Monday Morning Rambles: We ALL Have A Struggle...

A couple of days ago an old client who moved away reached out to me for some advice. She had been working with a new trainer and unfortunately it wasn't a good match and she made the tough decision to part ways with this individual. It got her to think of when she trained with me and the connection that we had (we had a great banter).

We continued to talk and she shared with me that everyone seems to "get it" (living a healthy lifestyle) and she is always struggling. I reminded her that we ALL have struggles and she said something that hit me in the gut "You make it look so easy".

I felt like such a sh*t because the last thing that I want to do is make it look simple. The reason for this site is to share my story, my strengths, and of course my personal struggles. One thing that I am guilty of and I believe most of us are; is only sharing the highlights of my life on instagram.

On IG you will find me sharing my last great workout or a delicious meal that I cooked up but I don't truly share the dark moments. The times when I am in the supermarket and the little voice in my head tells me to get ice cream, fully knowing that I shouldn't because of my Binging Disorder and I still go ahead and do it...and naturally beat myself up for it. Making the cycle continue. 

Yesterday in class, we spoke of Joy and Grief and how they are both caused by comparison (either to another moment or perhaps a person); which is something that I deal with on a daily basis because of the industry that I work in. I find myself always comparing my physical appearance to other trainers or members at my gym and this is something that I need to work on and eventually stop doing. I asked a coworker/friend if she deals with this as well and she said that she does but she reminds herself that this is her journey and not theirs...

Repeat after me "This is MY Journey"

Before I end this post, I want to challenge you to share your truth on social media. I am not saying to be a "Debbie downer" but be more open about your life. We need to drop the filters on our life and share the truth...


Namaste...
