Reflecting on my fitness journey and the struggles I had at the beginning and how many times I begin and stopped. Really the the number is, I don’t know but I can say it was greater than 20. Yes that many and why? It took me a long while to understand me and why I would stop. The BIGGEST reason and it was only one, the others were just excuses to satisfy myself.
The BIGGEST REASON, I was not accepting me for me for the now. I was not happy with myself, how I look and how I felt and just kept thinking I don’t like me. I was not accepting myself for where I was and the person I was at that time. When I begin to accept me just as I was and looking at myself loving me for me just as I was but willing to adjust you know begin tweaking me. Yes, accepting myself I was able to see what changes I wanted to do and those I could implement immediately, plans, writing it down, staying focus. I had to accept the current me to grow into the me I wanted to be.
But this applies to not just fitness journey, it applies to any journey. So today if you’re wanting change and keep stopping to start over again, I ask you to STOP the stopping. I want you to ACCEPT YOU just as you are right now, love you. Now the changes you want, the goals, write them down, and every day evaluate, tweak but continue to ACCEPT YOU and keep moving toward those goals.
