A Little Friday Motivation

Old Ways are Old

This time of year is probably the most difficult time to start anything! Yet it is also the most popular season to do just that. You are so busy having just finished the holidays, and there are still temptations around sports (hint: Superbowl), work and personal life.

Any change is hard regardless of the time you start it, right? There are excuses at every turn of your day.
That is EXACTLY why now is the best time to start anything new, especially eating healthy.  I was recently reminded by a colleague that “learning to roll with whatever gets thrown your way and making the best choices in any situation is what will help you turn these challenges into a lifestyle change!”  This was precisely the kick in the butt I needed too.  Let’s face it, life is pretty darn good at throwing loop holes into the most perfectly laid out plans. There simply is not a perfect time to start any change, regardless of what it is, because that perfect time will never come.  That is not real life.  Real life changes and you need those “bumps in the road” to gain confidence that you can do this despite what comes your way.

If you tried a “diet” or to eat healthier in January, I have a feeling that it didn’t go perfectly. That is OK! It is being consistent with your efforts and knowing how to get back on track when you get derailed. Those are the skills you want to learn during this time, so when it happens again, you know what to do.

Focus on what went well. The days you nailed it! Let those serves as motivation to keep going!

One Question..how would you answer it?

Was this you last weekend except not in the dishwasher but the Halloween candy stash?

Never fear, I hope you indulged a little, but even if you dove completely in, there is still today and everyday to get back to eating clean and healthy.  That is the beauty of eating clean, your body remembers it and loves to feel it’s best.  So jump back on the eating clean plan for your health!  Don’t succumb to the sweatpants advice, but take the first step back into a healthy routine and each step after will be easier.

Welcome to Fall folks!  In the next few weeks I will be searching and sharing recipes to make you Holiday’s full of flavor and REAL ingredients.  I hope you will add a few to your table spread this season.

So by now you are wondering if that was THE question..NOPE!  This video clip from Upworthy.com is very telling and I wanted to share it’s message with you.  How would you answer the question?

I agree that the kids take the prize this time around.  Be mindful of how you see yourself and treat yourself today.  Be kind to you!  This life it hard enough without you being hard on you.
