Fix the mind and the body will follow

I got to thinking this morning, as one does as one is getting Jacked on coffee...
Whatever I think ~ I become.   The power of intention.  Thinking positive.  Actually works.  I'm not saying that I have slayed that voice - the one that says I'm not good enough so why try.  But I've managed to put it on mute for a while, by starting a habit and building off of that.  I started going to the gym.  I wasn't really focused on working out,  I was focused on actually getting to the gym.  The act of waking up early and physically dragging my butt to the gym.  I started to become that person.  You know, the one that just goes to the gym and that's what she does.  Then I started to build off of that habit.  
The person that goes to the gym, doesn't also go to the store and binge in hiding on candy.  Nope.  She eats more or less healthy and doesn't have a dysfunctional relationship with food.  She also is organized.  
So that's as far as I got.....
Its a work in progress.
Fix the mind and the body will follow - I have faith.
Have a beautiful day!


  1. Love this beautiful post Vanessa!

    "getting jacked on coffee" dear God I DO love me some coffee! Ha ha!

  2. Getting to the gym is the hardest part and you've conquered it.

  3. I dig your new mindset. It suits you.

  4. I love this!

    I struggle with positive thinking so much. I'm always first to put myself down. However, I preach to everyone else to think positive! Typical. I need a role reversal there! I like that 'just making it to the gym'. Not focused on all the details, just that ONE detail. i'm going to try that!

  5. Faith is a huge part of the process. I have faith that you can make your vision of the person you want to be come true.
