I've been thinking about support a lot the last couple of days with a bit of heartache.
Yesterday on the 80 Day Obsession Facebook group page (the fitness program I'm doing), someone made a post that said "Any one else have an unsupportive husband" and comments flooded, one in particular that made me tear up! She said her dad was making fun of her. It broke my heart.
Growing up my mom put me down literally every time I wanted to try something new, almost sabotaging my attempts to figure out how to do things on my own, even if she wouldn't help me pay for it or give me a ride. Gymnastics, soccer, you name it. When I did get to participate, her comments hurt me. I had that voice in my head for a long time. I never went hard for anything until I decided I wanted to go to college. Even though she said "you don't want to do that, do you?" I just had enough. I now hold a Masters degree.
I told my fiancé about that post and it's comments. He just said "I support you". I told him I kinda wanted to go to the company's annual summit and celebrate the success I know I will have pushing myself through this program. I said I don't really have a hobby anymore but these programs and the people I get to interact with are so fun, I feel my best when I participate in all stuff that comes along with being a part of a team. He said "I support you". I'm just so very lucky to have him❤️ I'd love to be a coach and help encourage the un-encouraged, people who feel like I felt at 9, writing my mom a list of why I should be in soccer.
She bought me a soccer ball and said if I was good at it I could play. I sprained my ankle... she never let me be coached first.
I don't know what I'm doing or what will come of this. But, today, I bought a ticket to summit and a plane ticket to get there. If anything, I'm happy I get to decide what makes me happy and what I want to do to fill my cup and most importantly that I have people in my life who love to see me happy.
If you ever feel like you have no one rooting for you, l do! Please, support the dreams and goals of those you love, especially those of the children in your life❤️
New workout program from the woman who helped me lose 30 pounds last year. Even tough I found 15 of those pounds over the last 3 months (damn you santa), I'm just ready to put my heart and soul into something again. Im not perfect, just trying to be consistent and kick a goal where it counts. I'm looking forward to this so much.
It's my first time working with bands, and oy! My abs are screaming, and I like it!!Evelyn might like them more than I do. But tomorrow, my little tornado, I'm working out BEFORE you wake up. .
