Finding Balance Fitness Challenge
We all know its easy to let life get in the way and we then lose track and site of our own goals.. Life goals, family goals, faith goals, fitness goals, etc.
On another note, I am happy to say it’s still possible to change it all around, no matter how much you feel off in these areas or no matter how far away your goals seem! But the first thing you must do is come to reality and accept the need to change, and take the step to get started on the change!
I personally have needed help in all the areas mentioned above! I am more like 70/30 with my nutrition… I miss a couple workouts here and there, and sometimes I let the things coming up in life get the best of me. I hate admitting it, but I have to because otherwise, I will not change. So I am taking the initiative to work on myself more than ever NOT just with fitness, but all aspects of my life! I am excited to be more disciplined and find a good balance in my life for myself and my boys! My boys are 4 and 5 years old and it’s time to have a good routine for our family, along with me being the best role model I can for my kids and others around me!
30 days to commit to working out a day is not asking for a lot.. Its 30 minutes that is easily spent instead of watching mindless TV shows, reading books that do not impact your life in any way, or napping… of course we need the right amount of sleep, but many people in this society take naps just because the opportunity is there. Time to take a new opportunity to live a healthy lifestyle and do things that help us live longer!
I gotta just shout this man out right here… Brent has been a HUGE blessing to my life! God definitely put him in my life at the right time. We help each other be better in these areas of our lives.. we motivate and support each other through our faith and fitness journey! I highly recommend if you are in a relationship, work on building each other up because its the best feeling ever when you can compliment and help each other! If you are not in a relationship, find an accountability partner (friend or family member) who you can be on this journey with!
Nutrition is key! Guys, I swear nutrition is one of the hardest parts of this journey. Its easy to stay on, and its easy to fall off when your surrounded by temptations, others who aren’t living the “healthy lifestyle”, and when your “too busy” to eat healthy! This is my “easy healthy” right here! Just to show you, eating healthy does NOT have to be difficult. This is a choice you gotta make and commit to and be sure you eat for the nutrition, not because its a craving. But be aware… just like when you eat bad food and crave more of it, when you eat healthy, you will crave that too!! Your taste buds change according to what you feed your body!
Putting your faith as a priority! Many of us think, we can do this ourselves. NO!!! We are busy, we make mistakes, we stress, and we need to lean on God to pull us through!!! We stress ourselves out more when we try to be too independent! Lets focus on our blessings God gave us, start using the opportunities sitting in front of us to help us become healthier and better role models for our kids and families!
