“You can carry the past on your shoulders OR you can start over!” We all have a story. We all have regrets. We all have things we have been through and overcome...am I right?
Yesterday in our bible study we were talking about forgiveness. Both accepting forgiveness and the grace God has provided for us AND giving it out to others. Along with this convo came the topic of forgiving OURSELVES. This is what I find the most difficult. Do you have a hard time with this? There are several things I wish I could go back in my life and change...a whole chunk of my mid-twenties to be exact ♀️...but we can’t, it’s not how life works. But what we CAN do is let go of the past, start over and press on.
The connection I’m about to make with forgiveness and fitness is going to feel like a stretch buuuut hang with me
In my groups I often remind our ladies to show themselves GRACE for whatever choices they may or may not make throughout their journey. Grace meaning to let go of the shame or guilt for the food choices they may make.
This is where I believe freedom is found. ..
We forgive ourselves for being so tough on our own journey and for attaching our worth to food and exercise in the first place! So, Sister, my Challenge to you today is to let go, accept the forgiveness and show yourself lots and lots of grace
Going to gym and using gym equipment to workout is great BUT no access to it shouldn't be an excuse. .
I mentioned some days ago, my focus is on my thighs and this what I came up with this evening 'staircase squat with double resistance bands'.
Put on a resistance band (better 2) and squat up and down the stairs until you max out. It sets gluteus and quads on fire. For me, it was more hard than doing squat with 60kg barbell.
Yall I benched 150 today which is 20lbs over my bw and im so mad that I didn’t get it on video but so impressed with myself because that wasn’t the plan today and I saw Jesus mid rep but that’s okay and I did it without music or pre workout I just want to be able to bench my boyfriend #itssupposedtobedeloadweek
