Embrace your STRUGGLE

It’s easy for me to get to the gym everyday. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
One of my biggest fears as a coach has always been that I won’t be relatable. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And I’ll be honest, lately that fear has been in overdrive. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I genuinely love fitness. It makes me happy. It isn’t a struggle to commit to and quite honestly, I have a harder time taking a day off than I do getting a workout in. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But hear me out. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I wasn’t always like this. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I found fitness at a time when I needed it the most. I was miserable in my own skin, tormented by food, and hated my body more than anything.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I was out of shape, not athletic and started forcing myself to exercise. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Now my struggle isn’t fitness. ⁣⁣
My struggle is my mindset. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
There are days where my anxiety is so bad I have to tell myself to just make to the gym and I’ll feel better. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
There are days where I am nauseous from anxiety and the only thing to cure it is a workout. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
There are days where the one time I am not panicked is when I am moving for an hour at the gym. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’m not sharing this so you officially think I’m a crazy, but to be honest. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You will forever have things that are a struggle for you. ⁣⁣
For every one thing that seems easy for someone, there is always something they struggle with on the other side. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
These may change. ⁣⁣
These may evolve. ⁣⁣
But I promise for every struggle there is always a solution, and it may just lead you to your biggest strengths. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Embrace it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What is one thing you are struggling with currently? ⁣⁣
