Today is Labor Day. I have to admit that I never really understood this holiday. Is it that we take off for a day to celebrate the fact that we have jobs, or is it that we celebrate the fact that labor is a good thing and it is what we need to keep moving forward?
Either way as you and I continue on this journey together, it will take daily labor to get to our goals. We will need to work at eating right, and work at getting our bodies moving, we will need to work at finding healthy food that we can enjoy as well as good ways to prepare food that we find less enjoyable.
It will also take work to stay away from high calorie foods that will not help us reach the goals we are working toward. We should celebrate that we are all capable of doing these things.
For many people today is the last day of summer and swim wear and other summer clothing will go on clearance. Here’s an idea. Go out and buy the summer clothes that you want to fit into next year and keep them out somewhere that you will see them. It will be a unique reminder of what your goals are. You could even buy one of those plastic hooks and hang them right on the refrigerator door. Today, try and think of new inspirational things to do to help you reach your goals. Tomorrow go out and labor to make them happen.
Happy Labor Day
