Sup me from about a year ago 👀 Sometimes it's painful to post old photos.
Not because of how I looked. It's painful because I remember exactly how I felt. I graduated, wrapped up my 8 year speech and debate career, and got my first full time job within a matter of months. I was like HELL YEAH I've done EVERYTHING I wanted to do, now I have all the free time in the world I never had before to do all the things wooooooo.
Ya not so much 🤦
I was so excited by all my newfound free time and wanted to use it to achieve my fitness goals, but I couldn't stick to anything. Time and time again I would try, go a couple of weeks being consistent, then go off the deep end 🙃 It felt like overnight I went from priding myself on being the hardest worker I knew to feeling like my existence was meaningless - and honestly that's putting it lightly.
Today - sure, I feel lost sometimes (what else are your early 20's for), but I no longer deny myself the possibility of achieving everything I've envisioned for years. I do the work daily and love doing it. Most importantly, I stopped telling myself my goals were stupid and not meant for me.
I've said it before and I'll keep saying it - if you wake up thinking about something every single day, there's probably a reason why. Get to it.
💁👋🏼Rest day from the gym. Been an all work and no play kind of Saturday for me so far with catching up on office work and starting to get things organized to move. I can't believe we get the keys to our house in just over a week! 😁🎉#soexcited !!!
I hope you guys are all having an awesome weekend so far! ❤
