You’ve just nailed your best program ever. You’ve seen results you’ve never seen before. You feel like a brand new person: when you sit at your desk, you actually miss holding plank (we get it, we feel the same way). So now what? Don’t let all that good, sweaty work go to waste. You’ve danced, bounced and toned your way to a new body and a new mindset, so go forth and conquer a whole new routine. The first step is simple: set your intention.
Intentions are everything. They align you with what’s important and keep you engaged when you want to give up. If you’re going to maintain your healthiest relationship ever, you gotta have one. So here are a few options:
My intention is…
…to make it all about today. for the triber whose mind is always racing too far into the future. You don’t need to work for the future, just work for this moment. Lace your sneaks, walk out the door and do it today.
…to feel grounded. for the triber who feels pulled in a million different directions. You can create a sense of centeredness and calm just by committing to your healthy routine and consistently staying present.
…to push myself past my limits. for the triber who doesn’t like to take a risk. Your body and mind are stronger than you admit, and when you let yourself push past your comfort zone, you’ll almost always surprise yourself.
…to feel balanced. for the triber who struggles with having a narrow, singular focus. You get in your own world, and that keeps you from experiencing the good parts of your life and your workout.
…to simplify my life and allow it to be easy. for the triber who fights against flow. Your body and mind work in perfect flow when you let go of tensions that don’t serve you. In order to work hard in the right places, it’s time to let go in the right places, too.
Setting an intention is the very first (most important) step. Pick one of these intentions, or set your own, and check back this week for how to use them to keep your momentum going.
