When I say it doesn’t happen overnight, it’s from that painful place of experience. I KNOW what it feels like to want to snap your fingers and get the quick fix. I KNOW how hopeless it feels to not even want to try, because you always quit everything. I KNOW how hard it is to keep working, keep going when you’re not seeing the results you think you should be seeing. But I also KNOW the invisible mental health results (that DO happen quickly), the increased energy and boosted mood. I KNOW the tear filled joy, pride, shock and satisfaction of seeing and FEELING all that labor finally come to fruition.
It took me FOUR months to complete my first program. Four months of new motherhood, going back to work full time, figuring out our new life, and trying to find time for myself. Four months of MAKING time for myself, fitting in 15 and 20 minute workouts whenever I could, using Audrey as my weights more often than not. Four months of modifying EVERY MOVE, pressing pause ten times as much as I pressed play.
It wasn’t perfect, it wasn’t pretty. But it was CONSISTENT. I JUST. KEPT. SHOWING. UP. FOR. MYSELF.
I made the decision that I wanted more. I wanted better than where I was. Then I got to freaking WORK. This is not easy. It’s not meant to be. It’s meant to challenge you AND change you, for the better..How are your quick fixes panning out? For me, they never did. Maaaaybe for a hot second here and there, but if you’re not improving the underlying thoughts + behaviors, the quick fix results will NEVER last #truthlove#sorrynotsorry
Your thoughts create your actions, your actions create your reality. Ergo, change your thoughts, change your reality. Need help with this? Check out ‘Get Fit With Jess’ above 🤗💪🏻
