Friday Fit Tip – Stop Beating Yourself Up

Happy Friday! Are you guilty of this? I used to be, but I worked really hard to correct that behavior, because honestly it serves NO purpose! My workouts are NEVER perfect, and I almost ALWAYS have to modify at least ONE move. THAT’S OKAY! What matters is I showed up. It doesn’t matter what I didn’t do, or what I modified.

If you find yourself speaking negatively about yourself or your efforts, rectify it by immediately talking positively about yourself. For example, instead of “how could you not do all of the pushups on your toes?! FAILURE!”, say “Wow, you did all of the pushups – modified only means you will get stronger and someday you will be doing those babies on your toes!”

You get the point. Tolerate absolutely NO negative self banter!
