As I make a total bloody commitment to making sure I better myself in all eight pathways of my life, I sat down and reflected on 2018 on New Year’s Eve.

Whilst everyone was out partying and I was being decidedly boring, I asked myself the questions as I rapidly journaled away

What was I proud of?

What worked, what didn’t?

Who do I want to become in 2018?

…. and a plethora of other questions to get me soul searching and looking honestly at my life.

This is the shit I preach all day long and as I sat there and looked at my 7 pathways, I realized I’d let my game go down in a few of my pathways. But I hadn’t really realized it until I starred at it right in front of me in black and white.

The 8 pathways to success are physical, spiritual, mental, social, charitable, financial, vocational and emotional. And something I have always done is to create goals in all 8 areas and commit to growth in all areas as I know the by-product of this is EXTRA freaking happiness in life. It so goes damn EXTRA.

Somewhere in between having a baby and the year ending, I’d become less goal focussed and realized there was a couple of pathways that I wasn’t happy with- physical being on of them.

Yes, yes, I just had a baby but it was no excuse.

I would writhe and squirm at the idea of getting back into a routine as this has always been my hardest pathway to stick to. It was a relationship that had highs and lows and periods of commitments and sometimes none whatsoever. In terms of my eating, I am vegan & pretty healthy but I’d fallen down a bit of a rabbit hole since breastfeeding and craving sweet stuff all the time so I knew that I was time to fix up and look sharp.

The thing is I was super happy with my financial and vocational because I am living my purpose and am so disciplined with these pathways. they are inbuilt automatic habits that I love. I have never ever found that with my physical pathway in particular. It has always felt arduous and beocming the gym bunny was never something that felt natural to me.

Last year, I was going personal training twice a week and I felt fucking fantastic because I paid for the ACCOUNTABILITY. That’s why coaches are so damn powerful. if anything, when you invest in something, it’s scientifically proven that we behave differently toward it.

My brain and energy were at it’s highest when I was committed to my physical pathway. Truth be told, I have been using my baby as an excuse and also the fact that I lose weight pretty quickly after birth due to breastfeeding. so it can be easy for me to AVOID exercising as weight loss wouldn’t be my goal. I know that is probably the converse for most postnatal mothers, but I’ve always lost weight very easily and if anything, I’ve ended up way to skinny.

Although I have noticed this time, that my tummy is a different shape to what it was, I also don’t really care about it al that much right now as I am in no desired state to worry about that or get panicked about it. I just have learned to love self at a different level over the last year or so and know that once I give it attention, it will be more ab-alicious.

Anyways, I digress, so I looked at my pathways and realized the commitment to my PHYSICAL body was necessary. It was almost screaming at me for my journal. That god damn VICE of mine.

The reality is, I work from the computer, from my home office and a week could EASILY go by and if my FITBIT were to speak, it would be mortified to announce that I’d barely managed 100 steps in a day. Sometimes the most I would in terms of leaving the premises was do the school run and that was a drive so I can’t even walk that.

I felt a little disgusted with myself. My body is my fucking temple and I can’t do my big work on this planet unless it has the energy to do it. The least I can do is take my bones for a god damn walk instead of remain hibernated in my confines of my office, building funnels and writing content…

On several occasions when journalling, I have always thought I’d love to be the woman who drinks fresh juices every day… I LOVE juices. there is something so cathartic about consuming a freshly pressed juice.

When I looked into juice subscriptions and tallied monthly cost, I felt it be a little ridiculous and realized I could buy a fancy cold press juicer and do it myself instead of being a lazy mofo. I love juices but not to the sum of £500 a month. Maybe when I am a millionaire but certainly not now. I’m at home, so NO excuses. Plus, Rich wants to make our own nut milk too so the juicer will be a worthwhile investment

So I wake up this morning, the first day of the year, after the ROUGHEST night with Amira who for some unbeknown reason, woke up at every god damn hour crying, bless her,

I woke up with a fuzzy head without a hangover to blame. Bollocks.

