Tonight was back squats….enter challenge. I am not good at heavy lifts. I struggle with my form (my husband corrects it all the time, lol), I feel uncomfortable, they hurt (a little bit ?) and makes my brain a little anxious during the lift. But if I avoided them, I wouldn’t get stronger, I wouldn’t test my willpower to keep going. Beat that mental game and push through. That is why I’m doing them.
2 months ago I made a decision to up my game, push my limits and take my body to the next level. I was feeling like I was just going through the motions without making any progress or seeing the changes in my physique that I was wanting. That is when I read about the Slap 90 Day Contest (with Slap Nutrition) of refocusing, recommitting and rediscovery. Perfect timing! Being a part of this challenge has been so good for me. It is always in the back of my mind, pushing me, reminding me that I have made a commitment to get better, work harder, stay consistent… basically to live better each day.
Therefore, the 6 week program we’ve chosen to take us into the final stretch is on point! It is crazy hard and is certainly pushing us harder than we’ve pushed in awhile! As we head into the last month, I’m happy with my growth so far, personally & physically. ?? It’s important to push yourself past your comfort zone. If you always do the same workouts, the same exercises (maybe because that’s what is easy for you, you’re good at it, or you just like what you like) you’ll stay stagnant & struggle to see change. Try something new! Find a program that pushes you just a little more & will challenge you. Through challenge is where you’ll see change!!
I hope this is helpful. I hope, by sharing my story, you will feel inspired. Inspired to take your own challenge, push yourself past your limits and see the change you have been wanting. It is possible! As always, I’d love to connect with you. Share a bit of your journey in the comments below!
