I love those mondays (or days in general) when waking up isn’t tough. I was able to get right up, drink my pre workout & head on over to the gym despite the rain. Although I started with my 30 minute cardio session, I really didn’t want to complete it. The lack of progress I have been feeling lately in regards to my competition are affecting me mentally
why am I not sleek, fit, and ab-showing yet?
is this normal?
is my diet the right one for me?
I was getting too flustered this morning with negative thoughts so I did my best to drown them out and ended up having a fairly successful leg day!
Body image: we are all so self critical and nit-pick at the smallest things about ourselves. Focusing on our best features deems us as “cocky” or “self-absorbed”, but once we start nit picking on the worst we’re just looking for attention apparently. There’s no winning in society! I decided to stop thinking negatively about myself this morning and focus on the positives that will happen today:
- I will finish this cardio session strong
- I will go home and stick to my diet all day
- I will inspire people to be healthy as I teach about fiber benefits at a local community center
- I will make connections with parents at the regional hospital’s family health night tonight
- I will laugh a lot
- I will enjoy my cup of coffee (or 2 heheh)
It can be tough to stay positive, but surrounding yourself with positive thoughts and people can truly affect your mood for the better.
