I am writing this at around 3 AM, on a Saturday morning.
I have been working for about 45 minutes, getting ready
for my book release and just brainstorming ways I can
help more of you in the most effective, powerful, and
passionate way possible achieve your ultimate health;
but more importantly live your best and most fulfilled
life possible. (Sorry that was a long run on sentence).
I played in a football tournament last night, and while my
teammates left at 9:30 pm to go home to get ready to go
out to do a pub crawl, I went back home to go to bed by
At 2 AM I felt wide awake (I will most likely need to take
a nap after playing in 3 more football games today).
Why am I sharing this with you?
When you have goals, passions, and dreams that are BIG –
like you and I both do – there are certain things that you
have to sacrifice in order to get them.
In other words, if you want to be successful in your quest
for weight loss, more energy, more confidence, and so on,
you are going to have to do things that most others aren’t
doing, and what you currently aren’t doing.
As I was reading my Fit Moms For Life book and rereading
all the amazing stories in the book from the 31 women
whose transformations are featured, I worry that people
won’t realize or appreciate the many sacrifices those women
To live an extraordinary life, and to get extraordinary results
in your fitness, you have to do things others aren’t doing.
That might be reducing or eliminating alcohol, completely
stop drinking soda or any other sugar laden drink, saying no
to your friends when they go to happy hour, or getting up at 4:30 AM
to get your workout in, while everyone else you know is sleeping
for another 2.5 hours.
If you want something bad enough and have a big enough WHY
behind it, and know how much reaching a certain goal will mean
to you — I have a little exercise for you to do right now.
Write down 3 things that you need to change right now to make
your goal a reality. It might include things you need to stop doing
as well as start doing.
For me, I realized I was spending too much time watching TV and
on Facebook. For the past 6 weeks, I have virtually watched no
TV, besides a few football games, and I have nearly stopped my
use of Facebook.
Consequently I have done more in the 6 weeks then in the past
Hope this exercise helps you!
