When you boil it all down, getting fit is really very simple.
Here’s the secret:
Create a habit that leads you in the direction of improving your health and fitness level. Once you master it, add another one.
Creating—and maintaining—your unique health and fitness program is a matter of mastering one good habit after another and stringing them together. Like popcorn.
This is also a great plan for your life.
So, why isn’t it working?
- Feeling so overwhelmed, you don’t know where to begin
- You’ve tried everything and nothing works
- Friends and family members are not supportive, and you cave
- There’s no time
- You’re too busy
- Your good intentions get waylaid by real life happening, over and over and over….
- The weather is crummy
- You hate to exercise
- You hate to cook
- And, a combination of any or all of these
In actuality, the reason you are not hitting your goals is this: YOU ARE NOT HONORING YOUR INNER AGREEMENTS.
You are not honoring your word with yourself.
Consider how you feel when you break your word with another human being. (If this has never happened, please share your secret!)
It’s not a good practice to break our word with others. It’s not a good practice to break our own inner agreements.
We all do. Perhaps you’ve never really thought much about it.
Pay attention to the times that you give someone (even YOU) your word, and then don’t follow through.
An Exercise (relax, it’s not a physical exercise):
Write down your inner agreements and take them seriously. (Like: I am hitting the gym 3 times this week for at least 30 minutes; or, I am going to bed 30 minutes earlier most nights because I need more sleep.) When there’s a breakdown, acknowledge it, clean it up, forgive yourself, and move on.
This is not an exercise to make you feel bad. We’re doing this to get into the habit of integrity.
Honor your inner agreements as if you made them with your best friend, and see what happens.
I’m happy to help you find clarity and create a plan to live your amazing life now. If you’re struggling with your weight, health, or keeping your inner agreements, it’s time to play the game of life as though it’s the only game that matters. Schedule your complimentary consult today.
