I have to be honest, I love streaming my workouts and YES I’m 95% Beachbody the other well that’s 3 % using a few YouTube workouts mostly boxing, the other 2% is me doing lunges, squats, treadmill, or spinning .
What I had to learn is regardless how others may rave about a workout program it just may not be the one for me. There has been a few streamed workouts I followed just because I was following the crowd, however I wasn’t impressed or having fun.
Most of all and so important if you’re not having fun and excited about the next workout regardless of the sore muscles, then it’s probably time to rethink it. Being impressed with workouts are important because for me it’s the challenge. But agin it has to be fun.
Okay back to following the crowd. I felt guilty quitting you know not like a complete failure but I did feel I’d failed who? Yeah you guessed it. I’d not failed myself or others I was failing to accept this program is not for me.
This is when I became aware if I love the program the benefits or so fulfilling. Now fulfilling just isn’t the scale victories. Remember the non scale victories are greater. The energy, the mindset, the inches, that joy oh this list is longer but I will stop here. When you enjoy your workouts you become dedicated. Now remember I am a Beachbody streamer so not all programs are for me and gosh it’s not the trainer, because all the trainers are AWESOME. Sometimes it’s the program so I’m erasing my feelings of guilt and if you’re with a streaming workout program and not satisfied as well as feeling guilty if you quit. STOP, it’s okay to switch just don’t stop working out and oh don’t jump to anything easy. Just do you. You’re BETTER when you do you.
How many times during a workout have you underestimated your strength just because you’ve become complacent. Well this was me last eve. I under estimated my capability in my workout. First to acknowledge I workout at home. This is the only way I’d be able to workout at least 4-6 days a week otherwise I would be at one. How do I know because I’ve been there. One thing I had to learn was how to eliminate excuses in my fitness journey and still I’m adjusting. So glad I was introduced to beachbody, the benefits, the nutritional meal plans (there is more than the delicious nutritional shakes). I usually what I call pre stage my workouts. In other words set the stage for the workout. I decided in “Back & Biceps” workout I would use 10,15,20 & 30 lb dumbbells. I knew I can always do a drop set. Not familiar with the term, well that’s when you start heavy for so many reps and if you lose form (without the correct form you just going through the motion), you decrease the weights and continue. Occasionally I have increased instead of decreasing.
This is my pre workout stage. Oh yeah I used the 10 lbs only once and in my rows I replaced the 30 lbs with……..
Yes 40 lbs. So stop second guessing your strength, you’re stronger in strength lifting than you think. You Got This
Did you know because every day I’m learning. I know a positive mindset assist so much in seeing and enjoying life to our utmost. But the mindset in pushing through and acquiring daily goals, yes this include working out and just life.
I began a new workout BOD and I knew it was high intensity and I as always do a quick usually 5 minutes meditation 🧘♀️. If you have to just modify do it focus on giving your 100. Was it a high intensity workout, Yes, but I pushed through and did not modify but I was soaked with sweat 😓 after the workout. I was proud of myself and the mindset. Not just for me but for You as well. Stop second guessing your capability and toss out those limiting thoughts and beliefs – just adjust for your 100 if necessary. Keep the mindset on a high, greater than 100 because your goals, my goals, our goals are waiting and a few have been waiting for awhile. It’s time we reached them and move to a higher goal.
That sounds so conflicting stop and start, but yes Please.
I say this for the females that don’t support each other on a fitness journey. I’ve recently read negative post on an individual I follow and I was blown away. Have I ever received negative posts for certain and I either respond positively (which is not always easy) or say nothing. This individual is sharing her journey and making changes and all so many can see is her current flaws and focus on that. REALLY, it’s about her, me and all the females on a fitness journey. It’s not easy but I will ask this – What Are You Doing? Is Your Life So Perfect? Do You Want or See ANY Change For Your Growth? What Journey DO You Need to Start (its okay that you’ve bashed someone else because me an so many others will be there to support you) WHY, because we love to empower those moving on in a positive direction making positive changes.
Today, if you are one that is bashing just STOP and START empowering. I’m done. To weeks of FEMALES EMPOWERING EACH OTHER.
