It’s not easy to get up a bit early to exercise or meditate or improve yourself in some way, but like Dave Ramsey says about money,“Live like no one else now so later you can live like no one else”.
This morning while coaching my Yogilachi TRANSFORM clients on their day 50 of 101 days, I shared photos of one of the participants. The change is phenomenal. But not unrealistic!
We had a discussion about where we are as a culture and how much we have been intentionally set up to be sick, fat, tired and not ask WHY?
I’m doing Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (again!) and I realized what he talks about with money applies to our health too!
We as a culture have been fed lies that it’s ok to be sick. Just take a pill for it. We’ve been manipulated into thinking it’s normal to be overweight, obese and sedentary. “Just have surgery and take another pill.” It’s this insane instant gratification mentality – “Here buy this to feel better? Oh you don’t have the money, here charge it… “.
No responsibility for your thoughts, emotions or actions- if you don’t like it – just take a pill or charge it or blame somebody else and then go watch reality tv or sTROLL facebook. UGGHHH!! Sorry, there is a DIRECT CAUSE to every EFFECT you have in your life – positive and negative.
At this point though, we can’t afford to continue to be this ignorant (IGNORE ants).
There is a health crisis – not just physical, but mental, emotional and spiritual. The symptoms are you being over weight, symptom of being unmotivated and continuing the same way day after day – sit at your desk all day, get in your car and grab fast food, sit some more. Then go home and plop down in front of the boob tube or your computer or your screen of choice and sit some more.
How can this be even remotely healthy, smart, good for you?
You know, it’s barely 7 weeks and 3 women have completely changed the trajectory of their lives – yes they’re down up to 15 pounds each, dozens of inches. But more than that, they are taking back their power of thought, their thinking about food differently, thinking about what they are doing with their bodies on a daily basis. They are aware of where they spend their time – the most precious commodity. They are aware and making wise choices of where they spend their money – instead of letting the marketing machine control where they put their money.
The results are amazing for these 3 women – and it makes me so proud and honored to support them! But you know what – it also makes me sad, because the ratio is something like 3 in 91 that actually DO something about their health on a daily basis – and NO taking a pill doesn’t fit the bill. It just makes one more billable person to the machine out there.
I believe you can and should be your own best advocate but until you are there, if you’ve read to here then send me an email and let me know you’ve had enough. If you are ready to take back control of your life you CAN!
Here is an upcoming event to support you:
21 Day Optimal Health Challenge. This session starts May 7, 2017 with a Practice Presence in the Park (it’s an awesome group awareness/movement is meditation) and you can join us live in Vancouver, WA or virtually around the globe!
I’m taking pre-registration for the Yogilachi TRANSFORM 101 summer session which begins July 17, 2017 ( 6 more spots available and training is in my home studio in Camas, WA)
