Sometimes, it feels like we are repeatedly starting over…
starting over at weight loss….
starting over at running…
starting over in a relationship…
starting over with a new goal…
starting over with a new mantra…
I mean, IF ONLY right??
If ONLY we could just lose those few extra pounds….everything would be better.
If ONLY we could run those extra miles….everything would be better.
If ONLY every day was as happy as yesterday…everything would be better.
Life doesn’t work that way.
Most mornings, I wake up feeling like I have to “start over”. Maybe not at weight loss (101 lbs is a lot to start over) but I feel like my struggle to keep my weight where it is at is a constant “start over” moment.
My running lately certainly feels like a HUGE “start over”…2 bad races in a row, poor breathing, hip
problems, endurance struggles…this aint my first fucking rodeo, so why does it feel like it??
Here’s a little word of advice I think I’ve learned recently….
If it doesn’t feel like you’re “starting over” then you are not living up to your full potential. You are half ass’ing it and not giving it all you got. Or maybe you WERN”T giving it all you got for a while.
Lost 25 lbs and now you’re stuck?? Feel like you’re “starting over”?? Ran a 10K and now you can barely run 3 miles?? Feel like you’re “starting over”??
You are NOT starting over….you are GROWING!!!!
I wish I could put into words how much I’ve *mentally* grown these past 3 months, but I cant quite yet.
But please, don’t tell yourself you are starting over…because you are not…you are growing stronger and wiser. And you don’t ever want to stop doing that do you??
