Most people would say INTEGRITY is important and that it is something we all strive to practice.
However it is people’s lack of INTEGRITY that is the reason they never see results from their fitness program.
Stay with me on this before getting offended.
What is the definition of INTEGRITY?
Integrity means following your moral or ethical convictions and doing the right thing in all circumstances, even if no one is watching you. Having integrity means you are true to yourself and would do nothing that demeans or dishonors you.
So most people I know are good about keeping appointments and doing the right things…when it comes to other people.
But when it comes to themselves…they blow their integrity.
They don’t keep promises to themselves.
Not me – you might say.
Really? How did those New Year’s Resolutions go?
How many times have you said the diet or workout plan starts Monday only to have Monday pass and nothing happens? Or you start Monday and quit by the weekend.
“This time I’m going to stick with it.” But it doesn’t happen.
You have broken your word and your promises to yourself.
So when it comes to integrity with ourselves, we many times FAIL MISERABLY.
Too often we place blame on our kids, work, hectic life etc.
Truth is, we are letting ourselves down, not once, but over and over again. And until we decide to follow through and do the things we know we should be doing, we will never move forward.
Exercise Must Be a Non-Negotiable
In order to make fitness goals a reality, we must make our exercise NON-NEGOTIABLE and schedule it in – rather than just trying to fit it in.
What gets scheduled gets done.
The same goes for our nutrition. If you are truly serious about following through, you will do what needs to be done.
- Shopping for healthy food options
- Cooking and prepping healthy food
- Cutting back or eliminating the crap food and booze
- Tracking your food intake
I’m sorry, but when I hear someone say “I’m trying to lose weight” and then next second they are downing pizza, that is LACK OF INTEGRITY on their part.
- It’s time to start keeping promises to yourself
- It’s time to love yourself to take care of yourself
- It’s time to quit using BS excuses to justify poor physical health
Start being a person of integrity not just to others but to yourself.
I love the saying “when the student is ready, the master appears.” So if you want to take action but have no clue where to start, reply to this email and tell me what you want to change and why you feel it has not happened.
I truly want to help you move forward. But I need you to raise your hand and let me know you need help.
Let’s all walk in integrity from this day forward and keep those promises we made at the beginning of 2019.
This can still be your year and you can finish strong so go out and SEIZE it!
Dedicated to your results!
