Get back on track now that the kids are heading back to school! Here are some great ideas to ward off the I-do-not-have-time thought process and take control once more:

  • Commit to a goal and make it reasonable and attainable! Maybe there is a fall reunion coming up, a concert…those are great ways for setting a specific date of reaching your goal and making the fitness routine a habit.
  • Get that goal in writing!! A great way of doing this is by utilizing a family calendar. Everyone in the family will see what you are doing and they will all know that you mean business! (Think about it…we have to get to school open house, sports and there’s your husbands after-work meetings, all on the family calendar; so why not put your appointment for exercise on it as well!)
  • Pack your food too!! Running errands all day? This will keep you out of the fast food lane. Remember your water, too!
  • You CAN do it!! Some people say 21 days to make a habit, 40 days say others…either way, don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day of exercise. Get right on that horse again and keep pressing forward!!
  • Find a support system! This can be as simple as physically showing your family where you have plotted your workout appointments, and share your fitness goals. Your family will help you stay on track!! Or, you can find a group of other moms on the same path who also need the support. You can exchange texts, emails, or use the same fitness application that allows the sharing of your progress!

So make your plan! You are worth it!!

Remember: “Most people don’t plan to fail; they fail to plan.” –John L. Beckley
