I didn’t workout on Friday. 😱😉 I intended to, and it didn’t happen. We were going to do it on Saturday, and guess what, it didn’t happen then either. At this point in my journey , it’s not my norm, but it’s also something that just happens sometimes. It happens to people in my groups all the time (because we are normal human beings), and they ask what they should do about it. ➡️Two choices: skip over the workout and hop on track with where I wanted to be OR do it today and catch up as/if I can.
GUESS WHAT?! There is no right or wrong.
The important thing is to check my mindset as I make my decision. I didn’t fail. I shouldn’t just quit. I have nothing to be ashamed of. Yet these are the common feelings that I see in people and I’m tempted to feel myself at times. The same goes for nutrition. One big event and I might as well push off my “start date” we often say. Too many treats, and I ruined the day! That all points to a diet mentality instead of a lifestyle mentality. There is no start date. It’s always a good time to start. If something happens that you didn’t intend on, you get a fresh start right away. Find healthy rhythms for your body, for your mind.
give yourself some grace friends, and do this because it feels good. Do it because you want to live longer. Do it because you’ll be more patient with your children. Do it because you simply want to be more healthy and be an example for those around you. Sure, 7 months postpartum, I’m still going for some numerical changes, but those don’t last if I’m also not working on my mindset.
in February, I’m running a group that’s going to focus on healthy habits of fitness and nutrition, but also focus on loving ourselves right where we are. God created you, and he did not make a mistake. You are beautiful as you are, but you can still work on making choices that will bring you deeper life. And those choices are gonna look different for everyone.
Want more info on my February group? Could you use some community, some tools, healthier patterns in your body and mind?
Let’s do it together! Send me a message for more information.
