So the motivation/tip for the day is:
So I’ve managed to basically complete day two of Yoga Booty Ballet (minus so of the ab work–because by that time I’m hungry, my stomach is growling/aching, and I don’t feel comfortable on the floor doing the exercises–hopefully next week). My mantra is do at least twenty minutes of a workout, in addition to the walking that I do at work, and with trying to watch my calorie intake, I should hopefully start seeing some weight come off.
You don’t have to wait until a Monday to start something new (and yes, I’m guilty of this too–saying that I’ll start working out again/eating better/whatever come Monday). The best attack is to start that day (whether or not it is a Monday or a Saturday). Everyday is a new beginning–yesterday pops into the past quickly, and saying “next Monday” is saying that you’re will to wait for the future to start something, well buttercup tomorrow is the future. If you’re wanting to start something in the present, you need to start today.
I’ve restarted my health and fitness journey so many times over the past few years, I should almost have whiplash from it. But–I started, not necessarily on Monday, it was whatever day of the week I decided to pop in a workout DVD and try to get back into shape. I’ve restarted again, and now I’m pledging to myself that anything I do is “starting” and not “restarting”, and it will always be today, and not tomorrow or next Monday.
The future isn’t guaranteed, and all we can be positive about is that we have today. So I’m promising myself that each day is a new start, and a continuation at the same time–as nothing will “stop”, it might “pause”–but it won’t “stop”.
Goals and dreams are only achieved when we put in the sweat and tears to get there. So again, if there is something that you want to do–start working towards it today.
