I came across this motivational picture this morning and it really cracked me up!
The first things that came to mind for me were dentists, sharks, tidal waves and tornadoes. Really? These things could make me happiest? It think not!
However…then I remembered something pretty exciting from my day yesterday. I had a very special engagement to attend (I will blog on this later!) and all my jeans were in the hamper. I have two closets: one for the clothes I used to be able to wear and one for the clothes I am wearing now or those that run a little bigger. I am still on this journey to lose unhealthy fat and I have not reached my goal yet, but I am definitely making progress! I wondered about the ONE pair of jeans I knew I could not even button and thought may be I could wear a big sweater to hide beneath if ONLY I could get them past my thighs. I was afraid to even try, but I did. And guess what! “Sometimes the things that you are most afraid are the very things that make you the happiest!” Not only did these particular jeans fit, I had to wear a belt with them!
I contribute this happy jean moment (and day!) to implementing Shakeology into my daily regime. I feel better, I have more energy, I feel fuller and satisfied after my shake, and my cravings for things like chips, dips, salty foods and certain sweets have disappeared.
Some motivation makes no sense, but if you think about it, usually such truths make all the sense in the world!
Keep Choosing Consistency and think about adding some Shakeology to your diet…you will be delighted and surprised when you can get into your old jeans too!
