Tweaking the Greatness Within

If you didn’t know I’m here to tell you, YOU ARE GREAT.  Did you hear that or should I shout it again? Okay YOU ARE GREAT.

That is something I need to share because you are and it is good to hear it from someone else but okay to acknowledge it to yourself for you.  I once thought and was raised to believe you allow others to tell you you’re good, great you should not do this yourself.  This is such a a cow field and acres of yeah you know.  Waiting on someone else to admit your greatness may take a life time, maybe not that long but years.

How does greatness within relate to a workout well it does and I will explain.  There are so many people thinking working out will improve the person they are for the wrong reason.  Workouts will improve your physical appearance and your mindset about your appearance, improve confidence and make you feel like you own it (it is whatever your journey in life is).

NOW, did you know your physical appearance is already great whether you need to lose 5, 10, 40 or 100 pounds.  You just need to tweak it to get it to your desired healthy weight or size.  However know if you are working out the size change may come before the weight change.  The non-scale victory always show up first.

Tweak your workouts and nutrition will make a difference in your physique BUT I need to tell you THAT GREATNESS has always been there. Yes your mindset of positive, the confidence has been there you just had it locked in or only allowed it to flow slowly. SO yes tweaking is necessary.  Just as we tweak our wordings when writing, talking, our clothes, hairstyles, makeup, shave  don’t forget how GREAT you are.

To a new decade of GREATNESS.

New Decade, New Year, New Resolutions or Beginning of New Lifestyle

Happy New Year!!!!!. There are several things I now as well as you- 2020 begins a new decade, a new year and for many new resolutions.  It’s the resolutions I’d like to focus on.  Why?, well I once made resolutions and they were great, I followed through for a minute which means about a month for me then slacking and more slacking and then the resolution just vanished especially on my fitness journey.

What changed I did, instead of resolutions I opted for a change of lifestyle which is not or shall I say was not an easy transition.  I had to first commit to myself and rate did I really want to make changes, which ones I would commit to no matter what.  I wrote a letter to myself for me to look at every day which detailed my WHY and it was for only 30 days.  As I said it was not an easy transition for me on my fitness journey at first.  Noticing small changes in myself assisted me and I was able to extend for an additional 30 days and the journey begin.

I’ve learned it was easy to make a life style change, evaluate, adjust versus a resolution or resolutions.  It was easy to toss a resolution first because I wasn’t committed and sometimes it or they were not realistic but a life style change with whys and adjustment for me was so much easier.  I’m thrilled I recognized what works for me.

How about you? Are you beginning a fitness journey and made resolutions for the journey? I ask are they realistic? Will you stay committed? I know you can but make it a lifestyle change begin with small changes and stay 100 percent to it and every 30 day evaluate and adjust and you too will recognize the difference in resolution and life style change.

Happy New Year, Happy New You
