Go on… admit it… you’ve uttered these phrases more than once… “I’ll start Monday” or “After the holiday I’ll….” or “Come the New Year…”
It’s all bullshit. That’s right, I’m calling bull cocky. Start days are just an excuse we tell ourselves so we can procrastinate whatever it is we want to do/achieve/work on just a little longer. And you know as well as I do once whatever magical day you picked as your perfect start day happens it only takes a small detour before you are searching for the very next perfect start day.
I lived in a perpetual I’ll-start-on-the-perfect-start-day for YEARS and it never got me anything but a higher number on the scale, a bigger pants size and even less confidence that I could actually make positive changes.
Once I threw out this mentality then I started to make progress. This #milestreak was no different. I started on a March 3, 2015 on a SUNDAY, yes that's right on SUNDAY FUNDAY. Nothing special about the day except for the fact I decided I was tired of talking about losing weight and not doing it. So I did.
Now, fast-forward to today April 24, 2017, I'm finally glad to say I DID IT. Yes, I did. Not only did I lose the physical weight that haunted me for so many years, I also lost so much emotional baggage that came with it. I learned to COPE with the not always perky and sometimes a total bitch called LIFE instead of slumping in my bed watching TV and eating my feelings (and the tub of Ice cream). So wherever it is you are now, weather it be just losing a little bit to shred out your muscles or losing a 5 year old kid (30lbs) LOL in weight, JUST DO IT! God, no wonder Nike sells MILLIONS of shoes a year. Its just glorious and true, JUST DO IT.
