Hello everyone. We are one week into 2017. It is our first friday. The gyms are more crowded. The energy is everywhere. It is going well so far. At least in my little corner of the world. I am thrilled to share that my clients are inspiring me to do much more than I would do on my own. Those who know me are fully aware that I like to push myself although I do not believe I would be nearly as committed as I am to my exercise and nutrition if it were not for those I work with. They are amazing. So yes, the buddy system works even if you don't call them your buddy. Look for inspiration - it's everywhere! Be the change you like to see. Put the carts in the stalls at the shopping center. That may be those extra few steps the remote control took away from us. Pick up trash that other people threw on the ground for an extra squat or a deadlift. Do good things for yourself and take a mental note of them. Know that you are AWESOME!
Two things are important if you are going to make exercise a regular part of your life. 1) you must find something you enjoy whether that be the activity itself, variety, the outcome, the trainer, the group, the benefit, whatever it is - take note of it. Acknowledge it. 2) you must accept that today is the only day you have to do it. Tomorrow's another day and you can deal with that then.
Enjoy the moment. WOW yourself or someone else if you can.
