Workout Wednesday..........That Little Voice In Your Head
That little voice tormented me for years.
You can't do that you're to............fat, huge, ugly, worthless, chunky, have bad knees, had a stroke, to old.
You know the voice. That irritating little thing that makes you assume that you can't even try something because you will fail.
But how do you know you will fail? Especially if you never try.
I listened to that voice. I followed that voice. I built a nice cozy little home in my head for that voice and invited it to take residence. That voice made me feel bad about myself. Loathe myself. Have such bitter disdain for myself.
Well, this morning, I got to tell the voice it is a LIAR.
I did something that I thought I NEVER would do. EVER.
I went to boot camp.
Boot camp. At 5:30 in the morning.
And I enjoyed it (GASP). Seriously (it may be all the endorphins that are pumping through my body right now that are talking).
I felt empowered, capable and strong. Me.....strong?! Who would have thought?! I would have told you to shut your mouth if you had said I would have enjoyed a boot camp a year ago.
I am feeling very accomplished right now. Probably because I am NOT a morning person and getting up at the crack of dawn is still new and exciting to me.
Anyway, go out there today and tell that voice that is a LIAR.
Just do what you are physically capable of. Whether it is walking around the block, running, strength training, swimming, taking a class....etc.
Just prove to yourself you are capable of doing great things.
Then, call the voice a liar and kick it out of your head for good!
Happy Workout Wednesday!
