I hope you’re still filled with lots of HOPE and EXCITEMENT about your fitness goal! (And if you’re not, then keep reading!)
Maybe you’ve had this experience.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had more time and energy to work out?
Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to struggle with junk food cravings and you could eat healthy food more often?
Wouldn’t life be really awesome if your family and friends understood and went to the gym with you?
Wouldn’t things be a LOT easier if carbs didn’t taste so good and you could actually stop at the third chip?
Yeah, it would be nice, wouldn’t it. But life isn’t super easy. You knew that.
Your family will always be the #1 reason you can’t quite stay on track and get to goal, already.
But they’ll also be your most motivating reason why you’re not giving up this time.
Your job will never earn you enough money to pay for all the food you need to stay on track.
But you are creative, and you can make it work, despite the office drama and snacks that keep derailing you from your goal.
Your negative self-talk will keep repeating your mistakes in the past, and how many diets you’ve tried, and how many times you’ve “started over” with your fitness goal.
But you are going to get back up and keep going anyway.
You’re getting closer with every failure.
You’re learning more with every flop.
And you know what?
You’re done with trying.
You’re actually going to DO it this time.
Give yourself a second chance.
Even if, technically, you’re giving yourself a ninth chance to get things right. This is your second chance to get back on track and put your own priorities first, for once.
Write down one meal and one snack you can easily make for yourself at home. Keep that written note somewhere you’ll see it every day.
This week, okay? Not next week.
You’ll be amazed how that small babystep can catapult you into long-term success when it comes to fitness.
Don’t give up. I believe in you! You can do this!
