The 10 tips fit and healthy people follow

By Christina Cavaleri October 12, 2017

Meditation is key

1. They have goals. This is important, if you don’t know where you are going in life, then how will you get there. It’s not just goals for work it’s goals in all areas of your life, your fitness, your career, your relationship and financially.

2. Write down what it is that you want to achieve, when you want to achieve it, map out what needs to be done to take you from point A (where you are) to point B (where you want to be). Ask the universe for what you want and then work for it.

3. They follow the 80/20 rule. It is too hard to be 100% healthy all the time. The 80/20 rules gives you some room to wiggle. This means you will never feel like a failure when you eat a bad meal.

4.They find what works for them Your friends may love boxing but you absolutely dread going, that’s okay. Maybe pilates is more your thing.

5. Commitments need to outweigh your comforts. “Nothing good happens inside your comfort zones.”

6. Don’t take health too seriously, that’s just not healthy.

7. But they take their training seriously. Fit people are fit because they fought for it.

8. They are connected, yes, they have lifted their eyes from social media and connected with the world.

9. They’re selfless and they contribute to others life in a positive way

10. Personal meditation. This crucial. There are countless successful people who find their own form of meditation. 

Since I gave birth people have asked me when I think I'll be ready for a second baby. My answer has been consistent: one and done! I always dreamt of having a ton of kids and Dennis definitely wants two but when I became a mom I realized fairly quickly that one baby is a lot of babies! How people do this more than once is beyond me. It's magical, motherhood. But it's also overwhelming, challenging, taxing and out right terrifying at times. So I decided; one is enough. Lea Luna is everything I could have ever dreamed of and more. But suddenly, just now, something shifted. As I woke up this morning and watching Luni try to stand up in her crib a very odd thought hit me: "She is growing so fast - I miss those tiny newborn days! I think... Maybe... I want to do this again". The thought stopped me in my tracks but I didn't tell anyone. I shook it off and went about my day. Then, just now, at dinner with our besties and my sister and my mom I said it out loud. "I think I just realized I want to have another baby. Not right now, but at some point". "OF COURSE!!!" was the resounding answer around the table. "Lunis needs a baby brother!" We laughed about it and on the walk home I decided, yes. It's not one and done. One more. Some day. A baby brother. Maybe. Well. As I stepped through the door at home - I got my period. For the first time since pre-pregnancy! It's been one year and three months since my last moon... Since before the conception of our little moonAnd here, now, with this realization, a new cycle begins. The universe speaks!!! Such magic. So. Let's see what the future will bring #yogaeverydamnday - Day 15 #yogagirlchallenge #yoga #motherhood #lealuna #universe #signs #moon
