31 Days of Health. Day 31: Give Yourself a Break!

Ahhhh! It’s the last day of 31 Days of Health!! Amazing. I’ve noticed some consistency with the folks liking these posts – thank you. I hope there have been some positive rewards for you as a result of following the thoughts I have to share. In a day or two I will get into a recap of these 31 days, and what to look forward to from Fabulous Nutrition. For now, let’s devour this last healthy action!!!

Today isn’t necessarily about, “Hey, put your feet up and relax!” Of course if you need a reason to do so, please, put your feet up and relax! Today is more about accepting imperfection. I’ve thrown a lot out there this month to help you move toward a healthy lifestyle from including certain healthy foods in your diet to practicing healthier habits. There are even more things you could do to carry out a healthy lifestyle. And you know what? It’s not all always going to be easy.

Life happens. Some days you’ll be a little short on time, short on patience, short on sleep, or short on all three together! Don’t stress it if you slept in even though you went to bed planning otherwise, or had good intentions to avoid added sugar but couldn’t resist a cupcake, or tried to start your day on a positive note but your children have truly tried your patience today.

What matters most is your persistence over time. Think: progress over perfection. In fact, all the good and bad, right and wrong, ups and downs…that is perfection! We can’t know and appreciate success without knowing and experiencing failure.

Be patient with yourself. Appreciate your successes. Appreciate your failures! Give yourself a break! And when you do fall, intend to get back up.

Happy Day 31! You made it!!!

31 Days of Health

Why is health so far out of reach? Because sometimes our goals are so huge and far away we think: that’s not realistic, I don’t have the time for that, that will never be me, I don’t have the money….

We get stuck thinking about the dream without thinking about how we can actually get there.

Here’s a hint: baby steps create powerful change. And while change is scary and baby steps are not as gratifying as the big reward, they yield the results you dream of.
But first, you have to want it!!

So with 2019 upon us, start dreaming of better things for yourself. It’s OK to want more, and still be grateful for what you do have! I am excited to announce I am launching Fabulous Nutrition on Instagram on New Year’s Day. It is one of my favorite holidays, because it is the beginning of new adventures…or the growth of others!!! Start your next adventure with me with 31 Days of Health.

31 Days of Health is a free program you can privately participate in. Starting January 1, each day will suggest encouraging actions that will guide you toward your version of a healthy lifestyle. Follow those here on the blog, or follow @fabulous_nutrition on Instagram! Bring in 2019 strong!

Let’s do this!
