If you watched it a few weeks ago, he actually had a sit down with everyone & they were talking about why they felt like they had these addictions to food & eating & not taking care of their bodies.
They all had excuses.
They all had reasons.
Past hurts. Rejection. Trauma as a child. Loss.
Using food as a form of punishment seemed to be key. Or using it as a way of making people stay away from them. A way of making a shield around them to make people keep their distance.
Food & overeating & obesity can run so much deeper then some people can even imagine.
Especially if you've never dealt with the issue.
But one lady was talking about her story & she made the comment about how she didn't deserve to be happy or to find love.
Bob stopped her right there & said, 'That voice you hear in your mind is a demon. What he is telling you is a LIE. Stop listening to that voice!"
First thing I thought when Bob said that was PREACH!!!!!
He went on to say how we have to believe in ourselves because no one else can or will do the work except for you. & when you listen to the voices inside of your head telling you that you're not worth it, or you can't do something, or why bother trying... you just give in so easily.
I think that's so powerful when it comes to making healthy choices.
Whether that be losing weight.
Giving up smoking or drinking.
Adapting healthier decisions.
What it all comes down to is knowing in your mind, body & soul that
YOU ARE WORTH IT.
Every good decision. You are worth it.
Only you can change that mind set to make better decisions for yourself.
So today, remind yourself that if you hear anything within your mind telling you "why bother"... tell that voice where to go... & make a healthier decision in one area of your life today! Prove to yourself you are MORE then worth it!
Onto my quick recap of Week 4 of my Half Marathon Training
Monday - Run 2.87 miles
Tuesday - Upper Fix
Wednesday - Run 2.64 miles
Thursday - Total Body Fix
Saturday - Run 5.20 miles
Sunday - Yoga with Adrienne
Getting in all my work outs...
I actually felt really good & strong on my 5.20 run too. I went out a little panicked because I forgot water & hate not having water for anything over a 5k - but with it being a nice day, I didn't get too dehydrated. I thought if I got dizzy or nauseated, I'd call Ricky to drive me down some water - but knew the UK game was on... so if I were to pass out, I'd just have to pass out. I ain't interrupting him with that!
I had 2 mental games playing with me this week though.
1. Dental issues. My jaw & face are still killing me. I have an appointment in 2 weeks to go back & I can get more answer then, but I know its just all going to lead to more appointments, more work, MORE MONEY. Sigh.
|This is actually what I've looked like at the end of every workout|
Not to mention, the pain is just sitting on my nerves making me just really short-tempered at everything. I'm glad for the workouts to work off some of that stress, but moving & pumping the blood makes the pain worse. Talk about a double edged sword. I just keep trying to hang in there & remind myself this won't last forever. it won't - right?
& the other mental game?
2. I gained a freaking pound this week. I know - I KNOW - 1 lb isn't much of anything - but my scale after hitting 35 lbs has just coming to a screeching halt. & for some reason, when I start running, it makes my appetite increase so I have to really keep myself in check.
I'm nervous now for my weigh in on Wednesday. If its up anything else, or I haven't at least lost that 1 lb, I'm going to punch something. ... oh, who am I kidding. No punching. I'll just cry.
So we're heading into week 5 where I was hoping more runs outside would take place... but the temps this week will be in the 20's. I know I SHOULD run outside... we'll see. I did just buy some lined leggings & I found a running coat I have & I do hate the treadmill for anything over 3 miles. We'll see how life goes this week.
I'll just keep PRESSING ON!!!!
