Stop Waiting - Start Now

IMG_1401Are you one of those people who wait till Monday to start their “diet?” Do you procrastinate until a month has gone by and you haven’t started moving towards your weight loss goals?

I’ve been there and have done the same thing. I get it.

I would eat unhealthy all weekend knowing that Monday would be different. But it wasn’t. I still grabbed the muffin as a sweet treat to get my sugar.

Oh the guilt. I felt like I had no control.

But I did have control. Yep…I just wasn’t using it. I was allowing myself to get weak in the knees so I could have a muffin top. I was being lazy.

I want to challenge you TODAY to start eating healthier. Start moving your body. Start thinking healthier thoughts about your body. Start loving your body NOW.

Waiting never works. One you get the impulse to start getting in shape, start that instant to lock in the inspiration.

If you go off course today by eating a fat-laden muffin or donut for breakfast, set back on track with lunch, doing this will give you the GUSTO you need. But if you don’t start NOW, you might lose the enthusiasm and fall back into your old habits.

Here is a delicious and ultra healthy way to start your day. This recipe is from my new 28-Day Body Revolution: Reset and Thrive. The program will be released this spring so stay tuned.

I like to keep things simple and easy so this will take only 5 minutes to put together.
