WHAT'S THE RUSH? I see alot of people rushing through everything in there life. They think if they dont do this or do that they will fail.
If you rush through everything most likely you make more mistakes than if you actually took your time and think about how to do it the best.
I also see people who rush to do something and than later they go " Damn I should have done this and done that". People think they are missing alot of things on life so they want to hurry up and catch up with others and the world. Which is really bad everyone is different and there life is also different.
I use to do this too, like when cryptocurrency was popping I was on it like everyone else . I was putting in money left and right. I was worried I would miss the change and I rushed and invested into things I had no clue about. Than what happened was I lost most of my money and I learned a big lesson.
Dont fall into the hype, research, take your time, ask others than have been in that field, and be patient.
I seen people who want to be successful fast so they start multiple companies and what happens is they completely fail. So dont rush take your time in what you want to do and do it the best.
I have cut back on my strength training sessions throughout the week, usually only about 3 days a week, and just kept up my cardio and generally active lifestyle the majority of everyday as per usual. The thing is, I’m finally realizing how much I loved lifting, and why I became passionate about working out once again by cutting back. Once I got in the habit of pushing myself harder on my training days, and giving it my all, I started to enjoy lifting again because I wasn’t stressed about trying to workout a specific set number of sessions for a set amount of time every week just so I could be “fit” to reach a goal that was unattainable for me if I wanted to be healthy the way I believe is best for me. Trying to mentally let myself actually enjoy what I love again is a constant struggle, but I’m going to start going after my instructor certification once again and I’m so happy about this because I needed to be in the right frame of mind to be able to help others want to be healthy and not just obsess about being healthy, but I had to get to that point myself first if I wanted to practice what I believed. Finally I’m getting there and I’m just so thrilled. Don’t give up working on yourself, you’re worth it. Keep going and keep pushing. You have the strength! I mean you gain some every time you work out... heh heh. :) :) ♀️️♀️.
So I was looking at some old pics and realized I’ve only been working out continually for 3 Months ️♀️ I thought It was 5 or 6 months
Anyways it’s crazy to see how far I came in almost 3 months! I put on over 40lbs when I started back working out my “1 Rep Max” on the bench was 155 and now it’s 260
Started at 155lbs and as of today around 195-198lbs Guys stay focused and keep punching!
Suns out, guns out!!! Working arms today for my final workout of the week and my final day of lower weights with higher reps.
This week has been a lot of reps with supersets and drop sets all mixed in which has been pretty fun building to over the last 3 weeks.
Next week I’ll be going back to heavier weights but am going to be slowing down the tempo dramatically, focusing on getting a good stretch and contraction during my reps
A lot of people wonder why I started NamaStay Sober being that I am not in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. But the fact of the matter is.. we are all recovering from something. When I was a younger, I thought I had it all figured out. I controlled food. I felt a sense of calmness when I “controlled” life with something as tangible and simple as what I ate, or didn’t eat.
I used to hate myself for having an eating disorder but the fact of the matter is had I not gone through that struggle, I wouldn’t be who I am today. Founding @namastaysober in memory of my friend that passed away from drug addiction gave me the ability to accept myself, flaws and all. Life is a journey of twist and turns that mold who we are; however, it is not the twist and turns which mold us, but rather, how we take and handle the twist and turns thrown at us. It was not until life threw me flat on my face that I truly discovered who I am and what I am capable of. We are all a perpetual work-in-progress. And the possibilities are endless. Embrace the breakdowns, surround yourself with people that lift you up when you are down and confront your struggles head on - because out of our darkest hours comes our greatest victories. #freedom#selfexpression#love#selfcare#namaste#beyou#loveyou#peaceofmind#joy#possibility#process#happiness#workinprogress#keeppushing#iloveyou#acceptance#peace#selfcaresunday#perfectlyimperfect#fuckfear
Progress pic to keep me accountable. Working hard on belly sculpting(is that a thing)?🤪
Looking to thin out my waist while trying to build abdominal wall muscle. I seem to go in stages. This week is abs. Eating as clean as possible as well. I’m down to 130lbs in the morning. The key here is consistency to not lose too much without putting on enough muscle to look like the ‘skinny girl’. Not my goal whatsoever. I’ve cut out ALL unhealthy foods this past week. Nothing fried, no processed foods, everything straight from the earth,(cept my beloved protein powders), which is why I don’t use any form of pre workout anymore. Far too many colors and such in there for me right now. I also cut out all refined sugars for now. The last thing to go was the teeny handful of dark chocolate chips I put in my protein balls. They need no sweetener whatsoever. The ingredients I use are far sweet enough naturally. A dash of stevia in my morning coffee satisfies any sugar craving for the entire day. #goals#gains#eatwell#eathealthy#fit#fitlife#fitforlife#fitmom#fitover40#fitover50#gym#gymlife#gymrat#body#bodybuilding#muscle#girlswholift#liftheavy#determination#motivation#hustle#grind#nevergiveup#keeppushing#abs#yougotthis
This came up in my Facebook memories from 2 years ago.
I tried to start my wellness journey so many times, but always found an excuse not to.
This is just some additional motivation to keep going. Just start. Make it a habit, and just do your best.
It took me 2 years to convince myself to start, and I'm so happy that I didn't delay my journey any longer. •
