“I can’t even motivate myself to exercise”

So I wrote yesterday about why you need to be bit wary about using FitBits to tell you how much weight you should lose…

If you missed it, you can get it here

But what I go this question yesterday:

“I have a FitBit, but I still can’t even motivate myself to exercise. Can you help?”

We got chatting about her goals and what she wanted to achieve. Went quite deep actually with WHY she really wanted to do it…

You know, not just ‘weight loss’ or ‘health’…

But feel more confident, not be about of breath going upstairs, reduce risk of Type 2 diabetes & heart disease, osteoporosis, help manage fibro, more energy, spend more time with kids, and make everyday tasks easier and fit back into her ‘dress of truth’..

Because when it comes down to it. When you separate facts from feelings. And make exercise (or life in general) a binary question of:

Do you want these things?

It gives the answer you need (and a polite kick up the bum)…

Fact is, the research shows that even if you are overweight, being FIT and overweight REDUCES your risk of cardiovascular disease MORE than those who are ‘normal’ weight but aren’t fit…

So remember that next time you did your exercise and the scale didn’t move…

Especially if you weighed yourself on an evening…literally the easiest way to play mind games and trigger your F it mindset…

It’s going to take a bit of time…

(and trial and error)

I’m not saying that I can fix it today or pretend it’ll disappear with my ‘magic’ exercise…

I am trying to encourage you to begin managing the issue today by getting started…

And accepting that you just have to be a little bit better today than you were yesterday

(YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO IT ALL TODAY…especially with Christmas on the way)

even if it is 1 minute better than yesterday with your fitness (try the workout in the PS section below if you are stuck for ideas)?

After all, it might just surprise you how it changes your mood, energy, and productivity for the day, Julianne mentioned last week:



haha and here I am, writing a morning commentary on it 🙂

In all seriousness, if you feel brighter, switched on and more alert?

You may also some benefit if you seek food as a ‘comfort’…

So can  I challenged you to just get started today with the mindset of being better than you were yesterday (see workout in PS. to get started)..

Because if you don’t start and accept the now, it’ll probably consume you to the point you’ll find it even harder to ever start

(which is more exhausting and requires more energy than to just be better today)
