Thought for the Weekend

I used to love motivational quotes. In fact I still have a quote delivered to my inbox every day. Today I realized that I'm not reading those quotes every day like I used to.

It's not because I'm too busy to read them. It's because I no longer need a steady stream of quotes to be motivated. Living my life is my motivation.

Having just written that, I am going to share a quote I did take the time to open.

No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.” - Bob Moawad


I opened the email that contained this quote after realizing that I had deleted at least 12 without reading them. I like this one because I think it totally relates to our Healthy Lifestyle  journey.


Every day is a new day, every meal is a new meal so if you mess up it's easy to step back on track. But, if we allow that idea to give us permission to cheat on a regular basis- a little this, a little that......Well then, according to this quote we continually set off on the first day of our life but never really get to live it!


I don't know about you but now that I've had a taste of living the 100% Eat To Live  lifestyle I'm not going to settle for having to start over.
