Mindset Monday – Be The Duck!

Friendly reminder to ‘be the duck’, and let the “haters” roll off your back today!

There are going to be people who have something to say about the game, how it was won, everything…

Today is a prime day for baiting people into losing their minds, so don’t fall for it! Don’t let them get the best of you, don’t let other people’s troll tactics take away from the victory of what your team did; let’s just bask in the glory and celebrate!

Congratulations Patriots! ❤️🏈💙

Saturday Sweat – The Body ACHIEVES what the mind BELIEVES

“The obstacle is the way. You gotta go through it.”

My trainer said this during my workout today, and she couldn’t be more spot on! Oftentimes we come to obstacles and our thoughts go to “how can I get around this? Over this? Under this?”

You know how in an obstacle course, if you go around them you get disqualified? Same premise!

You gotta go through it. That’s just the only way. And I’ve had to level up and go through tons of obstacles myself, and you know what? That’s a big reason why I’m now so confident and secure in my abilities!

There is definitely something to be said for the feeling of coming to and obstacle, working through it, and coming out the other side.

Get your MIND right and there’s no obstacle that stands a chance 😉

Mindset Monday – Your Biggest Obstacle

• MINDSET MONDAY •

Look, I’m living freakin’ proof that your mindset is not only your BIGGEST obstacle, but it’s also the most POWERFUL puzzle piece.

I used to focus on negatives, zero in on imperfections, give way too much weight to flaws, treat everyone like my personal therapist, and just straight up did not believe in myself. So everything was mediocre.

Because I mean, of course – you CAN’T and you WON’T be able to SHINE until you get your mind right. There is no way around it; your mindset and your belief in yourself are the powerful one-two punch you NEED to be unstoppable.

So, clear the mental chatter and just believe in your abilities, right here, right now. YES, YOU CAN DO JUST THAT. It’s hard, yes (and worth it!), but impossible? NOPE.

Need help? We’re better together, dont’cha know? 😉

Wednesday Wisdom – With Brave Wings, She Flies

“I could never do what you do!”

I get this message way more than I’d like and it makes me sad… and my response varies, but it’s usually along the lines of “have you even tried?” or “not with that attitude!” because here’s the thing…

I had those same limiting thoughts. I thought I couldn’t do the things too. In fact, 5 years ago I almost said no to Rebecca’s challenge group invite because I was convinced I couldn’t do it due to lingering injuries.

And some things I couldn’t (and some things I still can’t!) do…

…but the difference is I was willing to •try•
I was willing to •fail•
I was willing to •modify•

I was willing to check those limiting beliefs at the door and see what I’m capable of when my MIND and my BELIEF IN MY SELF are in the drivers seat.

I was willing to go in open minded, instead of weighed down by the baggage of what I might not be able to do.

And with that shift came a lot of power. I no longer watch new programs come out and think “I could never do that”, instead I start at Day 1 and I build. And fail. And modify. It’s not always pretty…

But it starts with being brave enough to TRY. You can’t FLY if you don’t TRY.

GO FLY. 

 

Fit Tip Friday – Change Your Mindset

I am so often asked how I stay motivated and consistently show up.

And honestly, some days, I have NO IDEA how I do that, I just do. Those days are rare, but they happen.

Other days, it helps immensely that I have a friend/success partner/workout accountabilibuddy that’s on the same page as me, and pushes me to show up, and reminds me why we do it, and on days we can, joins me virtually to crush it together.

And some days, it’s the amazing group Sara and I run, full of amazing ladies who are also working on their best self, who are also showing up consistently, who also motivate, inspire, encourage and empower me.

But also, something that worked for me was changing my mindset from feeling like I ‘have to’ (as if wellness is a chore or something 🤦‍♀️) to feeling blessed to be ‘able to’.

I have PUSHED my body, and she is CAPABLE… and that is a GIFT, one I try not to take for granted.

And those rare moments where my mindset shifts from “get to” to “have to” I remind myself that there are people who are unable – perhaps due to disease, perhaps due to injury, perhaps due to another circumstance. And so it makes it easier to realize I am blessed to be able, and that becomes fuel to JUST DO IT.

When you change the way you see things, magic happens! 💕

Mindset Monday – Fail Forward!

I have had every opportunity to fail.

You can CHOOSE to be a victim, CHOOSE to be sad, CHOOSE to be a failure… or you can CHOOSE to change.

It IS a choice.

You have the POWER to CREATE your future.

To rise above.
To move on.
To grow.

To F A I L forward.

Let your failures FUEL you.

Because you know what I have learned? You can’t shine without a little darkness
