In an attempt to not only share my highlights, but also when the struggle is real, lol, here is my first set of DL's yesterday where I was supposed to do 4 sets of 4. But called it quits after the second rep here when I strained the hell out of my hamstring (story of my mother frickin life). I'm good though. It's just really damn sore today. Pretty sure I would have torn it if I had tried to do another rep. So sometimes, you just gotta come back another day. Lol. We're playing the long game. #deadlift
8 weeks apart; 8 weeks into my #12weektransformation and I've just realised what a load of honking back-fat I had!! Unfortunately I'm taking a 2 week holiday now so the training is on hold, I'll be back to it in a couple of weeks and extending my training programme in to May to make up for it... I'm not gonna screw this one up!!
I was feeling so fake and disconnected with my business that I was avoiding it entirely. Instead of really digging into why what I CREATED wasn’t aligning with me, I looked at it as I didn’t have much control over it, “maybe this isn’t for me” “maybe I don’t have much to offer to this field” AND the best one yet, “I just hate social media” (while I am on my personal accounts daily). So I diagnosed myself as, RIDICULOUS. No one was saying this junk to me except myself, and even if someone wanted to say this to me, it still only matters how I’m speaking to myself. And I was basically bullying myself? I birthed Holistically Sound. It is only what I have made from it so how could I possibly say that it does not represent me? Because it didn’t. Of course I felt fake when I noticed I was posting on instagram because “I had to.” And I was on talking about things that “fit.” All of this was so diametrically opposed from why Holistically Sound was born and where my heart was in becoming a health coach. I did not make this page to post a very separate and disconnected view of my real life. I DID to show people how someone as ‘normal’ as I am can maintain balance and embrace health in a life full of situations that tempt you away from it. I want to prove that loving yourself is really cool. I want to educate and motivate. I want to give and get advice. I want to encourage people to do anything they want, regardless of limitations. I want to connect and love people. And I can only do that as being Jenn Sarfaty, before I am Holistically Sound. Thank you for reading this XO
