The Power to Choose

Aren't we lucky to be able to have the power to choose who we are and what we want to become.  I think it is pretty powerful to have the ability to be whatever we desire.  Now, I don't think that this comes easy.  In fact I think it actually causes me to freak out just a little.  Remember, I was committing to you months ago about how I was going to change the way I approached myself and my body.  First off, let me just reiterate the words I wrote here
"I have committed myself and family to eating healthier.
For three months I will document my progress. I will give you weekly updates on the positives and negatives of Living the Life. I will share with you my experience of becoming a beautiful person from the inside out."
NOW let me give you the definition of commitment
  • the act of binding yourself (intellectually or emotionally) to a course of action;
  • the trait of sincere and steadfast fixity of purpose;
So as you are aware, I have not achieved my three month goal.  The problem that most of us have is that we give up to easily.  When things get a little difficult, most of us just quit.  When we loose focus or don't have a goal, we just give up.  Now, this is where things get amazing.  We have the power to choose.  The power to choose whether we make new goals.  Whether we wake up early or sleep in.  Whether we eat the donut or grab the crispy apple instead.  We are powerful!  I think that is pretty AWESOME.  So, if you have not maintained top performance - make new goals.    If you have gained a few extra unwanted pounds - make new goals because we have the power to choose.  The power to choose if we will be fit and healthy or not.

My kids are the best example to me of setting goals and living them.  I watch them each and every day plan new activities out and how they are going to accomplish them.  Their current goal is racing in the spooky cross cx race that is coming up at the end of the month.  Brian is currently building them up a cross bike.  I think they will really enjoy it, and hope it helps them set new goals for in the future.

Welcome to a new attitude in women's cycling and a first in women's specific titanium and steel custom bikes. We know females....because we are females. All women share a common interest. We want to feel comfortable, confident, and strong on our bikes. We also want to look good while riding hard. At Bellarosa we build bikes to fit you using only the finest materials. Our bikes our built in house one at a time from start to finish. 100% handbuilt in the U.S.A. So guess what? We no longer have to ride boy bikes. It's alright to want to ride a bike designed specifically for you. At Bellarosa we can build your dreams.
