At the beginning of each year, most of us set out to create new healthy habits, but what I found is I can’t maintain my newfound habits for long. I get frustrated because I miss a day and by the time I get motivated again it’s become a month of doing nothing.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I can’t take another year of this.
So instead of focusing on JUST getting my body in better shape this year like most people I know, I plan to focus on getting my overall WELL-BEING in shape.
When I looked up the definition of well-being I thought, “Oh, I can do that”. The definition of well-being is described as the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. Which led me to wanting to create my FIT Challenge.
What is the FIT Challenge?
I created the FIT Challenge because I wanted to focus on the outside AND the inside. Often, being fit is defined as just physical and I am a huge proponent of being mentally and emotionally fit as well.
My goal with this FIT Challenge is to help you discover health and fitness (on your terms), balance, and self-love in your current relationships, environments, career, and most importantly within yourself. I want you to focus on those things that are unique to you, so you can figure out where you are and where you want or need be.
Where Do I Start?
Below is a list of 2019 Goals I created for myself. I want you to pick ONE and focus on that for the next 31 days or make one up for yourself.
Each week I will check in and give you an update on my progress. I want you to check in with me at any time. I am here to listen and encourage as you embark on this new FIT journey. It’s not going to be easy and it may sound super cheesy to some of you, but I know if you push towards making a goal, your life can and will change.
10 Things To Keep In Mind
Getting started is hard, but keeping it going is harder. It’s called self-discipline. If you don’t go hard for yourself, then who will?
To stay motivated, remember the following
Listen to yourself. (Mind + Body)
Take small steps and be patient.
Create a positive environment where you can succeed.
Get support from those around you.
Give yourself grace and start again if you need.
Savor successes and learn from your failures.
Remember you are only competing against yesterday.
Ask yourself what is your motivation and focus on that when it gets tough.
Keep track of your progress either in a journal or on your phone.
Quit for a day, but don’t stop altogether.
