Turns out I won’t be able to write a blog post daily like I wanted to =\
I got promoted to this very self-driven, challenging, awesome job last year and it’s taking me a while to adjust
I really want to mostly focus my energy on learning everything I can in the next three months
And because it’s been so stressful, I figured why not add a picture of me in Venice, Italy from last year 🙂
It’s always great practice when you’re going through a stressful time, to look back at something you are grateful for
Specially, something you were able to do because of why you’re stressed
(ex. because of my job, I can afford a trip to Italy)
Today I wanted to drop a quick reminder that it’s YOUR journey!
I think we all need this reminder sometimes
I see and follow so many amazing fitness models or fitness bloggers
They look perfect, but we can’t forget we are looking at the “finished” project
We also can’t forget what they have sacrificed to get there…
Pizza nights, wine, ice cream, pasta and much more!
I’ll be the first to admit it, I’m the first to complain and wonder why I don’t look a certain way
I tell myself, “You workout so much! You should be there by now. This is pointless!”
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said EXACTLY that
And then, I remind myself of the entire pizza I had to myself the week before
The “cheat day” not “cheat meal” I had ‘that other weekend’
I mean, how can I say I’m doing everything right?
I’m NOT fully invested if that’s what’s happening, and neither are you
It sucks to hear it but we need to hear the truth to start getting in the right track!
I’ve started eating 100% healthy, and hitting my macros not even a month ago
Before that, I was killing myself at the gym
But guess what?
I wasn’t getting the results I wanted
What you eat is 80% of your results
So FIRST, stop the pity party you are throwing yourself (have self compassion)
TWO, re-evaluate what you have eaten or start a food diary of what you eat everyday
THREE, start over again!
YES! Start over but this time, be wiser
We fall and we get back up again
We don’t give up on our dreams
We only live once and if we’re lucky, we live a full life
And guess what?
A big part of that is how we treat our bodies.
KITCHEN FIRST, GYM SECOND.
You got this! 😉
Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are not sure how to go about your diet
Or text me if you know my number!
I’ll be happy to stir you in the right direction
We’re in this together!