I had set my alarm to get up early to start my morning ritual before the kids woke up because for the last few weeks, I hadn’t got the time to have some peace by myself in the morning and when I looked back on last year, pre-baby, that was my sacred time.

And as the alarm went off, it started. the barrage of excuses in my head.. ‘OH I am so fucking tired. my throat is sore’.. and could feel the wave of EXCUSES, the mind chatter coming in.. all the opporunities to just lay there and do sweet FA,

In the end, I was s bored of listening to my own brain, I hauled my body up, put the cuppa on and starting journaling. FIT BIT went on. I was feeling quite tired but we went out for a walk so I could clock some FIT BIT mileage and although freezing, I was proud to have done it and then I came home and fell asleep!! Mama needed a nap.

When i woke up, I could feel the excuses coming in again.

NO NOOR you cannot give up on day one. I berrated myself.

It was like two sides of my brain were having a domestic arguing with each other. Which they are. Your mind is made up of two parts, one that wants you to be the best badass version of yourself and the side that wants to sit down and eat Oreos all day. It’s a god damn battle.

I kept saying…what would the best version Noor do? The million dollar version of Noor.

She would get the fuck up and make a juice to make her feel better!!! So I did and then I told the girls we would a workout video together!! They loved the idea so I couldn’t let them down Now. I WAS IN.

Fast forward…

I’m writing this, rather sweaty but feeling SOOO brilliant having completed a dance workout with my girls, who had so much fun!! I had combined present and fun time with them (one of my other goals) with working out.

Day one of 2019 and I’ve managed to fulfill all MY physical goals for the day. I’m feeling like a motherfucking superstar. and let’s be honest, making a carrot juice and doing some exercise isn’t hard. It’s the discipline of OVERCOMING the mind chatter and bull shit stories is the hard part. and I almost gave up.

It takes DISCIPLINE to do it. so many moments today, I could have easily not juiced, not worked out, not gone out and not not not. I honestly am not feeling 100% (my immune system took a battering after I consumed my body weight in prosecco a few nights before) so I could have used that as an excuse.

There is always a chance to ‘NOT,’ but the most successful people I know.. they make their disciplines NON-negotiable. I’ve also committed to daily content and accountability. sharing my journey with you guys so that it keeps me accountable to whoever the fuck decides to read this because I know the first 3 weeks of commitment will always be the hardest.

There is always an opportunity to self-sabotage, to NOT do that which you want because it is easier and more comfortable. But you will never grow if you say in that lane. It took me many uncomfortable moments to build m Amazon business, then my coaching business. Every time I’ve launched, there are voices saying .. ” oh maybe not” or ” will this work’. But I wouldnt have a muli-sixf figure business if I let the voices win all the bloody time.

It takes 3 weeks to create new habits and one of my commitments is from Monday- Friday- NON-negotiable, some sort of exercise. But it has to be for me, something I love and enjoy.

So I set myself up for success. This is the trick.

I love HOT yoga, I love swimming and I love dancing. So I’ve mapped out where I can do these and which days. I’ve always made the decision to look at what usually stops me sticking to stuff. Firstly, I get bored and love variety so have decided to not do month by month contracts at gyms so I can change them throughout the year so it doesn’t get samey for me. I’ve picked classes that are fun and I will only do one of those things per week so once again, it keeps it fun.

So it wrote this for you all mofo’s that perhaps already on day one of the years, felt like giving up- it is our human nature, but there is a badass version of you that won’t let you give up and it’s important to listen to her.

Clear the noise and listen to her. Part of manifesting your dream life is taking on the identity of someone who WILL do it. So I know someone in my mind who is my physical inspiration in terms of her commitment to her physical body. She is also multi-millionaire so she is an incredible role model and a mother to two girls, so no excuses for me.

When you go to question your goals or whether you should do them, think of someone who really inspires you and ask- What the fuck would they do this moment….?

Then do that.

Happy day one 2019 people.

Love Noor
