"Your first thing you do during the day is the highest leveraged thing, by far, because it has the effect of setting your mind, and setting the context, for the rest of the day."
What's the first thing you do when you wake up each morning?
•Scars, stretch marks, saggy skin.
They have held me back in the past with chains so strong. Bc with them came shame, guilt, failure, and insecurity.
•Hard work, sweat, muscles, joy, accomplishment, discipline, pride, love.
That is what I cling to and work for every single day.
Behind this smile, is a young woman who wanted nothing more than to be a mommy, and then hated they body it left her. GUILT. There is a newlywed who hated her husband seeing her body, bc it's not the same. SHAME. There is a young woman searching for clothes that didn't show the least bit of pudge, and could hide all of her flaws. INSECURITY. There is a patient who is in the hospital yet again, bc all she wanted to do was eat healthy, but her body won't allow that. FAILURE.
But now, oh but now that smile shows a young mom who tries harder every day to be the mom her girls want to grow up to be. JOY. There is a woman who decided to try something that could change her life, and has stuck to it even during times when she didn't want to. DISCIPLINE. There is a wife who has worked on her inner belief and self love, so she can give herself fully to her husband. LOVE. There is a coach who will do whatever it takes to work through barriers, and provide the support and accountability her ladies need...bc that is what she needed. HARD WORK. There is a woman who looks at those stretch marks and scars, and knows she is a fighter. PRIDE. There is someone who wakes up early to take care of herself, and has transformed her body and her life. ACCOMPLISHMENT. And there is someone who once hated to exercise, but now craves that SWEAT and fights for those MUSCLES.
Just know this...it doesn't come easy. It takes grit! But it's possible. It's possible to change your mindset, your life, and your body. It's not about achieving perfection...just look at me! Nowhere close, and a lot of work left to do. It's about achieving greatness, the greatness that is inside of you waiting to be brought out.
