Well there’s a scary word😱 the thought of giving yourself to something or someone 100 is enough to send anyone running for the hills! ⛰🏃🏼♀️
Hmmmm let’s take a look at its meaning.. Commitment- the state or quality of being dedicated to something, or someone, a cause and engagement…an obligation that can restrict freedom of actions!!! 🤦🏻♀️
Well holy fuck that’s enough to scare me..but is it?🤷♀️ in life we tend to want not need so many things…like husbands/wives..fancy houses/cars…to be slim/skinny ..fit/toned..rich/successful… I think you get the drift of it..but how many are willing to make the sacrifice or the commitment to what’s actually involved with what they truly want..🤔 today I will touch base on the Commitment to a healthier you… a fitter life…
Did you know only 20 % of Americans meet the federal criteria for getting enough physical and muscle strengthening activity on a weekly basis, according to statistics! 20 % that’s insanity!!!!
So often I get texts and emails…phone calls and messages about wanting to be in better shape..eat cleaner and just be all around healthy and happy… all are for different reasons as everyone has there own journey and what they want from it…so I’m always happy to set up a meet and greet and the first question I always ask is What does Commitment mean? And How bad do you want it? And everyone is always so gunho and says more than you know and I’m so ready 😊 so I continue to ask a series of questions some easier to answer than others…but usually I always getting the same responses….so we set up a plan and all I ask for is two things…stay committed 80 percent to start…and give yourself 20 % of freedom…and don’t get discouraged..as Rome wasn’t built in a day….
Somehow along the way life kinda just fucks us all up and gets in the way….whether it’s kids…work…husbands ..wives…new boy/girl friends or the constant girls night out… or the boys are in town….how bout the dog threw up…my sneakers are wet…..it’s raining or simply I just don’t feel like it….ya I’ve heard it all…and the truth is none of this actually effects me….as I will wake up everyday doing and being what And where I need to be…but what it does do is puts a hole in the commitment you made to YOU! Yup not to me but to you…when you decided to change your life in that moment you entered into a contract with not only yourself but me as well and it’s one that you have full control over…hmmm think about that for a min🤔 a commitment …an obligation….lose of freedom for a brief period of time😮😮😮 hmmmmm… life gets in the way right…now without passing judgment on yourself think about what you did this past weekend….did you go out? Did you stay in….did you have an extra Margarita and was it worth it…how bout the what did you eat ….did you have Fries instead of a side salad with that burger….now hold on a second before you get your panties ruffled🤣….I make the same commitments and I break them too…(We are only human you know) only to beat myself up about it and place blame on everything else …all the distractions of life….instead of thinking about the choices I could of made and didn’t…I lacked commitment in that moment as well…SMH…but today I’m here to help you get redirected and recommit to you..and I’m gonna give you some tips on what to do to stay focused and committed… even if it’s just in the moment
Lets start off by Finding Your Fit…ask yourself what do you like to do? What kinda of workouts do I enjoy…Yoga🙏🏻 ? Kickboxing🥊? Lifting 🏋🏻♀️ maybe you’re a runner🏃🏼♀️..perhaps cycling is your thing🚵🏻🚴🏻♀️! What ever your fit is find it and than create a plan…mix the exercises up something different everyday…than make a commitment to a specific time and stay consistent..sounds easy enough right….well it aint…but you have to make the choice…the commitment if you want to reap the benefits!
Get a piece of paper and write it all down…all the activities you enjoy…whether in a gym or not…shop around for new ideas and new places to work out….also..try things you never thought of ….you never know you might like it but don’t get discouraged if you dont….the first time around usually sucks as all your thinking is WTF was I thinking ….but try it again before you cross it off the list …next try to create a plan…a simple one maybe start out with 3-4 days a week maybe and 30 mins at a time…remember it’s a commitment and you have to crawl before you can walk…get use to the idea of this new commitment…keep an open mind, never feel pressured…as you won’t like everything… but you will love other things …know some days will be harder…but keep it fun.. know that no matter what the activity is remember everything gets boring and than you quit…. so try to keep the love alive and mix it up daily…
Before you know it 3-4 weeks have gone by and now you’ve created a habit…yes a commitment ..whoaaaaa …holy shit you did it!!! 😮😘👏🏻👍…now that we’ve laid a foundation let’s get started with a mini goal…and a reward system ..yes more commitment 🤦🏻♀️ and let’s stick to it ..maybe a 5k…maybe to drop one pants size….how bout a new pair of skinny jeans..the knew bikini…or maybe just to stay consistent ….now embrace the goal so you can enjoy the reward…
Good Luck know you’ve got this and It’s now how you start…It’s how you Finish…that’s what truly matters
