Tell me if this sounds familiar. You seem to have your best health and fitness interests in mind. You eat fairly healthy, stay pretty active and overall have a good energy and zest for life.
Then overtime, what may seem sudden but actually a very slow creeping time frame as you reflect back, you realize you haven’t worked out in weeks, ok months. You’re willing to admit to yourself that eating healthy is now not eating the entire bag of chips in one setting. Or perhaps leaving a few chocolates so that your child doesn’t question where they all went.
You brush it off and tell yourself “Hey, I’m still making my breakfast in the morning, I’m still getting my protein shake in when I need it, and I have a great start to my day.” Then perhaps you realize the second half of your day is filled with meetings, picking up the kids, doing homework, kids after school activities or perhaps even going back to work. The day is shot, it’s been 7 hours since you’ve eaten last, you’re getting HANGRY and its 30 minutes before your kids have to go to bed. What the heck are you supposed to cook in that amount of time that’s healthy?
Ok well I’ll just grab something quick on the way home. Maybe Subway so it’s at least somewhat healthy. Perhaps you’re making sure your kids are feed but then skimp on your meal to make sure everything around the house is ready for the next day. Kids are bathed and off to bed and by the time you get a moment to sit its 8:30-9:00 at night. You’re not really hungry but you know you need to eat. Agh, well it’s too late to eat I’m just going to go to bed. Then the week repeats itself and pretty soon you’re months into this cycle that has now become the “norm.”
I get it. I do. That’s been me more times than I’d like to admit. One of my confessions of a fitness coach.
The roughest time for me was when my mom passed away. During that time, I seemed to have lost all knowledge of what had become natural habit of exercising and eating right. Months went by and I was feeling extremely weak and low on energy. I realized I had completely let everything fall by the wayside while my mind and heart were trying to comprehend life without mom. I felt lost.
She was my WHY. My purpose. My mission to get her healthy. My best friend.
About 5 months after she passed I started to “wake up” out of this fog I was in. I slowly started moving again, prepping some meals again and bringing myself back to a functioning human being.
And this is how Recommit to YOU in 42 was born. Over the last 3 years Recommit to YOU in 42 has developed into something more than I ever imagined. Bringing awareness to women who are needing to RECOMMIT to themselves without your average gym setting beat down workout. Without your average lose 30 pounds short term challenge. Without your average boot camp or CrossFit setting.
Recommit to YOU helps build or rebuild that foundational strength, develop better behavior practices in fitness, nutrition and mindset, and improves self-confidence, self-esteem and your relationship with food. And more importantly, helps you Recommit to YOU for lasting success for everything else to follow (weight loss, decrease in body fat, pant size, etc).
Join me as we kick off another Recommit to YOU January 15th!
