Ever get overwhelmed? I mean super overwhelmed? Last week was a tad overwhelming for me. I’m doing some training for work that at times feels daunting and the last week of round 1 of the fitness program I’m doing was beyond a challenge. Add that to the rest of a crazy, albeit fun filled week and I guess my fitness and nutrition just went seriously off.
I don’t have any before and after statistics and photo’s like I have been showing you. I seriously just was that slack on business. And that is a drawback to working from home with your own business. You HAVE to set boundaries and work a business, like it is a business, even if you’re not punching a time clock. Working from home has a zillion advantages. And being able to set your own hours is one of them, make your own schedule is another. Well last week all that went right out the window.
It was like a steamroller effect the training I’m doing is training for the upper tiers of this business, something that right now I’m not nearing on that level. But I wanted the challenge. And I did and am learning so much. I am so thankful to have a fabulous team and mentor behind me who offers this training even if you’ve only just started your business. And I KNOW this training is helping me with my business and will continue to help me grow. But, you have to know when to put the blinders on. I was overwhelmed with the training and busy with other events and tasks in life and I just didn’t work on social media at all. And didn’t work on any personal development.
But you know what? I’m human. And all I have to do, is do. Get back to it.
And as far as my fitness and nutrition? When we bumped the workouts up to 45 minutes and increased the difficulty, I had a whole lot of fail. Or, at least was I was perceiving as failure. Once again, I’m not at that level. But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t getting anything out of the workout. I just let my head and my ego get in the way. Nutritionally, most days were spot on. But we did have a few days that we indulged in the wrong kind of foods. And I felt it. I was sluggish and bloated. And I didn’t lose ANY weight.
BUT, the good news is, I didn’t gain any either. My focus may not have been on point, I may have been distracted and yeah, maybe I did eat nachos and salsa, a bit too much nacho’s and salsa (yeah I suffered for that one). And definitely too much chocolate the last few days. But I’ve now made good choices a habit. And as long as I don’t sway from those habits too long, I won’t lose all I’ve learned.
Lessons learned. All these new tools I have at my disposal for getting healthy and fit aren’t just tools, or programs. This is my LIFE. This is me choosing my lifestyle. How I want to eat, how I want to feel. I no longer let emotions, especially negative ones guide my lifestyle as much anymore. And that is GOLD!
- No experience is ever a waste of time. No matter how badly you think you are doing it, you are LEARNING.
- Get out of my way, my own way. I seriously can get lost in my own mind games I play with myself and looking at thing from a defeatist standpoint. Instead, I need to take what I have learned and use it to better myself and then get back up and start again.
- Good habits can not only be learned, but retained and called upon even when you may sabotage yourself.
- I need better organizational skills.
- I’m only human!
- I’m thinking about starting a PCS nutrition group soon because I’m so excited about my nutrition plan and how it’s completely changed my daily habits and choices.
- I really need to work on my organizational skills so I don’t get so overwhelmed.
- I’m thankful for my fitness programs and PCS because, I’m only human!
