Are you someone who drops your own self-care to the bottom of your to-do list, when someone around you has needs, requires attention, or things get super busy or stressful.
If this sounds like you, you are definitely NOT alone.
It’s time to set some CLEAR BOUNDARIES because your health and well-being … and your goals and dreams … are WORTHY of your attention!
In fact, you are missing the point if you don’t think your goals are worthy!
Do you feel like you’re always starting over … or waiting to get started … or there are a few things that have to happen before you get started, next week, next month, or next year.
Maybe every time you get started something manages to sidetrack you?
Maybe it’s your family, your job, or you have some food in your fridge that you don’t want to go to waste, so you’ll wait till it’s gone before you get back “on-track”.
Or maybe you've started a new job and there is just no time or energy for anything!
We need to stop making this a habit.
You were put on this earth for a reason, and your needs and goals are just as valid as everyone else’s.
It’s time to start paying attention to them!
In fact, if you have a little voice in your head urging you to work out or make healthier choices, you are doing yourself a major disservice if you keep ignoring it.
The fact of life is that unless you TAKE ACTION and then KEEP TAKING ACTION, you will NEVER accomplish your goal.
That would be a total shame, wouldn’t it?
This applies to everyone … even myself!
Now, taking action doesn’t require anything fancier than DECIDING that starting RIGHT NOW, you will make time for healthier eating and workouts, or whatever changes you want to make … and then actually DOING IT.
And then keep doing it … every day! Make it a non-negotiable. Even over the holiday season. Even when your schedule gets busy.
It doesn’t have to turn into a big thing. You don’t need a huge plan in order to do this, or even a new pair of sneakers before you get started.
It’s about taking perfectly imperfect action … every single day!
It’s just about DECIDING to honor your health, well-being, and goals ... every single day!
It’s making healthier choices that align with your goals … and adapting them as you progress!
Over time, you will build momentum that will carry you forward. But in the beginning – or when things get busy or stressful – it will require decisive action.
And some days, it will mean improvising and just doing the best you can, given the circumstances!
And yes, sometimes it will seem extra challenging. But it will definitely pay off.
You will feel energized, happier, lighter, and stronger. And that will benefit everyone around you … which makes it a win-win, right?
Again, it’s not about perfection … it’s about taking ACTION!
