Happy post Mother’s Day!
The best part of my life is being a Mom! Without a doubt… owner, operator, coach, trainer, motivator, doctor… there isn’t a title I could live without except, MOM. That is the most important title I have and the one I love more than any other.
Yesterday, Mother’s Day 2017. Oh the build up… the hype, the sales, the promises, the cards, the flowers, the breakfast, lunch, dinners and more! An amazing day… WHAT, A DAY??
A DAY?? THAT’S ALL WE GET? ONE FREAKING DAY?
Presidents get a day and there’s only been 45 of them.
July 4th gets a day.
Teachers get a week and they only play teacher for 8 hours a day with weekends, holidays and summers off.
Mother’s Day should be a month long celebration, with a massive one week build up and a day that every mom get’s everything they want for free.
Think… Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Massive build up for one day.
Don’t Mother’s deserve the same?
OK… rant over. I actually have some stuff to talk about here…
Mother’s Day can be a tough one for a lot of women. A lot of us spend some of the day reflecting on the moms that we’ve lost. (Especially if they were gone too soon).
I lost my Mom on my 20th birthday. Yes, actually on my 20th birthday.
There are so many things that happen daily, that I wish my Mom was here for. She never got to see me be a mom… I think she’d like what she would see though. There is a whole lot of her in my ‘mothering’.
My Mom passed early because of poor health. It has been a driver for me for the last 20+ years.
Your family wants to celebrate a lot of Mother’s Days with your.
Carrying 20 extra pounds increases your health risks – that is just science. Risky behaviors do the same.
Your family wants you around for a long time, trust me.
You want to be here for them.
Make that a part of your WHY to be healthy and stay healthy.
It’s not a punishment to be disciplined with your eating and exercise. It’s just what you do to maintain good health and longevity.
Making sure you have lots of Mother’s Day celebrations ahead is pretty easy…
Do you even have a routine or just make things up as you go along? Winging it…that’s where things go sideways. You can’t have a goal without a plan.
Life is crazy right?!
Things change daily, kids get sick from school, family issues happen, work is chaos, car breaks down, you get injured…etc etc etc…so how do you plan around that?
You have systems in place that allow flexibility. You can have routines in place which give you a path to follow. Almost always the best paths are the ones that other’s have walked before you showing the easier, more successful route. Those paths and systems make for at least 80% of the results you are seeking in everything you do in life.
Otherwise you’ll do what most people do; achieve just a small percentage of what they say they want.
What do I mean by routines and systems?
- scheduling priorites
- days you are working out on
- food prep day
- shopping days
- family activities
- the time you wake up (Pro tip: get up 30 minutes earlier)
- when bed time is roughly (Pro tip: go to bed 30 minutes earlier)
- social activities
“But, Carrie, I don’t want to live my life out of a daily planner”. If that’s your first thought then you are basically saying that you don’t really want to achieve the goals you claim you do. You are making it up each and every morning you will be making your choices and decisions out reaction, out of immediacy and hurry which leads to living in stress rather than within priorities, purpose, intent and time.
Everything that is successful around us was built on a system. Everyone who is successful has systems in their life making things easier, more efficient, faster and flexible.
Need some motivation?
You might think that you don’t have the motivation to take on a healthy lifestyle change… but you do.
Give yourself more credit than that. Use whatever you need to get you started. Look at your kids or your family, that is motivation to do better!!!
You are a role model to someone.
Plan and prepare don’t just try to wing it, it does’t work like that.
Make small changes everyday.
