Are you Focused on What You Really Want?

Life is a series of choices – some of them good – some of them could be better – but nevertheless, we are the product of our decisions.

Even when we feel like we have no choice – we always have a choice. Doing nothing, avoiding making decisions – those are all a choice. So when individuals ask me about losing weight and tell me they’ve met with failure in the past – I simply have to ask them – “why are you choosing to live unhealthy?” The truth about our present state lies in the small actions, steps and choices we make every minute, of every day. These (sometimes) split-second decisions can accumulate to create larger victories or losses in our daily crusade for life’s successes. So if you are feeling tired, stressed, sluggish – or you want to lose 10, 15 or 30 pounds of extra weight – then what choices are you making every minute that will move you closer to how you want to feel or be? Do this today – be conscious of your choices (you make thousands of these each day).
Write down every choice you make that could positively impact your life and become aware of how different choices can create the change you want to see. For example – when you are eating your breakfast, you can choose the high calorie coffee drink or you can choose the zero calorie Green Tea that is loaded with healthy antioxidants. You can choose to walk a few flights of stairs to improve your heart health, or you can step into the elevator. You can choose to smile when you wake up in the morning – or you can choose to frown. Remember – how you feel is your choice. Whatever you choose – I hope you choose healthy!
