Pushing Play Today was and Beginning to Be Challenging

I  am truly a at home fitness person for so many reasons.  If you’ve read previous post you’d know my reasons.  I don’t swipe out any one who goes to the gym, this at one time was a favorite of. Mine and honestly there are days I miss the gym and then I remember my why.

I stream my workouts and YES I love BOD.  I also have a calendar to follow with the greater than 700 workouts but that number has increased (probably need to check my own accuracy).  I have to push play and with the COVID19 right now it’s challenging me to push play.  I had to evaluate and realize I was following all the. News about it and I as truthfully as the news is, it can also be just as depressing.  I had to challenge my NOW new challenger.

How, well I’m up on the news and I must be as a healthcare worker and an essential person as I am now known, but not to overwhelm myself.  I must continue to use all the precautions and social distancing and as told in childhood – “JUST FOLLOW THE RULES”. This is one of times not to deviate from the rules and express a different opinion (which would be irrational and unsafe)

I know I’m pushing harder in all my workouts once I begin, so that few minutes of meditation after listening to a podcast or reading PD (personal development)  has helped me SO MUCH. Also my prayers.  I include the entire country / world in my daily Rosary prayers .

Today I’m just sharing a challenge and how I’m pushing through.  Please share your challenge and means of pushing through.  To this challenge and overcoming it in a POSITIVE Outcome.

Is it POWER or STRENGTH or Both

There are days I get confused myself with power and strength.  With that said I’ve come to my conclusion and it works for me.

It takes both power and strength to endure on my path.  I need the strength for lifting and push through on a challenging workout as this also applies to challenges in life.  I also need the strength to be patient with my self and again sometimes in life challenges  oh in so many ways in life challenges.

I need the power to increase my weights and actually lift, because if I cant lift then why would I increase. I need the power to roll out of bed on those 3 AM mornings.

I definitely need both the power and strength in my mindset. Being honest with myself I have to change my mindset sometimes in my goals because the fear is there and that negative doubting voice is also there.  It takes power and strength to push through that fear and both to shut up that negative voice.

I guess it is safe to say whatever applies to an individual,  for me I have to say both.  What applies to you? Which ever make this week and this to come of both POWER and STRENGTH.
