|This might get deep|
See what I did there? Humor - cutting the tension since the day I was born.
What is this deep shit? Glad you asked. I am reading my first self-help book. Ever. This book is changing my life one page at a time.
|I literally could not love this more|
If you have not read it or do not own it - GET IT. NOW. I got my copy on Amazon. $9.
Ok, now that you have ordered this book, let me tell you what I am learning about myself. I self-sabotage. Currently I am self-sabotaging my weight loss (mostly that chub that keeps lingering around). It's weird. I want to loose fat so badly. I'm tired of gaining, pants not fitting, the way I look in pictures, the jiggle that happens when I jump/run/pull.........I'm ready. I want this. So why am I failing? I do not fully believe that I CAN do this. Since I do not truly believe in myself - this is not the only area - I do little things that totally destroy my efforts. Then I win. I was right. See? I told you I couldn't do it.
Sad. So fucking frustrating.
So what am I going to do? A few things I have started to think about, implement, and get behind:
|Do you know it takes the same amount of energy to believe you are awesome or believe you suck?|
Do things I love
|Crossfit, lifting, family, friends|
Find a replacement for negative thoughts
Appreciate how special I am
Let the love in
|All of it|
Don't compare yourself to others
I actually sit on the couch with this book, a journal, and tears in my eyes. I love it. It was written for me. I am blown away by how relevant this is. I read it to Sam constantly - he promptly got the audio version. It was also his idea to journal while I'm reading this book. I'm not going to tell you everything, not even done with the book yet, some of it is just for me. Not everyone will take away the same things from this book, but I am packing a suitcase full of things I'm learning.
A world of badasses........what a wonderfully happy world!
