The taste of success is sweeter than brownies

You know what pizza tastes like.

You know what brownies taste like.

You know what the second and third serving of ANYTHING tastes like. 

You know that one or two drinks is good enough. 

But have ever experienced the feeling of FINALLY reaching your fitness and health goals?

Seriously. Think about it. 

Have you ever completely executed the "plan"?

How many times will you start over?

How many times will you say "this time I'm going to stick to it"?

How many times will you convince yourself that the binges and indugences are all worth it and well deserved?

How much longer will you allow yourself to feel unhappy with your body?

How much longer will you allow yourself to feel tired, run down and unhealthy?

How many times will you avoid certain occasions or events because you don't feel great about yourself?

YOU ARE IN CONTROL. 

You owe it to yourself to feel happy, confident, healthy and empowered. 

What makes you feel better?...

The short lived 30 seconds of eating the second cupcake

or

the feeling of guilt and disappointment that you once again made another decision that takes you farther away from your goals?

While I love brownies and pizza like anyone else... I LOVE the feeling of being healthy, full of energy, happy with my body and have the ability to perform amazing things MORE than eating foods that I know won't do any good for me. 

Do I indulge in pizza and brownies here and there? Sure. But they're certainly not a regular thing or else I wouldn't be where I am today. 

I'll leave you with this.... 

I never get tired of feeling as good as I do.

I never get tired of not thinking twice about the clothes I wear because I'm not insecure about the way my body looks.

I never get tired of having the strength and stamina that I have worked to develop.

I never get tired of having the energy to play with my son. 

I never get tired of feeling great about myself.

I never get tired of loving myself.

I never get tired of feeling confident and achieving my goals.

The choice is yours... you either WANT it or you don't.
