You know all those reasons you keep mentally piling up as to why you shouldn’t change your life for the better??
Throw them away!
All those excuses you keep making to put off a good sweat session (and no I don’t mean sex…or do I?? ;)…
Throw them away!
You know all those “Fat” clothes you keep in closet as a “reminder”….
Throw them away! (OK, don’t do that…give them to your local Salvation Army or something)
You know those diet pills you bought cause you were pretty sure that for $39.99 you would lose the 20 lbs you wanted to in JUST 2 WEEKS!!....
Throw that non-sense away!
You know all that negativity you keep thinking in your head…
Throw it away!
You know all those people you surround yourself with who are actually bad for you??
Throw them away! (I don’t literally mean this…please don’t do anything illegal here…but cut them out of your life)
You know all the doubt that you place on yourself all the time…
Throw it away!
You know all that Spandex you bought to “someday fit into”…
Throw that shit away because it doesn’t matter what size you are, you should NOT be wearing Spandex.
STOP filling your mind and your life with GARBAGE!! It is this kind of garbage that sometimes weighs the heaviest on ourselves.
Sometimes the trash stinks and it needs to be thrown out!! And just like actual garbage…you will need to take it out more than once. The negativity wont go away forever, you wont stop making excuses forever…but if you remind yourself to “take out the trash” now and again, it makes life a whole happier.
I encourage you all to go read this post from my buddy @theantijared….I read this shortly after writing this post and I feel like it’s the pea’s in my pod so please read… The Anti Jared - IF
OH and one last thing….You know that 6 pack of beer in your fridge that you are not drinking??
Don’t throw that away….drink it, or send it my way!
Today was Oprah’s final show. As many of you know, I recently appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show for her Ultimate Weight Loss Finale Show. While I didn’t go crazy with tears or get too much into the hype of today being her final show, I did tape it because, well…how could you really not?! If you’ve ever watched Oprah (which I did a lot with my mother in my younger years) then you *needed* to see this show.
Oprah said *A LOT* of amazing things. A lot of things that touched me and really got me thinking. The wheels are turning in my head….But the one thing she really reminded me of, is being grateful.
I am so grateful for all of you…here reading my blog, tweeting away with me, “liking” my posts…this journey wouldn’t be HALF of what it is with out all of you.
Today I was blessed enough to appear in my local newspaper The Post Standard (the online article version is not up yet, but as soon as it is, I will post a link ) to celebrate my weight loss, along with 4 other amazing Central New Yorkers. I feel so honored, and it is yet another blessing I feel so grateful to have.
These things do not just happen over night…they do not just fall onto your lap. I never in a million years would have dreamt or believed that all of this would be happening to me. I say it all the time and I will continue to say it again and again…thank you, thank you, thank you! If I inspire you just an ounce of how much you all inspire me, then I know I’m doing something right around here….
