Consider this interesting question: What if, by some miracle, you woke up in the morning in the body you want (not somebody else’s…I mean YOURS, in decent shape). What would you do? How would you feel? Would you leap and laugh and pinch yourself? Would you try it out…maybe power-walk a few miles or dance the cha cha or run around the house in your underwear?
This is really fun to think about – and it leads us to the next question: What would you do to keep it? How would you have to live in order to hang onto this new healthy body?
What kind of eating, moving and intentional care does it take to have the healthy body you want?
Since the chances of this morning-miracle happening are slim – how about the chances of it happening backwards instead? What if you started caring for the body you have right now just like it already is the new one you want? That new body consistently eats mindfully and moves intentionally – even when it doesn’t want to – because the pay off is so worth it. So what’s our big take-away?
What if you started waking up each morning and living like you have a healthy body:
You choose like you’re fit.
You eat like you’re fit.
You move like you’re fit.
You live like you’re fit.
You think like you’re fit.
You see where this is going… You would end up quite fit!
Not by in the morning, but you would certainly end up feeling like doing the cha cha in no time.
So go ahead…stop wishing things were different. Stop hating on your body. Turn on some salsa music and jump start your miracle right now!
