Sharing some strategies and mindset shits for when you know ‘what to do’ but you’re not doing it. But, first, a couple of quick updates!
When you know ‘what to do’ but you’re not doing it
Sometimes you know *exactly* what to do… you’re just not doing it.
Let’s be real. Likely, you know what you need to do to get to your goals.
If you want a degree, you’ve got to enroll in school, go to class, study, and do homework.
If you want to build a business or career, you’ve got to show up, focus, and work hard.
If you want a meaningful relationship, you’ve got to be patient, listen, and give of yourself when you can.
And the same thing goes for health and weight loss. You know exactly what you need to do. But it’s really a matter of asking yourself, are you actually doing it? And doing it consistently for the long-term?
When you look at it, it seems like maybe you’ve fallen off track, don’t worry. That’s totally normal and it happens to everyone.
Don’t waste time beating yourself up about it. Instead, think about these three things below.
What to do to get back on track
1. Leave the perfectionist mentality behind. It’s not all or nothing. That is so damaging to your progress! Setbacks are part of the journey so it’s crazy to think you’ll never ever slip up! What matters most is how you respond and move forward from those setbacks.
2. Remember how good it felt to be ‘on track’ and be intentional to take good care of yourself. Making good food choices, exercising, getting compliments from friends and family, hitting PRs in the gym, buying a smaller size… you were THERE! You were doing the things and seeing progress.
Remember how it felt and think of getting back to that feeling as your well-deserved and 100% necessary self-care!
3. Act in alignment of who you want to be. What would the person you want to be do in your situation? Choose a throw-together meal at home versus getting takeout? Squeeze in a workout at lunch? Do things in alignment with WHO you want to be. Eat in alignment, exercise, rest, etc.
Ask yourself: Are your actions helping you become the person you want to be and will those actions help you reach your goals? If not, change something!
Finally, I bet if you really take a step back, you’ll see that you know what to do. You’ve done it before. You’ve just got to tap back into that feeling again and simply do it.
