Why is it when we are always on such a roll our motivation slowly starts slipping out the window? By slipping I mean like an ice drop slowly starts to melt and then BANG hits the ground fast and hard.
Like dude, come back, I need you! Please don’t leave me – like the needy wifey I am.
As females we work in waves.
A cycle even.
Hit rock bottom – realise no one will drag our sorry asses out and so we pull our badass self back into the game.
Work the game – hard – full force – ain’t no one gonna mess with us.
See results, feel good – like really good – why the f*ck did we let ourselves hit rock bottom? B*ches I’m fabulous!!!
Get comfortable. More comfy than trackies, Netflix and chocolate on a Sunday.
Slowly start to let old habits kick in – One cheat meal doesn’t matter, I only missed two training sessions this week, my pants defiantly shrunk in the wash, that was a bad camera angle, my scales are out. (Seriously! #denial)
Hit rock bottom – blame events/people but after a while realise it was us. No one to blame but us.
Go back to the top and repeat the process.
Why does this happen? To everyone – I see it all the time – NO I don’t even see it I BLOODY DO IT!
Why is it so hard to stay on top – I just want to dominate the world, eat healthy, continue to grow, learn and become successful, train amazing women to reach their goals, lift weights, have a hot AF body and an awesome social life all whilst keeping my house clean and patting as many dogs as I can along the way… OH and making sure I know when I’m ovulating because the last thing I need right now is a bloody child, wait when was the last time I got my period? Was there dairy in my lunch? Remember I can’t eat dairy because it f*cks me up. Did I reply to those messages? Damn it I have to stop past the super market and get dog food I forgot to feed the dogs last night – will that make me a bad parent? What if I forget to feed my children? Shit I’ve left that load of washing in the machine for two days – did I take my supplements? Maybe I should start meditating more, that might help me sleep better, I wonder why I’m not sleeping? Am I stressed? There are people dying in the world – I’m not stressed. I need to drink more water tho – my pee is so yellow. I should really look after myself better. How long has the heater been turned on for? Our gas bill is going to be so high. I don’t think I’ve washed my hair for a week – did I do the pays this week? Man I’m tried – I must have an iron deficiency, I should really look into that. God damn it I forgot to get toilet paper while I was at the super market. Tissues it is. What did Matt ask me to do again? Sh*t I had ONE job why can’t I remember?!
There it is.
No wonder my body is like ‘bitch please’ – I feel like I need a nap now just after writing that sentence.
Is your brain bouncing around like a 3 year old child jacked up on red lollies at a birthday party?
Like a 3 year old child jacked up on lollies in a jumping castle that’s about to vomit absolutely everywhere?
YOU ARE ONE PERSON.
Seriously – one person.
It might be a simple thing like ‘eat healthy’ but the reason you fall off the wagon and loose motivation is because to your brain that’s the least fricken important thing right now.
So how do we over come vomit brain and jump out of the vicious cycle?
You know what to be completely honest I’m not entirely sure yet.
What I do know is that what ever you are doing, you’re doing a badass job at it – wether you realise it or not.
DW if you’re at rock bottom right now you’ll come back up – you got this – you don’t need ‘fixing’ you need a trophy for juggling as much as you have, for as long as you did.
It’s a fact of the cycle – you’ll pull yourself out, dust yourself off and put that crown back up on your head, you amazing human you.
Stay Strong & Stretch,
