We just got an excellent email from a subscriber to the Tip Of The Day program, and we thought that it would be helpful for those of us looking to stick to the weight loss or fitness journey. The question we had asked in one of our coaching calls was "are you brave enough" to do it. What was interesting about this email is this person was in law enforcement. Already plenty brave, but found it helpful to apply this question to working out:
Please forgive me that I cannot remember which of you stated this, but it was just a comment about starting and sticking to the weight loss / fitness journey, and the statement was "are you brave enough?". Well, to me, that's a challenge! I am in law enforcement and consider myself pretty brave, so to consider the work out on that level really helped. I am now trying to figure out if I am "brave enough" to run a half marathon this year. That's a bit harder than being challenged into getting out for a 3 1/2 mile run. But, when I'm tired, I ask myself that question, and not being brave enough is not an option, so it keeps me going.
Thank you for what you do, and for so candidly sharing your own experiences with everyone! Best of luck and continued success!"
