A RANT, WITH LOVE...
I’m going to be brutally honest with you today, and I want you to know that this comes from a place of love. So, let’s dive in…
You know how it’s a common fact that everyone flocks to fitness in January only to abandon it by February?
Well, there’s more to it than that.
Let me tell you the thought process I have seen as a professional in the fitness industry for the past 6 years:
It’s summertime. Kids are out of school or you’re away on holiday. Things are SO CRAZY that it’s too hard to commit to a fitness routine.
It’s autumn. Kids go back to school, there’s so much to organize. Or you just feel like going into hibernation.
It’s Christmas– the CRAZIEST time of year (in addition to summer and autumn). There’s no way anyone can possibly commit during Christmas! It’s just too busy and the food is too tempting. Plus, my family and friends really need my attention. And then, of course, I’ll need a few weeks after Christmas to get my ducks in a row.
Ever been there, right?
Chances are the answer is “YES” if you’ve ever jumped on and off the fitness wagon.
And I feel REALLY compelled to call it out because this is such flawed thinking. It’s a story we tell ourselves that we end up believing. It makes it easier to put off taking care of our bodies and buy into our own excuses.
But what if your story changed?
What if your story became something more along the lines of “My body and my health are of the utmost importance to me, so I will create time for them 365 days a year.“
Because the truth is, we ALWAYS find time for the things that are truly important.
When we say we “don’t have time, ”we are simply saying “it’s just not a priority.”
And that’s my rant.
According to the faulty logic I described above, there are really only about 3 months a year that aren’t “crazy” and where it’s “convenient” to focus on taking care of you Unless, of course, other circumstances pop up, as they always do.
Here’s the thing…
Your body and your health aren’t a sometimes project.
We put off the things we know we need to do until something happens – an injury, disease, or just finding ourselves deeply unhappy with the body we’ve created.
Instead of preventative care and maintenance for our health, we wait for things to get so bad we’re forced to finally do something.
That’s the state of many people who have believed the story about “too busy” and “seasons” and “the perfect time.”
Please KNOW that this message, though a bit harsh of a reality check, is coming to you with love. I truly want to look you in the eyes, give you a warm hug, and let you know that I believe in you.
So, if you’re ready to write a new story for yourself, let me take you by the hand and show you the way…
Let’s have a real conversation about how you can take action and move forward for the final time so you never have to start over again. All you have to do is drop me a line and I’ll be in touch to book a time with you ASAP.
I’ve got you.
P.S. If you know someone who needs to hear this message, please forward this to them with love :)
