Are you losing steam?


Are you losing steam?

We are finishing up our 2nd week of the nutrition challenge. Hopefully your creativity has been keeping you jazzed about making optimal nutrition choices. I say optimal because the sliding scale of really good food to really bad food is quite subjective and eating a “bad” food doesn’t make you a bad person or knock you off the tracks to your goal of health and fitness. Sometimes you just have the iced coffee, light and sweet, and you move on with your life.

They (whoever they are) say that it takes two weeks to form a habit. Habits formed can be new ones or the byproduct of the dissolution of previous not as acceptable habits – quitting smoking, not moving, screen tunnel vision, etc. We have almost made it to a newly formed habit! If you are going strong – CONGRATULATIONS! If you are losing steam, that is normal, acceptable and changeable as long as you can refresh the reasons why you chose to do this in the first place.

Goals would be much easier to hit if there was a straight path. Life would be much more manageable if there weren’t any bumps in the road. But life is funny that way and so are we.

We stumble but get back up. We trip but don’t fall flat. We correct, regroup, reframe, all of the “re-” words we can. Especially the REMEMBER. Remember you chose this path of healthier nutrition because you wanted to feel better. You wanted to become more comfortable in your own skin. You wanted to lower your blood pressure. You wanted to be active and healthy 20 years from now.

Your choices are not what you WANTED, but what you WANT. Trust yourself. Be good to yourself – eat the healthy foods that build muscle, improve health markers, rid you of brain fog & fatigue and make you into the well oiled machine you can be.

Choose health, which in turn means that you CHOOSE YOU.
