Time for some spring cleaning!
Did you make a New Years resolution to get healthy? If so, are you sticking with it? I hope so! Great job to you if you are changing yourself!
A lot of times those resolutions get interrupted because you're waiting for perfect conditions, whatever those may be for you. Today is March 1. Spring is near. Although it doesn't feel like it at the moment, it's about time to start swim suit shopping.
We are all guilty of packing on the pounds over the winter. Shorter days, cold and dreary weather, holiday feasts, Super Bowl parties, crock pots, the overwhelming desire to bake.....
Everyone struggles during the winter. I am among the guilty.
Now that we are on spring's doorstep, it's time for some spring cleaning. Time to undo the mess you made over the winter. Time to change your ways. It is no fun shopping for new swimwear when you're feeling pudgy and storing extra pounds. And it's not very exciting to think about spending time around the pool or beach when you are feeling self conscious. And you know you want to get out there and enjoy the outdoor fun in the sun.
Make a commitment to do some form of exercise, every singe day, for the whole month of March. For example, I accepted a challenge to run at least 1 mile every day for the entire month. No excuses. I also committed to do 50 squats and 50 lunges every day this month. Maybe you're thinking to yourself that you can't run, or you have a bad knee and can't do squats. Well that's no problem, because that's MY commitment:). Do what you can. Maybe you're a swimmer. Maybe you like Zumba. Maybe you prefer walking or taking a yoga class. Maybe you're challenge is to lose a certain amount of weight this month, and/or to give up your favorite bad food.
You have to pick things that work for you so that you don't fail. You can't commit to something you hate or aren't capable of doing for whatever reason, and expect to follow through with it. Give yourself the chance to succeed.
If you would like help and can't afford a trainer, I have training plans available that can help you and don't break the bank. I can design a program for you, and communicate via text or email with you for accountability and direction. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
