Maybe You haven't been so good to your body. Maybe you are like me and find yourself over 40 and totally paying for all that playing that we did in our 20's and 30's. The Guilt is already creepin up on some of you as you read this right now. kind of like my Initial reaction to my weigh in as I started the Resolution Reset this week.
At First Glance at the scale, I thought I was seeing things, maybe I need better glasses I thought, so I quickly stepped off the Scale, shook my head a little, adjusted my readers a bit and set the scale back to zero before taking that Brave Step ONE more Time....
And So it is.. my eyes were telling me the truth...The numbers were exactly the same as the first time I stepped on... They are ENTIRELY too high for me, For my Height, For My health and for my own happiness...
Now, Before anyone goes crazy thinking I'm just being to hard on myself, that I need to learn to Love the Body I have and that I shouldn't be so hard on myself. I want you to know, I am not being too hard on myself. The Pain and regret I felt in that Moment when I KNEW the Scale was actually working and giving me a proper reading was quick to be Squashed by my SUPER WOMAN ME.
My Super Woman Me Said:
'Ahh, yes, well Honey, Thats why you have already begun to get on track again. You already Knew you didn't feel good and Now I am here to remind You That YOU DO love the body you are in and I can Prove it to you.
You Began eating Clean again...You Began working out again, you began to LOVE your Body so much That you are willing to And Doing what ever it takes to Care For it...So , Don't be Mad at where You are starting.... Don't be mad about Anything. Let go of your Regrets and Shame.. thats not YOU anymore, Thats The OLD you.. The One that went out all the Time and drank too much Booze, That Old you is gone,
She served her purpose And You Could Not Even Come close to Who you are Now With out Her. So Honor your old you and See her off Proper and Step into WHO YOU TRULY ARE NOW '
I write about this publicly because I have a Voice to inspire, There are many women and men that feel Like Shit when they look at themselves or get dissapointed in poor choices they made... And I'm here to Let each and everyone of them Know that They do not have to continue on Feeling that way about themselves. That They Have a Super Power with in themselves Born From Their Older self and I am here to Say YOU TOO CAN Honor and Love The Body you are in.

Go As Organic and LOCAL as Possible when Purchasing Food. avoid Boxed and Canned Food and Eat Often throughout the Day.
