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! 💕

Self Love Saturday – Gentle Movement

During my Reset, I have been doing gentle movement every couple of days to keep myself loose, but also enjoying the break from 6 days on, to let my body rest and work from the inside. I thought it would be a struggle, and some days it is a struggle to not lift, but it’s been nice to take it a little slower, too.

Today I did some Yoga and that felt pretty good! Of course, I did it via live Zoom with my best gal, my success partner – she in Michigan, myself in Rhode Island, because it doesn’t matter how far apart we are, we make it work!

Felt good to stretch and get some movement in!
