GenFit is a place where I share even more ideas to help you achieve your health and fitness goals and comes with a small community of people to help encourage and support you on your journey. Are you ready to be the best version of yourself?
Why do you want to get fit? Why do you want to workout and eat healthy? What is your why?
You will only achieve that, if you make yourself a priority. So many of us put our family, our friends, our careers before ourselves. All those things are important, but are they more important than your why? If you’re like me, your why may be for your friends, family, or career. Finding balance in life is one of the hardest things we have to do; but it is pivotal to our journey to make our fitness a priority.
For me, the best way to do that is by making a date with yourself. Whenever my friends want to go out for brunch, or my family wants to catch a movie, I put it in my phone so Remember. I set an alert for the day before and an hour before. My schedule is blocked off for that time I want to spend with them. During that time they have almost my full attention, I’m not worried about work or the gym or church. I am present to the people I’m with.
This is how you have to be with yourself, you have to be intentional about the time you spend with yourself. When you’re working out, you’re working out. Focus on doing every exercise to the best of your ability. Make a date wit yourself. Put “Gym Time” on your calendar and set alerts. When something comes up, you know you are already booked, because you are getting your fit on.
The hard truth is that if you don’t make yourself a priority, no one else will either. Your health is yours and you have to do what needs to be done. So schedule your date with yourself. Pick out your cutest workout gear and check Pinterest for the best hairstyles for the gym. Make yourself feel special and get excited about taking care of your own wellness. Of course, you could also just lace up and go, whatever works for you!
