Why you need to forget about Monday

How many diets start on a Monday? How many gym memberships are signed on a Monday? How many rules, rituals and guidelines are set up to be adhered to starting next Monday?

And how many of these same things are nowhere to be seen by Wednesday or Thursday?

Think about this in your own life. How many times have you said to yourself, you'll start {insert what you want) on Monday?

Because we all know that Monday's are magical. It's when the things you've been putting off doing can suddenly occur right? When all of a sudden you'll have the motivation and inspiration to do all the things, and live the life you really want for yourself.

This power of Monday thing is impressive. Except for one thing. We all know that's not true.

Don't think you're alone in this either. We've all been here.

We can't act until all our ducks are in a row. Until we've followed the rules (that we created for ourselves). And we keep putting something off; especially when it comes to our health and wellbeing; because things aren't all in order?

Does any of this sound familiar?

"I can't go to the gym because I don't have the right gear."

"I can't make a nourishing food choice because I've already made a poor one today. I'll eat whatever now and start again tomorrow."

You keep saying, to yourself, and others that you'll do the things you really want for yourself - on Monday.

And more often than not, Monday never comes. Or if it does, you've now placed so much pressure on yourself that the experience feels doomed from the outset.

But I'm not here to tell you anything that you don't already know.

I am here to remind you however, that there is no perfect time. There is no perfect. We have now. And in fact that's all we have.
So do.

And I'm as guilty of this practice and behaviour as the next human.

If I don't have my yoga mat, which of course is ideal for the way I like to sweat and practice, yoga won't be great.

If I forget one ingredient at the store for dinner, I just want to throw the whole idea away and order in.

When instead, my yoga practice can be as awesome as always - the mat is unimportant to that fact. And instead of making the exact recipe I had in my head, I can roll with it and either substitute with something I do have or leave it out altogether and create something new and wonderful!

It's a matter of choice. Of headspace. And most crucially, of practice.

If you're currently choosing, (yes it is a choice), to eat food that doesn't love you back, and then feel bad about it, this is a behaviour that's within your power to change.

And that change doesn't even need to hurt.

What if, instead of putting off feeling and looking great, until everything was perfect (never going to happen), you simply said yes and welcomed something new into your world?

Can you imagine what that would feel like? 

Momentum is a powerful thing and if we can find this when it comes to healthy eating, alongside support and just the right amount of practical guidance at the right time, we're setting ourselves up for success.

When I first started on my journey to better eating, sans diets and misery, I focused on eating less food from packets and cans.

It can be as simple and unadulterated as that. In fact, the more basic the step - the better promise of success it holds.

And if a supportive, guided and enjoyable journey to feeling and looking great - without the endless dieting cycle and quick fixes - is what you're after, you can now enrol in my proven and life-changing program, Path to Wholefoods.
