Change your mindset
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
I've been down lately. Work has taken a lot of my time and I've let my fitness slip. So I stepped out of my comfort zone and have started training with a more advance training program. I had to swallow my pride last night. I had to scale my workouts, because I had a whole day of working my weaknesses (strict handstand pushups, ring muscle ups). The only thing I could do without scaling was the rowing and running. I suck at running, but I can kill on the rower.
Anyways, I've had to change my mindset. Lately I've been focused on weight loss and I just get discouraged and frustrated when I do that. I'm putting my scale up and weighing only 2x a month and tracking my food.
I have some new goals:
Ring and bar muscle ups by the end of July.
Deadlift - 300# by the end of the year.
Back Squat - 230 by the end of the year
Chest to Bar Pull ups - string 5 together unbroken
I watched a YouTube video that really hit me this morning. It was the mom of one of the athletes that said, "Be Proud of what you can do, not what your body tells you in the mirror." It's a little paraphrased, but I love it!!!
Take a few moments to watch this video and see some very strong women. They aren't looking for skinny, but strength and physical ability......
