One Resolution for 2015 – Don’t Stop
Regardless of what you think about politicians, it can’t be easy for them to open themselves up to the ridicule and scorn of the election process. Their resolve to complete what they set out to do in the face of it is admirable.
And imagine how difficult it is to pick themselves up and do it all over again when they fail. But if they stop, they’ll never win.
You can get an idea of the difficulty of the battle from the ‘never give up / against all odds’ themes of many campaign songs.
While not as popular in Canada, in the U.S., most presidential candidates have ‘official’ campaign songs. 20 years ago, Bill Clinton actually got the 1970s rockers Fleetwood Mac to reunite after he chose their hit, “Don’t Stop (Believing)’, for his campaign. In 2000, George W. Bush picked “I Won’t Back Down”, by Tom Petty, for his successful election bid.
What About You?
You’re on a campaign. Your campaign to eat healthier foods, get better nutrition and manage your weight is no less difficult than getting elected to public office. Except your campaign doesn’t just last a few weeks or months. It lasts a lifetime.
Quitting seems like the easiest thing to do when you’re trying to lose weight. If you quit, you’d get to enjoy all those delicious foods and snacks that you’ve been missing, and you can return to ‘normal’.
But your old lifestyle isn’t really ‘normal’. An unbalanced diet, full of processed foods that contain excessive amounts of empty calories, is no way to live. If you return to it, all the effort you have made to get to where you are is wasted. You lose.
And that’s the point, you’re not on a campaign to lose weight or eat healthier, you’re on track to live a better, and longer, life.
So, as easy as it may seem; don’t stop trying to live a healthier life.
What do politicians have that you don’t? None of them get elected or are able to do their jobs without the support of others. The campaign trail is travelled with expensive speech writers, publicists, managers and groomers in tow. But weight loss is often tackled completely alone.
It doesn’t have to be. The nutrition and weight loss specialists at Herbal One are ready to be your ‘support staff’ to help you win the battle.
