Girl, I'm about to be real. That's how I am. I don't see any good coming from sugar coating the truth or dancing around it. Here's my truth for you: You are in your own way.
In life, in health and fitness, in pretty much everything that we do.
Do any of these sound like you:
- I fell off eating healthy again
- I saw a cute guy and didn't talk to him
- I wanted to speak up but didn't
Do you notice what all of those things have in common? No outside force stopped you from doing those things. YOU did. That doesn't mean you suck, it just means that you gave into the voice in your head that wanted to win. The one that made you feel inadequate, nervous, scared.
Do you know how many times a day I hear "I fell off eating healthy again today"? I'm not upset, mad or judging this person AT ALL. I want success for not just my clients but ALL women on their health and fitness journeys because I know how hard this can be--if we allow it.
Here's The Deal
We have to stop looking at these areas in our life as a choice. YO--you have goals, you want to feel good and be the best version of YOU possible so why is it that we make our health a choice? Like WHAT????? Let's think on this for a hot second---maybe you want lose 10lbs, but you keep "falling off". First, yes--this IS a choice, to eat healthy or not. BUT..our health should be a non negotiable. Just like wiping out ass, it's really not an option to forget that if you don't want to smell and feel weird all day. That's the attitude we should have with out fitness. When that mentality is taken and put into place I truly believe you won't keep "falling off", because when the opportunity arises to fall off, you'll know it's not even a question as to what you're about to do next. You'll do the thing that makes you feel good.
I'm not saying you have to be a food Nazi AT ALL. I don't want that. I'm saying that you're not a person who "just can't stick with anything", I'm saying that there are non negotiables in life. You don't simply fall off, not speak up or not talk to that cute guy because you're a certain type of person. Those things happened because you got in your own way. Putting things like your health, speaking up for what you believe in, and wiping your ass should all be things that you just do. No matter what.
As you go through each day, know that you are in control.
If you like that boy, talk to him.
If you want to lose 10lbs, do it.
If you want to feel your best, eat right.
If you want to be confident, do it.
Create a list of your non negotiable things, that no matter what you won't falter in. Knowing those, there's no way you could fail.
I hope you rock the hell out of life today.
In Light & Love,
