Right now no one is thinking about New Year’s resolutions, but you should be. Now is a great time to get started on them. As homeschoolers, the new school year is really when our new year starts. We have the next 3 months planned out already so why not throw in your fitness and nutrition plan?
The easiest way to make sure your plan gets put into action is to include the kids with you. Every month I tape new workouts for my Workout of the Month Club and my daughters get involved. Last month, my 6 year old worked out right along side me so the other moms in the club could see how to modify workouts for their smaller children. Since my workouts are quick and fun, the kids have a good time and it takes less time than teaching a math lesson.
Planning your fitness goals now is important because as the holidays get closer, you become busier and if it hasn’t become a habit, that busyness becomes an excuse. Telling me your busy is not a reason. It just tells me that your health is not a priority in your life. Anyone can chisel out 20 minutes in their day to make their health a priority.
I know homeschooling is a lot of work. I’ve been home educating my children for 12 years. I know church is a huge commitment. I’ve been a worship leader for 8 years. I know having a business is a lot of work. I’ve been running my own built from scratch business for 3 years. I could use all my busyness as an excuse to not get my workout done, for stopping at the fast food joint for dinner or for not getting enough sleep, but I choose not to.
Why? Because if I don’t take care of myself, who will take care of my family?
You are too important to neglect!
Start planning and taking action now. Believe me, you’ll thank me later!
PS. My Workout of the Month Club is only $9.95/mth. I do all the planning for you!
