Today was a cardio day and I am a sweaty mess 💦 5X20 KB swings (I used 15 and 20lbs) followed by 20 minutes on a cardio machine (I use the treadmill/elliptical on the highest level of incline or the rower) and holy crow, I am beat 😴 I had a chocolate croissant and plain iced coffee from @starbucks pre-workout followed by this lovely smoothie post (same from yesterday). Happy Tuesday y’all! #cardioday#girlswholift#stronglifts5x5#dead#foodbalance#liveyourlife
Repost from @mindfulcounseling. This week on my new journey I'm digging deep to uncover my limiting beliefs. Beliefs that are holding me back from what I'm truly capable and want in life. Once I uncover all this negativity, I'm going to rewrite them into positives to shape a healthier mindset and well being for my future. Reading her caption couldn't be more right. Here's what she said: ・・・
We overcompensate where we are most vulnerable. We mask the parts of us that we think are unacceptable. We front and try to look perfect, when really we need authenticity and self-compassion.
Where’s your shame? 🙏🏼 What areas feel scary and vulnerable? Do you notice that’s where you wear a mask of perfection? Do you see anxiety and extra effort go where you’re most insecure?
Perhaps see perfectionism as a distraction from dealing with the emotions and beliefs surrounding that area. 💕 Allow yourself grace and compassion in this exploration, it’s tender. Start testing the waters of owning your humanness and being cool with ALL of you. 💯 Acceptance is the name of the game here, by acknowledging and allowing for the messiness, you can really access self acceptance.
I promise you’re not alone. We all gotta sift through the layers of self to reach consciousness and mindful living. I actually find it fun and exciting to do the hard work to then come through feeling empowered and enlightened. I suggest marinating on deep stuff like this in meditation🧘🏼♀️. I always have breakthroughs when I allow the feelings to just simmer. Get curious about your inner process without judgment. Lmk what comes up for you as you soak it all up. ✌️#therapythoughts
