Making Sacrifices (You have to 'give' to 'get')

If you have already registered for the Meltdown to Memorial Day Challenge, you may have received this as part 2 of your pre-Challenge homework assignment. If you have not registered yet, or do not plan on registering, no worries! You should still write down some short-term and long-term health/fitness goals. Each time you set foot into FTA for a session, you should have a goal in mind.

What are you working toward?

Once you decided EXACTLY what you want to achieve, the next step is to decide exactly what you intend to give in return for the goal you desire!

 There's no such thing as getting something for nothing.  You have to give to get.  SACRIFICE!

Before you start whining, stomping, or pouting at the thought of consciously ceasing wine and beer purchases….let’s talk about sacrifices….

Sacrifice is releasing something of a lower nature to make room for something of a higher nature.

 

For example (we already hinted at alcohol), you may have to give up late night TV so you can go to bed earlier in order to get up for a morning workout (no so awful, right?)

Or, chances are you're going to have to trade some of your favorite junk foods (dry your eyes) for more nutritious and supportive meals if your goal is to increase lean muscle and/or increase your health and fitness.

 

See, you're trading something of a lower nature to receive something of a higher nature.

I mean, really, in the end, what's more important…that late night sit-com and wine, or being healthy, fit and full of energy in the body you desire…..just in time for bathing suit season?

So, today I want you to add to your goal statement from last week… 

 

How will you achieve your goal?!

Meltdown Challenge people ("Melters"): You should probably be writing this down in preparation for your team Success Meeting the first week of the Challenge....... :)

Have a great day!
