It's so easy to feel defeated. I started this January group so excited about my goals and then...my kids caught a cold. The nights have been rough. I'm tired. It's easy to say, " I'll start again tomorrow." Or the next day, week or month! It's easy to eat convenience food instead of cooking healthy meals, but that's not who I want to be! I get to choose to be the person that makes wise decision each and every day. I don't suddenly become her, I have to do the work! The truth is, I'm not afraid of hard work. It's giving into the negative thoughts and defeated mindset that brings me down. Life is going to happen! That doesn't change the goal.
So I'm learning to be firm about my goals and flexible about my methods. If I need to rest, I skip a workout, but I stick to my nutrition plan. If I can work out, I do! If I give into defeat and have a bad day, I pick back up as soon as I realize where I've let myself go. I'm designing my life starting from the inside out and I do not want to be a person that gives up because things get hard. I want to be the person that crushes her goals in spite of struggles! No inspiring story of success ends with, " It was easy." So when things get hard, be encouraged! You're in the thick of it. You are writing your success story. When those hurdles appear how are you going to jump over them? How are you going to improvise your plan to get to your goal? It's not easy, but it IS worth it!
So instead of listening to your own negative inner dialogue, ask yourself two questions. Who do you want to be? How are you going to make it happen? Let every decision you make stem from there.
