Janet Jackson said it best: “Got my own mind, I wanna make my own decision when it has to do with my life, my life. I wanna be the one in control.”
YES!!! You’re the one in control of the way you live, the way you feel and the way you look. Don’t just give the keys to your life to your trainer. He’s supposed to be outside the car using hand gestures to guide you into the space you want. Take advantage of his knowledge and guidance to help you reach your goals. At the end of the day, you are accountable for how hard you actually worked, how you nourished your body and how much rest you got.
Far too many of us want to place blame solely on genetics, their environment, stress and medications. They all play some part...if you let them. When it’s raining outside, you drive slower to avoid an accident. You can’t control the weather, but you can control your chances of getting to work safely by driving slower, turning down the music to be more aware, taking a less traveled road, etc.
Your trainer can suggest ways to better plan your workouts, meals and bedtime routine so that all those excuses just become old excuses that you don’t let control you and get in the way of a sexier and healthier body.
