I'm sitting here smiling about you. I saw your Facebook or Instagram post roll by and it reminded me of you.
I'm smiling because, see, I know what you want. I know you have this goal. It's so big you haven't spoken it yet. You think people in your life won't understand.
So you just keep quiet.
But you keep grinding. Day after day. And I know what you are after.
I look forward to the day the world gets to feel the warmth of that fire that you are keeping to yourself.
Are you struggling to stick to a goal every year?
If so, sit for a minute and really think. Do you want being physically fit and healthy to be what you value? Beyond your goal weight or goal ‘look’, is it a value you feel import to instill in your children?
This is a common question I get from my online clients and those that purchase my downloadable plans from this website.
“Am I lifting enough weight to reach my goal?”
“What does lifting heavy mean?”
"How Do I Know if I’m Lifting Heavy Enough?"
When it comes to inspiring anyone to start, own, or continue a fitness journey, the notorious transformation photo is often used on social media.
Recently, however, I’ve read fitness professionals saying that transformation photos are toxic. They say that the pictures leave out the struggle, don’t tell enough of the story, or make others feel worse about themselves and make them feel shameful.
AS SOMEONE WITH A TRANSFORMATION TO SHARE, I HAD TO WEIGH IN ON THE ISSUE.
I read a blog the other day that really irked me to my core. Maybe it bothered me because I get a lot of “mommy guilt” questions from followers. Maybe it bothered me because I deal with a lot of women that really want more for themselves and people in their life push back. I feel compelled to address my thoughts.
It’s a season, and oh so worth it. But let’s be real…. it’s time to get back into routine and feeling in control of your choices again. BACK ON TRACK is where you feel the best and thrive the most.
After being stuck a few times myself, and also successfully propelling myself forward, I’ve come up with a short list of tips to help you to get out of your own way.
If you’re like the person described above, it’s likely you’re the most confident you’ve ever been. You are more secure in who you are, and that has nothing to do with what you look like. There’s a new you that’s looking for new friends that “get it”.
