Day 50 highlight
Thursday, August 27, 2020
Today I celebrate 50 consecutive days of showing up for me.
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
- I want to feel beautiful, confident, sexy in my body to me, for me
- I want to stop feeling "less than"
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.
