Good morning friends! Have you done anything for your health and fitness this morning? Do you plan on doing something during your lunch break? Or how about right after you pick your kid(s) up from school for some fun at the park? Or right after work? It doesn't matter WHEN you do it today, just MOVE! Now this morning, I have already had a KILLER workout in my fitness studio...TRX was NO JOKE today! I'm feeling strong...I'm feeling a great calorie burn of over 900 calories...and most importantly I'm feeling SELF-ACCOMPLISHED!
Now as I always tell you, it doesn't matter if you only have 5-10 minutes here and 5-10 minutes there. Go for a goal of getting in at least 10 minutes of MOVEMENT 3 times TODAY. If that means stand up at your desk and do some squats...sitting at your computer? Do some calf raises. Doing tons of laundry? Add some Side bends as you throw the laundry into the dryer. There's NO EXCUSE not to move today! EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS!
Always...always...always BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! If you have a big goal set for yourself for THIS YEAR, celebrate each little step you take to get yourself closer to making it happen! Do not let negativity get in the way of what's most important to YOU. Rather than looking into the mirror saying to yourself "ugh! Look at (insert body part here), I'll NEVER get it to where I want it to be!" Ummm....STOP THAT RIGHT NOW! YES, YOU WILL! Each time you take a moment to do something to promote your health and fitness, you are getting another step closer to your FITNESS GOAL. Did you get in 5-6 servings of fruits/veggies today? YAY! CELEBRATE! Not a big fan of water...but got in 64 ounces anyway? YAY! CELEBRATE!
Never stop believing in yourself! You CAN and you WILL accomplish your fitness goal!
One last thing, quit looking for the "QUICK FIX!" A lot of people with big weight loss goals expect the weight to FALL OFF overnight...well, it took you a long time to put on the weight so it's going to take a while to get it off. Remember, 1-2 lbs of weight LOSS a week is the HEALTHY amount to lose a week. You do NOT have to starve yourself to drop the healthy amount a week...you just need to MOVE and be at a 3500 calorie deficit by the end of the week for a ONE POUND weight loss. And don't self diagnose..."I'm allergic to GLUTEN (do you know what gluten is???)" "I have a thyroid issue (but I live at the McDonalds drive-thru)." Just be HONEST with yourself and you will start to see all your hard work and dedication pay off! So BELIEVE.IN.YOURSELF!!!
