What’s your hurdle?
What’s stopping you from taking the first leap? Do you even know?
Is there something that you want to try or do yet you’re afraid or busy or tired or bored or whatever you tell yourself that gets in your own way?
My hurdle is losing X number of pounds. It’s sooo much work to lose so little yet so easy to gain it all back plus more in a weekend, that my motivation has been, “I’ll try again on Monday.” And I do and fail by Tuesday. Sometimes Wednesday. And then I have to wait until Monday again, or some other crazy rational thought!
But today is Tuesday and I decided to jump over the hurdle right now and start on an off day. I need to do something right now and don’t want to wait any longer. So Tuesday is my new Monday. I jumped and didn’t fall!
I made a big pot of skinny girl vegetable soup that I can enjoy all week! I love soup. It’s comfort food to me and that’s what I need without the calories!
I’m a food lover so depriving myself of good food is not an option. Having something that is healthy and ready to eat and I don’t have to worry about portions is what I think I need to get over the hurdle in my head!
Wish me luck!! And I wish you luck taking that first leap, even if you don’t want to, to get over your own hurdle! Just do it! The first leap is always the hardest! Namaste.
