8 tips for getting back on track

by purelytwins

Hey luvs,

We all go through periods where we might loosen up on things like missing workouts, eating out more, having more sweets than normal.

8 tips to get back on track

We know we did, this past week while we were home for the Thanksgiving holiday.  We are human. We like to eat. We like to be lazy. We make excuses to miss a workout. We know crazy, but it’s happens. And we know our 6 tips for staying healthy and happy this holiday season, so we know how to be stress free 😉

But we have learned over the years that we have two choices:

1. Keep dwelling on these “no-nos” and keep being sad and making excuses for our behavior. OR

2.  Just START over the next day. The next meal. Don’t stress over the past. Keep moving forward.

We are getting better at choice #2. Yes we still catch ourselves doing #1 at times. But we look at each other and tell ourselves it’s okay. We don’t have to be perfect. And that right there takes a load off our shoulders.

In today’s Purely Talk we share 8 tips to help you get back on track and finish the year strong!

Are you with us? No more excuses. No more “I will wait to Monday to start.” The time is now!

A quick recap of the video:

  1. Go now. Start right now. Pick one thing and just do it.
  2. Have a plan. Make a schedule. Get your food prep for the week.
  3. Focus on sleep.  Rest when you can as it will help with your overall stress and keeps your hormones balance.
  4. DON’T do extremes. Keep meals balance. Don’t go all drastic and eat just one meal a day or workout for 3 hours.
  5. Look at what you have done so far…what you have accomplished. Write them down so you can see how far you have come.
  6. Stop being negative! Enough said about that.
  7. Keep up with drinking water. Get your workouts in. Eat your veggies, etc.
  8. Affirmations. Every morning wake up and say 3 positive things. Start the day positive.

Just remember you CAN DO IT. Don’t dwell on the past. We believe in you!

Great reminders girls! This is especially helpful with the spread of posts around this time talking about things you can do more on the extreme side.

I agree – it’s easiest to just move on and up! Think about how much you have accomplished this year. For myself I know over-indulging just doesn’t make me feel very good so I generally don’t do it. But it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of the holidays and not sleep enough or take care of yourself!

Thank you for these tips, especially the last one!! That is so great! I have done this in the past, but have gotten off track with it. I am starting now with words of affirmation to myself! And every morning! 🙂 God Bless! Love you gals! 🙂

I LOVE the tip about staying positive! No negativity. It is too exhausting and wastes too much time during what should be a fun time of year. How are you doing with your “self-love”? Have a great weekend! XOXO
