I am sure some people think this is dramatic..but, its not.
Its totally true for a lot of people. Me included.
I am on day 5 of my new workout program. There is a move that when i first saw it on day 1, I laughed. I really did. I was like....NO WAY.
NO WAY can i do that...and its ridiculous that this move would even be on day 1. Who do they think they are working with?!?
And so, I didn't even try. Didn't even give it a go. I know me, I know my body and I didn't see any good reason to even try because I just KNEW I couldn't do it...and everytime it has come up over this week...I instantly just went to the modification (with a huge eye roll of course).
This morning when I saw this quote come over my feed, it really hit me. LIKE A HUGE SMACK IN THE FACE. And I remember when I started this journey that I wasn't going to let fear stop me from doing things..in all areas of my life.
When I was coming to this move today, I thought about the quote and realized...what in the world am i afraid of? Getting embarrassed? I workout at home, who is gonna see me? What did I have to lose? Why was i afraid to try? Because i might fail? Fail at what? I mean, seriously? When i started thinking about it..it seemed crazy.
Who cares if i try and mess up or can't do it the whole time...WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL? How will i know if i don't even try? Hell, i might even surprise myself. So, when the move came up...
And you know what...i did it for like 15 seconds...and thats it. HA! But, now...i know I can do it..and next time I am going to try and make it 16 seconds at least. Goals people!
