So many times people embark on weight loss journey; hiring a trainer, signing up for a diet program, buying meal replacement shakes, the works; but they’re not really ready to make a change. Workouts happen — as long as you don’t have to run errands that day(or week). You eat smart throughout the day — as long as there’s no ladies or fellas night planned on Thursday or an office potluck on Friday. We all know how it goes. Any little thing can derail the well-intentioned plans to lose those 40 pounds that are taking your blood pressure into that risky range or giving you type 2 diabetes.
It’s time to get rid of the excuses and start changing your life. The last thing I want to do is preach, but this is serious. I’ve seen it far too many times. Being healthy isn’t convenient. Exercising and eating healthy are two things that take effort and thought. They don’t just happen out of the blue. You have to make a conscious effort to make both happen. We find the money to buy clothes, shoes and go on expensive trips, but then complain about buying healthy food because it’s expensive. Cut out a few of the extras in your life and buy some fresh produce and lean meat for your family. It’s a lifestyle. It doesn’t have to be hard. It just has to be done.
As a fitness professional, it pains me to see people taking their health for granted by living an unhealthy lifestyle. Of course I want people to look good, but that’s not why I’m in the fitness industry. I’m in this business because my passion is to help people live their fullest lives by being healthy. Everything else falls into place when you feel and look good…in that order. I want to be a change agent. I want to help eliminate the diseases caused by obesity. The diseases that end lives.
I’m ready, willing and able to help you get where you need to be from a diet and fitness standpoint. Are you willing to do your part?
