So last week
I’m rushing from one appointment to another
Warning lights come on in my car..
Tyre pressure is low.
I have to stop off, go through a manual to find out what they’re supposed to be (or use my amazing friend ‘Google’ haha)
It’s an inconvenience.
But you know what?
It’s a lot less of an inconvenience than
Losing control of my car…
Wouldn’t you agree?
Well, why is it
That when it comes to this eating healthily and fitness stuff
Do we not take the warning signs seriously?
The snacking habits
The ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ mindset around exercise
I could go on…
Little things which
DO motivation to do..
It’s an inconvenience to exercise
To plan your meals around your day
So you don’t have to rely on willpower…
But you know what’s more inconvenient ?
Staying the same
Feeling rubbish about not doing what you said you would do
Beating yourself up
And the good news?
Just like I got my tyre fixed in about 30 minutes..
(turned out that there was a nail in the tyre)
You can turn it around TODAY
And completely change the way you feel…
You just have to take the first step
No matter how small
Whether it is doing a short walk
Writing down 5 things that make you happy and doing one of those things at 7pm TODAY where you would normally pick at some junk and feel guilty..
It’s about building momentum
Getting 1% better everyday
And building the nutrition and exercise stuff into your lifestyle
So you can feel better about the way you look and feel this Summer
(which is nice, too)
But so it becomes something you can do FOREVER…
So if you’re struggling for motivation this Monday?
What’s the COST of not doing the thing that you don’t want to do today?
