An Easy Way To Start

Hello! I hope you had a great Memorial Day. I have a quick question for you:

What are you going to do for the rest of the week?

What do I mean?

Well, we all have some sort of goal for ourselves, right? In terms of fitness that may mean losing some weight, getting over some sort of injury, getting a little stronger or something else entirely.

Whatever our ultimate goal is, sometimes it can seem a bit overwhelming. Let’s get real here. Sometimes it can seem EXTREMELY overwhelming.

Well, you know how to eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.

What I mean is that if you seem overwhelmed, I just want you to focus on the rest of this week. Do just one thing that will help you. That’s it.

Here are some quick suggestions:

  1. Go on a walk.
  2. Add 5 pounds to your main lift at your next workout.
  3. Do 10 minutes of mobility work.
  4. Eat an extra serving of vegetables with your dinner.

Take one of these suggestions or figure another one out for yourself (I fully believe that everyone really knows what they should do) and just do that ONE thing for the rest of this week.

Try not to think about what you want 6 months or a year from now. Try not to think about the things that are overwhelming to you. Just think about one thing and do that one thing.

Now here’s the real trick. Next week, do it again.

If you need any help figuring out what you’re one thing should be, drop me an email and we’ll get it going for you.

Have a great week!
