I have a 7-word question for you today. It’s short, sweet, and asking it will help you finish the year feeling strong and in control.

Even better, it will help you build momentum into 2021. Here it is … EVERY TIME you are faced with a temptation that will pull you off track with your health and fitness goals, ask yourself:

How will this make you feel tomorrow?

At some point this month you’re going to be tempted to put your goals on hold. DON’T DO IT.

It’s SO MUCH EASIER to stay on-track than it is to get BACK on track. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. 

I have never met a person who was happy about retracing their steps.

This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your holiday favorites – just be intentional about it.

Skip the grocery store cookie and have an apple or some nuts instead. But definitely enjoy your family’s “secret recipe” holiday treats and traditions!

  • If you don’t have time for your normal workout, do a quick 10-minute routine. Doing some squats and push-ups (or whatever exercises you choose) before your morning shower will go a long way toward keeping up your healthy habits.
  • Keep up with your sleep and self-care routines. This will help you avoid feeling stressed and overwhelmed!
  • Block off some intentional time to unplug, relax, and refocus. 

Personally, I want to start 2021 feeling energized and plan on making it an amazing year. I hope you join me!

You can do this!!

Setting realistic goals

Setting realistic goals

Every once in a while I get a panicked email or call from someone who wants to “lower their cholesterol down x points before their next doctor’s appointment a month from now“ or “get ready for a marathon in two months”. Don’t get me wrong: Those are all important goals … but they absolutely are not possible (at least in a healthy and sustainable way) in only a month or two!
