So I had physical therapy yesterday and last night was miserable. With crazy pain in my back I could not get comfortable to get a good night sleep. I am not sure what I did. I added one new exercise and pushed myself very hard at the other exercises.
I am sure this will pass as it feels more muscular than anything. So today I am doing what I do not do well. I am taking a total rest day. I just have to keep focused on the long term goal of being strong and fit. Not rushing back for any deadline. I would certainly like to be in a good rhythm prior to winter setting in. Yes, I realize today is only September 29th, but time is flying. I mean really flying.
I have noticed a few things. I am stronger and my pants fit better. Perhaps my core is tightening up. My arms a definitely more defined and my back feels a million times better. Now to make sure I double up my efforts with my diet. I eat generally good, which in many circles means I am not. I love to eat food. I love muffins in the AM. But I also need to lead by example. I have many customers and teammates that look up to me for guidance. So enough of the cutting corners. Back to basics. Cut the junk, increase the exercise as tolerated, and do the nutritional cleanse more often.
Cleansing is amazing. You can actually feel your energy coming back to life. You can feel the great things your body is doing and you can hear your billion cells yelling thank you! So why don’t I do it very often? No excuses here. Perhaps it is timing. Perhaps it is family circumstance. Whatever it is, does not matter. I have been doing this for three years now. I have to knowledge and skills to win it all. I just need my brain to agree to it. Don’t get me wrong. I have two shakes a day. Only drink water, coffee, and Isagenix energy drinks. My weight loss has not moved at all in two years, and I feel amazing.
I have put my family on alert. No more fooling around.
So what can I do to keep me motivated? I will look myself in the mirror every day and remind myself why I started this to begin with. I am not going to be on medications my whole life. I am not on any right now and I would like to keep it that way. Everything from Diabetes, heart issues, blood pressure, kidney stones, and cancer run in my family. I am going to do everything in my power to prevent this from happening to me.
The Isagenix lifestyle is so stinking easy. The food is amazing. The company is amazing. The benefits are out of this world. I am in it to win it, and either come along for the ride or get the hell out of my way!
