I love to celebrate Moms, so for Mother’s Day I did a session giveaway and this beautiful duo won. There was so many amazing moments captured between them. In the end, I was left with something invaluable as well.
I’ve been struggling with incorporating exercise since I’ve become a mother. It’s important to me, but the crazy kiddo schedules and sleep deprivation, have seriously kicked my butt. I’ve been slowly getting back at it but the comparison game I was playing in my head was getting the best of me. I wasn’t comparing myself to other people, but comparing myself to me. A former me. A different me. A non-parent me. A me that no longer existed. A me that was previously a gym rat, so I was becoming frustrated when I couldn’t run as far or as fast as I use to. I was expressing this to my client’s husband as he is a running coach and has a pod cast called Diz Runs Radio and he said this is something he hears often. People comparing themselves to where they use to be instead of looking at where they are now and improving their present state. This shift in thinking has been paramount to me moving forward with my relationship with exercise. Thanks @dizruns for our chat ... it has helped tremendously! Anyone else struggle with the comparison game?
