So one of the ladies inside our Fit For Life Programme sent me a link to an article
About a Joan MacDonald, a 73 year old woman
Who is now medication free
After losing 4 stone
Through muscle strengthening exercise and making some simple swaps to her diet.
In fact, here’s what it said:
“Joan has also changed her diet: before she would eat two slices of toast with jam and coffee for breakfast, a sandwich and fruit salad for lunch, meat and vegetables and dessert for dinner and she would snack on sweets, chocolates or nuts.
Now she sticks to a healthier meal plan: egg whites, cheese, meat, vegetables and bread or half a bagel for breakfast, coconut milk, protein powder, fruit and ice blended for a smoothie for lunch and for dinner she now has meat, vegetables and a salad.”
But I get it…
You probably know what to do but still don’t do it.
You’re not alone with that.
And it comes down to this:
A set of beliefs so strong that your behaviour conforms to them…
“I’m too unfit”
“I don’t have enough time”
“I’m too old”
Whatever it is
Your behaviour conforms to what you focus on…
Whatever it is..
And to succeed,
You have to forge new beliefs that allow you to do the things you want to do…
Often by linking enough pain to the beliefs you currently have that keep holding you back…
If you continue to believe this thought, what happens?
To your health?
And something that gets me going…
Is asking the question:
Who else does this impact?
Because when I realise that a belief I have may impact my family and daughters?
That gets me
To do the thing I am scared of doing…
But I know I need to do..
And I get it’s scary..
It’s like one of the ladies in side the progamme, Linda Baker…
Who has just got a place at the London Marathon.
In her words “I am a non-runner”….
It’s an exciting challenge for her
at 55 years young…
Linda will be sharing her journey,
the highs, the lows and the challenges so be sure to follow.
She’ll be on the podcast too soon talking about her “why” for doing it and the plan.
Hopefully she inspires one person to move forward by 1% today as that’s exactly what the next 6 months will be about for Linda! 😃
And speaking of moving 1% forward each day with small, simple steps..
