Stop holding yourself back. If you are unhappy, make a change.
Today I want to talk to you about one of my fave quotes of the moment. “Stop holding yourself back. If you are unhappy, make a change.”
This one means a lot to me because a lot of us grow up thinking that our parents, our superiors, our teachers, or our bosses have the power to tell us what we should do and what we shouldn’t do. That mentality allows our society to have structure but at the same time, it sculpts an obedience that traps people from living the life they they REALLY TRULY WANT.
You have to take a moment and remove yourself from the situation and understand that you do have control over your life. Who says you have to listen to this person? Who says that they’re allowed to make you feel bad? And who says you have to feel bad at all? This is where your own power comes into play. YOU are the only one in your life who can make things happen for yourself. You just have to want it and want it bad enough.
We turn excuses into shields to protect us from what we don’t know. And sometimes…that’s a barrier to achieving your own success. You are holding yourself back!! Why would you sabotage yourself like that? Why are you scared? You have this one life to live it to the fullest, so do what it takes to be happy. To me, being happy is being successful. It is the same thing.
I hope you like these motivational pep talks. Let me know if you want to see more! It was fun to film.
BLOGILATES MAY DIETBET starts in 12 days!
Also, next month, I am leading our 4th Dietbet! So far the Blogilates Community has lost over 84,583 recorded lbs! That is AH-MAY-ZING!!! If you are looking to lose weight once and for all, join my May Dietbet. Here’s what it’s all about.
HOW TO ENTER:
1. Go to www.dietbet.com/blogilates to join a community of POPsters who are ready to lose weight with you and support you on your journey!
2. Place a bet of $30 that you will lose 4% of your weight in 28 days. (If you are 150 lbs, that’s 6 lbs total and less than 2 lbs a week which is super safe.) Use my free clean eating meal plans and the Workout Calendar here or in the Blogilates App to make sure you make your goal!
3. May 4th is the official starting weigh-in date! Get in a bikini and take a before picture too! Then start training hard and eating clean. You’ve got this!
4. June 5th is the ending weigh-in date. Again, get in a bikini and take an after picture for memories! If at this point, you’ve lost 4% of your bodyweight or more, you will win a split of the pot! Our biggest game had $150,000 in the pot. Yup. A split of that :)
Every single day starting April 24th til May 20th, I will be giving away a $20 gift card to www.shopblogilates.com for the person who invites the most friends to the Blogilates Dietbet game! These are our “Daily MVPs”!
Then at the end of the game, I will announce who the overall MVP is and that person will win the GRAND PRIZE which is an Apple iPad Mini!
So…encourage your friends and family to do this with you! Like I always say, the more people you have around you who support you, and have a common vision, the more successful you will be…and the more successful they will be too!
Note: This Dietbet game is for POPsters who want to join a weight loss specific community! And even though you are “betting” you are not gambling because you actually have COMPLETE CONTROL over your results! Eating clean and working out is not like being at a blackjack table ;) The harder you work, the more disciplined you are, the better and quicker the results.
A note on cheating: Dietbet employs a team of people to check through your weigh-in entries to make sure people do not cheat. Either way…why would you want to cheat? Don’t you actually want to transform your body for real?
