Don’t you love it when you do something for yourself, knowingly or unknowingly, that you “high five” yourself for later? You know what I mean; like when you buckle down and do your taxes in February (instead of waiting until the last minute) and you get your refund early. Or you actually file away all those papers that have been sitting on your desk. Your boss asks for a copy of a report and you know exactly where it is. And, then there’s the working out and following a clean eating plan that pays off when you try on your skinny jeans. You know that feeling, right? It’s the dance-around-in-your-bedroom-all-by-yourself feeling! You do the happy dance and keep looking at yourself in the mirror with a huge grin on your face. It’s like winning the weight loss lottery!
All it takes is a commitment to yourself. Yep. To yourself. We are committed to our spouses. We are committed to giving our children the best life we can. We are committed to our jobs. When’s the last time you thought about being committed to yourself? Truly, without that commitment to yourself, the rest can’t ever be realized. It’s not being selfish; it’s being realistic. Without that dedication to your emotional and physical health, you can’t be 100% committed to everything else.
If you are feeling sluggish, heavy, unhealthy, and unhappy, you don’t have the energy to give everyone and everything else much. Wouldn’t it be great to be energized and healthy? It would feel so great to have your metabolism on fire again! How about the wonderful feeling of your body being leaned and toned?!!! We’re here for you! Be committed to yourself first. And, do something today that your future self will thank you for!
