Sometimes staying on track at any given time might feel a lot harder in comparison to the person next to you.
You feel like you just can’t get a good routine going.
You’re constantly negative in your mind – a whole bunch of negative self talk.
You can’t seem to stop thinking about all the better things you could be doing with your time.
I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you (for those of you that have been following for a while) that I bring this up as a subject given I am currently waiting for my flight to Hawaii as a type this. In a couple of days I will be on my way to Canada. With no return ticket just yet.
So staying on track can be hard for any number of reasons.
I’m using travel as an example, but it could simply be that you are getting started with a completely new fitness routine, that you have a business work life, that you have a huge number of events coming up, that your friends and family closest to you don’t have the same mentality towards health and fitness like you do.
Let’s talk about how to combat this…..
How To Stay On Track When It Isn’t Always Easy
Whatever your challenge is, that one thing that kind of feels like your the only one who has to deal with it, don’t use it as an excuse. Plan for it.
Wasn’t I just saying in my last post that the things you have to work really hard for you end up being most proud of?
So think about it.
What is your hard?
How can you plan for it in advance?
Once you find it of course you can do things like:
- Plan ahead
- Break it down
- Track your progress
- Don’t make it a choice, prioritise the highest benefits and I can almost guarantee you will end up with a better option if you value your body
- Get support and encouragement
I want to ask you something through: is it a road block?
I’m going to say no. It definitely isn’t. There is a way around it. It may feel like everyone around you has it easy to get to their goals because they don’t have the same road block you do.
But the truth is, everyone has their own roadblock. That is actually not really a road block if you know what I mean.
So, it’s official the airport has NO food options. I opted for a tofu veggie and rice for an early dinner before I board soon. I struggled to walk past McDonald’s – but the only reason I did that was because I knew I really wanted some veggies before the flight. To avoid feeling sluggish, and fatty foods usually make you want more…..
This is the perfect example of the fact that it’s not a choice of what I really want or crave. It’s a priority of knowing I don’t want to crace more on my flight, I want to get some nutrients in and I really don’t want to create congestion in my bowels before boarding a 9 hour flight.
