Happy New Year!
Have you made any resolutions? What are your goals?
My big goals include working on my mindset. I have been learning and experiencing the power of the mind. It can be your biggest ally if you allow it.
When I was in high school, I joined the track team and on of my coaches used to say, "It's all mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."
Over the years, I have come to learn how true this is. We are often forced to face difficulties in life, whether emotional, physical, financial, social, etc. Sometimes it can feel like our world is coming to an end. However, with a little faith and trust (and pixie dust), and a whole lot of hard work and determination, we can overcome the mountains we face. I have learned that there is often a higher purpose to our challenges. If we don't mind those challenges and look at them as learning/growing opportunities, we can overcome them and come out stronger than before. And we can often use what we've learned to help others.
So, keep your chin up and look for the good in all around you. Fill your heart with gratitude and keep working for your dreams.
In the meantime, keep hitting your workouts. It's a great time to prove to yourself that you are strong and that you CAN do hard things!
This month we are focusing on lighter weights and higher reps. Aim to complete 1-4 rounds of 20 reps per exercise on each of the strength training days. Hang in there and do what you can!
Welcome in the new year. And welcome all the opportunities it will bring!
