Well day 7 ended pretty well for me. The birth of my baby daughter at 11 o clock was a momentus occasion and she came in at 7″15 so a good weight. Both mother and baby are well, but no definite names yet! Will let you know and that’s why i’ve been quiet on here today!
A special thank you to midwife Becky who was outstanding, she has recently given up smoking, and i have invited her to get with the programme, up to her and hope she makes the right choice, i’m sure she will do well!
Glad to see most of you are doing well over the first 7 days, most of you say that you haven’t felt so good for a long, long time. For many of you, its been a struggle this week, but you have come through it. Some of you have had good days, some bad, but all of you have realised it’s not about being perfect, its about doing your best with the resources you have.
Those “resources” are pretty powerful as it happens, it’s just that most of you don’t use them enough. I am fortunate to have had a new baby come into the world tonight, and hopefully she makes the right choices most of the time, like i hope her brother does.
How many of you have made choices that you consider “bad”? Well i’ve got news for you, its a pretty big club you’re in and most if not all of us have made choices we are no longer proud of. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and it’s time to realise that it’s not the cards you were dealt, it’s how you play those cards. The past does not equal the future, this means just because something has happened in the past, it doesn’t mean it has to affect your future, so that you never try anything again!
Would i be on here on 0.55am on day 8 after i just got home hospital if i didn’t care and want you all to improve? Before you ask, the hospital wouldn’t let me stay and i go back tomorrow. This is blog that asks for no money, all it asks for all of you to do your best and change your life for the better through eating well, exercising as little more and with more purpose, and allowing this process to really allow the self-belief in your life that has been missing to sky-rocket!! It can really be done and with most of you, the early signs are good!
So you all have the same choices going forward, no matter what has gone on before. Is there any one of you that can’t make their families proud of the physical improvements you are making, and and are about to make? Is there any of you that really can’t do 3 inside workouts this week, and 2-3 outside workouts to make youself so much better inside and out by next sunday? Is there any of you that can’t make a healthy shopping list up and finally get to the supermarket and really commit to eating fresh and healthy foods for the remaining 11 weeks? Or are any of you going to give up on yourself and not reach that potential you always knew existed deep inside of you?
Those who commit right now to another good week will be ten steps forward, those who are dubious about it, need to try it and see if it really works? I stake my reputation on here EVERY DAY to say it does, and i will debate these principles with anyone who cares to ask why this way? It is based on science and tried and tested principles, be consistent, use the resources on the site, and communicate with the valued members on here, IT ALL HELPS!
We are here, week 8, let’s do it!!!!!!!
