Keepin it real here ya'll!! Before my workout today I was feeling unmotivated, uncomfortable, unhappy, upset in my mind and with my body, and exhausted!!
Unmotivated, uncomfortable, unhappy, and upset because I let things slip all of last week. I only got two of my six workouts in. I had good reason not to and my body needed the rest. But here's the thing being a sufferer of hashimotos means taking a break for even one week you gain a good 5 -10lbs. Ridiculous right?! But its truth! I was feeling frustrated and annoyed with the fact that those days of rest mean that I have to work hard to get back to where I was just a week ago. I'm exhausted to the point where I am falling asleep anywhere, anytime today. I know this is from my body recovering as all the stress from the last couple of months is being wiped away, but ya'll I am an insomniac! I don't sleep well ever so this is crazy! I was allowing these things to take me down, allowing me to stall and give my mind time to convince my body that I don't need to move it today, when that is exactly what my body needs.
And then with a little mustering of self discipline (and plugging into a community of women showing up and pushing play) I got it done! Downed that hustle juice and just did it. And yah know what, that workout has turned my day right around. Since getting it in I feel energized, lifted, fearless, worthy, unstoppable, and happier!! This is exactly why you will see me show up for my workouts every darn day! It is something that keeps me strong mentally. With a mind that naturally thinks negatively this is how I can work on bettering and keeping that happy positive mentality. I choose to combat my health whether it be mentally or physically through health and fitness. I choose to show up and push play to show myself that I am capable of doing the hard things in the hard days and that nothing not even my negative mindset can stop me!
We all do it, we all fall off the wagon once in a while and we OFTEN beat ourselves up for it. We tend to go back to the negative self talk, the feelings of unworthiness, that lack of confidence. And it's hard, some days harder than others. Believe me when I say I get it👇
