Everything we do in life has a consequence, small or large. Every decision and every action we take there is a positive or negative reaction.
It is the same with your lifestyle pattern. Every lifestyle choice we make has some type of consequence, either small or large.
Even the simplest choices, which seem minor at the time can add up to huge negative consequences.
For example, thinking that chocolate bar won't hurt you down the road? Think again. Cutting out refined sugars like the ones found in chocolate bars will help you lose an average of 10 lbs per year!
Another example is drinking alcohol. Sure its fun to go out a get a little crazy, but alcohol and smoking cause a significant negative consequence on your health for the long term.
On the flip side, Choosing to eat 5-6 servings of vegetables a day, eating healthy protein and exercising every day has a positive and rewarding consequence.
Look at the actions you are taking in your life. Are they the actions that have positive consequences, or are they hurting and destroying the quality of life that you want for the long term.
We must remember that self-gratification is not the goal for living. We must take a step back a realize that in order to live a healthy life we must forgo our impulses and make sure that we are choosing healthy lifestyle choices.
So the next time you reach for that chocolate think about the negative consequences that that one little piece of chocolate can do for you.
Take control of your lifestyle patterning and enjoy a fulfilling fitness filled life!
Until next time...
