It does not have to be all or nothing. Why? Because life stuff will always get in the way, always!
Some action is better than perfection and some action is better than nothing.
Me this month.
My usual non-negotiables are
12,000 per day – this requires a lot of effort as I have a sit down job
I go to the gym to lift weights 3 times a week and run 5km twice
To keep my bedtime routine
To drink enough water so my pee is clear
To hit my protein daily target
To eat 7-10 fruit and veg each day
What life happened
My daughter has been on school holidays and I have had no car – I have been unable to go to the gym for the last 2 weeks
What did I do instead – 3 home workouts per week
Not exactly the workout I get at the gym but it was still action
Work and study – So busy with these
Steps had to take a hit the last 2 weeks – only been doing 5000-10000
I’ve been unable to get out for my long walks because my daughter is not up for it
I’ve just been going when I can around work and hubby getting home – some action at least
I got a puppy
This affecting my sleep for 4 nights – 5th day I felt like a zombie!
I still stayed in my routine but I was not getting the 7 hours, more like 2 LOL!
All good now and he has slept for 2 whole nights which means I have too!
The other non-negotiables have been on point. Aside from the sleep thing which we cant always control I’m still really happy with my month overall. I didn’t let the whole thing slip, I did my best with what time I had, resources and energy I had. Next month Hanna is back at school, I am back in the office 2 days a week which means I can get back in the gym, my routine returns! Who knows what life will bring next month though.
There is never ever a perfect time to start something and its ok if your week wasn’t perfect. Instead of reflecting on what you didn’t do, reflect on what you did do and pat yourself on the back for that.
