For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

You Are Not Alone

We all have things that derail us…..

As I worked out yesterday morning I thought how we are ALL in this healthy eating and exercising thing together.

Each of us lives in our own life cell, but we all have things that cause us to derail. There are the “big” life changing events that derail us, however those are not the times we need to be the most aware of our habits because we are in survival mode.  It’s the typical daily life situations that we need to walk through with a different lens and make the most of.

We are not alone. Those derailments like snowstorms keeping you cooped up and eating to many carbs, the meeting you spent days preparing for and losing sleep over, or the kids getting sick for yet another time this cold season. Those are the daily derailments we can work through together to get you back on track.

First, be gentle on yourself. Self-talk can be a motivator or a motivation killer. What you say to yourself stays in your mind and guess what?? Your self talk dictates what your body does. If you tell yourself tomorrow is a new start, your body reacts. You wake up feeling better and ready to go.

Second, reach out! The more you connect with like minded people sharing the same goal the more successful you will be.

I have a group text with my daughters that is only for healthy living motivation. It’s a safe place to share some of the “derailments” or successes for the week. Just when you think you have derailed, a positive post or success may spark a new energy and help get you back on track.

And so, as another day goes by, remember, change your thoughts, change your life!
