What holds you back?

I'm sure the thought of needing to get into shape, needing to make a change, needing to lose weight, needing to get healthy, etc, nags at you daily. Chances are, you have work to do. Changes that need to be made. Areas that need more focus. Whether you have already committed to healthy living, or are telling yourself its time, the nagging voice inside your head never goes away.

Along with that nagging voice that tries to convince you of all the reasons you need to get and/or stay focused, there's that other nagging voice that tries to convince you otherwise. It is a daily battle. No matter where you are in your health and fitness journey, this is true for you.

It's time to pay attention to what keeps holding you back. If you look deep enough, it's most likely the lifelong commitment and fear of failure that is to blame. We talked the other day about excuses, but if you dig deep enough and be honest with yourself, I am sure you will find that this is what truly holds you back.

Take time to listen to those nagging voices. Pay attention to how lame some of your excuses can be and stop letting them control your choices. It's up to you to take charge and be your own fitness boss.

We all makes poor choices when it comes to our own well being. Temptations are everywhere. And it's ok to indulge sometimes. But do you make more bad choices than good? Tell yourself you plan on making a change, but today isn't the day? I believe that a realistic lifestyle is good balance. I believe we find success there.

Realize that we are all genetically different. What works for me, may not work for you. You need to find your OWN balance. Figure out what you know you can live and stick with. Ask yourself what holds you back and work on finding ways to overcome whatever it is. Good balance leaves you with good results and keeps you from constantly feeling deprived.

I wish you the best of luck in finding your balance and finding what holds you back. Be sure to pray for God's guidance and for strength. And as always...feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or need help. Email me at
