Monday Motivation: Be Your Own Genie

Fat Andra use to pray for a genie in a bottle to magically appear one day and "poof" make her thin. If you are or if you've ever been overweight, I know that you know exactly what I'm talking about. But alas, there are no magic lamps or bottles, no genies and certainly no magic bullets or magic beans when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle.

Or is there? Two years ago I had an idea that I could be my own genie and make my health and fitness goals happen. I made (and continue to make) them happen. I became my own genie in a bottle. And so can you!

Starting right now, you can become your own magic genie. You can decide right now that overeating processed junk food is not the answer to your problems. No matter what the questions is (other than pure hunger) food is never the answer. You can decide right now that your body will benefit much more from a nice walk out in the fresh air rather than being sat inside in front of the television or the computer. You can decide right now that you are worth taking care of, that your health is priceless and not worth compromising for instant gratification of a snack cakes and fast food or zoning out in front of "reality" TV.

You do have a magic genie, he or she lives inside you right now. You only need to let them out!
