30 Day Cowlean Challenge, Day Twenty-Seven: Field of Dreams



Hi guys,

Weigh-in: 204.6 lbs
Calories: 3000

Today’s post is going to be a quick one, I’ve been out all day and am completely exhausted! Luckily, it feeds into today’s topic, but you’ll probably be able to see how tired I am by its rough nature...

You may be aware of a very cheesy American film called “Field of Dreams”; it’s about a guy who makes a baseball field in his garden/farm and then the ghosts of baseball stars come to play with him (I think). Anyway, one of the quotes of the film is “build it and they will come”. Today I want to show you why this is such a silly notion.

A lot of people are waiting for the perfect future setting to get started. They might say things like:
  • When summer comes around, then I’ll go out and exercise, or
  • Once Christmas is over, then I’ll start researching ways to get healthy, or
  • I’ll wait until the doctor tells me I’m ill before I do anything

The list of examples is endless. Either they wait for the perfect setting to emerge for their actions to take place in, or they’re misguided by what they think weight loss will bring.

With regards to the latter, you can think of people who think that just by being thinner/healthier than they will be happy. While being healthy will make you feel better emotionally, you’re still not going to be as happy as you want to unless you use it.

How does my tiredness feed into this then? Rather than waiting for the perfect setting to write these blogs, I have to do them quickly and get them out the door. I could have put this post off to tomorrow and done two, but that’s not what I promised (yes I’m aware I’m behind by one day but I have a plan… - C).

So rather than waiting for happenstance to engineer the perfect situation for you to start your journey, get started straight away!

Until tomorrow,

Cowlean
