Is NOT an option.
NOT because I say so. NOT because it's a really great philosophy to develop on the path to health and fitness.
But because, once the journey is underway, you simply won't want to quit. It is no longer an option.
I noticed that, once my goal became one of health and fitness instead of weight loss alone and my body adjusted and became used to the healthier choices I was making, quitting was no longer an issue. My body won't let quitting be one of my options.
My entire being LOVES the choices I am making on this journey to health and fitness. I think that if I walked in a place and there were no choices other than refined sugar, carbs-carbs-carbs, fried foods, white rice/bread, etc., my physical self would have me running out the door before my mind was fully aware of what was going on!
As a matter of fact, those smells that used to send me floating through the grocery store and fast food places now make me squish my nose up. I find those odors nearly repulsive.
Those baked goods? All I can smell is the sugar. And the fast food places? I smell grease. ICK.
Once that first step towards health and fitness is taken, another one follows. And then another. And another. And, the next thing you know, quitting is not even a hint of a thought.
If you've taken the first step, what did you do? If not, will you?
