OVEREATING HAS HEAVY CONSEQUENCES.
MIRRORS NEVER LIE…LUCKY FOR YOU THEY DON’T LAUGH EITHER.
I know ya’ll and I know how you like to challenge yourself! Let me give you something that would really make a difference in your life and you will show me how to go for it! When is it fun? When you see progress! Consider what it’s like when someone shows you a training method that has worked for them. You want to try it for yourself, right? You may find things to change or modify along the way that works better for you. That’s called personalizing …but when you see results…now that’s exciting and fun! What about how you’ve been working on that turn with your two-year old colt? Pushing a little harder in the gym? Practicing a dance move in the studio? You get the idea. Weight loss is like any other project…..A little better every day as you spend time and effort every day. Then one day you have made enough progress that you can see the difference! Now, how motivated are you? There’s nothing like the feeling of satisfaction when you are rewarded for your efforts. “How’d you do in the show pen today?” “I did good!” How fun is that?!
