As we are beginning our fourth week into our challenge, this quote by Clive Davis from yesterday’s Sunday Morning tv show hit the spot. In this day an age, true good ole American hard work is nearly lost, in my opinion. Many Americans expect change, results, and wants Right Now! “Make millions now!” “Lose weight now,” “You won’t have to take the dog out now that you have an imitation grass patch indoors!” (although, I think Heather could benefit from this at Midnight)…
Miracles happen right now. Results from Hard Work take time.
You may have entered the paleo challenge expecting miracles, but it’s going to take hard work over a period of time for you to see long lasting results for the rest of your life. This month is not about how many pounds you lost in 30 days, it’s about how your livelihood is going to be affected afterwards. You are changing HABITS, altering ROUTINES, and cutting ADDICTIONS for life to create a NEW LIFESTYLE. Over time, you’ll experience no regrets with the conventional food you’re not eating because you have overcome using food as an emotional or celebratory escape; you will embrace the flavors and satisfaction from meat and vegetables and THRIVE.
Convince yourself every day that you are a hard worker, that you don’t give up and that you have a powerful will inside you to make change.
