FALLING OFF THE WAGON ~ EMOTIONS

~ FALLING OFF THE WAGON ~

THE POWER OF EMOTIONS

  
We all fall of the wagon of health and fitness now and again, it's a part of life.  When emotions become overwhelming it is very typical to reach for foods that will literally make us feel better by increasing our serotonin, such as sugar does, but yet, in the end leaves us feeling worse when we come crashing down from the sugar high. 


Emotions are a gift to bless us to want to expand our awareness and enlightenment.  Without When you are upset know that it's just your higher-self letting you know that you are off track and that you need to redirect your thoughts or let go of limiting thoughts that have been keeping you stuck.





Emotions are very powerful.  Everything you do is based on emotions.  What you crave to eat is based on how you feel.  When you are reaching for a sugary treat, what you are actually doing is reaching for a “feel good” food which will increase serotonin in the brain which will indeed help you feel happier for a moment, only to come crashing down soon after and craving more sugar to give you that “sugar high”. 



You can train for hours a day but if you don't fuel your body with the proper healthy, whole foods for needed energy and nutrition to fuel and rebuild your body then you might as well just do aerobics and forget dreaming of having a hard-body.  Proper nutrition and weight lifting are the keys to transforming your physique!



If you fall off the “eating clean” wagon often and find it difficult to follow your diet or workout routine on a daily basis then you need to regroup and focus on releasing negative emotions that are holding you back and stuck from achieving your fitness goals.  Craving high fat, sugary foods often is a result of having emotional hunger.  By releasing, forgiving and allowing your higher truth to shine brightly you will begin to only crave healthy foods because you won’t have emotional hunger overpowering your mind.  Manage your thoughts and emotions to have more self-control and power over your mind. 


THE POWER OF RELEASING


If you’re struggling with habitual poor eating habits, do this simple exercise to assist in releasing negative emotions.  Sit quietly by yourself where you will be undisturbed and write down what’s bothering youThen read each issue and think about what you learned from each experience.  Think about how each experience improved your life, resulting in helping you to become stronger & more powerful.  If you haven’t contemplated the lesson to be learned, now is the time to do so, this way you will not have to relive the experience again in order to learn life’s lesson. Then give thanks for the lessons learned and rip it up and throw it away.  Then just let it go… Give it to Christ and know that you are divinely guided and protected at all times and that all is well.


On a new sheet of paper write down all of your incredible attributes as you think loving thoughts about your body, family & life experiences.  Write down the reasons why you are worthy of achieving your weight loss goals.  By doing this you will balance your heart, mind & soul which will enable you to have powerful positive thoughts of creation which will create new beliefs in your subconscious to enable your dreams to come true.


Reiterate your desires by writing your positive affirmations and goals with great intention in your heart.  Pour your heart & soul into your goals!  Be excited! Feel how awesome it will be once achieved as though you are living your dreams now!  You can achieve your goals!  Anyone can!  It doesn't matter if you're 150 plus lbs over weight or 5 lbs – you can have your dream body!  But you must love yourself unconditionally first for your body to transform with less effort and with ease.  Stay laser-focused on reaching your goals & dreams every day!  Remember, what the mind can conceive the mind can achieve.



BE TRUE TO YOU!



Being true to you will increase self love, inner peace, confidence and willpower. Its okay if you’re struggling to stay focused on your goals daily ~ don’t give up!  As you know it typically takes 21 days to create a habit or otherwise to create a new way of life.  Begin each day on purpose.  Start your day off with love & thankfulness in your heart to God for your magnificent body and for the mighty miracles in your life. 


 Start fresh each new day by resolving to eat clean, to move more and being optimistic about the joy of life and all the good that you receive each day.  Focus each new day as a New Beginning!  Make you a high priority in your life!  And rejoice in the tender mercies from above… and believe that life truly is remarkable each step of the way!


With love,
