I can’t believe it’s a snow day here in PA. I was really looking forward to getting back into a routine this week. But you know what? Even if this storm didn’t hit my little town of Doylestown, I probably would have been off kilter from the holidays still anyway. So I’m throwing my hands up and surrendering.
But before I do that, let’s make a game plan, while the kids are distracted.
Write these down, whether on a pad of paper, in your phone or on your laptop.
First, what do you want to get from your fitness program in 2018?
For me it’s about getting back to the basics, fusing together different movement practices I love and having more FUN!
Now you…(go ahead, write)
Second, when are you going to workout?
Don’t just think about time of day, think more about time of opportunity. Listen, if we could go back in time when no one else needed our attention and we could workout when it was ideal, we would do it. But that’s not the case. Life is demanding but don’t let it throw you off course. Opportunities like, when you are waiting for the school bus to arrive, or while dinner is in the oven, and even between loads of laundry have great potential. Moments like these happen everyday, you just need to see them as unique times to take care of YOU.
Lastly, where are you going to workout?
Think out of the box. If you have a gym membership, GREAT, get there when you can. But when you can’t be resourceful. Any space will do. And I mean ANY! Hallways are awesome for walking lunges and vinyasa flows, you can do step ups & tricep dips on your stairs and kitchen counters make for a great “barre”. Hell! I have my spin bike in my garage. The general rule is if you can lay down a yoga mat in a space, you are good to go.
Ok, did you write all of the things that came to your mind. If not, do it now before you get pulled away to do something else.
I am here to motivate & inspire you but the desire needs to come from you.
A quote I heard this week:
You Must Believe To Achieve.
Believe in your dreams to create change and feel GREAT in your body. You desire it.
I’d love to hear about your 2018 fitness goals so definitely leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now that we’ve had a moment to reconnect after the holiday madness and start of the New Year, I am going to shut down my laptop, ask Ryan to start a fire and I am going to snuggle up with my girls on the couch. Surrendering can be sweet, if you let it.
Enjoy your day, wherever you are and I’ll see you again soon.
