I hear people say to me all the time, "I don't know how you stay so motivated!"
The truth is, I DON'T! There are days like today when I feel so completely overwhelmed with life that I want to curl up into a ball and hibernate. I begin to shut down, cut out the world, and start to give up hope. I skip my workouts and eat bad stuff. This time...it's been good food but lack of workouts.
I can list a million reasons why I'm stressed and suffering but I won't bore you. It won't help my situation and it brings negativity into your life. What I'm realizing as I get older is that I have to just take time away. I have to make sacrifices and make time for myself so that I can heal mentally and physically. There is nothing wrong with that and I can't feel guilty for taking time off. I can't beat myself up for giving my body the time and rest it needs.
Love yourself people!!! The good, the bad, the ugly! There is nothing wrong with that!
