Sooo…Its time for some REAL TALK. I am a huge promoter of being honest with yourself and of accountability. I also a NOT a fan of fake people. You know..Those people who make it seem like they have their shit together 24/7 and that life is perfect. Well…I do not pretend to be one of them. And now is one of those times that I need to be honest with you and with myself.
I believe that you can create an amazing life and live a life by design…and I DO…but sometimes…shit hits the fan and life gets in the way. You try to please everyone and do everything while neglecting the things that really matter including yourself. You end up being REALLY BUSY but actually…at the end of the day, you have really not accomplished anything. This just leaves you feeling like a failure, defeated, tired, emotional, snappy, bitchy, and all around just not a nice person to be around. You neglect relationships that need attention and you keep saying…Oh I’ll get to that later. BUT…then you never do. Now you are right back in that vicious cycle all over again the next day. Sound familiar?
Well…This has been me…for the last few weeks…& I am over it. I am tired of feeling like a PMSing hampster on a wheel. I am done with the run around. I have totally fallen off track with my eating (not that I eat terrible but just not the norm) I haven’t worked out..Like a legit full on workout Shaun T/Autumn Calabrese butt kicked style…since I came back from leadership. My house is a mess, laundry everywhere, toys everywhere, dishes everywhere and it is in serious need of a deep cleaning.
I am tired, cranky, and I have not been able to really focus. I can’t get through a paragraph of my books, prayer time, or devotional time without the endless mind chatter taking over. I have totally not been giving the kids the attention they deserve because I am just treading water trying to keep up with it all. I feel like a failure to my family, in my business, to myself and the list goes on. I have created these impossible to do lists that I could never accomplish each day and end up getting super distracted and don’t even finish a 1/4 of it. Ughhh…I hate this feeling…but It happens. And like I said, NO MORE.
I am telling you all of this to show that life is not always perfect and I did this to myself. I have total power to change it and I plan to. I need accountability just as much as I offer it up to other people. I am starting the 21 day fix again tomorrow. I vow to do this everyday full out and give it all I have. I will do all the workouts, follow the meal plan, and drink my shakeology everyday. I will get up early every morning before the family and get in ME time so I can be more dedicated to them when it is their time. I will make realistic daily goals and I WILL get them done. I will not stay up super late trying to “tread water”. I will give my mind and my body the respect it deserves.
I want to offer this same challenge out to any of you that are reading this that feel the same way. If you were ever a part of the Fit Life Community (FLC Accountability group) or you are now…I challenge you to start with me tomorrow to get back on track. If you have never joined us I ask you to start with us tomorrow. Even if it is just me…I am all in but I want you to do this with me. If you need guidance on where to start or you want to do the 21 Day Fix or you want a program for 100% beginners then I will help you.
