things I’m doing to get myself back on track
I shared last week about the trainwreck of a month my February was and truth is I struggle to get back on track too sometimes

𝗪𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲: I’m taking it one day at a time and focusing on the 24 hours ahead of me. I shared this phrase last week and it really has been working for me. No stressing over tomorrow, or the weekend or when motivation fades, I’m just taking it one day at a time.
𝐆𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: I’ve been pre planning my food the night before, making sure I have healthy options prepped and ready, and if I’m hungry I’m choosing to eat a little bit more in favor of gritting my teeth, trying to will myself through and eventually finding myself with a spoon in the peanut butter jar at 10pm at night. Truth is, I’d much rather consume an extra 200 calories a day and sustain it, than an extra 2000 calories thanks to too much restriction.
𝐏𝐮𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐲𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐞: I’m focusing on doing something rather than nothing. I’ve been getting back into the gym, having a game plan for workouts, but at the same time being flexible with it. If I’m not feeling it, I’m just getting myself to move. With time I know the intensity will come back but right now I just need to rebuild my routine.

I’m focusing on progress not perfection.
Taking action even if it’s small or not necessarily what I want to do.
I’m just winning the day.
