2 most common things I see when working with ladies to #levelUP their health and wellness.
#1: They are OVERWHELMED Women running on 4-6 hours a sleep per night juggling work, home, family, kids, themselves. These ladies are TIRED! And if I were running on 4-6 hours of sleep, I would definitely not spend my finite energy left on food and fitness!
#2: They are OVER COMMITTED I’m not talking about socially or professionally; nope. I’m talking about women undertaking the next extreme program when they’ve decided to “get fit.” They’ve spent a long while being sedentary eating whatever so they decide the best decision is to do the hardest and most intense exercise and diet out there so they can lose 30lbs in as little as 3 months.
Which one are you?
The road to wellness is long and windy but if you have a great map, you’ll always find your way.
Here’s a simple formula to hack your health:
Intention + Plan + Action = Habit = Consistency = Results = Motivation
Set your intention
Get a solid well balanced plan (from me)!
Implement Action (do the thing) over & over
All THAT will create a Habit
Habits keep you Consistent
Consistency gets you Results
Results keep you Motivated
If you are having trouble starting or continuing a fitness routine, do this:
Every day for 30 days, I want you to set your phone timer for 5 minutes and start it. Get dressed in exercise attire, put on your exercise shoes and fill up your water bottle (while the 5 minute clock is running). Whatever time is left on that 5 minute clock after doing those things, I want you to do 10 push ups and 10 squats repeating the two exercises until the 5 minute timer goes off. Once the 5 minute timer goes off, that’s it. You are done. Do this every day for 30 days. Feel free to mix up them two exercises to whatever exercises you want. But stick to the 5 minute clock rule!
It may sound tedious or arduous; but, building a habit that will stick requires daily action; daily action when you want to do it and especially when you don’t want to do it!
Will you try? What do you have to lose?
