When I went on my first big hike in Yosemite, I was convinced that I wasn’t going to make it very far. There were ominous switchbacks, professional hikers passing us by, and a blister that popped up after about 5 minutes and continued to irritate me the whole way up. It was tiring. I was sweaty. And there were no views, just trees. I remember asking myself, “What was so different about this? Why not just stay on the ground?” 😩
Fast forward about two a half hours later, and we broke past the tree line. The valley spread out below us, and the mountains across the way felt like they were at my eye level. I had never experienced feeling so small in comparison to the incredible world around me. It was probably one of the few times where I really felt like someone divine had handmade this world. ✨
From then on, I was hooked. I’ve hiked a number of different places, always ready to find the views, the most recent being Mount Tamalpais. I’m at a very different place in my health journey, and I can’t explain how good it feels to know that your body can work in a way that can bring you over mountains. 💪🏻
My body is strong. My body is beautiful. And it is enough. One year ago I began repeating those three sentiments to myself. Today, without a shadow of a doubt, I believe them.
Today was literally a pain in my butt. 😂
If you told me even 1 week ago that I'd make it through an hour workout that was focused solely on the glutes, I would have doubted I'd finish it.
1) I get bored easily
2) An hour is too long to work 1 muscle group
3) I didn't think I'd last physically!
I surprised myself!
I stayed engaged and actually enjoyed the workout! The time flew by actually.
I lasted! AND I used heavier bands today than I did last Tuesday in all exercises except for ONE!
Small wins every day!
That's how you do it. 👊
Tell me how I can help you with your wins!
I've got THREE new groups starting in February, each being a little different... But you got to tell me your needs so I can help you figure out which one is best for you!
