You are not always going to be motivated.
You are not always going to be talented.
You are not always going to know enough.
You can ALWAYS choose to be disciplined.
This is one of the biggest misconceptions I see in the health & fitness field… successful people DO NOT have more motivation, talent, or smarts.
They too have days where they don’t feel like it either.
They too get tired.
They too would much rather eat peanut butter cups than broccoli too.
But they have the DISCIPLINE to choose to stay on track.
They have the DRIVE to keep going even when they don’t feel like it.
Just. Show. Up.
P.S. Just shared a mini workout over on Instagram 💪 Come find me @daniellegracep
Day one all over again. ☝️
Today I was all ready to share with you how I started to feel myself sliding back on my journey and was ready to recommit.
Then I realized just how much I’ve screwed up…
I did that a month ago. 🤦♀️
And guess what?
I didn’t quite follow through.
I started to beat myself up big time. I started to focus on all the things I haven’t been doing.
My nutrition hasn’t been perfect.
I haven’t been documenting my journey like I usually do (AKA progress pictures, measurements, etc..)
My mindset has been slipping (hello seasonal depression & anxiety).
But then I realized something.
I was doing EXACTLY what I tell my clients not to do.
I was choosing to ignore the fact that despite all of this I’ve been continuing to show up.
I’ve been continuing to eat well 80-90% of the time.
I’ve been continuing to exercise daily and push myself.
And here I was focusing on the negative and stressing over things I can no longer change.
So here’s your reminder as I commit to my day one all over again too.
You always have a choice.
Celebrate what you’re doing well.
Acknowledge the not so great behaviors creeping in.
And choose to control what you can moving forward.
One day at a time. One meal at a time. One workout at a time.
Forever a work in progress on my journey too. In this with you. 👯♀️
What is one goal you’re working on for the end of the year?🏋🏻♀️
Please never take your health or granted.
One of the greatest gifts we are given is the ability to move and so often it can be something we so simply overlook.
When you are short on time.
When you feel like quitting.
When you are tired, grumpy, or just don’t feel like exercising.
Remember what an amazing privilege it is to move your body.
Appreciate the fact that you are capable of getting stronger every single day.
Take advantage of a natural antidepressant and the ability to improve your health.
Choose to workout… because you CAN.

Movement is my THERAPY.
When I fell in love with dance, I had no idea that it would quickly become the greatest thing I could do for myself and my body.
I lacked confidence.
I was plagued by food and an eating disorder.
But it quickly became the one outlet for my anxiety and self hatred.
It brought me joy and community during a time when I felt very much alone.
When I fell in love with group fitness it gave me direction during a time when I felt lost.
I struggled with body image, speaking up for myself,
It taught me confidence.
I found my passion.
When I fell in love with strength training it taught me to appreciate my body for what it could do instead of how it looked.
It taught me strength.
It helped me fight depression and anxiety.
It became the outlet that saved me.
𝐁𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐨𝐦 𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐞.
It doesn’t matter what you do.
Find what you love.
Find what brings you joy.
