Old Resolution vs NEW YOU SOLUTION

journey of 1000 milesJanuary 1st – the day gym memberships increase and restaurants see a temporary dip in their profits as so many of us make resolutions to put ourselves on a self-improvement plan which most of the time includes weight loss.

At the beginning of the new year, just about everyone I know has a new enthusiasm and determination to get back on track and get their weight off. So they make a New Year’s Resolution to do just that. The challenge for most of us when it comes to those resolutions is that all too often we quickly lose our focus. When we first make that resolution there is a brief focused interaction with our present reality. We admit we have a problem, we are fat! We know that we want to change for the better. Quicker than we can say, “pleasantly plump” our focus shifts to only looking ahead to where we want to go – that leaner body and that peak of optimal health.  We lose sight that our present reality is where we must begin the process of change. It is the choices we make today – not those yet to come someday. If we fail to make a wise choice today based on the truth of our reality we will face disappointment and the frustration of feeling like we blew it…again. The problem is we didn’t blow it – we just never left the starting gate. It is difficult to ever cross the finish line if we never truly begin.

If your New Year’s Resolution went nowhere and now it is almost March, take this very moment in time to refocus on your most inner spirit’s desire rather than your taste buds or stomach’s tyrannical reign over your life. Take a deep breath and verbalize what you truly want for your life…is it really that half-dozen donuts with chocolate frosting? Or is it to be able to walk briskly without gasping for air? Or to be able to play with your children or grandchildren without every joint aching from the excess weight? Or is it to be able to pull on and fasten your pants without having to lie down to do it? Or is it to not have to take so many medications for the diseases that have accompanied our wrong choices? Or is it best of all to one day wake up and say “wow, I feel stronger and more alive today”?

Regardless of whether you’re just getting started, somewhere in the middle of your journey, or dealing with the challenges of maintaining a healthy weight, the challenge for all of us is the same: to stay focused on what we want and continue to choose wisely.

Forget what’s happened in the past – you can’t change it. The past can only ruin and rule in your present and determine your future if you allow it to. Today, at two months into 2013, you can set your course for a different future – if you know what you want and have made the decision to go for it. Once you’ve done that and focused on what you want, all that’s left to do is make the choices today that will support your decision. Decide, focus, then choose wisely…

Did You Know?

ability to healDid you know that this is what Chiropractic is about…enhancing your body’s ability to heal itself. Your chiropractor, no matter how wonderful they are, does not heal you, but they do equip you to heal yourself.  Detecting and correcting subluxations, spinal nerve interference, unhinders your body. You are set free to tap into this magnificent innate ability that our creator God endowed in each one of us. It is so much more than relief from an aching back or headaches. God designed you in His own boundless image — not the fettered & limited version we have in our head or by which we’ve been indoctrinated by others and the world. Wouldn’t you like to know what you may have been missing? Don’t just roll over and accept the limits of your circumstances or your thinking. Be free! Get your spine checked. A new way of life is eagerly awaiting your discovery.

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works, my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14

Count the Cost

Often when people ask about the cost of a new health program it is because they focus on the expense not the benefits. We don’t consider that what we are really paying for is our opportunity to finally reach a state of optimal health.

The best question for us to ask would be, “how much are our poor health habits costing us”? Take a moment to think about it. What medications would we not have to take? What junk food would we not be enticed to buy? What larger sized clothing would we not have to buy? What seatbelt extension would we not have to buy? What extra plane ticket for our excess weight would we not be forced to purchase? What extra doctor appointments and parking fees would we not have to pay for because our joints have worn out? Often we choose the least path of resistance simply because we think it is easier to stay comfortable in our status quo. We settle for less.

So what value do you place on your health? I counted the cost. The cost of declining health was too high. I did not want my body to be a foreclosed estate, devalued and in disrepair. I did not want to settle for less. I wanted the best for myself. I wanted the upgrade to optimal health. Now I want that best for others. This is more than about the food you eat. This is about the rest of your life being the best it can be. How about you, do you want an upgrade in your health? Count the cost and choose the best for yourself. Let’s get healthy together.
