This. A couple of days ago I was told that I should maybe tone it down with how much I’m working out because the results I’m having might make certain people feel bad. It hurt. It hurt because I care about people and never want to be the reason someone else feels bad about their body. It hurt because I felt it was unfair to put that pressure on me - why was it my job to keep others from viewing themselves negatively. It hurt because I was SO excited with the results I was getting only to be told that I shouldn’t be. It hurt because I put so much work and tears and dedication into my fitness program and I felt that should be celebrated, not attacked. It hurt because it reminded me that there is always going to be someone who attacks my success. But, at the same time... I understood where they were coming from. And that’s a problem. We live in a world of comparison. I think we’ve all been guilty of comparing ourselves to others. I used to struggle with this. ESPECIALLY with fitness. I am naturally skinny - I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve been told to “put some meat on [my] bones.” But, that’s not easy for me. It’s hard for me to grow muscle. Yet, if I tell people that, they respond with, “I wish I had that problem.” Implying that my ‘problem’ isn’t valid. I struggled with comparing myself to the girls I saw on Instagram who were fit and toned - and actually had a booty. That was a toxic time in my life. Thankfully, a couple years back something clicked and I realized the only person I was competing against was myself. Since then, seeing others results no longer depresses me, it fuels me. I no longer despise those girls, I admire them. I guess what I am trying to say is that there is something special about being able to see someone else’s beauty/talent/success/growth and being able to appreciate them without allowing their beauty/talent/success/growth to diminish your own self worth. That’s one thing I absolutely love about the SWEAT community. I see women from all walks of life, in various stages of their fitness journey supporting, encouraging and cheering on each other. It’s beautiful. Let’s stop comparing and support each other. Whose with me?!
I’m the kind of person that has to know the HOWS, WHYS and details for everything. I analyze/ problem solve until my brain hurts. It’s annoying, I know 🤷🏽♀️But sometimes it’s a good thing!... and this time it’s good!
My coaching gig has given me the opportunity to become a Certified Master Coach!!! 🏅This means I will be going through training to gain more knowledge about nutrition and HOW and WHY it works with our bodies!
If you know me at all, you know I love wellness/nutrition and I’m super excited for this next chapter in advancing my biz!! I’ll be able to help even more people👋🏼😉 (maybe even my fiancé will listen to me now 🙊).
What’s even more exciting is, I am able to bring along some ladies into the training who would love to learn all about nutrition too! Everything is virtual, so you can do it all from home! .
If you’d like to know more about it, send me a DM or comment 👇🏼We have an info group which starts Wednesday. I’d love to have a few of you do it with me 💙
We are stronger together. There’s no question about it.
These girls are rock stars and seeing their hard work & sweat makes my ❤️ flutter.
Shoutout to @maljoest & @nadhornfit my dear friends, fellow HIIT warriors and bell swingers for killing our tabata programming and for just being awesome.
Like I always say, surround yourself with homies who make you stronger. 👯♀️💪🏼
“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” I heard this before yesterday’s hike with @theranchmalibu and it was exactly what I needed to remind myself to keep moving forward. 🙏🏼 The past few days have truly been physically and mentally challenging. I stretched my body and mind to new maximums by hiking 10+ miles each day. I broke through limiting beliefs that I wasn’t ready and I couldn’t do it. The “no I can’t” in my head transformed and evolved into a “maybe I can” into a “yes I can“. And I did! 💪🏼
As the new week is upon us and you see an obstacle in your view, know that you can. The limits you place on yourself are not permanent. You can remove your boundaries, one step at a time. ⛰
