I'm on day 13 into a 30 day challenge I created for myself - I'm definitely a perfectionist that is determined to OVERCOME - It's time to turn those so called "flaws" and weaknesses and just ADMIT to them. Then I can realize that maybe they are actually personal strengths.
Confessions of a Health Coach
On a side note how do you like this? When was the last time you got out the sidewalk chalk? I've been doing a new workout program and instead of using the agility markers I've been drawing them on the sidewalk and writing my daily mantras out there too! Its fun to rise with the sun -if I get out there at 5:30 - I'm doing by 6 and then I get to LITERALLY rise with the sun -
I think as a health and fitness coach people think I have "it all figured out" - ha BUUUTT its so far from the truth - can we discuss the fact that I just melted my peanut butter jars because I turned on the wrong burner? ha! Real life oopsies just happen.
or how about the fact that I STILL get jacked up about CLOSE parking spots... (I mean I "should" be focused on getting my steps in right?
or how about this post about being an introvert...
"Coach confessions Day 11/30
Weeellll I hope this confession doesn't get me in trouble!
Being in bigger groups is not my favorite and can even be anxiety producing for me. I'm about the biggest extroverted introvert there is and I'm also DEFINITELY an empath. I am one that usually has a wall up at least a bit until I get to know you...(then you may be blessed with a gangsta rap jam session of mine or talk your ear off)
This is ESPECIALLY true when it comes to girls. Let's face it...there can be unnecessary drama and that just ISN'T my style (avoid that ish at all cost)
SO it maaayy seem crazy to you that I recently stayed with 9 girls ACROSS the country... and actually felt COMFORTABLE and at ease.
When you surround yourself with positive and empowering people that are just THERE for you and get you it's just different. (And nooooo we aren't all fakey happy full of 🌈🌈🌞🌞🦄🦋🦋🦋) let's be real.
Life is full of 🖕👎💣💨
What's my point? Find the people that
.embrace your weirdness.
.want to be better with You.
.will push you to go beyond your comfort zone (cough cough bourbon street)
.& SHOW UP on the days to celebrate and the days you don't feel like anything but staying in bed with a pint.
If THAT is something you don't have in your life right now... come join our tribe. But ONLY if you have a freak flag."
A confession about missing the gym and my insecurities...
"Coach confessions Day 10/30
I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks.
In fact I havent done a workout longer than 35 minutes in over a month.
In the past I would have wigged out. "Omg I havent ran today so tomorrow I'll probably lose ALLLL my fitness and tomorrow I'll wake up obese!" Ridiculous right? But THOSE were some of the thoughts that started to creep in a few years ago. I thought home workouts were for dweebs and didn't count as a real workout. I hated lifting because it made to too sore to run. Oh and I ALSO thought a treat meal had to be compensated by an extra few miles or HARD AF run the following day. I was basing my worth on miles logged.
Girl I hear You. And those voices are wwwroooonnnggg.
You are freaking WORTHY of happiness. You don't need to feel guilty about enjoying yourself and a day off of running will actually make you stronger.
I'm sooooooooo not perfect and believe me that anxiety struggles do come around at times. But I'm learning that I'm freaking strong enough to overcome. Stop basing your worth on what you do...and focus on who you are and what you want to become. I can be a warrior. 💪
You are too."
