Let's face it! Changing your life, let alone your fitness habits, is a hard process. One week you're up and feeling on top of things. Then the next week you're down, wondering why you're putting yourself through this self-inflicted misery? If you're feeling this way right now, I want you to know that you're in good company. I've been there and so has your Fit Clinic coach.
Yes, things are hard. You might even be feeling like cancelling your membership because you're tired and you're unsure if you really have what it takes to reach the fitness goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year. When it comes to shaping the future that you want to have, how you decide to respond in a low moment like this is what matters the most.
Before you completely throw in the towel and walk away, I encourage you to reach out to someone in your tribe: your coach, a friend, a loved one and share with them how you're feeling. Let them help you process through your thoughts and emotions. This way you can come to a place of clarity and not one of haste. You weren't made to live on an island by yourself. You were created to be in community with others who care for you.
In times of great challenge and difficulty, you have to dig deep---we all do. You have to think about your personal integrity, your personal honor, and self-respect because at the end of the day you have to be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say, "I gave everything I had." To be able to do this, requires humility and reaching out to your community when you're feeling low, not because you're weak, but because you want to remain strong.
The struggle is real, but it exists as a tool to either help build something greater in you or to reveal something that you've never seen in yourself. Regardless, who you become in the process is worth navigating through the uncertainty, the fatigue, and the discomfort. The great news is you don't have to do it alone. So, lean on your tribe.
