Motivation – Making it Stick

Okay, so you’ve chosen your workout routine, you’ve committed to changing the way you eat and approach fitness. You’ve decided you want to make the change. Now what?

Now comes the easier part. Part of me wants to say it’s really the easy part. Deciding to make the change was the hardest decision. Purchasing the program or finding the program and committing to it a tad easier. Getting up and doing the work, well that’s just following through so should in some ways be a bit easier. Though I can totally see where it is still a challenge, and not truly “easy” until you get set in the routine.

So what do you to to make it stick? You get up every day and use the tips and tricks I’ve discussed this week. You work every morning to change your mind set to a more positive one. Reminding yourself that you can do this and why you are making the change. You fight to change the negative self-talk to a more positive mind set and remove the harsh words and harsh talk. You get up every day and eat healthier, prepping meals and snacks for the day and taking them with you when you know you won’t be home. You eat from the meal plan and menu guide you’ve created and dedicated to help you achieve your goals. And you press play every single day. You get up and get active, doing the workout or going for that walk, dancing to the songs on the radio. Whatever that activity you’ve agreed to commit to.

Will there be bumps in the road? Absolutely. It wouldn’t be life if we weren’t presented with challenges to overcome. But that is what they are. Challenges and tests to make sure you REALLY want this change. I’ve heard it said that anything worth having is worth fighting for. Are YOU worth the fight? Abso-freaking-lutely! You are the perfect you that the Universe created, and you are doing the work to make you the best you that you can be. Yes, there was a lot of “you” in that last sentence. Because in the end, this is YOUR journey. Own your successes. Own your “failures”. Own every single step on this path. Because at the end of the day, the only person you are absolutely, truly, 100% accountable to you YOU!

Yes, you have friends, family and acquaintances supporting you and cheering you along. But in the end, it is YOU that you see in the mirror every morning when you wake and every night before you go to sleep. You are the voice in your head determining just how far you are going to push and just what goals you want to achieve. Myself and all of those others cheering you on are merely the support staff on this journey that is your life.

We care, we support you. But you are the one doing the hard work and making the hard decisions. Do we think you’re worth it? Absolutely. So take our support, our help, and our belief in you and make it work FOR YOU! You can do it. And when it gets hard, ask and we’ll give you that support and that hand up to make your goals a reality. But we can only help and bolster you if you first make those steps to take this journey and truly make it yours.

Are you ready to get up and do it? Are you ready to make YOU a priority? If so, ask me how. I’m here. I’ll listen and work with you to find what works for YOU and support you every step of the way. Why? Because I want you to find your healthy, your fit, but most importantly your HAPPY! You can do it! I believe in you.
