do you do the #sunday roundup?

…Monday. New week. Clean slate. Fresh start.

Even as a Honolulu personal trainer, training clients both in person and online, I used to live by the mantra #cleanslate. Weekends filled with binge eating & excessive exercise; guilt & shame with a vow to “Do better on Monday.”

Starting and restarting is so exhausting, isn’t it?

To feel bad and unworthy with a sliver of hope to be better, to be good, to be adequate if you can only stick to this thing on Monday.

I’m here to tell you, to give you permission THAT YOU DON’T NEED A CLEAN SLATE!

How many clean slates have you started only to wind up at the same result – a constant loop of the same story like that Drew Barrymore movie 50 First Dates.

Look, I get it. The desire for a “clean slate” can be helpful. But it can also block you. If you find yourself making a “fresh start” every Monday – it might be time to recognize that this approach isn’t working for you.

I don’t have all the answers. I know that there is no right or wrong answer here. Everyone is different. We all have different motivations at different times in our lives.

But this is why having a coach in your corner is key. As your coach, I help you realize:
-That habits aren’t created instantly like your messaging. It takes time, consistency, effort & most of all, patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day kind of thing, ya know?

-That your physical environment is THE KEY to your success just as the key you need to unlock your house door. Without the key, you ain’t getting in nowhere.

-That your time & mental energy are finite; not constantly refilled like your insta feed. Sorry sis, it is what it is – #emotionalbiochemistry

-And that your NEED for a “clean slate” can be detrimental. Because it’s also an illusion. You never need it, you only think you do.

As your Coach, I help you start the best start for YOU.

“Starting” can mean taking one small anchor action beginning right now. It could be as simple as replacing one part of your dinner with veggies or starting your day with a glass of water. We figure that out together.

Remember this: the universe doesn’t care about your clean slate. Only you do because well, you are human.

Forgive yourself. Your slate is as clean RIGHT NOW as it will ever be.
