Wants You to BecomeYOUR FITTEST FUTURE SELFAdopting a healthier lifestyle often feels overwhelming and draining — like a chore. The trick to sustaining a lifestyle change long term is reframing the creation of your health mixes.In YOUR FITTEST FUTURE SELF, author and fitness expert Kathleen Trotter advises readers to think of creating mixes like going on an adventure or figuring out a puzzle rather than as something overwhelming, exhausting, or “yet another obligation.” Kathleen encourages readers to stop thinking of “past health experiences” as something to be frustrated about. Past experiences are data — information to be learned from. Her advice is that if you know an element of a diet or a type of workout absolutely didn’t work for you, don’t add that element to your mix. If you loved a particular element of a diet or a past activity — playing a sport or dancing at clubs — consider joining a team or taking dance classes. Learn from your past experiences so you can create, now, a mix that suits you, leading to that fitter self. Have fun learning about yourself and if, at first, the pieces don’t fit together, try to figure out why and try again. You can do this! Drive the bus of your own life instead of letting the bus drive you. Lean-in to your health and start working for what you want. Your fittest future self is waiting — get excited!
