Fitness with Lianne
I’ve heard them all.
Stop making them! Not because it’s bad... but because why should you feel the need to. You shouldn’t have to explain your decision making to others. It’s FINE, you make a decision based on your priorities.
If you want to do something you make and find a way. Fact.
I’m the same. It just sometimes isn’t a priority therefore you shift that thing from your mentally prepared priority list.
Here’s my list for today (it’s Saturday so it’s not extensive...) and I split it into definite things and then maybes... the maybes make their way into the definites if the definites get done.... it’s also rest day for me so no exercise although that would usually make the definite list because to me that’s one of my priorities.
-Make sure I keep kids alive and happy (mostly happy because Georgie isn’t happy when I ask her to put things away or do some homework to be honest but it’s gotta be done 🤷♀️)
-Look over Clients food diary
-Call Ash (Husband is away in the UK at the moment)
-Do Stretches at lunch when Fin is asleep
-Attend party for an hour with kids at the pool
-Make sure babysitter is here for 5.30
-Drop Georgie at ballet recital (must remember it’s before 6pm... then I arrive at 6.55pm to watch.
-Drop Georgie at home
-Add food intake into myfitnesspal (do it on a break at the recital)
-Attend mince pie party 😍
-Food shop (it can be done tomorrow instead
-Park with the kids
-Bake banana loaf because bananas are going off...!
-Create new blog post
I have to have the maybe list because if it’s all on the definite list it’s overwhelming.
Try it. Instead of one list, make the two lists. Take the pressure off. BUT think of your priorities. If you’re wanting to lose weight, whatever it is that is going to get you towards that goal (attend exercise class/online class, go to PT session/go to the gym/go for a run and prep meals, add meals into myfitnesspal) MUST MUST MUST make it onto the definite list, NEVER the maybe!
So, if there is something that you keep saying you “wish” you could do.. then shift those priorities. MAKE it a priority 💪
Side note- obviously things can happen in the day that may shift the priorities but if you have a list to go by, it’s likely that you’ll stick at it. Just like food, it’s about being mindful 😀
