WE ARE ALL HUMAN.
Let me state that first of all. As a busy working Mum, I get it and understand the pressures and the hard graft it takes to just well… sometimes tackle each day!
Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes getting fit is hard, but sometimes doing what you need to do to maintain and keep your levels of fitness is even harder.
Staring a new healthy life is hard and staying with that healthy lifestyle is hard. Eating well and losing the fat, well its just hard isn’t it?
Sometimes days and days pass by, life gets in the way and it’s damn hard just feeling like you’re keeping all those balls you constantly juggle, well moving.
But (and I know you’re wondering why my usual positive and upbeat tone has taken a somewhat negative edge… but bear with me)…
Moving is the key and the secret. Moving forward, even if it’s just the tiniest distance, towards your goals is movement in the right direction.
One positive and right decision at a time.
(Head out for that half hour walk)
Take a step forward, even if it’s just the smallest step.
(Graciously say no to the delivery of cakes that just arrived in the canteen).
On ‘those days’ – you know the ones – stress, work, relationships, family life, hormones, just not feeling ‘it’…just do ONE simple thing that keeps you heading in the direction you want. Just ONE thing that keeps you shuffling forwards.
Shuffling forwards not only make life seem a tiny bit better and help alleviate guilt, but most importantly, these tiny steps add up to big steps and achieving big goals.
It could be completing an extra set of exercises
It could be an extra bit of food prepped for tomorrow
It could be a quote you read (and re-read to motivate yourself)
It could be a mantra you say to yourself
It could be a piece of music that lifts you up
It could be a new class to try (I’ve got an offer on my group personal training course!)
It could be buying yourself a bunch of flowers
It could be booking that massage you promised yourself
It could be 1 extra small bottle of water compared to yesterday
It could be half a kilogram extra on the weights
It could be texting me and booking in for a free confidential chat and working through what it is exactly you want to achieve and me helping you shuffle forward with the right steps to get you there.
Anyway, you get my point. Whatever you do, just keep moving. Keep shuffling. You’ll get there, and if I’m not already, I’d love to help you. Text me and let’s chat.
