Non-negotiables - Do you have a list?
The hardest time to stick to living a healthy lifestyle is when life gets in the way. Identifying a list of weight loss non-negotiables allows you to keep a minimum baseline of health and wellness when your schedule gets busy or you find yourself in a season that’s emotionally heavy. Actually, a good thing to note... is that everyone's list will be a little different based upon personal values and goals.
When thinking about creating your own list of weight loss non-negotiables, you need to remember they can't be things you think you SHOULD be doing. They need to be things you know you can do no matter how crazy your schedule gets or no matter how tired you feel.
So remember to be realistic!
When we keep promises to ourselves, we find confidence and momentum!
Choose Weight Loss Non-Negotiables
So, if you are dealing with a busy schedule, a new routine, or life change, pick 3 - 5 non-negotiables and track those each week so you can see your progress. Once life slows down a bit, then that's a great time to find ways to level up your habits. But until then, just keep choosing progress over perfection!
Pro-Tip: Track your habits so you SEE how you are progressing. Fat loss and wellness is a LAG measure. And that means you have to do the things, often way longer than you really think, to begin seeing the results you are after. Also, tracking your habits lets you see how you are doing! So use this habit tracker below and track your progress.
