Have you ever said "I can't" all the time you don't even realize you're saying it?
This photo is literally throwing every "I can't" I've said about my body and my mindset in the last 8 months or so (since having my gallbladder removed) out the window. I had so many things come up with my health in the last couple of years, one of the best being able to get pregnant, and have Everly. But for the most part I have struggled with illness, broken/sprained body parts, battling depression, PCOS symptom flare ups, and etc. I forgot what it was like to TRUST my body. I wanted to take care of it from the inside but was lacking one key factor; BELIEF IN MY BODY'S CAPABILITIES. I was so fucking focused on what I was told my body couldn't do, I lost sight of what it could do. I hadn't even realized it. 🤦🏻♀️ I was lacking this crucial thing in my heart and my mind. I believed my body was going to fail me one way or another, so why give it my all? 🤷🏻♀️ I was just made this way and I got dealt a bad hand. Right? WRONG. My body is STRONG. 💪🏼 My body does miraculous things for me everyday, that I can honestly say I take for granted at times. So tonight, as I laid on the couch watching Netflix 👀, struggling to get off the couch (not physically but mentally) I realized, change will only happen if I do. If I really have had this major mindset shift, then I have to get up, press play, and crush my workout! 👊🏼💥💥💥 Was I able to do every exercise? No. Did I modify the best I could? 🙋🏻 HELL YEAH. And am I photographed in the picture above holding a squat with a sprained knee? YES. This photo doesn't represent great form, or a really low squat, it represents (in my opinion) me TACKLING my mindset, putting in the work, and truly seeking change for my health from the inside out. I am making the shift. Period. Are you gonna do this with me and make the shift too? Day 10 ✅
