Day 50 highlight

Thursday, August 27, 2020

Today I celebrate 50 consecutive days of showing up for me. emoticon
My highlight for today is my growing mental resilience. I have been feeling demotivated for the past two days after almost a month of feeling unstoppable. This time around was different. I told myself that I have been here before (this is true: many, many times I just ran out of gas). I already know how it feels to gradually roll to a stop. But I don't know how it feels to re-fuel and get back on the road. So I revisited my recently updated reasons why I have been doing this work for what seems like my entire life. The ones that stuck with me are:
- I want to win back my self-admiration emoticon
- I want to feel beautiful, confident, sexy in my body to me, for me emoticon
- I want to stop feeling "less than" emoticon
But the one that got me out of bed this morning was far, far simpler:
I promised myself one year for me. A year has 365 days so I can't quit now.
That's what did it and yes, I showed up today, day 50.
I worked out, had a breakfast for champions and just like that I'm back. Back in the right frame of mind, back on my nutrition programme, back to being my own cheerleader.
Back to feeling I can absolutely do this. emoticon
Forward! emoticon

    Great post, and something I'll keep in mind for when I hit those days too. I know they'll be coming.

    What we tell ourselves on this journey can make or break us. Congrats on making it WORK for you AND for staying committed.

    Make today the greatest day of your life
    Until tomorrow!

    It is those who concentrates on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.
