Happy Sunday all... Luckily our neighbors know we are fit freaks or one might think I'm just crazy but either way... The older I get, I care less about what people think and more about how I feel. Fitness is a major part of my life... I'm that person doing bodyweight exercises in front of the TV when I have time to catch up on shows I enjoy. I'm that person that will be doing jump squats at my desk if I sit too long. Not because I have something to prove or I want to show off, but my body and joints literally ache if I sit idle for more than an hour. Some people make comments like "girl you doin too much..." Or "why are you obsessed with working out?"... I used to think that way many years ago... When I was unhealthy, unhappy and NOT DOING ENOUGH. I'm not going to judge anyone's efforts but my mindset has always been go hard or go home in everything. Each workout I try to beat my last best... I'll admit it's addicting when you beat personal bests.. I tell my clients, progress is not always found in how much weight or inches we lose but in your fitness level too. Improving strength and endurance with each workout is great when you can look back to where you started as a newbie and see how far you've come. Don't compare your progress to someone else's... We are all different... Focus on yourself and your journey because YOU are your competition. And never judge someone else's journey because you don't know what they went through or know how far they've come to get there. We were ALL beginners once and we all still have our vices and insecurities regardless of what stage in our journey we are at. The journey is ongoing and we all have to just keep at it no matter what anyone else thinks. Have a great day all.
