One thing I’ve almost never had a hard time with is working out. My problem has always been with having the motivation to work out. There’s a big difference. Once a workout begins, I’m in it – focused and determined. But it’s the getting to the beginning which the hard part. Just showing up is half the battle. So if you can figure out a way to get yourself to show up, you’re half way to your fitness goal. That is the truth.
So, in that vein, I have decided this week to let money help me with my motivational ineptness. I know that if I put money into something I’m usually going to work it like it matters because I don’t want to lose money. No one wants to do that. At least, that’s the premise, right?
After nearly five years of being a member of the Beachbody community, I finally invested in the company and became a coach. If you’re not familiar with Beachbody by now, they are the company that offers, Insanity, Turbo Jam, Yoga Booty Ballet, Turbo Fire and many other fitness programs along with the ultra popular Shakeology by the P90X creators. I purchased Turbo Jam in 2006 and have been doing it ever since. When I first got to my optimum weight in early 2007 it was through consistent use of Turbo Jam. And I still love this program, doing it several times a week.
So, I’ve committed not just to my goal of fitness and transformation, but also to my business. I’ve now made it my job to workout daily. My transformation will be my key to success with my Beachbody business. And I’ve put my money down to insure I will make that happen.
I’m starting on the Shakeology (finally) and I’m excited about seeing how the results pan out for me. I’m terrible at dieting (as you can probably tell from my past fails on other programs) so I’m hoping that the Shakeology will give me some foothold in my diet mess. It’s not that I eat poorly, mind you, it’s just that I sometimes don’t control myself the way I should. It’s a fine line, and I tend to step over it a little too often. And of course, living in a place where I’m surrounded by great wine, amazing chocolate and the best beers in the world doesn’t really do much to help my cause.
So, here I go…I’m off and running, looking forward to sharing these experiences, too, as I go along learning even more new things. My business sites are up so feel free to go check them out. And of course, if you are ready to start that P90X you’ve been putting off, feel free to order it from me! 😉
To a healthier, happier and longer life.
