How I push through the hard days.

I used to just crumble on hard days. I would put the pillow over my head and hope for a better tomorrow. Until I realized nothing would change unless I changed it, and that includes my mindset.
Truth is, we are the only ones that can change our life, our day, our minute. No one can or will do it for us. So I learned to argue with myself.

I acknowledge my feelings and emotions. I write them down.
I have cramps.
My head hurts.
I am tired.

Then I write down the solution.

I have cramps, but I will feel better after I stretch and move my body.
My head hurts, but I will feel better after I hydrate myself and fuel my body with a healthy meal.
I am tired, but once I have some green tea/ or coffee/ or my morning energy drink I will start waking up and feeling better.

I take  deep breath and say: " I am so thankful for another day to get better . " and 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.... I get up and start moving. I got that trick from the 5 second rule by Mel Robbins. It works.

I have a rule that I am not allowed to do ANYTHING until I get my workout in. I HAVE to do it first thing. Some days I KILL that workout, other days I barely crawl across the finish line. I just have to show up and do my best THAT DAY, one move at a time.

30 minutes later I have finished what will probably be the hardest thing I face that day. I walk through the day lighter, proud, and confident.

That right there is my equation for being my own hero. Give it a shot. If you need help finding a workout program, I have got ya covered, just hit me up! momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com
