Kick it with Wendy in this Motivational Dance!
People always ask me how I stay in shape and mange to look so youthful and I tell them I shake it up! I just turned 63 this month and my spirit is so alive! I am just bouncing off the walls. You want to know why? I am so much better at 63 than I was at 33. I’m healthier, happier, stronger, smarter and I feel sexier!
My secret is simple. I strive to live a clean and balanced lifestyle everyday. Well I know you have heard that before. Am I right or am I right? Right! Well obviously there is a lot more to it than that in order to achieve your optimal goals.
Yes, I work out daily; yes I eat good small nutritional meals and try to keep my stress low. I also work hard, but play hard as well (The only way to go). But it still takes more to achieve your ultimate health and dream body goals.
The real test and magic is in doing all those things when you just don’t feel like doing them. I got up just this morning feeling like that. That bed felt cozy, my pillow felt warm and my body was tired. I had had a tough week. Oh and the voice in my head said, “Lay here a while. You need to rest today.” This was a perfect recipe for any excuse to skip my workout.
There are always going to be days like this. The secret sauce is pushing through those times and getting it done anyway. When you do this consistently it pays off BIG TIME and YOU WIN!
Here’s what some folks say about it:
Do the damn thing!!!
Go on girl! Do that “Four Corners” (what you called “The Shing-A-Ling)!!! Hahahaha!
I got your DVD a few weeks ago, and you’ve been kickin’ my tail ever since (but I LOVE it)! Thank you sooo much!
Wendy’s Fit Fax Tips!
Here’s how to WIN BIG on those days when you want to stay in bed or you are too tired after work to do your workout.
- Don’t entertain the thought. When you find yourself in a similar situation as I just described like feeling all warm and fuzzy in bed, immediately divert your mindset to the feeling you get when you are done with your workout and how proud you feel having accomplished it.
- Don’t negotiate. If you go back and forth negotiating with yourself on whether or not you should workout that day or if you start thinking about the busy day you have had or intend to have, you will eventually lose the battle and skip your work out. Often what follows is a pattern that snowballs you into a downward spiral, which can lead right back to ground zero – a sedentary lifestyle.
- Visualize your new body. The moment you feel a little doubt creep into your mind about not doing your workout, visualize the beautiful picture of you already in your new body or see your health goals already achieved and how amazing that feels to you. If you do this right, I guarantee you it will light a fire under your butt and you will leap out of bed or kill it in the gym right after work.
What other things have you tried and it worked for you to kick your own butt and kill it in the gym?
