Happy Monday Fit Family-
We recently began another 6 week challenge and at orientation, I talked a lot about how when we are looking to create a new and improved version of ourselves we need to take consistent action.
Did you know that there are three main ways that behavioral change can occur?
1-a significant life event occurs
(birth or death of a loved one, marriage, move, discovery of a massive health condition etc.)
3-the 5 people with whom we spend the most time
You’ll notice that two of those are about environment and actions within our control.
One of them is about outside events/forces occurring in our lives and how we respond to them.
This means that we can always choose to do better.
My mother used to tell me that I would become like the kids I used to “hang out with”. She told me it was impossible for me to spend too much time with the naughty kids without becoming naughty myself.
I’ve noticed that when I spend a lot of time with my friends who like to go to Happy Hours and eat foods that don’t align with my health and fitness goals that I’m eating more of those foods too…
It turns out my mother was right.
At MPower Fitness, we teach our clients that fitness and health are a journey and that we want to fall in love with that journey.
Along the way, we can make it easier for ourselves or harder.
Being in a community of folks who want to get better, who prioritize their health and fitness helps.
So does consistent action.
Daily conditioning: #2 and environment: #3.
You don’t need to wait for #1- for some significant life event to occur- to desire change and then take a new action.
You can start right now:
1-Plan your workouts for the week.
Get them on your calendar.
2- Plan healthy options for your food intake.
3- Schedule quality sleep and relaxation.
4- Surround yourself with your most supportive friends and family members.
We know you can do it and we’re always here to help.
Lets make it a great week!
