I just finished 45 minutes of Shaun T's dance party from Beachbody's The Rockin' Body series.
I'm feeling pretty motivated as I had a "pep talk," a virtual pep talk with somebody that I follow on Facebook (Stephanie Kathmann Fitness) . She's super fit and she's a Beachbody Coach and fitness trainer and she is very inspiring to me. What she had to say this morning was exactly what I needed to hear. It's hard to swallow but I needed to hear it.
Basically she just said that if you're not working hard like, it's not uncomfortable for you and you are not feeling sore, you are not discouraged because of how tough it is (exercise) then you're not doing it right. She said she didn't get to where she is by just being comfortable with what she's doing. She talked about a few exercise videos that she had done where she felt discouraged and she was pissed off because they were super hard for her (having to stop every couple minutes bc it was so intense), and she's pretty fit so she was wondering who on earth was able to complete that video bc "she would like to meet this person." Well, she stuck to it and she pushed through it and finished, only to come back to it again later, and she was able to complete the whole thing. So she ended up being the person she wanted to meet.
It was a very motivational vlog post, so i took it to heart today and over exaggerated my moves and worked hard. I want this. Im not gonna let myself get in the way of my weight loss goals. I have a lot of excuses and they just keep me in my comfort zone. I'm able to accomplish goals, but there is no wow factor involved. I want my future self to be wowed by my journey and accomplishments.
Anyway, I'm gonna try to link the video here so that anyone out there needing to hear it, the way i did, can. :)
One day at a time. One choice at a time. I can do all things in Christ who gives me strength.
