Are you taking steps toward your goals and checking things off your goal/to-do list? If you are YAY! If not, take a look at what’s keeping you from doing that. Chances are it’s your habits.
Habits can be good and bad. Drinking 128 oz of water a day and exercising in the morning are all good habits that do take some work to become a habit. Bad habits take work to break, too. Things like stress eating or smoking could be holding you back from your fat loss or improved health goals. Take a look at the daily routines and habits and determine which ones are helping you and which ones are harming you.
I was talking with someone recently about waning motivation and not feeling like they’re geared up. Motivation will come and go, which is why it’s so important to flex your discipline muscle. Discipline makes habits, habits get things done.
When we first started my own 90 Day Challenge (and invited my email subscribers to join) I had a long list in each of my four categories. On one hand it was exciting to think I could do all of that in 90 days, on the other it was intimidating and made me just want to take a nap. I’ve methodically been checking things off and doing them even if I don’t feel like it. I know that the feeling of not doing it, continuing to procrastinate, and letting myself down would be worse.
Each time I do something (more so when I really don’t want to) I feel great! It’s kind of like the high after a great workout. The more you work your discipline muscle the stronger it gets and the easier it is to continue to get stuff done.
FLEX THOSE MUSCLES!!
