Have you ever had an injury, or a rough patch, or just a period of time where things didn't go they way you want them to?
How'd you feel? Guilty? Angry? Anxious? Beat up?
That's how I feel. Right now. :*( I can't help it, it's my tenacious nature.
I have shin splits in my left leg. I know why = increase mileage and time running. And I know I should rest. I know I should take it easy. I know if I don't I'll end up hurting myself.
But I can't help it, there's a voice inside of me saying that I'm giving up, that I'm wasting a day. It's like there's a battle in my mind between the good and evil. And some moments I beat myself up, and some moments I'm proud of what I've done.
When I get to feeling like that... when I beat myself up for not having done enough, for not pushing harder, for not doing more... I listen to this...
(I apologize ahead of time, I'm not a Miley Cyrus fan, but the words are meaningful.)
Don't give up when things don't go your way. Don't give in to that voice who beats you up day to day cause you didn't do everything perfectly.
Remember that you are on a marathon, not sprint. Enjoy today and the moment to moment you're living in healthy and fitness.
Climb the mountain. Keep moving forward.
