11/04/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 5. November 2013 15:02

Today at workout with the trainer,  I wore a 25lb weight vest for several of the exercises.  It was very enlightening.  It made me more empathetic to how someone feels that is 25lb overweight. 
 It's tiring.  It is wearing on your joints and your organs.  After a bit of time it made me feel a bit depressed.
Empathy is a personality trait that I stress with myself and for my kids.  I had a wake up call in this regard about people and weight.  Its not easy to deal with weight issues.
-It's hard to change llifelong habits
-It's hard to get started
-It's hard to stick with healthy changes, especially at the holidays
-It's ruff to not feel good about your physical body, especially with added stresses from the holiday season. You can be your own worst enemy
Do yourself a favor if you can relate to any of these issues.  'Speak' kindly to yourself.  Try to make changes, but don't beat yourself up if you falter a bit.  Don't give up on the process!!  Do it for you...for your long-term health, energy, focus and personal peace...your personal best.
If you utilize someway that helps you stay focused and peaceful, write back and share it with all of us.  You may be able to reach someone in our audience in a unique way that help.
