Ever Struggle to Stay Consistent?

Ever struggled to stay consistent with healthy eating, regular exercise, etc?

Yeah, me too. No-one is perfect all of the time.

I’ve been going through a stressful time recently and some days I’ve felt like a complete failure at sticking with the healthy lifestyle that I want to live.

But then I turned around and looked at how far I’d come, and I realized that the choices I’m making today (even the bad ones) are fundamentally different, and much healthier, than the ones I made 5 years ago.

It turns out that I’ve made certain changes that I don’t even think about anymore, and I don’t backslide on these things. These changes require absolutely zero effort to maintain—things like:

  • Drinking green tea and green smoothies instead of coffee

    I’ve gone from this….

  • Exercising at least 3 days per week
  • Eating very few processed carbs
  • Drinking almost no alcohol
  • Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables

Sure, I still overindulge my sweet tooth. I still have a habit of snacking too much when stressed, albeit on healthier foods! I don’t get enough sleep. And I’ve not figured out how to get in the 5+ days of hard exercise that I’d like to get.

But, I realized that, even when I may not quite live up to my current set of goals, my standards have shifted entirely and what I now think of as a “bad day” is really still pretty healthy overall.

It caused me to think about how and why these changes don’t feel like they require any thought any more. It doesn’t require any willpower or discipline to stick with them—it’s just my daily routine.

…to this, and haven’t looked back!

And I realized that is the key. Finding ways to slowly make the changes you want to make and transition from it being something that you have to decide to do… something that requires willpower to do every day… to something that is just the way it is. A habit. Part of your life. Just the way you do things.

That is the focus of our free training on how to overcome limited willpower, and make healthy habits that you can stick with for life.

Because we all struggle with this, and as a mom balancing two kids, a job, and a husband, I know firsthand that we need to reserve our willpower to deal with everything else in our lives. You don’t want to have to use it up deciding what to eat for breakfast each day!

So sign up for our free training here, and learn some tips that you can use to make and stick with healthy habits, for life!
