So you've had a tough summer. Those goals and habits you created two months ago are nowhere to be found. You want to get back on track… but you don't know how! Here are my three tools that have actually worked in my life.

  1. Disregard your Feelings

  2. Create a Schedule

  3. Don't Go Alone


Last year I was working out and listening to a podcast. To be honest, at that time, I hadn't exercised for weeks because I "wasn't feeling up to it". As I was lifting weights, the podcast I was listening greatly convicted me. The woman talked about how often times we wait to do something when we "feel like it". She boldly stated that when it comes to positive habits in our lives, there will never be a time that we will "feel like it" every time, always.

After that I decided that I would ignore my "Feelings" when it came to doing tasks that are good for my body. Whether it be waking up early, exercising, journaling, or reading a book, I decided to lead my feelings and not let my feelings lead me.

“Some people love exercise. The endorphins and all that. I do not. So what? I don’t like exercise, but I like having exercised. So I get up and do it without thinking. I simply do not have an opinion until I’m done. It’s been over 6 months, 6 days a week. I still don’t like it, but it doesn’t matter.”

When you make your goal, whether it be to lose 10 pounds of fat or gain 10 pounds of muscle, decide that you don't have a choice anymore, you will work out. This can make all the difference between staying consistent and not staying consistent.

What in your life are procrastinating on because your "not feeling up to it"?
