At the beginning of this program, we talked about inner baggage, guilt, and things that weigh us down. I’ve kept my posts here to a minimum and allowed time and space for thoughtfulness. After all, anyone can give advice, pontificate, and wax eloquent. But really, the DOING is up to you. So how have you done on the internal part of this program? Have you let the mental chatter slow you down and prevent you from tackling the physical parts of this journey?
I’d like to come full circle for this final post of the SFLP. Have you uncovered those hidden things which hold you back from being truly and simply fit? Are you finding that your motivation to exercise or eat right is REDEMPTION rather than FOR JOY?
For the rest of this week, keep your notebook close by, and write down your thoughts on “doing for joy rather than for redemption.” See if you can find the source of your need for redemption in there. You might just find that you aren’t so bad after all, and not really in need of “fixing.” And then, maybe, just maybe, you might find yourself free to enjoy exercise and wellness because you want to!
