Powering Through

Exercise Motivation

I do not always feel up to working out, but I make a commitment to myself to go at least two times a week no matter what! I really struggle on days where I am tired, in a foul mood or just had a negative, downer day. I use the motivation to go by telling myself I will feel much better after exercising and I do! I also find the motivation in putting on my work out clothes and my tennis shoes on. It is go time!


Getting Into Gear & Just Going . . .

I am constantly telling myself I can do this or that or at least give it a try! I grew up being active and pretty athletic. That helps when it comes to working out and exercising. I tell my crazy mind what I am doing and put my body into action!

I am learning that I am stronger than I think! I am creating that  foundation to build off of to get stronger and to develop my endurance over time. I am learning that there is a difference between my inner strength and my physical strength. I am discovering my strong and enjoying the process!  


Discovering My STRONG!

I am learning that I have to continue to challenge my whole being! I need to stimulate my mind, engage my body and tune in from the inside out. It certainly helps me in all aspects of my life too! I use to think repeat and repeat. Now I think practice and repeat, which leads to challenge and results in change. I love seeing the results and gaining the rewards!

I am pushing my body and my whole being to new limits and actually like it! Challenging and different are good for me. I am okay with sweating now because I know I am working hard! I can do anything for at least 20 seconds when pushing my body, especially in doing something new. Just dig in and get it done already because then it will be over!


One Step At A Time  . . .

I am my biggest cheerleader and supporter! I motivate, inspire and encourage myself. Yes, I talk to myself when working out. Yes, I make a few noises when working out. Yes, I can laugh at myself and have a good time doing it too!

Expectation vs. Conviction

The Valuable Usage of Words

I have been known to use the words could, should and would! I am working on using words, like can, shall and will instead!

I find myself using the words could, should and would when I set high expectations for myself! I am just setting myself up for failure in doing that though.

I also find myself using these words to hold myself back! I find it is easier than being judged or compared by other people as being or doing too much. It is that feeling of not being in control or being controlled by others. It is getting into that people pleasing at times!

There is that fine balance between meeting my individual needs and putting the needs of other people before mine! There needs to a good amount of give as well as receive, especially when it comes to doing for myself. I have talked before about giving a strong no versus a weak yes and then not following through! I am doing no good when I do that and my actions do speak louder than words at times.

I am finding conviction and commitment when I make bold statements using words like can, shall and will! For instance, I will spend time taking care of myself and my needs. I do think it is easier to convict and commit when I really want to do something too! I ask myself when torn, “What do I really want?”.

Conviction: The act of moving a person by a course of action.
