would never consider walking out the door without brushing my teeth, and breakfast is just the same, it's a non-negotiable, I must do it.

Remember, you are the only one who can determine your future, it is completely in your hands, choose to make it a long and healthful one.
