It’s the beginning of summer. The time of year when we all think a bit more about weight, weight loss, how we look as we shed those winter clothes and dive into these warm months full of a lighter schedule, pool time, lake time, beach time, all those things that we love about summer. It’s also a time following a Holiday weekend so we think about reigning in and being more disciplined.
Discipline is a huge topic in the fitness and health area, but also in so many other areas of our lives, right?
In our world there are always excuses for just about anything. Why we don’t have time to exercise. Why we “need” to pick up dinner at the drive-thru. Why we can’t take the time to take care of ourselves. How hard it would be to re-visit those hobbies we love. It is SO easy to hold ourselves back from things that could bring us so much energy, strength and joy. Is it a question of laziness or lack of discipline?
At some point you just have to be a grown up. You have to pull up your big girl pants and do the right thing. You need to do whatever it takes to make yourself do what should be done.
If you are not self-disciplined as far as taking care of yourself, you know there will be ramifications.
Do you need to eat healthy foods? Of course.
Do you need to exercise? Yes.
Is it important to prioritize yourself? Duh. Yes!
Are these things always fun? Nope. Sometimes not even a bit. But, again, it’s time to be a grown-up and do the right thing for yourself over the fun thing.
Having the self-discipline to nurture your body, from the inside out, is THE ONLY WAY to create a healthy lifestyle.
You honestly do not want to trade an easy day today of eating fast food, putting off exercising your body and taking care of your self for days ahead of aches and pains, doctor appointments, sitting on the sidelines unable to participate in your great big beautiful life!
Is it always easy? No. Are you going to be perfect? Heck, no.
I encourage you to make healthy habits now that can carry you forward from today to beyond. BUT, it is all about Progress NOT perfection!
Think about where you want to be in one year, five years, 10 years and beyond. How are you going to get there?
Make a plan. Write it down. Find a partner or accountability group. Then simply move forward one day at a time. Practice self-discipline.
Work on your self-discipline like you work on anything else. Do something every day that helps you progress forward. You are your health and I’ve said it before – you are a big deal! It is up to you to quit those excuses and make yourself a priority.
**We have a NEW GROUP program starting NEXT WEEK!! You’ll learn how to nurture yourself with appropriate macros, control your carbs for the best results for your energy, hormone balance, and weight loss, workout to fit your nutrition and prioritize your well-being. This is NOT a diet! I want you to learn how to eat intuitively so you can enjoy your nights out, vacations and celebrations! We will have LIVE check-ins WEEKLY for accountability and support! I can’t wait to get started!
Our first week will be getting familiarized with the program and then the following week we jump right in!!
I hope you’ll JOIN HERE!
Enjoy Your Day!
