1.a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.“this can develop into a bad habit“
Often when we hear this word, the first thing that comes to mind is a “bad” habit. Bad habits (when we have them…and let’s face it, we ALL have some bad habits) seem to have complete control of us. People who smoke, for example, have an incredibly difficult time quitting. They resort to gums, patches, and even prescription drugs or hypnosis to try to quit. Or maybe you bite your nails (not really “bad” but a little unsanitary lol)..but it just seems too difficult to stop. But what about “good” habits?
I have encouraging news for those of you who may only think of habits as “bad”. What if I told you that you can form “good” habits? I’m telling you this because it’s true! Habits are things that continue even when our circumstances change. I’ll use myself as an example: I started working out almost seven years ago. Even with moves, pregnancy, deaths in the family, health issues with loved ones, lots of travel, my husband being gone frequently while taking care of the family…I’ve made exercise a habit. It’s what I do. I’m grateful for this habit. It helps me to feel “normal” when things around me may not be.
GETTING INTO “THE HABIT”
So getting in to the habit of doing things seems so much harder when the habit is good…at least I think so. Sometimes you have to wake up earlier to get in a workout, or you have to change the way you prepare meals to maintain a healthier lifestyle than you did before you decided to get healthy. I think their are two camps and most fall into the second one: 1. People who look forward to their new habit and 2. People who have to make themselves do their new habit…But once you’ve done your new “good” habit enough times, it becomes etched into your routine and just who you are. That’s when it feels weird NOT to do your “good” habit.
HABITS BASED COACHING
So that’s why part of the curriculum I offer is based on habits and adding good habits slowly. People who completed the nutrition program through Precision Nutrition lost weight and were in the best shape of their lives. Now I can offer you the same great program as your coach. No complex diet programs or killing yourself in the gym. What you WILL get is education and support. It’s not easy, but it is worth it.
Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired all the time? Mama, are you ready to have the energy to keep up with your family’s busy schedule? Maybe your whole family needs to get healthier. Wherever you are, I can meet you there and work to get your toward your goal.
Are you on the fence? Maybe you don’t know if this would be for you or not. There’s only one way to find out.
