So, I keep seeing and hearing things that concern me a little…about viewpoints on fitness and how to lose weight.
Yes, it’s true that if you move more, and eat less, you will lose weight. (Calories in versus calories out IS the reason you lose or gain weight, afterall). But what I’m worried about is that this mindset allows us a mentality of ‘bare minimum’. And of course, for some, that’s fine. But shouldn’t we strive for greatness? Not just in health and fitness, but in life? If you were looking for a job and you really thought you deserved a salary of $50,000 – and you went to the first place and they offered you $25,000. Would you accept it because “it’s better than nothing”? Or would you fight for what you deserved?
To me, it’s the same with health and fitness. So maybe going for a 1 mile walk every other day is enough to help you drop a few pounds. Well that’s great! And it’s a wonderful start. But are you content to ‘drop a few pounds?’ Or would you love to get into great shape? Would you love to raise your metabolism, feel great every day, increase energy and get to your ideal weight and muscle tone? Maybe it sounds impossible. I’m here to tell you it’s not. But it does take more than the occasional stroll. You don’t have to workout for hours every day though, either. It’s all about choices. Set your goals. Make them big, that’s the best part of life, sometimes.
