Being discipled and motivated doesn’t happen overnight.
It takes constant practice.
You won’t wake up one day just motivated to start something.
You also won’t automatically be discipled to do things consistently.
Many people see a goal weight as just something they have to achieve and then they can go back to eating the way they did or not exercising.
It doesn’t work that way. You have to work hard to get there and then you have to work hard to maintain it.
And this is true with so many things.
So don’t set yourself up for future failure by saying that once you’re (fill in the blank) you’ll be happy/satisfied/done.
Know that this is a lifestyle change. Not a quick fix.
These are all things we work on in my health and fitness groups. Making wellness a lifestyle not just a month long thing.
So if you’re ready to start living a wellness lifestyle and stop dieting or trying quick fixes, check out the link in my bio and let’s do this journey together!
Make sure you are hydrating, taking breaks, and eating healthy snacks during this time. Your body and brain need all the care they can get!
Also, don’t forget to get some sleep!!! Sleep in so important for learning and memory! Sleeping is when your brain processes all that information you’ve been studying and can turn it into long term memories!
So I must admit, I almost skipped my workout this morning... 🤭
I was feeling sitting on my couch, enjoying the fireplace, and Christmas tree, and thought maybe I’ll give myself and extra rest day for working so hard this week.
And I almost went through with it, until I thought, well how is my future self going to feel about this? *Internal dialogue* Well I’ve worked so hard this week, I deserve to take a break... but I felt so proud yesterday because I had worked so hard...now I’m just going to give up? ... well I can just start again tomorrow. No biggie... the women in my group are probably doing their workouts today, and I’m going to let them down? ... well mostly I’d be letting myself down... *internal dialogue* *runs down stairs, drinks so energize, laces up, presses play* We all have these internal battle with ourselves!
The key is not to let your mean girl/lazy girl/whatever you want to call it, win. ♀️ Yes, it’s easier to stay on your couch, eat an entire bag of chips, and call it a day, because you “deserve” it.
But, honestly, our bodies work so hard for us 24/7 that they deserve to be fed the best, treated with respect, and cared for.
Plus my workout was AMAZING today!
No one ever workouts out, eats healthy, and takes care of themselves and says they regret it. Think about that....
That face you make when your legs are on fire, but you push through anyway 🧐 I’m dying. 10 minute meditation 25 minutes with Shaun T Now off to have a great Friday full of all things MCAT and personal statements.
So what are you doing today to be better than you were yesterday?
Guess what?? There are 18 days until Christmas and 25 days until 2018!
2017 will be over in 25 days!🤭 Did you do all the things you said you would on January 1st, 2017?
How about that gym membership? Are you still using it?
Well I have good news for you!
You won’t need a gym membership in 2018 because you can work from home! Whenever you want. In your underwear if that’s your thing!
I have 4 spots left in my December group starting in less than a week and I want you to join me!
You’ll get access to to over 30 different workout programs and a new program coming out in January!
You get a meal plan and nutrition guide.
And all the support you need from myself and other wonderful ladies!
Let’s end 2017 stronger than when we started it and start setting our future goals that we’re going to crush in 2018!
I don’t have a set working schedule and I’m my own boss?
It’s actually really nice, especially right now, around finals.
I can choose when I want to work and when I don’t.
Also, I get paid for sharing my journey and helping others get started on their own healthy and wellness journey!
It’s nice to have some extra income now after leaving my full time job with a full time salary.
It’s my “me” fund. My fun money. My shopping money. Or saving money.
So blessed to have been offered this opportunity by a person who was an absolute stranger! Because I wouldn’t be exactly where I am without it.
This “coaching thing” has changed my life in more ways than I can describe.
One of the most influential things it’s done gotten me out of my comfort zone and teach me not to settle for anything in life.
