Lately I have felt a deep responsibility to share my journey with others....the messy parts, the successful parts and everything in between....in hopes it makes a difference for just one person.
So, as my abs are seizing up this evening, I’ve been in reflection mode. Here are a few thoughts for whoever may need to hear them and for whatever they’re worth...
Despite hitting an energy wall the last several afternoons before gym time, I still showed up today. I finished the workout. And then I did a little more. And then I asked for onnnnnnee more ab exercise ☝🏼🙄😩
🎃 Set goals. Specific ones. I set goals that will somehow increase my self worth, expand or grow my abilities and that I am proud of - the kind I get excited to share. Hint, hint: these are no longer goals measured in pounds or inches as I naively made in the beginning. In fact, I’ll share my newest goal: unassisted pull-up 😳
👻 Compete with yourself every day. Thats what it’s always been about. Not being the best compared to others, just being the best version of myself. I’ve committed I’m not going to stop when it hurts, only when it’s done. And in the meantime, I plan to beat myself over and over again.
🎃 I preach accountability everyday and who knows where I would be without it and the people who enforce it with me, but it still has to start on the inside. These partners are great, but ultimately, you have to push yourself, no one can do it for you and no one will.
👻 Some days are harder than others. Some days actually really suck - mentally, physically, emotionally. Just remember, it’s what we can endure that defines who we become. Find the triumph - in the struggles, in the pain, in the belief in yourself. ❤️😘✌🏼
