Can we just take a moment here? Life definitely throws us obstacles that can be out of our control, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find a way to flow with it.

When we come to uncharted or unfamiliar territory, like fitness, that may or may not have been a major staple in our life, it can feel a bit intimidating…and that’s okay! But what’s not okay is underestimating your capabilities. The reality is we can’t all be rockstars at everything. And also…we won’t like or love everything we do! We are human! We have our preferences. But the most important thing is to get moving and find what you love! Never let the fear of failing or being vulnerable stop you from growing and learning.

Don’t compare your journey to anyone else’s. Strengthen your strengths, and use them to empower you, but also challenge yourself and seek growth. That’s what life is about. And I must say that victories from challenges are definitely the sweetest!

Stop worrying about what can go wrong, and remember why you are excited about your fitness goal…and keep asking yourself multiple questions as to why that goal is so exciting and important to you…

For example
Why do I want to be more active?
Because I want more energy in my day!

Why do I want more energy in my day?
Because I want to be more productive in my day!

Why do I want to be more productive in my day?
Because I want more time for my family!

Why do you want more time for family?
Because they mean everything to me, and I want to be able to enjoy all our nights together and run around with the kids!

…I think you get the picture 😉 Your fitness goals are more than aesthetics. It’s about living a quality life that you’re more than capable of. It’s about enjoying life to the fullest! Take the first step and then figure it out along the way! I urge you not to take yourself out of the game before you get in it! Who cares if you don’t know how you’re going to get there?! If all you care is that you get to your destination, then all that matters is you’re committed to you, and figuring it out! Now go get it! 💪🏽
