To stop focusing on those last 5lbs and start creating some fitness goals to work towards. (๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ) โฃ

When I asked what one fitness goal was you’d like to accomplish was in the comments, I realized a big disconnect…. โฃ

Here’s the issue with this, these response were focused on the things these women wanted to ๐‚๐‡๐€๐๐†๐„ instead of the things they wanted to ๐€๐‚๐‚๐Ž๐Œ๐๐‹๐ˆ๐’๐‡. โฃ

Reality is, we can spend all day wishing we would have a flatter tummy, lose 5lbs, or grow a booty. โฃ
โฃ
But we’re in for a big disappointment and a long frustrating ride when we realize that focusing on those things, often only makes us notice those “imperfections” we want to alter more and more without any real results. โฃ
โฃ
Instead, what if you flipped your focus to things like squatting more weight (๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ง๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜บ). โฃ

โฃ
When we start to focus on the things we want to accomplish you’ll find you start to care a whole lot less about the things you want to change. โฃ
โฃ
You start to focus on ways you can work to improve. โฃ
You start to focus on finding workouts you enjoy and thrive with. โฃ
You start to celebrate small wins like doing one more push up, one extra rep, or that 1 minute off of your mile time. โฃ
โฃ
You start to care a whole lot less about how your body looks and focus more on what your body is capable of doing. โฃ

I allowed myself some of the โ€œprocessedโ€ foods I once labeled off limits. โฃโฃ
I balanced them out with filling, whole, nutrient dense foods that I actually craved a whole lot more when I didnโ€™t feel like I โ€œhad toโ€ eat them. โฃโฃ
I worked towards a calorie goal for the day and planned around the fact that I would want a snack and carbs at night (and still lost weight). โฃโฃ
