When you choose to move because you’re worth it, It’s the best use of our physical temple, regardless of our size, or scale weight, embracing a mindset that chooses movement because you can instead of you have to, will empower you to move more often, in all the seasons of life, and reap the benefits of that all year.
Not for a size, or to try and look like the cover models, but because you’re worth it.
If you have big goals for yourself this year, you’re worth investing into them and going after them. Hire someone to help you. You’re investing in LEARNING AND COMMITTING to yourself. That will pay you back for years to come. My greatest success as a trainer is when my client doesn’t need me anymore! And they’re greatest success comes from knowing progress not perfection is worth the daily grind.
Like how you are right now. It’s so enough, don’t you know how enough you are?
If you wear your husband’s baggy t-shirt to the gym, who cares, I’ve been there! Or if you’re still in maternity pants, or even two sports bras, yep been there too. It’s fine. Thankfully I choose not to stay there, and you don’t have to either.
If you’ve been super fit in the past and struggle to get going again because you keep thinking how far you have to go. That girl is still worth it. Make her proud. Focus on where you’re going now not where you’ve been, that’s not serving you. You’re worth the energy now, stop living in lack from a place you can’t see anymore, and create a new place.
You’re enough with a slow mile, bad squat form, or modified wall push ups (we can fix all those things).
There is a version of you that’s your best self. Find her, spend your energy looking at her, not comparing your current to someone else. See YOU with a faster mile. Firmer arms. And better squat form. And do what you need to be her.
As milspos, we all need to remember who we are and what we have overcome! We are the women who solo parent for months at at time. Move across the country often and start everything all over. That woman is enough to overcome any reason why she thinks she can’t start, that she isn’t doing enough, or won’t ever be where she wants to be.
You have the time.
Listen to me.
You have time.
When we fall victim to the idea that we don’t have time. Really we are saying, “I don’t have time for myself, but have time for everything and everyone else.” That’s easy to do as a military spouse.
I know for me, my husband is gone a lot, I’m always juggling the kids, and it’s hard to say, “Now that you’re home, it’s time for me to have time for myself,” and head for the gym or out for a run. But I am so much better for them when I do.
I finally realized it wasn’t always worth it to go for the perfect body or scale weight, but it was always worth it for the break, time for not thinking about anyone else but myself, an escape from the thoughts that wore me down. So I was re-energized to get back to my busy life.
Making time for yourself isn’t selfish, its means “me too”!
When my clients exercise consistently, they tell me it’s the clarity and restored perspective, the time for self it provides that keeps them going.
I dare you to get to a place this year that says—- I gotta go workout.
Time isn’t really the reason, it’s your decision that you’re not worth the time. But you are.
Maybe this article wasn’t what you expected, but maybe it’s exactly what you needed to read.
The beauty of being an online trainer, I’m not there to force clients into choosing this growth. I set them on the path with a program to follow, it’s up to them to use it. It’s there to empower them to live a life that includes self care and self love.
So for a minute let me be your online trainer:
You are enough.
You are worth it.
You have the time.
Make 2019 the year you find your forever fit. I know you can!
Empowering you to LIVE #ALLiN
