Last week I was eating out when I happen to over hear a conversation regarding Oprah Winfrey and her latest weight gain. A group of four ladies were discussing why Oprah is fat again. They were saying it was her personal trainers fault and how could he allow such a thing to happen. Their discussion continued about how Oprah is paying him good money to get her in shape and he wasn’t doing his job. So I asked myself who really is responsible for keeping Oprah healthy, fit, and slim.
Here we have Oprah who can afford the luxuries of having a personal trainer to get her in shape, a personal chef to prepare healthy food, and whoever else she needs to help her accomplish whatever she wants to achieve. So with all these people at her disposal, how did she get fat again? Did her trainer stop pushing her to do her workouts or develop ineffective routines? Did her chef start substituting healthy entrees for trans fatty filled, sugar laden, empty calorie entrees? Or is there some other reason? Could it be possible that regardless of how many tools are at our disposal you have to have desire?
Her trainer can only workout with her an hour or so a day. He can push her, he can make her sweat, but Oprah has 23 other hours to screw things up or make poor choices. Her chef can prepare healthy meals but Oprah has to want to eat them. Getting in shape and staying in shape is a constant battle that needs to be fought with persistence, consistency, and personal desire. If you aren’t constantly making healthy food selections and engaging in a regular exercise routine then all of your previous hard work and sacrifices will disappear. Life can be stressful at times and it sometimes is easier to reach for the unhealthy “comfort” food. Sometimes we would rather sit around watching T.V. rather than getting off our butts and exercising. But you have to ask yourself, do you want to make being healthy, fit, and slim a roller coaster ride of ups and downs through out your life or do you want to get in shape and stay in shape? You need to find the desire to not throw away all of your hard work. You need to remind yourself of how good it feels to be fit, how much better your clothes feel, how much more energy you have to truly enjoy life. You need to keep that internal fire burning to maintain what you have accomplished. I can’t give you desire, I can only remind you of reasons to have desire but it really boils down to you and only you. We are all accountable for our actions or lack thereof, no one is to blame but ourselves. I’m sure Oprah will agree as she has the tools and knowledge of what she needs to do to stay in shape, but sometimes our busy lifestyles, stress, and long days get in the way of making good choices consistently.
The good thing about Oprah’s latest weight gain is that she is bringing awareness to this constant battle that millions of other Americans face as well. As a result, more people will be motivated by her to start exercising and making healthy habits. However, motivation will only last for so long. You need to make sure to keep your desire to get in shape and then stay that way by surrounding yourself with people who are going to provide positive reinforcement, support and accountability. Our motto here at www.homefitnessequipmentexperts.com and our training site www.homefitnesstrainingtips.com is WE PROVIDE THE TOOLS, YOU PROVIDE THE DESIRE. No matter how much good advice and guidance you receive you will not get in shape and stay in shape if you don’t have desire and take action on that desire!
