Day 17 of #ChristiMakesTheShift and I was hit hard with resistance today. Headache and sore throat hit me yesterday like a ton of bricks so I nourished my body with superfoods, greens, a detox tea and some thieves essential oil. All night I was up and down. I had a fever so the sweat woke me. Then one loan mosquito made it into our room and I was attacked with bites. Never underestimate the work one mosquito can do. So when 5am came I really was not doing well. Scratchy soar throat, and exhaustion made it really really difficult to push through.
I have made a commitment though.
Most would say "listen to your body", "rest", "make up for it tomorrow". NOPE, not my support system. They said:
"you are NOT sick"
"your throat feels like gold"
"you got this"
I am so grateful for them.
So that is what I told myself, and you know what? I made it. I pushed harder than I have before.
Yes I cried.
Yes I got mad.
Yes it was hard.
But I showed up anyway. Because if there is one thing I know for certain:
Any time I set ANY goal, resistance will be there tapping me on the shoulder saying I can't do it. I am stronger than resistance. If I don't show up for hard, then hard will win every time. Life is hard, but life is beautiful and every bit of hard is worth it. 3 workouts left in round one and nothing but death will stop me!
