If your fitness, nutrition, mental well-being, and self-care has taken a backseat to other priorities, welcome to being a mom and a human! Most of us aren't where we want to be.
When we finally do decide we're ready for change, it's easy to wait until spring to focus on getting "summer body" ready, or to start a "new year new you" in January, but there really is no better time to start than now. NOW is the time to create habits before we go into the holiday season just to set ourselves back farther.
Every day is a new opportunity to focus on self-care, eat better, get adequate sleep, exercise often, and handle any longstanding conditions that cause pain, embarrassment or anxiety. Simply starting the journey toward being fit and healthy will boost your energy, immunity and brain function. What would that do for you?
A fitness breakthrough could literally change your life, because every other area of life is connected. Imagine what would change for you if you had the energy to meal prep rather than eating out - you might have less financial stress. Or imagine the activities you might be able to do with your kids that your fitness level wouldn't previously allow. Imagine just being able to function, and be present, consistently. I believe the future ahead of you is exciting, and full, and meaningful. You’ll need your mind and body to be ready for it.
To get started, I always recommend to not-overcomplicate it. There can be a lot of confusing information out there. Go back to basics.
What’s one step you could take toward better health and fitness? Could you . . .
• Cut out the sugar from your diet starting today?
• Start drinking water instead of coffee and bottled drinks?
• Book a checkup for that annoying health condition?
• Plan a healthy dinner, then take a 45-minute walk?
