Win, Lose, or Learn

I’m roughly half way through the #SeptemberSprint.
(If you’re new here, this post will bring you up to speed)

There have been great days.

There have been agonizing days.

And to my surprise, there have been more than a few days in which I only showed up for myself because I knew I’d have to tell you about it. More on that if you read all the way to the bottom…

Great days…

I still love Orange Theory Fitness, so my HIIT days have been the easiest. If anything, the challenge has been keeping them limited to twice a week because I’d rather do 3-4 days of this party-on-a-treadmill…

The other easy step is the skin care routine because, honestly, I spent the first 20 years of my life outside, and now I’m totally freaked out about the possibility of looking 80 when I turn 50.

Agonizing days…

It turns out that 36 hrs is a MUCH DIFFERENT fast than a 24 hr fast. I can’t lie. I’ve only done one a week, rather than the two I challenged myself to do. I added back to back 24-hr fasts in attempts to achieve the same goal in a more forgiving way.

And here’s my confession… I haven’t been on my yoga mat once. I’ve done everything else to the best of my ability. Whether or not I succeeded, I can say I worked hard… except here. And it’s a struggle for me to tell you why because I’m not exactly sure yet.

I was a daily practitioner for years. I love my mat. Lululemon even made a custom mat for a workshop I offered a few years back. But for the last two weeks, I have walked into my yoga room, looked at my mat, and walked out with a heavy heart.

Lessons learned…

1 – Accountability really does matter, y’all! Really!!

In fact, I’ve learned that accountability is SO important that it’s inspired the creation of an accountability and support membership for current patients.

Ah MAY ZING! – Want details? Reply and tell me you want to know more. I’ll send you a personal note with everything you need to know to take advantage of this OH SO SPECIAL OFFER!

2 – Perfect is not required for progress.

My life has had a few big and unexpected stumbles in the last few weeks (can you relate?).

I got derailed. I stumbled. But I dusted off my busted knees and kept going. I recovered and kept sprinting, in part because I believed that others were counting on me and in part because…

3 – When it’s most difficult, it’s most important.

Life has a way of tripping all of us up. Kids get sick. Parents grow old. Relationships become distanced. Projects end. Chapters close.

And life goes on.

When your life is tough, you know who you really need on your team? YOU!

Investing in your health makes you more resilient. Being the best version of you means that more of you is available to be a resource to, rather than a drain on, those who surround you.

I love what I do because I get to be a part of that for you and so many others. It’s my job to help you become the best version of you that you’re willing to be. And it fuels my desire to be the best version of me that I can be.

As I mentioned earlier, the lessons unfolding through this #SeptemberSprint have lead me to create something deeply special. It will save you money, ensure your success, and propel you forward when you’re most in need.

It’s the perfect combination of tough and love, accountability and encouragement, coaching and clarity.

If you want to know more, all you need to do is email me and ask for more details. I will personally answer your questions and hopefully provide the nudge you need to rock this!
