What do Smarties and The X files have in common?
One of the things we strive for is creating positive daily habits, and a positive daily mindset. Choices play a huge factor in creating success.
So what does that have in common with eating junk and sitting in front of the idiot box?
Well, I don't do either very often...I am not able to keep up with the Kardashians and I have no use for reality tv...I have no clue who the newest bachelor is, nor do I care. Do I feel like I have been deprived of solid evening entertainment? Nope. I removed that from my life because I found other things to occupy my time. The only time you'll see me in front of the tv is probably watching sports or a movie with the family.
So Jodian, get to the point.
I needed to dial it BACK. I needed to allow myself to sit and enjoy the down time of my life. Maybe even in front of the tv....and that it would be okay.
I needed to give myself permission first. Giving myself the permission has been the difficult part. So here goes...
In our new program, Strut Your Stuff 2016, we take our clients through sixteen weeks. Everything from nutrition to the final reveal Celebration with all the bells and whistles!
One of the first things we require is a Pledge to ourselves. It is personal. It is authentic and most of all it's positive. Then we have to make it real by posting to our clients for all to see..that's when it becomes real.
My pledge is for me.
My pledge is to live a lifestyle that is 90 % dialed in, rather than 100%. This will further be known as the 90/10 rule.
Sounds silly when we preach being disciplined and how that gets us results. Its all about the choices we make.
But for me and my journey to an IDFA Figure Pro, the journey had become borderline excessive to the point where I would not give myself permission for many detours.
Many things that I removed from my life will not return. It just doesn't serve me anymore....Now I'm still training because working out and being healthy is a non negotiable, but I have no show date chosen. So how do I keep my body in great shape but allow myself the opportunities to have a more relaxed lifestyle if I choose?
You create action steps to get them done. My actions steps towards my 10% are scheduled for Monday nights.
Where do the Smarties fit in?
For me, its the permission.
Health comes in many ways and creating successful action steps brings about change. For me it will be Mondays nights watching Scully and Mulder kick some alien ass.
I may eat some Smarties while I watch.
I may not.
But I have given myself permission to do so, if I choose.
