Twelve months ago I decided that I wanted to take the next step and invest in myself… I quit being a fitness trainer working for someone else, focused on learning as much as I could, and went on a long journey to start Kappatalize Fitness whilst working full time, and doing my thesis part time… it was really hard work to set up a business, get the right plans in place, learn all about marketing, IT, website, and all sorts of things….. During this journey I also found out I was pregnant… rather than stop, I decided I would keep moving forward with my goal to launch #kappasfitbodies in the Spring.
My struggle during this time was the changes to my body, changes to my emotional state and struggling to get out of my comfort zone whilst all these exciting changes were taking place..
Since falling pregnant, I found it hard to cope with a growing body and belly… I didn’t want to accept that I could still feel good and look good and be inspiring to my members… Why? Because of stigma, because of being judged, because so many people have an image of what fit or what a fitness trainer should look like! These are the bull shit stories I was telling myself. So to combat these feelings, to grow as an individual, and to convince myself it was okay and these thoughts were just thoughts that were holding me back, I decided to put together a video that puts me out of my comfort zone and posted it all over Facebook!
Bull shit stories are things that we tell ourselves so we can excuse ourselves from stepping outside of our comfort, from rising to new challenges, to new thoughts, to new lasting habits and to new behaviours…
We all face struggles in our lives, fears, thoughts that may take us beyond what we think we are capable of… that is why so many of us set goals, say we will start next week, next year, when my friend is ready so we can support each other, use injuries as excuses, work, life and all sorts of things…
We all have the same 24 hours in the day, and how we choose to spend these is up to us…
Some of us choose to use these hours to focus on ourselves, on time to ourselves.. doesn’t mean we can not still have our kids, work and social lives are priority!
Just sometimes we need to make ourselves our first priority for an hour a day!
Why start next year or next week?
Why not start right now!
To grow and get results however the best thing we can do is face the bull shit stories we tell ourselves!
Hopefully this video inspires you to stop talking BS to yourself and get you inspired to have that difficult conversation with yourself to make a decision to face up to your struggles, to your pain… whether they be time, emotional eating, lack of motivation or something else….
Most people will tell me they don’t have time.
Stop Excusing Yourself
Focus on what you can do rather than what you cant do!
And dig deep to work out why you actually tell yourself these things.
