YOU’RE your ONLY LIMIT. You Have The Power To Make The IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE.

YOU’RE your ONLY LIMIT. You Have The Power To Make The IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE.

Yes, I know.

Sometimes, it’s hard to get out of bed after a weekend of partying, delish food & perhaps some alcohol (Oops!), let alone muster up the willpower to get your butt to the gym.

TELL ME ABOUT IT.

I won’t lie, today, it was a bit harder to get out of bed at the crack of dawn (as I always do) & the thought of squatting/doing crunches/push-ups & lifting weights, or anything for that matter was nauseating. LITERALLY.

Then I got up (an hour & a half later than usual, BUT WHO CARES!), had breaky & mustered up the courage to get my booty to the gym & I DID.

As I pushed through the class (which was slightly harder to get through today), the thoughts of squatting/doing crunches/push-ups & lifting weights were no longer thoughts BUT ACTIONS, continuous ones I pulled off until the end of the class.

BUT HOW ON EARTH DID I GET MYSELF TO THE GYM IN THE FIRST PLACE?

For me, on the days when I’m just not feeling it: 

I remind myself of how AMAZING I feel after a workout:

The adrenaline rush.

The feeling of accomplishment & success.

The pride & strength.

The burst of energy.

&

Most of all, the feeling that because I am recovered, I now have the strength, ability, drive, energy, determination & permission to do something my illness deprived me of for so long.

Working out is (one of) my ways of telling anorexia that while she held a tight grip & strong control over me for a year or two, that grip & control was only temporary.

It wasn’t strong enough to:

Take my life away.

Destroy my passion.

Put out the fire in my soul.

OR

Enslave me to the point of worship.

So my loves, ALL THIS TO SAY:

On days when it’s a little harder for you to get out of bed & when it seems impossible to get up & workout…

REMIND YOURSELF OF HOW YOU’LL FEEL ONCE YOU DO & OF WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

At the end of the day, ONLY YOU CAN PUSH YOURSELF.

YOU’RE your ONLY LIMIT.

Limits are SELF-IMPOSED.

You’re confined only to the walls you build yourself.

KEEP ALL THAT IN MIND & know that, it’s true what they say:

It always seems impossible till it’s done.

Push yourself.

Exceed your limits.

Break down your walls.

MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE.
