You never know what you’re going to get when you open up CrackBook, er I mean Facebook, but today I was in for a treat.
The first thing that popped up on the screen was this:
One of my homegirls, Yolo I call her, posted this in her 90 day challenge group I’m participating in.
I stared at the screen so that I CAN remember why I started. I made 3 specific goals at the beginning of the challenge back on July 1 and have since fell off quite a bit.
My goals seem simple: 1) Get more protein in (mainly supplementing with protein shakes/smoothies) 2) get in at least 5,000 steps per day, and 3) eat one salad a day with lots of greens, veggies and of course more protein.
Sounds easy right?
Well, what had happened was… #NoExcuses
It doesn’t matter. The reasons I’ve fell off aren’t important. If you want, I can come up with a million of them. But what’s important is that I remember my why…so I took a moment to think about it…
- So that I can be an example to my Boo Boos in learning, maintaining, and owning a healthy mind, body, and spirit
- So that I can prevent the multitude of diseases that my family frequently has
- So that I can live a long life of robustness and quality
- So that I can love shopping again…
The Real (and uncommon) way to lose weight
If getting rid of even just 10% of your body weight is a goal for you, you’ll learn more from the following than anything else you’ve ever seen and you can take that to the bank!
Here’s the #1 REAL and uncommon way (uncommon because not many people choose this route) is…. *drumroll please*
Did you see it? Just in case you missed it, let me restate it – DO THE DAMN WORK!
The WORK itself is the hardest part right? If only it could be different. I’m with ya!
It’s only hard when we let excuses, old devastating habits that don’t work, and the opinions of others get in the way. #RealTalk
Another thing I loved about what Yolo said is she REFRAMED her mind about the 28 pounds she lost. That’s a HUGE win but to her, at least at first, she was disappointed until she changed her perspective. 28 is surely more than the 4 I’ve lost so far! 🙂
Yolo says all of this better than any “online expert” you could ever hear from in my honest opinion…and she’s unapologetic about it!!! #Winning
Go on ‘head and connect with Yolo on Facebook why dontcha!
Talk to me…
What do you think about Yolo’s status? Are you making excuses or are you doing the work? This is a #NoJudgmentZone up in here so don’t be shy and chime in!
#SideNote – Incidentally, I realize I’ve used more hashtags in this post than I ever have. LOL And it’s all good! 🙂
