Do You Need A New Normal?
Have you ever stopped to think about the things you do over and over again?
I’m talking about those repeated behaviors and habits that have just become “normal” for you. Things that you just do without really even thinking about them.
For many of us our “normal” has caused us to become overweight, stressed out, exhausted and overwhelmed.
We want to things to change but we feel as if we are caught up in a vicious cycle and can’t seem to find a way out.
Well guess what, there is a way out!
If you want to lose weight, have more energy and spend more time enjoying life, then you absolutely can!!!!
All you have to do is create new habits that support the life and results that you desire. You simply have to create a new “normal” for yourself.
The key to success here is to realize that creating a new normal is a gradual process that takes time.
If you try to drastically change too many things too quickly you will be setting yourself up for failure and disappointment.
Choose just one thing that you can begin changing TODAY to help you create your new normal.
Make this change SIMPLE.
• If you have a fast food habit on the way to and/or from work, simply change your route to bypass your usually stopping place. Additionally, create a habit of popping a piece of gum on your mouth when you get in the car.
• If have an afternoon vending machine habit don’t keep money or bankcards with you at work. Keep healthy snacks and a fresh water bottle at your desk or in your locker.
• If you have and snooze button habit that is causing you to skip your morning workouts, put your alarm clock across the room so that you must get out of bed to turn it off.
• If you have tv/couch potato habit that has hinders your from completely necessary tasks place sticky note over the sensor on your tv each night before bed so that get home from work and habitually reach for the remote it won’t work. This will be a reminder to do what needs to be done first!

How to Build Healthy Living Habits for Fitness and Losing Weight
If you struggled to lose weight or increase your fitness level you a have no doubt searched for and tried numerous meal plans and fitness programs.
How many of these fitness programs and or meals plans have you tried? How well did they work out for you?
They may have worked for a little while, when you followed them, but were you able to stick with it?
Statistics (as well and my professional observations) have shown that exercise programs and meal plans are not stand alone effective solutions for weight loss. Why? Because you must follow them in order for them to work. To find success in reaching your fitness goals you need more than just a plan, you must develop sustainable healthy lifestyle habits.
What Is a Habit Anyway?
When I refer to building healthy living habits, I am referring to anything you do regularly that promotes the building, achieving or maintaining your complete fitness goals. An unhealthy habit would promote the opposite. It would be anything you do regularly that hinders you from being Completely Fit.
A habit is something that we do automatically — as in, without really thinking about it. Which is why identifying and changing your own habits so hard. How can you think about the stuff that you don’t have to think about? Changing a habit takes time and often requires outside coaching and accountability. Your unhealthy habits weren’t developed over night, so new healthy habits won’t either.
All Habits Have A Trigger & A Reward
You see, all habits need a trigger — a little reminder that says, “Hey, you should do this action now.” Habits also need a reward — a little reminder that what you just did was a good thing. There is ALWAYS a payoff, even if you aren’t readily aware of what it is.
Healthy Living Habits Happen When People Get Together to Support and Help Each Other Out!
Finally, keep in mind that permanent healthy living habits are best created and sustained through supportive relationships. Look to your peers, coach, family, friends, coworkers, Facebook friends, groups and fitness forums for mutual support.
Finding your own triggers are hard. Seeing other people’s is easy. Remembering to tell yourself, “Great job!” can be hard. Remembering to tell other people is easy.
Figuring out how to work new foods, new activities, and new steps into your own life is hard. Watching and learning from a whole bunch of other people like you, who are trying to get to the same place you are, is just so much easier!
