A Shift for She Builds

It's been a while!  Hello.  I'm wondering if I should just reintroduce myself! Haha.  Hi there, I'm Aukele.  I started She Builds to help give women the framework to nail their business goals so that they could build a life they loved.  And yet, here I am reverting way way way back to things that need to be in place before you can truly live a life you love.

A Shift in She Builds

HEALTH

Yes.  I'm talking about your health. My health.  Health and well being is so important and vital to all of the hardwork that you put into building your business and living the life that you love.  If you aren't in good health, then you tell me how are you supposed to enjoy all of the fruits of your hard labor.

The thing for me was that I had a hard time finding a game plan that worked for me and was realistic.

A few factors that were barriers to working out at the gym: 

  1. My day job.
  2. Picking up and taking care of my daughter.
  3. FInding and paying extra for daycare while I workout.
  4. The time going to the gym would take out of the evening (traffic driving to the gym, working out, driving home, shower) to add onto nightly duties that include preparing my daughter's dinner, watching her while she eats, bathing her, spending quality time with her and putting her to bed.

So that was a definite NO!  Now I could have started walking, but living at the top of the hill - I had a really hard time swallowing that pill and wanted to ease more into walking than doing straight hills from the jump.

Lose lose.  So I gave up for a while to be honest.  Until a little fitspo from some Beachbody coaches and me finding out that Beachbody now has streaming ON DEMAND! Say what? Yeah, you read that right!!!  The thing I used to dislike most about Beachbody was that you would get motivated and pumped watching the informercials and then all that momentum is lost waiting for the dang DVDs to get shipped to your door.  Literally I was able to sign up with Beachbody on Demand (BOD) and start any program of my choosing that very day.  And we'll leave it at that for now.  Part 2 to come soon.

In closing - this is all to say that the lightbulb really went off in my head this past month - and for me, I've realized that before I even attempt to crush my business goals and what I truly want to accomplish with She Builds - I need to build that fit life first and get some things together!  

Today, what I really want you to takeaway from this is for you to take a look at all areas of your life and figure out what areas may need some "building" before (or as) you conquer those business goals.  Take some time to figure out your gameplan and get some SMART goals going for those areas in your life.

I'd love to know what areas you need to work on, so let me know in the comments below!
