TMI alert! 🚨🚨🚨🚨 Scroll down if you object to women talking about Aunt Flo. ✌🏼👇🏼 I was on the struggle bus today!! Cramps had me wanting to stay in my recliner under a blanket watching This is Us eating alllllll the things!!! I wasn’t motivated, or motivating. I was feeling sorry for myself for not making biz progress as fast as I wanted to, not having a clean enough house, not having reached my fitness goals faster, having anxiety about all the made up scenarios in my head that COULD happen, but probably never will. And the cramps!!! Oh em geeeee, did I mention the cramps?! 😫
At some time point in the afternoon though, I forced myself to snap out of it for an hour and do my workout. I ate SOME of the things, but not ALL the things. It isn’t about being perfect or depriving myself. It’s about showing up even when I don’t feel like it. And all that progress I was upset about not having made yet? Not gonna happen by sitting around beating myself up. Had to lovingly tell myself to STFU and JUST FREAKING DO IT ALREADY!!! Be that person you want to be!
I did it though!! 57 days without missing a workout, I wasn’t going to mess that up without a REALLY good reason, and this wasn’t it. Lol.
I know it doesn’t sound like it in this post, but it was actually a really nice day with the kids! Just had some internal battles to win! 👊🏼
