With Valor We Can

Posted: March 8, 2012 in Mission

Valor: strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with firmness, personal bravery.

If we continue to attack our bodies with unhealthy foods and disregard exercise, our lives are in danger of ending far sooner than they need to.

While the actions of healthy behavior are not difficult, our ability to bring ourselves to perform them consistently is extremely difficult.

We must be brave enough to realize the danger we are in, and realize the strength we need to bring to this mission if we are to win it.

    It is tough stuff Patrick. I know it. Although I lost years ago, I have been living this for years & it is a life long journey. I have had to make the choices each & every day. And with age, it is tougher BUT the payoff is your life & being there for you & your kids & loved ones….

    Pls keep trying & never give up. Honestly, I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to just step back but I did not. Consistency & patience is so key!

    For some of us this will be a lifelong battle. There is no “goal” or “finish line.” For some of us, it will be an ongoing struggle that hopefully gets a touch easier every day we practice healthy living. It took me 10 years to put on the weight and get into a lazy lifestyle. I can’t expect just 1 year to cure that problem. I’m counting on at least 10 until it becomes ALMOST second nature. Keep fighting the good fight Patrick.

    We can’t ever give up!!! My strength was tested yesterday and I discovered that two months is not nearly enough time to destroy those old bad habits. Keep fighting Patrick!!! We can DO THIS!
