It's not the photo that counts. What counts is I still show up. I've struggled with weight issues my whole life. I really think alot of it has to do with emotional and sneek eating. Being deprived of foods, told I'm not allowed to eat them helped me develop a deep addiction to all things (bad). I always look at food as the issue and not my relationship to good. Food is for fuel to be able to help to keep me alive and to give me energy, NOT for instant gratification. When I was older I turned to marijuana which of course has the side effect of the munchies. I had a really bad addiction to this. It was starting to ruin my life. No motivation for anything and my life was starting to spiral due to a number of things. O had no choice quit or go no where. That was nearly 10 yrs ago. Now I am almost 7mths sober and whole I have my bad days my bad days are better than my best days ever were back then. I am an ever changing woman. I am stronger than I ever thought more determined and I am definitely happier and healthier than ever before.
"If we don't take a chance, we don't stand a chance!" Imagine if no one ever took a chance. What would this works look like? Do you think we, as a society would look and act the same? So many great things happened, inventions and ideas were created because someone took a chance. Stop allowing yourself to convince you that you're not worth it, that you're dreams are impossible, that you're not smart enough, that you're not this or that. My idea of chance is an opportunity presented to you that you want but aren't sure that you can obtain it. So this gives you two choices. Do I have the courage to fail and fail again in order to get what I want or do I convince myself that I'm not worth it, i can't do that? Something I remember @nipseyhussle said. "We all are entitled to a great life." The question is, do you have the courage to stand up for yourself, do you believe your entitled to a great life?
What if you took 1 chance at a time? Start with something small. Then maybe work your way to the bigger. The bigger the chance the greater the failure but what if that chance turned into everything you ever wanted. I believe I'm worth it, I believe you are worth it. You don't have to take every chance, but DAMN IT, TAKE A CHANCE. Your future self will thank you for it!
Starting to work my way back up in squats after having to Delia’s from 3rd failure at 265lbs. Beach was a mess; but I’m hoping that was more of an off day thing. Despite the low rep count, I fought it as hard as I could. Bent rows went surprisingly well. #5x5stronglifts#stronglifts5x5#neverquit#stronglifts
