Today I asked you on facebook what you thought was holding you back from reaching your goals and you guys knew EXACTLY what it was. I was very happy to see the community open up – you guys were honest and genuine with yourselves. I am very proud of you.
You see, the first step in achieving your dreams is acknowledging you weaknesses. You need to identify it and own up to it. Sometimes, it is really hard to do this because we all think we’re fine just the way we are, and we all choose to settle in one way or another. But settling…and being semi-happy with yourself just aint gonna cut it. Not for me at least.
If you want the body of your dreams, if you want to be sitting in that boss chair one day, if you wanna be driving that nice hardtop convertible in 3 years…you’ve got to fight for it. And it isn’t going to be easy, but let me tell you, if you put in the time, if you put in the effort, the heart, the dedication, the undying passion to move forward…the journey makes you stronger, it develops your character, and YOU WILL GET THERE. I promise you. YOU WILL GET THERE. It is possible. Always always always.
Life just works that way.
So if you haven’t shared your weaknesses with the Blogilates Community yet (you can read your fellow POPsters comments here), then please tell me right here in the comments below! I want you to be honest with yourself and share with the world…with the universe…what you know you need to attack! Don’t make it hard on yourself. Just tell me what the problem is, in the next exercise, we will come up with a way to deal with it!
Good luck and can’t wait to read your answers :)
PS – Are you guys ok if we start the Vegan Challenge on Monday? Also, Nicky says that we should do it for 2 weeks to see a dramatic change in the way we feel and look. He wrote me an email today and said that if done correctly, some people may lose up to 10 lbs or even more. I am not looking to lose more weight or anything (you guys know I just recently did for my bikini comp) but I am looking to explore the different diets that are out there. I just finished a high protein diet so I feel like I need to flush my system a bit. I am excited to be eating fruits, nuts, veggies, tofu, and grains! Yippee!!
Anyway, I will make it optional for you guys to choose 1 or 2 weeks, but I am going for 2. Let me know also if you’re ok starting on Monday. To go vegan, you just need to cut all meat, fish, dairy, and eggs. We will have a meal plan so I can ensure that you’re getting the right nutrients and complete proteins that you need.
