There will never be a shortage of people trying to steal your sunshine and it usually happens when you are feeling good about your self, your path and your efforts. It’s unfortunate. It’s real life though. Maybe it goes something like this...you are locked in and finally committed whole-heartedly to your health and fitness goals. You have never been so on point. You are following your plan to the letter and feeling on top of your game. Then...someone comes along and starts to nitpick, criticize or make fun of what you are doing. They may even make it sound like you are doing something ridiculous or just plain wrong.
There are some women who can walk out of the hospital wearing their pre-pregnancy jeans after delivering their baby…that certainly was not me and most likely, not a high percentage of women either. I don’t even understand how that’s possible, yet it happens. My body was so whacked after my second child, Sophia, I swear I was more swollen and just as huge leaving the hospital with her on the outside of my body as I was when she was still inside of me! LOL. Seriously. I had people still asking me when I was due…months after I had already delivered her. SMH.
Absolutely I agree that faith is stronger than fear. I also understand that faith goes beyond praying and sometimes praying is not enough.
Not everyone reading this is a Christian and that is ok because spirituality comes in many different forms and levels…and spirituality is a connection that is unique to each of us. No matter who or what you believe in, praying for a desired outcome is not enough. If you are not spiritual, wishing and wanting something to happen is certainly not enough either. I’ve had this conversation with a handful of my clients and friends and recently, it came up again but this time I feel compelled to speak out about it.
It was Liza’s personal journey of getting fit after having two children that led her to switch careers and become an internationally recognized Certified Fitness, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach to women across the country. She understands first-hand the struggles and challenges that women, especially moms, face in the quest of a healthier way of life.
