A new client signed up with us a few months ago because they noticed their energy levels weren't what they used to be.
They KNEW they needed to do something. And rather than just letting “life happen” they decided to take charge and do something about it.
But (they would totally agree with me on this), when they first started, they weren't that into it, even when I pulled out all my favorite “fun” training tricks!
Getting their workout done was just another thing to check off their to-do list.
BUT … that all changed when one day we started talking about all the traveling they used to do and how they wanted to be able to take trips with their grandkids and participate in all of the different activities.
I could see how excited they were getting, so we started focusing their workouts and habits on building up their strength & endurance so they could join in on all the fun while traveling … and they were on FIRE!
This is the power of having a goal that gets you excited – of something that adds value and fun to your life, and that has meaning!
What is ONE THING that’s a challenge for you – but that you’d LOVE to be able to do?
Let your mind go and come up with something fun.
It could be anything: playing down on the floor with your kids in their playroom (and being able to get up on your own), travel comfortably on a plane, wear a pair of high heels again, or lower your dosage/get off of medications you're currently taking.
This is one of my favorite ways to turn new healthy habits into a real LIFESTYLE change… because these are the goals that directly impact your quality of life.
The trick is to choose things that get you FIRED UP and EXCITED …
Because this can spur you on to be more active … upgrade your food intake for more energy and vitality … and open yourself up to POSSIBILITY.
There’s an old saying, “When was the last time you did something for the first time?”
Today, just think about that.
You don’t have to commit to anything (yet, haha).
Let your mind explore those “what ifs” that have been in the back of your head over the past couple of years.
Because if not now … then WHEN?
I’d love to hear about YOUR goals … share with us 1 or 2 of them in the comments below!
