Here we are, its finally 2021. It doesn’t feel like it yet. People around me are me are still suffering. Families are still grieving and people are still assholes.
Me, I am simply working hard in an attempt to remove myself from the effects of the past year. Who said 2021 will be better?
The reality is, the beatings will continue until you make your own changes. Prioritize your goals and write them down. Keep them in your face all day long. Stick them to your bathroom mirror, your dashboard, the wallpaper in your cell phone.
Statistically, the majority of us create goals and then by March, the motivation is gone. Perhaps those goals were not obtainable to start with.
Maybe instead if your goals of losing weight, it should have been lose 10 pounds because that is visual and therefore obtainable.
Now, revise those goals and create something obtainable. Hold your head high because you have the courage to even move forward after the assault that 2020 gave you.
Keep up the good fight, kick ass and keep moving forward.
As I begin to push 2020 out of the way, I am feeling some excitement. 🎉
Much like everyone else around me, I am so done with 2020 and can’t wait to ring in the New Year with so many things I want to experience. Some are new and some are renewed.
Every year, I begin by creating lists…. Lots of damn lists… 😔
There are “to do” lists, workout program lists, meal plan lists, goal lists, book lists, budget lists. This is simply too much. Sometimes baby steps are needed. Quite often, small changes are more effective and lead to better habits without even thinking.
For example, one small change I made last year was substituting a scoop of protein powder instead of cream or sugar in my coffee. Guess what? It resulted in less of an afternoon crash and not feeling “hangry”. Why? because protein fills your fuel tank and makes you feel full. Sugar absorbs quickly and makes you want more. The wonderful result of a small change was more muscle.
Reflecting on this past year no matter how much it hurts, has to be done.
Growth needs to happen. If you never planted a seed last year, your going to fall on your face this year. 🌴 Bet me!
And there it is….. This was my project for lesson 2 of Layering techniques 1 and my inspiration came from my readers. Enjoy! 💘
