Get it Together; Stop the Excuses - Get Motivated

It's been said that You should, "Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can - there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did."  Sarah Caldwell 

So, my question to you is, are you learning? Are you changing? Are you actually applying the advice given to you? The groundwork of all happiness is good health. And it is your responsibility to hold yourself accountable to that. By Health I don't just mean thinking about it, I mean doing it!

We complain and analyze why we're overweight, why we're sick, why our relationships suck, why we aren't financially free, or why we aren't quite reaching our personal goals. We dissect ourselves, really, it's brutal; then we place blame on others because we're too damn egg-headed to get over our issues. But Why?  What's your issue?  And how hard is it to actually GET OVER IT?

our responsibility is first and foremost to yourself; to love yourself, to eat right & exercise, to keep learning, to practice temperance, grace and generosity, to continue to adapt, to plan ahead, to keep organized, to take time to meditate and reflect... Why? Well, you may just avoid totally annihilating yourself for one, and everything else in your life will reflect this positive change.  You can't have what you choose not to work for, or change for; it's simply impossible.

Some pertinent advice to Ourselves Should be, "Get It Together".  

Can you honestly afford to be unhealthy?  At what cost are you going to allow yourself to live in wallow, to continuously make excuses for yourself?  To keep being complacent and being judgmental of others, because you just don't have what it takes!?!  YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES!  It's in you, right now, and you need to access that power and just DO IT!

No excuses, No "I'm not good enough" or "I'm not like others".. Bah!  

You can do anything you set your mind to, and no one other then yourself can set limitations on what's possible! Impossibilities are caused by YOU, and it's up to you to take control.

My Challenge to myself this week, and to you is this: You must commit to a Food diary, write it all down.  Simple, Easy, Carry it around with you.  Take notes, and consider your "WHY".  Was it an emotional response?  Was it need?  Why did you "Eat" what you Ate, and how much of it? Did you even eat at all!?  

Here's How:

Research has shown that food diaries, themselves, make people eat healthier. If you know that you have to write down the 2 cups of ice cream you are contemplating eating then you probably aren't going to eat it!
