There is one phrase that I tell myself everyday to continuously push myself. "I can do hard things" Starting next week, I will be part of a beta test group for following a high fat-low carb diet and intermittent fasting. This will be a 12 week journey of balancing my hormones, fueling my body appropriately, and learning more about how my body works. Routine blood work and lab tests are completed throughout the process to monitor and establish the positive effects HFLC/IF has on our bodies. To say this is outside of my comfort zone is an understatement, but I know that I. Can. Do. Hard. Things. I get to work with a Celebrity Trainer, a nutrition expert, a Doctor, and a Mom of four to get educated behind the science and health reasons to eat this way. I will be following a customizable meal plan and workout schedule, with a few live workouts in the group! I promise to share this journey with you all, in hopes to educate others on the importance of stepping outside of your comfort zone and challenging yourself. Its about to be a wild ride 🤘
Today's workout consisted of a lot of sweating, a bunch of reasons as to why I could just stop there, and a lot of modified moves, but the most important part of the workout was that I didn't stop. . I came up with a million and one reasons why I could, why it would be okay, why no one but Allison and Zara would know the truth, and then I thought about why I started working out in the first place. . I started because I wanted to be the best version of me that I can be. . That's what kept me going. I knew if I was willing to give up without finishing only a 30 minute workout that I wasn't near the best version of me that I could be. . So I pushed past the mental barriers, I modified the moves that were to hard, and I finished strong!
So you say you don’t have ‘time’ to workout? Let’s rephrase that to... “I choose not to make myself a priority 2% of my day”. When you change the wording, it makes you think a little more, huh? 30 minutes is only 2% of your day. It’s not that you don’t have the time, it’s about how you’re spending that time. #truthbomb
Juice shops and work vibes. 💗 . Getting ready for my next fitness group that is going to kick off after Thankgiving (because we can all use a little fitness after stuffing ourselves with turkey) and getting in the spirit for my second annual free Christmas fitness group! . I love that this is work for me! . Spending days where ever I feel as long as i can find some Wi-Fi and just building a community that support fitness, nutrition, self love, and empowered women. . Feeling pretty blessed right now. Thank you universe!
