When you hear that word what do you think of? Sickness? Disease? Well ladies YOU are contagious! I don't mean your sick or you have a disease I mean your attitude is contagious. Have you noticed that when you respond to someone in a hateful tone you usually get a hateful tone back? Of if you smile at someone they smile back?
There are different ways you can be contagious. It could be in your tone, response or just in your face gesture's. But also you can be contagious in your journey of weigh loss, or health, or whatever your case my be. When you get excited about something it gets other people excited. I get excited about boot camp...I know that sounds korny but it's true! I get excited knowing that I am working my butt off to get in shape and to lose weight. Is it easy NO, but that makes it even better! When you work so hard for something it makes those result so much more satisfying.
As some of you know, my first day at Boot Camp was not a success. I distinctly remember Erica saying "Ok, lets get ready for our timed one mile". If looks could have killed she would have been dead! I said under my breath "I hate running, I DON'T run!" Little did I know 2 months later I would start training for a half marathon! It just takes that first step and that willingness to believe in yourself. Once you start believing in yourself other's will follow.
Since I started running, I have become CONTAGIOUS. Without my knowlegde, my actions are being heard. People that I never imagined have been asking ME for advice ...what I am doing, how am I working out, running questions. The reason is because they see me excited about what I am doing and they want that excitement. I am becoming the FIT chick I've always wanted to be.
I am not saying these things to pat myself on the back by all means, it's just exciting to know I have helped someone feel better about themselves and get motivated to get their butt off the couch. :-) See ladies we are ALL contagious! How are you going to handle that responsibility?
Love you guys...
