Focus on Fitness
Focus is an amazing tool in our quest to be fit and healthy.
Can you block out everything when you workout and push as hard as you can? Or, do you answer the phone or let your mind wander about whatever might be going on in your life at the time?
The ability to focus on the task at hand is MONUMENTAL in your ability to achieve your fitness goals. As a busy mom, I know it’s not easy. I try my best to shut off my cellphone, home phone, etc., just for the time I have scheduled to workout. I try to think about nothing else but moving my fitness forward!
How about Nutritional Focus? Do you plan your meals or just eat on the fly? This is a tough one for me. I am not a big planner, but I am trying to make this a part of my weekly shopping where I really consider the meals I will prepare for the week ahead.
The time to really have laser focus on nutrition is late in the day. That is when the “Carb Monster” can sneak into your house and jump on your back! Believe me I know! There is nothing worse than an entire day of super clean eating and then blowing it in 5 minutes right before bed time! A cup of decaf tea with a little sugar and milk helps keep my late carb cravings in check.
Everyone has a choice…what are you going to do today?
Remind yourself of the benefits:
When you’re physically active, your entire body, mind and emotional state reap the benefits. Not only do you have more energy, better balance, flexibility and strength, you also enjoy better concentration, a more positive mood, and better sleep. I have this stuck to my refrigerator to remind me how much better I feel when I keep moving and eat right.
