Nobody said it would be easy…

Have you ever noticed that the easy things are the ones that are not good for us? Seriously, think about it: Pick up any of your favorite TV dinners/lunches or any other pre-prepared food from your favorite grocery store’s frozen food section and read the ingredients. How many of those ingredients can you pronounce? But they are so easy to prepare, right? You just pop it in the microwave and you’re done.

I was reading an interesting article a few weeks ago, that whenever an important chain store opens up in a town, the obesity rate in that town increases. The reason the experts say, is  the amount of processed pre-prepared foods that this particular super-store sells. We have one here where we live, and I can tell you first hand how when I had to go there so that my daughter could use their restroom the other day, out of 10 people walking into the store, 8 of them were obese. I could say that I don’t care, but I do. I really, really do… as someone who was close to being obese and as a mom, I know how challenging it is to lose weight, I know how preoccupying it is to not know what to do about our weight and I know the many diet fads out there cause people to yo-yo into heavier and heavier weights. Yep, I’ve been there, I’ve done that and I’m glad that I was finally able to beat this tendency and actually do something to transform my fitness and health.

I worry about children falling into their parent’s footsteps. I hear about kids being bullied in school all the time because of their weight. It’s difficult enough to try to fit in, let alone, try to fit in with a weight problem. It hurts their self esteem. I’m sure that no parent in the world would want their child to grow up with low self esteem, I know that none of us wants to have low self-esteem. The problem is that many of us just don’t know what and how to transform this trend of eating to death. If we did, it wouldn’t be happening. Right?

The answer is TCP, time, consistency and perseverance. Those three little words which have been forgotten in our fast society. Think about it, we no longer have to wait til harvest time to pick up our produce, we now have grocery stores with a large supply of them,  hence the tendency to look for a fast and easy solution to lose weight. If we could push a button to fitness, trust me there would be a line for it, but then there is! Right in the comfort of your home, push a button, play one of the many fitness DVD’s and you have a trainer right there in your home to help you with fitness. Seriously! You don’t even have to drive to the gym. This is one of the things I love about the Beachbody products. They really did hire some of the best trainers in the U.S. to help you get fit. So now you have the time thing taken care of, you just have to work on your consistency and perseverance. That’s where I come in as your free coach. Beachbody pays me to coach you so you don’t have to pay me.
