We’re all good at making excuses and listening to that voice in your head – you know the one I mean, right?
The voice that stops you trying something new because you’re a little bit unsure, the voice that points out it’s raining so you don’t need to go for a run, the voice that says it’s ok to have takeaway for dinner… again…
I’m no exception. Yesterday evening, scrolling through Facebook I came across a Fusion Pilates class.
Now I’ve been thinking for a while (yes, much longer than a month…) that I want to bring more fitness into my life again. I can’t hide behind the excuse that “I’ve just had a baby” forever, especially now I’m 18 months down the line from that, and I think my body is craving some sort of exercise that isn’t lifting children or plonking them on my hip.
Now the thing is, I’ve thought about it – in fact my mind has kept reminding be about it. And then I’ve thought about it again. I’ve done diddly squat about it…
Today I took one small step which led me to achieve something for me – that thing I’ve been putting off and making excuses about for AGES.
Want to know what that small step was? Changing into my fitness gear. Sounds super easy right? Wrong, I still left it totally to the last minute and almost wimped out.
But once I had the clothes on it was like a row of dominoes toppling over – an inevitable chain of events that meant from getting the clothes on, I would then get my bag together, leave the house, walk to the class and DO THE CLASS.
It happened. I did it. It felt amazing – I achieved.
But it was that first, small step that made the difference.
I’m here to remind you that you can, most definitely, 100% take your own small step today.
What do you want to achieve?
What have you been putting off?
Go on, think about it and decide right now.
Then, quite simply, choose one single thing that you can do which will set you on the path to achieving that. Maybe it’s throwing the takeaway menus away? Or making one single phone call? It doesn’t have to be perfect, it simply needs to be action.
It won’t take a moment and doing that one thing really could change the whole direction of your today. . . your week. . . your 2019.
Give it a go and feel amazing.
