I know I've been there before. It's that fateful day when you walk by a full length mirror for the first time in a looong time. Or your teenage nieces and nephews invite you to play a sport with them. It stings a little - going from what you thought you were to what you really are in mere seconds. The question is, what do you do when you discover that you are not as fit as you'd like to be?
2. Determine exactly where you want to go: What do you want each day of your life to look like. This is not the " I need to lose 50 pounds" phase. That comes later. This is the "I want to have the energy to play with my kids and the confidence to smile at strangers" phase. What do you want your talents to be, your hobbies? How do you want to feel? How do you really want to eat for the rest of your life? What do you really want to do on your day off? Specific performance goals, body image goals, wellness goals, life goals, etc. go here. This is not yet a comparison to where you are now, but rather a vision of what your best self would be.
3. Bridge the gap between your current and ideal self: Determine what it takes to change and do it. For this you will need knowledge, well-made goals, and immense self control. Seek accurate and trusted sources to help you gain these things. I love the idea of living life intentionally. Being out of shape (physically, mentally, spiritually) is the result of life happening to you. It is time now to happen to life.
