Light Your Own Fire

I'm not really sure what happened to winter and TBH I feel like I'm still sitting around here waiting for that first snow, but in the meantime.... Spring is looming people! 

The swimwear is launching, the tanks are out... heck I even rolled my windows down yesterday and enjoyed a nice breeze.  It's time to stop living in denial and get serious here.  I DO NOT want you looking back and wishing you had done something to improve your self image earlier.  I'm here to be your kick in the butt.  Your impetus.  That annoying voice that you know is right when I say you are not living up to your full potential.  You deserve to have it all and be it all and by George, that starts with putting our health first! 

While motivation is not always easy, we are in luck that at this time of year, we start to feel that itch that something is changing. We're ready for Spring cleaning.  Let's utilize that feeling to truly kickstart changes and go all in! 

Some things I might do that really get me focused on a goal:

1. Purchase clothes I WANT to wear, even if I don't feel ready yet.  Then I picture that clothing and how bomb I'm going to feel in it when I make the right decisions and move myself in a positive direction. 

2. Surround myself with health minded friends - that appreciate a good nutrient dense recipe, high five me after a good workout, and notice the glow up in a good way!  If someone is not supporting your journey, find someone else who will!

3. Follow people with HEALTHY bodies that are similar to your own body type.  I have gone down a rabbit hole too many times comparing myself to taller, more model like bodies which is not fair to myself or God who gave me this body for a reason.  We have to be real.  We have to learn to love what we have and who we are.  But we can also strive to make progress while we are doing this.  You have to actively ask if this is motivating or deprecating.  Find the inspiration you can have confidence in.

4. Take progress photos.  Nothing is more honest than looking at your own dang self, so step up to the mirror and snap a selfie.  You don't have to show anyone but yourself, but create a separate little album in your phone for progress photos and do it every couple of weeks.  Pat yourself on the back when you're seeing a difference and when you aren't, drop the excuses and start examining the plan.  Are you sticking to it?  Can we tweak anything?  Reach out to me and I am happy to help in this process!

The next months are so key in hitting our summer goals so I'm gonna ask again... are you ready?? Light your own fire and jump in with us!  I'm excited to do this together!
