We’re heading into a “special” time of year for your fitness: The holidays! And not just any holiday – but the holidays of 2020. I want you to be ready and fired up!
A couple of weeks ago I sent an email about finishing the year STRONG. But there’s something that happens this time of year – it’s like clockwork. During the holidays, a surprising number of people say they are “too busy” to workout and stick to their routines.
I wanted to talk about the “too busy” excuse … because you are WAY TOO IMPORTANT to let that get in the way!
Earlier this year, we had a wakeup call to be grateful and thankful for our health – and we also had a lot of extra time on our hands.
Even with that extra time – just an observation here, not a judgment – many of us let our routines slide. Because we were too stressed, too worried, and everything felt too uncertain.
Don’t let being “too” anything stand in the way of your wellness! It’s time to get ahead of it, and the time to start is NOW.
You’ve probably heard of SMART goals before. It’s all about setting specific, measurable goals that are attainable, relevant to your life, and TIME-SPECIFIC. They have a deadline!
Well, we have a big deadline coming up – Dec. 31, 2020.
What can you do between now and then so that you feel fitter, healthier, and more energized than you do right now? What can you do NOW so you’re not playing catch-up in January and start off the New Year with momentum!?
Let’s plan ahead and take action on the things we CAN control.
Today, take a few minutes to think about changes you can make. Things like:
- Planning your meals ahead of time
- Finding 20-30 minutes to exercise 3-4 times a week
- Meditating 5-10 minutes a day
Then, take ACTION! I’ll be in your corner, cheering you on!
I get asked all the time: “How do you stay so motivated?” Fact: I don’t! …. So I work at it! Motivation is like a muscle – the more you flex it, the stronger it becomes.
I’ve got a quick post today with a very simple message…. Keep going! If you’re struggling right now with your goals, it’s NORMAL.
I’ve got a tip for you that’s so simple it will blow your mind and make you think “dad joke”.
Want to know the secret to reaching your goals? It’s setting goals that you can reach. I know that sounds like a no-brainer, but hear me out.
You know I like to focus on the positive, right? Well, I’m about to tell you how NOT to reach your goals this year. Because there’s one big mistake you can make that can push you into a HUGE trap – and you’ll end up feeling frustrated, burned out, and like a quitter.
