Fit of Mind!
Because we’ve been there. We’ve had a sedentary lifestyle, we’ve lost over 80lbs, we’ve gone through career changes and life challenges reserved for Lifetime movies. And we’re angry. Everything needs to change.
You are not the problem – your environment is. Every message you’re exposed to – from loved ones, coworkers, media, in advertising – it’s all telling you what to expect. How to be normal. Where to fit in. That you need to belong. Exercise this way, follow that fad.
So you try the new diet, you try a ridiculous Crossfit bootcamp designed to drop 50 pounds in 5 days – only to hurt yourself. Or to gain it back (and then some). Or to get frustrated and stop attending all together. You end up pushing harder, to what ends? Results that are not sustainable, or no results at all. You get sad, give up, maybe go on vacation or just let life be for awhile. Frustration builds, you get motivated again – excited even – hopeful maybe.
So you reinvent yourself, reinvest and recommit to that new year’s resolution. Get yourself a trainer, build a program, and write a diet plan.
How’s that working for you? Success everlasting, all your dreams realized?
How many times have you tried? How many ways? Are you tired yet?
Would you like to try for the last time?
Because here’s the thing, and you may have heard this before – fitness isn’t about end points. Fitness isn’t about mindlessly breaking a sweat. Fitness is about continued living. It’s about care and prevention. It’s about a state of being.
