Even with everyone saying:
“Matt, good luck with the sleepless nights”
Of course, its the most amazing thing in the world.
And that little old thing called ‘me’ time? Well, it becomes a thing of the past…
But I used to think that I NEVER ‘had time’ to have a bath before we had the babies.
Yet, now I have 2 babies? I have a bath EVERY evening…
And a powerful lesson for myself whenever I catch myself thinking ‘I don’t have time’ to do something that I know will make me happy, be it having a nice warm bath, going for a walk or treating yourself to some flowers instead of looking for a high through food..
So here’s a quick exercise to help you ‘make’ more time…
I’ll throw in 1 hour travel time each day <<< 45 hours
Child care? I often hear 30 hours per week from members on our body transformation programmes <<< 75 hours
You say you don’t sleep much, but we’ll say you get 7 hours per night <<< 124 hours
Cleaning, tidying, cooking and shopping? Let’s say 21 hours a week (3 hours a day) <<< 145 hours
168 – 145 = 23 hours in a week to spare!
But what it won’t tell you is how much time you wasted:
Cooking different meals for everyone..
That would leave you over 21 hours left.
And then 70 minutes (10 minutes a day) to track your food?
Because let’s face it, you want to change, right?
Get fit, have more energy, develop a better relationship with food and just feel better about yourself..
And I get that you know what to do…
But if you’re not doing the things you know you need to do because you’re worried it won’t work, scared of failure, or lacking motivation?
Well, ask yourself:
1) What changes if you life, confidence, how you feel, if you DO the things you know you need to do?
2) Do you with 100% certainty that you will fail?
So wouldn’t it be fun to find out what would happen if tomorrow you tried something new?
Even if it was doing 10 squats whilst waiting for the kettle to boil?
going for a walk at lunch time?
As let’s face it, the stuff that seems hard in your life will always keep coming…
Even if you get into the clothes you want to wear, get fitter, stronger, and improve your health…
As when you get better, new challenges will come..
(plus life will always be there to throw some more challenges at you along the way)
But the self sabotaging thoughts, F it mindset, how you respond to these situations?
Well, wouldn’t it be fun to see what would happen if you set yourself a new standard in the way you respond to these situations?
