I may be young, but I’m not stupid.

I realize that some of you are fighting an upstream battle. You are breaking old habits and making new ones. You are fighting the stereotypes that have been with you for years. This whole “health kick” has put a little kink in your normal life and quite frankly, you’re wondering how you are going to maintain it.

You maintain your new life by transforming your mind: You have a new normal.

Your New Normal: www.claresmith.me

The earlier you accept this, the less resistance you’ll have to it.

Once you realize that things like this will always be a part of your life…

♦ Enacting self control at the dessert table

♦ Juggling activities to fit in exercise

♦ Choosing to say “no” when others say “yes”

♦ Keeping “What’s healthiest for me” in the back of your head

Accept it. Don’t resist it. The quicker you accept it, the quicker others will be to accept it too. But if you are in a new season of  life and haven’t always lived this way then this is going to be a struggle. You are going to be fighting old habits and your natural tendency will be to go back to the old normal.

But I’ve got good news.

Your new normal also looks like this:

♦ More energy

♦ Smaller clothing

♦ Less medications

♦ Toned body

♦ Self-control

♦ Freedom

It’s a trade-off. Change your mentality. It’s all good. It’s YOUR new normal.



“You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;  to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:20
