26 Mar

Another week! Happy Monday everyone!

So, how do you feel at the beginning of a new week? Are you excited? Are you dreading the week ahead? Why? I am a planner. I always have been. I remember getting made fun of in school because I always had my planner attached to me and I would write everything down. I’m still that way. I have to know everything and I have to write it down. I can’t help it. I can’t just “wing” it. Oh, that makes me nervous just to think about it! And my OCD kicks in. Ok, it’s gone. Breathe.

I also remember when I was little I would make to-do lists on my Tweety Bird post-its:
#1 Get up at 6:00 am and help dad feed pigs
#2 Eat breakfast
#3 Play house or school with Jake

Suffice to say my dad fed the pigs by himself. Hey, at least I wrote it down! I was learning!
So, if you have troubles staying committed to your daily workout routine, I highly suggest making a to-do list. You could do this once a week, maybe on a Sunday when your family is home. Or, maybe you can go day by day. Whatever motivates you! Just try it. Don’t overwhelm yourself with a long list that you know deep down won’t get crossed off. That’s just discouraging. Start with one thing.
Example:
1: WORKOUT

When you’re done, cross it off. Tell me how good you feel after that! I dare you! Keep doing it every day. Add to it. Spice up your life!

Last week I was crazy and added something to my to-do list. OOH, I was so spontaneous! While doing yoga and staring at the floor I thought, “Boy, Lindsay you should probably vacuum this room.” It looked like I shed a complete head of hair on my floor. I know, that’s gross. I wonder sometimes how I even have all of this dang hair. Anyways! I vacuumed and then rearranged my workout room. Just that tiny change made me want to go downstairs the next day and workout even more. Maybe I’m a little crazy, but change always excites me.

So, what’s my point? My point is: I know how hard it is to stick to something, especially working out daily so I have found ways to make it interesting and exciting for me. To-do lists, calendars, countdowns, re-arranging, new workout clothes, new shoes, etc. This is what has worked for me. I have come a LONG way since last year and I speak from experience. I always say I am here to help and I truly mean that.

Feel free to contact me. I would be honored to help you or answer any of your questions.
