So we are a little half way through this year, I am wondering if you are still on path for your healthy goals. Every year so many of us start with high hopes and motivation and either life, or ourselves get in our way. We blame the world, our job, friends, family or just any reason that sounds good at the time. Sooner or later we come up on the half way mark of the year and we either get really motivated, mostly from guilt of not staying on track, or we start to convince ourselves that we might as well wait, as the holiday season is upon us already.
I will say from the bottom of my heart that we Americans do have the best intentions, and we are very passionate about making changes, our downfall is the follow through and the perseverance to stay on course. Do I have a magic wand or a quick tip to get us headed in the right direction, No. I truly do feel that either being sick and tired of being sick and tired seems to gets us very motivated, as does a bad check up at the Doctor, or we possibly have an emergency health life altering situation. All of these tend to be very motivating, and it is kind of sad that some of us need them to get going, or to motivate us to get moving in a healthier direction. I think we just need to have that vulnerable talk with ourselves in the mirror first thing in the morning and remind ourselves daily that we deserve to be healthy, we can be healthy, and we should be healthy!
