I don’t care if it’s your 1st week or you’ve been working out for 10 years.....you still have those days where it’s just f*cklin hard. Days where you don’t want to be there. Days where you fail physically. Days where you are just exhausted. But when you push through on those days....you know you are on the right path.
As someone who suffered for years from low self esteem and poor body image, I know from experience how important this shift is. When I finally began to love who I am, accept the body that I was given and to be comfortable in my own skin did I finally see the changes that I had been wanting. I quit beating my body and punishing myself with exercise, I began feeding my body foods that promoted health and wellness because I now respected my body and wanted to keep it healthy and fit. i finally FELT what it felt like to be healthy from the INSIDE out! I stopped beating myself up and doubting myself and I gained confidence to pursue my dreams. I became comfortable in my own skin,and I finally understood that taking care of my body is the most important thing that I can do! I cannot be all that I was created to be if I do not LOVE myself enough to take care of the only body I will EVER be given! One life, One body. One chance.
I woke up sick, I’ve been in a funk basically all day, & I still can’t really get out of that negative head space. I took a bit of a mental health day today, which means I’m just doing anything that makes me feel even just a little bit better On the bright side, I’m training shoulders soon which gets me excited. It’s more “me time” that I get for myself So if you’re having one of those days.. I’m right there with you. It’s only temporary so we’re just going to keep truckin along, okay? Okay #keepyourheadup#youreabadass
“If your head is in the clouds, let your feet be in the dirt. It’s okay to feel your laughter and it’s okay to feel your hurt. It’s in the grit and grace where you will find your place. Under skies blue and grey, you are still well on your way.”
3 simple words 1 difficult task. Tonight, instead of dragging myself to a workout class when I'm already exhausted, you can find me in my sweats making pizza stuffed potatoes inspired by the @thereallife_rd + finishing The Ramblers
What does r&r look like for you?
