Stay on Track
Hey there, 100 degrees….it’s great to see you! NOT.
So it officially feels like summer time. It’s hotter than heck, vacations are taking place, traffic is lighter during rush hour, and those tan lines are looking good! Maybe your regular wellness routine is on a little summer vacation as well? I know mine is. It is still important to stay on track with your goals even if life gets busy or motivation to stay active and eat well is not so high as it was 4 or 5 months ago.
If you want to see change, you have to change what you are doing. Changing our daily routine can be a challenge within itself because it is so comfortable. Challenge yourself to reach outside of your comfort zone. Challenge yourself to push beyond where you think your limits are.
Set Your Intention
Do you wake up each morning and set your intention for the day? Do you give yourself a few minutes to focus your thoughts and purposes for the day? Or do you smack the alarm clock (snooze for a few) and then spring out of bed to get your day moving and grooving?
Good Things Take Time
Give yourself permission to take your time and make progress slowly and thoughtfully. When looking to change your lifestyle (not just lose weight quickly), it will take time and patience. Be patient with yourself and with your body. You will see changes slowly but they will be LIFELONG changes! That is the different between a diet and a lifestyle. Create a LIFESTYLE you can maintain forever. There may be some tweaks along the way, but in the end, it is all about living our best life for as long as we can.
Clear Your Mind of ‘Can’t’
I often hear clients say “I can’t do that” or “I’ve never been able to do that”. My response: You just haven’t tried the way that works for you.
