One “Holiday” You Don’t Want to Celebrate


Today is a big date … It’s January 19 – aka “quitter’s day.” 


The company that runs Strava (the fitness tracking app) says that’s the day by which most people who set New Years fitness and wellness goals end up quitting.


You do NOT have to be one of those people!


In this blog, we're going to talk about one of the MOST IMPORTANT reasons people give up on their goals. 


It’s because:


They didn’t have a plan for when they slipped up.


And by slip up, we mean when they missed a workout, ate foods they weren’t “supposed to eat,” stayed up too late, or somehow “failed” to follow through with their plan.


Fact: Everyone slips up from time to time! (EVERYONE.) 


Knowing ahead of time what to do AFTER it happens goes a long way toward making sure that one slip-up doesn’t turn into two or twenty.


A solid post-slip up plan will help you:

  1. Recognize WHY it happened
  2. Reevaluate your process to see if it needs to be changed
  3. Get back on-plan ASAP


Here’s what we're talking about:


Let’s say it’s a Thursday night and you’re been doing GREAT all week … but as you are finishing up work for the day, all you want is to get some takeout and veg in front of the TV instead of getting in your workout.


So that’s what you do.


And you feel a little guilt after, right? It’s time to give up! 




What if instead, you took a second to figure out WHY you didn’t follow your plan: i.e., “My willpower was low because I had a long, stressful day at work, plus I was tired. I’ve been going hard all week.”


And then once you realized the “why,” you reevaluated. Maybe you need to:

  • Add a rest day to your week,
  • Keep a healthy ready-to-go meal at home, and/or
  • Have a short and fun “off day” workout on standby with your favorite stress-busting exercises.


Then, the next day, it’s time to get back on track, with your contingency plan in place.


Now instead of the guilt, you feel EMPOWERED because you’re bulletproofing your plan. 


Your fitness & wellness journey is a PROCESS. What it looks like changes over time with the seasons, your schedule, your life, and your goals.


This is a BIG area we focus on with our clients – because the fact is, these are the moments having a COACH can be make-or-break for your goals! 


In fact, it’s one of the main reasons WHY people hire coaches in the first place.


An experienced coach can help you see the bigger picture and come up with solutions to keep you on track and moving FORWARD.
