Adjusting to a healthier, fitter lifestyle takes TIME - and the most frustrating, disheartening aspect of it can be when friends or family aren’t as supportive as you thought they would be.
I remember when I once tried to run a marathon, (never done anything like that before), and on day THREE of training, my good friend said, ‘oh, you’re still doing that? How long you think you’ll last?’ Um -
"excuse me, but I can do what I said I would do!"
1. CLAIM every single day as YOURS - YOU choose what you are going to do to make your body and mind and soul a little bit more empowered today, a little bit stronger. After all, the Bible reminds us that:
2. Be comfortable with whatever your program is - If it’s going to a gym with a friend, pick a supportive gym buddy! If you prefer to work out alone, go for a run in the park, or follow one of THOUSANDS of beginner fitness videos on Youtube, right in your own room! Don’t let anyone or anything hinder or intimidate you from PROGRESS!
3. DANCE - Begin and finish every workout with 1 or 2 dance tracks - whatever your flavor of the week is! Consider it a pre-pre-warm up, because whatever it is about the music that makes you love it, will be a good motivator for you!
