I’ve decided that I’m on a Tough Love kick so over the next few weeks I’m going to be dishing out quite a bit of it. It’s kind of appropriate with Valentines day coming up soon too don’t you think?!
Don’t be scared. Although I may be tough on you I really am doing it out of LOVE because I want whats best for YOU!
Have you given yourself permission to love YOURSELF lately?
As women I think it is so easy to get caught up in our roles as moms, wives, care takers, business owners or whatever your job title may be that we forget to put ourselves first and often feel guilty when and if we do.
If that sounds like you, I urge you to rethink that. You NEED to place a priority on YOUR LIFE. If you always put yourself last, one day you may not be able to take care of all your other responsibilities the way you want or need to.
I know, I have been there and almost had the nervous breakdown to show for it. It took a few tough questions from my doctor, some prozac and a good look in the mirror to realize that my priorities had to change. She was the person that handed out the Tough Love to me and I don’t want you to have to go to the doctor like I did to get it too. (Trust me, I’m cheaper and I won’t poke you with a needle!) 😉
Today my health comes FIRST. I workout daily, eat better than I have my entire life and I have made my passion to help others my career.
I’m 43. I’m not perfect. I still struggle with making healthy choices all the time. Sometimes I fail. You will too and that is OK. It has taken me 3.5 years to learn how to make better decisions and I’m still learning everyday. But you know what? I LOVE IT and I LOVE paying it forward even more.
I started my journey with P90X and found a coach to help me. Today I’m a online fitness Coach and the founder of Team Lean Life and I can help you choose a fitness and nutrition plan that will help you and plug you into my TEAM for support.
If you would like to make a gradual change in your lifestyle I urge you to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, title it “I’M READY TO MAKE A CHANGE!”, tell me your goals and your struggles and let’s get started TODAY.
