Truth telling time…
I prefer morning runs. In other words, I really dislike afternoon / evening ones. I dunno why. Maybe because all of my decades long of triathlon workouts were in the evenings when my normal was two-a-day workouts back then.
I know this about me 💯 but I volunteered at a morning event nonetheless because my want to help high school students greatly outweighed my big baby antics about a nighttime jog.
And so it went. I kept pushing back my go time. Telling myself ALL THE excuses why I DESERVED to not go.
My upper limit Bitch was in FULL FORCE.
Time passes and I’m aimlessly scrolling insta when @get_fit_life_goals tags me in today’s flex Friday.
And as I lay in bed doing nothing, I share her flex to my stories. But then she asks me for mine so she can share it to hers.
And so I tag her my flex from LAST WEEK because I didn’t have a flex today cuz I’ve been doing nothing all day 😂.
And then the guilt crept in. I’m telling myself all these shit excuses to not do the thing when I very well know I can do the thing. Kim pushed me at a pivotal point where I was so close in giving into my BS.
“I just have to start.”
And so I did. And it got done. And yep, it still sucked but it be like that sometimes.
This is a very DRAWN OUT version to remind you your thoughts often is inner bully holding you back. Telling you all the reasons and ways you possibly can’t get what needs to be done.
The more you cave to the bully, the stronger it gets.
The more you can talk back to the bully to set the real record straight, the easier the battles become.
TBH, I don’t have these days that often, so it even caught me by surprise.
I’m fortunate enough to have a support crew of amazing women that work hard to help lift one another up. It’s not competition; it’s like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Muscles 💪🏾! BTW – have you seen the movie, The Sisterhood of the Traveling PANTS 👖?One of my younger days favorites. ❤️
THANK YOU FOR FLEXING ME UP @get_fit_life_goals ❤️🔥🌈💪🏾🏃🏽♀️♥️💎💯👄
