Weight Loss: Treat It Like a Job

I’m having a blast in Chicago right now, enjoying the sights, food, and my family. I went to the gym with my cousin on Friday morning and burned almost 700 calories, yesterday we roamed Millenium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago and I got 14,316 steps and this morning I joined my cousin at her running clinic and ran 3.5 miles before going on the architecture boat tour, so I’m definitely working on my fitness! So I hope you’re doing well, and if you’re struggling a little bit, maybe this post will help you. So kick ass!

(Author’s Note: This may come across as somewhat ranty. I swear to you I’m not yelling at you! 🙂 )

When it comes to doing what’s healthy for themselves, some people like to make excuses.

  • “I don’t have the will power that you do!”
  • “I just don’t have the time.”
  • “I hate working out.”

Know what I say to that?

It’s not will power that helps you lose weight. It’s not motivation. It’s not magically having spare time. It’s HARD WORK, EFFORT and DETERMINATION. If you master determination, hard work and effort, you don’t need will power or motivation, because those things go away when times are hard, or when you’re tired, or when you’re hungry. Allow me to define the differences between motivation and determination (because yes, they’re different, that’s why there are different words for them).
