Motivational Monday: Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

Monday, July 29, 2013

That quote is so true!

I know I often take the easy way out. Comfort is my middle name. I avoid pushing myself to my limits because it usually means that it feels (at least at that moment) uncomfortable. Let's take running, for example. I love it and I hate it. I love it because of the way it makes me feel when I'm done, and I hate it because it's so uncomfortable sometimes. The first mile or so is easy, and then it hits. I get tired, my legs feel heavy, I'm breathing harder... I know that it's mostly mental, and I just need to learn to be okay with being a little uncomfortable at times! Because I KNOW FOR A FACT that if I just keep on going and finish, I'll feel AMAZING and so much stronger than when I started. That is, of course, not to say I need to push through pain or something like that! Of course not. But a little discomfort is just a sign that you're challenging yourself and reaching new milestones.

I know I for one don't want to waste my life doing nothing just because it's so easy. I want to push myself and force myself outside of my comfort zone from time to time. That's the only way to grow!

Have a great week everyone!

    I have some pain issues which we don't need to go into here, but my DH has been chastising me lately for pushing myself too hard. All I can reply is that I will be darned if I will let the pain win and life pass me by! emoticon

    I love that quote too!! It is easy to do nothing, but so unrewarding! We do need to get out there and do many different things. emoticon emoticon

    Great attitude. I'm all about comfort, too. It's so much easier to pop in a movie and snuggle up in my comfy couch. But, like you said, after you work out, you feel awesome. Hopefully we can become addicted to that awesomeness and that will become our new comfort zone, eh?
