Today was the first time in 2+ weeks I’ve gotten in exercise. 🏃🏻♀️ ☀️ I love the way exercise makes me feel mentally, so what’s keeping me from doing something that makes me feel good?
I have my annual fitness test for the military coming up in March, and two to three months out I start conditioning. I start running, doing sit ups, push ups, and timing myself to make sure I’m hitting the right numbers in order to achieve at least a 90%. ⏱
I have a sour attitude about it. I allowed myself to believe that running is hard, and it’s not something I do. Push ups suck, because I don’t like them. Sit ups are aren’t too bad, but if I want to max out, I need to hit 45 in under a minute and ensure I have proper form.
I allowed myself to settle into a lack mentality due to discomfort. I lack the strength and endurance to achieve the numbers I want...but here’s where I’m wrong.
At one point in my military career I scored a 95.1 out of 100 points. I KNOW I can do it! I’ve done the training before to hit my goals. So this morning on my run, I decided that having a lack mentality is not an option. What I think is what I become, so I decided I AM capable of hitting a 95. Me not working out is not an option, because that’s going to keep me from the goals I have to accomplish in order to succeed in my military career, along with setting standards of health and wellness.
How many of us allow ourselves to fall into a lack mentality, knowing that we’ve accomplished the hard thing before? Let’s not forget what we’ve labored through that lead us to where we are today. Believe that you can do it, because if you tell yourself that you can do it, then you will. Believe you CAN do the hard things. Push through the discomfort! 💪🏼 #UnstoppableInfluence #PushThrough at Idaho
