Who watched Biggest Loser this Season and did you watch last nights finale?
I watched and from very early on became a huge fan of Danni. Her team was wiped out almost immediately and so sometimes in challenges she had to do every thing herself but she never let it stop her, discourage her or get her down. With her team situation being she was the only one left.,who could have blamed her if she got discouraged. At that point the workouts were brutal for her, she was on her own and her chances of being able to stay each week before it went to individuals was not good. Somehow though she managed to dig deep and push through all those challenges. Every week I'd pray she make it through another week and every week she brought it and she became someone I truly admired. So last night I think I was even more nervous than Danni...I wanted her to win so bad. When she came out I was blown away she looked like a top model, she was ripped, her shoulders and arms were amazing, but most of all she looked so happy, so confident like she could take on the world and win. I've felt that way before and its an amazing feeling. Although I haven't felt like that in quite some time.
My fitness level has dropped to about zip....my eating habits are not where they need to be...I feel not sick but just kind of crummy. When I was losing my weight initially there was a point where the exercise and the healthy eating had my body almost buzzing with well being and I'd so like to get there.
Unlike Danni when challenges have come my way in the form of sickness or busyness and it takes me away from my workouts, or away from my focus on healthy eating I don't just pick right back up. I've had a very divided focus.
The result is this I'm almost 15 pounds over my goal of 155...I feel crappy...my body is not toned and I don't like how I look right now, my clothes are tight and it seems overwhelming to me because I keep thinking of all the work it will take to get where I want to be.
One positive thing I have been consistent about is feeding my mind to discard negative thoughts and replace them with positive. Today I watched a Tony Robbins video about how focusing on one tiny change can change your life.
I think of Danni...low self esteem, overwhelmed by her weight and her student loans 8 months ago. Danni made one decision try to get on the biggest loser...once there she decided every day to do her best and to make weight loss her focus. Now it blows my mind in just 8 months she has gone from being obese, out of shape, low self esteem to fit, healthy, beutiful, confidendent and has 250,000.00 dollars in her bank account...bye bye student loans. She will be appearing in a subway commerrcial more money, and she is such a crowd favorite I'm sure biggest loser will employ her in some capacity. She has inspired millions and those millions have loved her and sent her positive energy for her to fly on. Wow...8 months...and all of this the result of one decision. No way could she have ever dreamed she could change her life in less than a year to this degree.
This really got me thinking. My attention has been all over the place...I'm worried about finances and the fact that a job is not at least till now coming my way so I spend alot of energy and frustration trying to find that job. I'm taking a life coaching course but then defeat myself by piling on all the internet marketing things I need to learn and the start up capital I need to have a successful coaching practice, More energy wasted and negative overwhelming thinking that drains me there are just a whole lot of places where my mindset needs to be simplified and I need to make one decision, and focus on that. I can't control when a job comes, I can't control when money will come...but I can focus on getting healthy and let the positive energy flow out from that, and in the other areas continue looking, continue learning, but make getting healthy my main focus will help me to feel better overall.
Danni has inspired me and I really want to make a plan and put it into action.
Have a good day everyone.
