The Rollercoaster Ride You Don't Want to Be On
Something sparks you to set a new wellness goal that you’re REALLY excited about.
- haven’t been sleeping well or enough
- feel so consumed with work that you got off track with your healthy habits
- are unhappy with the results from your latest doctor’s visit
- watched an inspiring movie … or were wowed by someone else’s transformation
- or even had some kind of wake-up call
So you commit to eating healthier, exercising regularly, and/or making some BIG CHANGES when it comes to your self-care.
And then you go at it … HARD!
And things are going great.
But then something unexpected pops on your schedule …. or you get a little “off your plan” … maybe you skip a workout ….
And that one miss turns into another, and another, and another.
And before you know it, you’re completely off track and upset at yourself.
A few weeks or months (or even years) go by, until the next time you find yourself back on that very same rollercoaster ride…the rollercoaster ride you don’t want to be on!
Have you ever been here before?
It can be a really painful and frustrating cycle to get stuck in.
But, I do have some really good news for you.
It makes perfect sense that you kept falling off track … because it’s almost impossible for ANYONE to keep up that level of intensity and still live a normal life!
Don’t get me wrong: Having a new wellness goal is FANTASTIC … and healthy!
BUT it’s even BETTER to find a way to work on your goals that won’t drain as much time and energy from your everyday life.
In a way that sets you up for success rather than sure failure.
PLUS, there’s a bonus: when you find a happy middle ground, you won’t find yourself on that confidence-sucking rollercoaster ride anymore.
That’s because you’ll actually be able to maintain all the results you’ve earned. (YES!!)
Finding this sustainable middle ground is key to your success … and something I actively work on with my clients. It IS possible to achieve amazing results without disrupting your entire routine and it’s what I specialize in.
Don’t just take my word for it, though. Here’s what some of my clients had to say:
Ready to Get Off that Rollercoaster Ride?
Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s important to recognize that not every new habit you start is going to be something you stick with forever. There are some that absolutely will stick and will probably change your life for the better. But just like other things you attempt in your life, not all habits are going to be perfect from beginning to end.
It’s okay to take a step back, consider where you are and whether or not your new habit is working for you. If a habit isn’t working out, it doesn’t mean you chose a bad habit, but that it doesn’t work for you personally, for your schedule, your lifestyle, or where you are right now in your life.
Remember that your priorities and goals can change as you go through life, and it’s okay for your habits to change along with them.
