ARE YOU ON MY MAILING LIST? IF NOT, GET ON IT!
On top of this blog, I write a newsletter every Thursday to all the peeps on my mailing list. Here is an example of one I did yesterday! Sign up to get on and get FREE access to my group and my 30 page FREE EBook!!
I want to give you some words of encouragement, because I definitely needed to hear this myself today as well. I know this working out thing may feel like a daunting task, but don't let it. Don't let your fear take you away from your goals. After I thought about it...I went in and CRUSHED my cardio workout! That never happens with cardio ...LOL at least for me anyways! ;)
Our bodies are meant to move and we owe it to ourselves to be the best version we can be. When we are full of love and we have a cup that runs over, then we must share it. Our kids feel our love, we aren't so crazy anymore, because we have taken the time to care for ourselves.
I never in a million years thought I could do something like this, but I am. You have to put yourself out there and believe 100% you are capable and can achieve success and I know you can. I have no doubts...simple as that.
I was there before, I saw the daunting task in front of me - 60-70+ lbs. staring me in the face to lose, but you know what? You can stare at it and be more scared than ever to start or you can just acknowledge it, and work little by little to knock that number down into more manageable goals...Like 5-8 lbs. a month or whatever your goal is.
It can be done, you just have to stop getting overwhelmed by it. It can be scary if you ALLOW it to be, but if you stare at it, and stick with your guns that you can conquer it...believe me you will.
There are all kinds of fears out there, and self limiting ones are the worst. They hold you back, tell you that you can't do something, or simply flood you with anxiety and depression leaving you feeling simply hopeless. I felt like this when I started.
I hope you gain this little nugget from this newsletter:
That we are MORE than what other people think of us.
Let me say this, I don't want you to drown in those types of feelings (like I could have today, but decided not too). Instead I want you to embrace them and MOVE ON! Yes that is right, move on. The second I took charge of my life and stopped letting my "mean girl" rule me, was the second I said I was going to do it, and guess what? I haven't looked back since. So I am not going to let this mean girl take away my passion, my love for coaching, writing, and sharing my story.
So yeah, acknowledge your feelings, but don't let them control your life to make you unhappy, unhealthy, and miserable. I am telling you my friend, there is a better way.
Through health and fitness AND personal development. Don't say yeah right...don't say come on you can't be serious?!?! Because I am serious!!
Getting through today's workout was a challenge...believe me. I cried during it, I pushed hard, and got it all out, and I felt better for it. The feelings were less severe after the workout and after talking everything out...I felt a lot better. A LOT!!!
When I made exercise a part of my daily routine, I noticed day after day, I had more energy. I was no longer dragging...no longer tired all the time, and I started to feel alive again. I slept better and I got a lot more done around the house, which always makes you feel good right?
So my message to you, is that you need to stop listening to that mean girl inside your head or the one being nasty to you (in my case today). You know the one that says you can't achieve this, you have far to many pounds to lose, this would take you forever, what the heck are you thinking?? OR You mean I have to get up early to get my workout in - Why, my bed is so comfortable??
Yeah...all those "mean" thoughts are fears, self limiting beliefs, and doubts you have within yourself. So please, don't listen to them...choose a different voice. The voice of your after self, the one that wants to come alive, and the one that sees a bright big beautiful life out there. I know she/he is in there...I know you can find it...just listen my friend.
You will be amazed of how much more happier you can be if you just believe in yourself like the way I believe in you.
So tell me, what self limiting belief are you going to conquer this week? Which one are you going to be like ENOUGH is ENOUGH? Let me hear it, because the more you crush that mean girl voice, the less likely she will try to take over...this is how you get started....this is how I did it...I stopped listening and I started to tell it what was going to happen...that moment...I, the true and REAL me, was in charge again!!
Don't you want to be in charge?
Then let's do this!!
