We all know how it works. You can only reap what you choose to sow. We can only achieve the dreams that we put forth the effort to work towards. And so many other wordings of the same idea.
Sometimes I need this truth to knock me upside the head.
Back in 2010 I put in major effort to lose the baby weight I had put on after back to back pregnancies with my two oldest boys. I was hanging on to about seventy extra pounds and hated the way all my clothes fit. I knew we weren’t planning on another baby for a while so I put my mind to it and worked hard. I watched my portions, I worked out four to five days per week, I said no to extra treats, and basically worked harder than I had in quite a long time.
