Are You Still Waiting For Tomorrow?

I’m here to break the bad news. Tomorrow never comes.

Thomas Jefferson said “Never put off tomorrow what you can do today”. He was a busy guy so he probably knew what he was talking about.

My own father was fond of saying to me: DIN: Do. It. Now. Why? Because as a teenager I was good at putting things off until they became a huge task that I absolutely dreaded doing. It might have applied to chores and homework then, but now it applies to chores, to-do lists, health, etc.

Are you eating that second helping of dinner or skipping a workout, knowing you shouldn’t but just telling yourself you’ll start again tomorrow? Tomorrow comes and you find yourself having the same internal dialogue all over again.

When you’re used to having those same conversations with yourself they can be tough to break. It becomes a rut you find yourself in. Sometimes it’s as simple as changing the way you talk to yourself.

If you’re looking to change something you need to start today. So what if you had a donut for breakfast? Don’t let that stop you from improving your diet for the rest of the day. So what if you skipped your early morning workout? Don’t guilt yourself so much that you don’t bother to exercise later on.

If you’re at the beginning of your fitness journey then need to start small anyway. The donut for breakfast is fine for now. Work on a healthy habit today that you can do for the rest of the week. Start with something easy like drinking 8 glasses of water in a day. Once that’s something that you’re doing on an ongoing basis you can begin to work on whatever else you know needs work, like improving your breakfasts. Start small but start today.

If you’ve been on the fitness bandwagon for a while you have your own unique set of needs. Sometimes, those who have already accomplished some of their fitness goals can really guilt themselves when they’re not doing what they know they should. Stop being so hard on yourself! We’re all human! We slip up, make mistakes, give in to temptation from time to time. There’s no need to berate yourself! I’ve been guilty of this one myself and it’s something I’m always working on. But rather than make yourself feel guilty and then say you’ll start the day over tomorrow, instead acknowledge that you skimped on that workout, ate too many cookies and tell yourself that it’s ok, it’s not the end of the world. But don’t let it sink you into a pattern for the rest of the day. Instead take the rest of the day to really savour your food or work harder during your workout. (If you missed my post on Mindful Eating you can catchup here: .

It’s important to be aware of how you talk to yourself. Sometimes the negative self talk just encourages you to follow that wait-until-tomorrow pattern that can be so paralyzing.

Talk to yourself the way you deserve! Be positive! Smile! Instead of saying “you suck” because you ate that donut, tell yourself that “you’re amazing”!

Go to bed then knowing that not only was today a great day, but tomorrow is just going to build on it!

Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.
