New Month New Beginnings

hello-september-quotes-1

So I made a decision yesterday.  Starting today September 1, 2015, I am going to work out everyday this month.  I am sick of carrying this extra person on my ass.  (That is how I refer to my extra weight).  I have purchased all the videos, spent money on Weight Watchers, and other weight maintenance programs and still nothing.  I have just reached a point in my life and on this journey where I know that in order to feel better and in order to do my best in all of the endeavors I am currently pursuing.

I have enlisted the help of an accountability partner to give me daily reminders to work out.  I plan to start with Shaun T and T-25.  I want to have a daily plan so that I will be able to know in advance what I am going to do.  My plan is to have a semi-significant amount of weight loss by my birthday.  This is one area in my life that I have not had the best success at and that is mostly because I have been the most stubborn and to be honest lazy.  As I prepare to age this year I want to make a significant change to my lifestyle and work to make the rest of my life the best of my life.

T-25

I figured the best present I could give myself is to invest at least 25 minutes each day.  I ask that each of my followers pray for me and for those who wish to join in come on.  You may not have T-25, but you can start somewhere, maybe just walking for 30 minutes each day.  I have already started making small changes by taking vitamins everyday and making a small attempt to meal plan.  I cannot do everything at once so for now my focus will be sticking to the workout. In my opinion, this is the best birthday present I can offer myself.  A healthy life.

Good or Bad

good vs bad

I believe that I have more good habits than bad habits.  But that is my opinion and at the end of that day that is all that matters.  I work hard for all that I have.  I am still a work in progress and that is what I hold true to.  At this point in my life I believe that the good habits outweigh the bad habits.

While the bad habits are sometimes necessary, it is the good habits that help me progress in life and that keep me on track as I grow and mature.  I am thankful for the bad habits because they have helped me to cultivate the good habits I have developed.  I think the bad habits I have such as procrastination, a small bit of disorganization and lack of exercise have all helped me to know how to find things in an organized mess, work well under pressure, and be in tune when those extra 5-6 pounds creep in.

The good habits,  health cooking, prayer, have all come by learning what did not work.  What is true is that you have to work hard at everything you do each and everyday.  The truth is that the longer and harder you work at what the good habits the more they become a way of life.  That is what you want to develop life habits.  Keep up the good work and know that all of the bad habits can be changed.
