…but I still struggle. I still struggle to see the progress when I look in the mirror. I still struggle to believe all the things I have accomplished in the last four months. Some days I struggle to get through my work out, heck some days I struggle to even push play. I struggle with doubt in my mind. I know I have done amazing things in these past four months. I know my body has changed. But there are some days I struggle to feel this and believe it.
I looked in the mirror today and felt like there was no change. All I can see is that tummy that still sticks out a little too far for my liking. I can’t see or feel any of the other progress I have made. It can be so defeating if I let my mind stay there. However, these are days I must blast worship music and find my center. I must push through the lies, that linger in my mind and remember that I have worked my butt off to get where I am and I’m doing well. I am human and I struggle. Even with all the goals I’ve hit and all the success I have had so far. I still struggle and that’s okay, because at the end of the day I will pick myself up and go forward.
I wanted to share this because if you struggle like I do, I want you to know you aren’t alone. I want you write out every success you’ve had during your health journey and celebrate it! You can even email them to me, hit me up on Facebook or Instagram and I will celebrate with you.
It’s okay to struggle, but don’t live in that mind set. You are doing great and you feel amazing, you just have to keep going!
