Monday Mindset: Challenges make you stronger.
Happy Mother’s Day again to all our special Fit Body Moms who make our world so much better! What a special day of celebration!
I’m fired up this morning, with a little caffeine to kick start my 5:15 am boot camp work out, my Monday and the week!
This is especially exciting as I just challenged myself to a 7-day caffeine detox last week, which I plan to do every quarter to reset my adrenal glands and cortisol levels which helps boost the immune system. This is in addition to reducing my daily ongoing caffeine intake by 30%.
It wasn’t fun, but I completed it and feel much better physically and mentally. I also gained massive confidence that I can do it again. As admittedly, I wasn’t looking forward to the actual 7 days being I love me some caffeine on the daily!
But while tough, that’s the beautiful thing about putting yourself through physical, emotional, and mental challenges. As if you can stay the course, gut through it even when times get tough, you come out better with the physical benefit, AND with a renewed sense of self-confidence.
This is true of any challenge, including our current COVID challenge, and certainly our New Year New You challenge which the winners were just announced recently.
For our NYNY Challengers, it wasn’t easy, the workouts and nutrition tracking were tough, the commitment was hard to endure, but everyone who completed the challenge became MUCH better off for it. And as a mentor of mine would always say: “Make a promise, and keep the promise. And when you do, you are better off and stronger for it.”
Sound advice and again congrats to all the challengers who completed it, including a special shout out to our 3 winners below. Incredible effort and consequently incredible results!
In closing, if you want to improve. If you want to get better. If you want to become stronger. And if you want to gain more confidence physically, emotionally, and mentally. Then…..do NOT run away from challenges, LEAN INTO THEM AND EMBRACE THEM!!
And no, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Many parts of the journey are downright awful. That is the truth. But when you make it through, you will get all the benefits listed above, including becoming a stronger version of YOU!
And as I close off today’s message and in speaking of the topic at hand; if you are in a place where you need more accountability, more nutrition coaching, and to better yourself physically, emotionally and mentally, I would HIGHLY encourage you to join our May 18 At Home Transformation Challenge, and registration is closing very soon, so don’t miss out!!
