Have you set a goal of losing weight, getting toned, fit…………..to end up failing? You know what I’m talking about that moment when you say to your friend……… “I started eating right but it only lasted one month and then I fell off the wagon”. There are a million more excuses….you know exactly what they are.
Why does that happen?
FAILURE TO COMMIT!
Yesterday at church my pastor spoke about commitment! As he was going through his preaching I thought about how this relates to people like you and me with our commitment to our fitness goals. So I hope that you will take a few minutes to read through this. Here is the short version….
1. The 1st step of commitment is DOING WHAT IS RIGHT.
2. To be committed you must be Godly.
3. Commitment demands FAITH IN GOD.
4. Commitment requires SACRIFICE.
5. True commitment is always REWARDED.
6. Those who are committed always LEAVE A LEGACY.
Here is how I relate it to commitment to fitness goals.
1. DOING WHAT IS RIGHT:
If you are going to commit to a fitness goal, you have to do what is right. That means you find a professional to teach you the most effective way to go about reaching your goal. Only then will you get on a program in which you do what is right. Most people just start going to the gym and “doing cardio” or “doing a few machines”, and they never get on a specific program tailored to their needs…….and then wonder why they don’t see results. They try diet after diet, but never really learning how to “EAT RIGHT” how to change your eating habits by changing your lifestyle.
If this is you, I urge you to take a step now! I can help, and I can do so through a variety of options. Whether you need more help with your DIET or with your WORKOUTS.

You won’t ever have to think or wonder or guess again when it comes to your diet. I did all the work for you. And my ladies on this BeFit Moms Fat Loss Meal Plan lose 2-6 lbs per week. All you need to do is literally go to the grocery store with my shopping list and then follow instructions and see the weight fall off! Check this out….
You can also maximize your WORKOUTS and stop having to guess as to what exercises, what order, how many reps, when to change them etc……. I did all the work for you there with my TOP most effective workouts that I do myself with my MMF Monthly Workouts.
2. YOU MUST BE GODLY:
Being a Christian of course I would tell you to be Godly, but in this case since I do realize a lot of people aren’t Christian I would say……….YOU MUST BE POSITIVE. Most people start exercising or eating right with the wrong attitude. They expect failure from the beginning. If you want to see results you must have a positive attitude. Expect GREATNESS instead of FAILURE!! Wake up every morning saying…… “It’s gonna be a good day”, “I’m going to eat right all day”, “I’m going to have a highly effective workout today that is going to take me one step closer to my goals.”. When you do this…..expect SUCCESS to follow. I can’t help this last note……and when all else fails…..call on God! Sorry, I just had to!
3. Commitment demands FAITH IN GOD:
Commitment for you can mean faith in yourself to reach your goals and faith in the professional who is creating the exercise and nutrition programs for you to follow. Without faith in yourself and in the person guiding you, you will be lost and will most likely fail to see results. Stop being complacent and step it up…..you deserve to be in the best body every! Remember, I’m here for you if you are tired of seeing mediocre results. I would love to send you my amazing Meal Plans that I actually follow myself to be in the best shape of my life after 2 kids. Or, I can send you my best practices when it comes to WORKOUTS by sending you my Monthly Workouts so you never have to wonder again or walk into the gym with no plan.
4. Commitment requires SACRIFICE:
Nothing in life worth having comes easy! You have to know that you are going to have to make some sacrifices. You are going to sacrifice some time for your workouts and you are going to be sacrificing indulging in your favorite chocolate or glass of wine every day. I’m not saying you will never have your favorite foods again. You are just going to cut down on them. If you get my recipe book “Eat to be Fit”, you will learn that you don’t have to sacrifice taste in order to eat healthy and lose weight. You can make delicious and healthy meals that will help you burn fat and get in shape. I promise that the sacrifices you will make will be well worth it. When you look in the mirror, you will be so happy for all the sacrifices you made because you will look and feel so good about yourself.
5. True Commitment is always REWARDED:
When you truly commit to a program, YOU WILL reap the benefits. In this instance the benefits will be you lose fat, get toned, get in shape, feel good about yourself, you have a ton of energy, and everyone is raving about how great you look. Commitment starts in the mind! Commit today, right now in your mind to get in the best shape of your life.
7. Those who are committed always LEAVE A LEGACY.
When you commit to anything in life and you do it well you leave a legacy. In this instance you can leave a legacy of health and fitness to your kids. You can teach them about commitment by committing to a healthy and fit lifestyle. Not only will you benefit from this commitment but your kids will as well, and so will all the people around you who are positively influenced by your commitment to health and fitness.
