Where you attention goes, your energy flows! There will always be reasons why you “can’t” or shouldn’t or won’t do something.
There are a million reasons why I didn’t want to workout today. The love of my life is in Paris and I miss her more than breathing. I have so much going on at work and in life and being a single dad and… well I could go on forever.
For years I told myself that I couldn’t lose weight: slow metabolism, foods go straight to my hips, genetics, etc.. One day I found my reason why and it fueled me enough to take one walk. I put myself into counseling and began to understand what really motivated me to eat and live and behave the way that I did. Once I understood my triggers, I began to seek out positive triggers.
What songs, people, actions and behaviors inspire me to go to the gym? Embrace those.
What songs, people, actions and behaviors inspire me to binge or give up? Abandon those.
