Breaking Up With Your Past
Are you letting your past dictate your future?
When we have faced challenges in our lives it is easy to let them influence how we think about the present and future. When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2017 I was devastated because I was in so much pain I could hardly do daily activities or workout like I was used to. It not only affected me physically but mentally and emotionally as well.
When I came back to Get Fit NH I was thrilled to be a part of an awesome family again but I was worried about my body handling the training. I am not in the same shape I was 3 years ago when I left Get Fit NH. I will admit there have been times I have really beat myself up for that. I remember during one trainings that was particularly difficult for me thinking how mad I was about what has happened to me over the past 2 years. Then I realized that being mad about it is not productive and will not help me achieve my goals. I have to make modifications to exercises that 3 years ago I could have easily done. I am learning to accept that because if I train smart consistently I will achieve my goals. I need to persistently make the choice daily, sometimes even hourly or even in a moment, to not let my fibromyalgia dictate my future.
What challenges have you faced? Injuries/illness, unhealthy eating habits, or making time for training? Whatever your challenges have been know that it is never too late to make changes. While we can learn from our past it does not have to control our future. You have the choice to make changes and achieve your goals. One of great parts about being a part of the Get Fit NH family is that you have a support system to help you move forward in a positive direction.
Tell us your challenges. Tell us your goals. Together we will Make It Happen!
