I was just able to cross three (yes, THREE) things off my list of goals!
– Do planks on the floor (not only can I do planks on the floor…I can do mountain climbers on the floor…and reptiles, too)
– Do the ab dipper with straight legs (I can totally do this…not quite as many as with bended knees, but I *can* do it)
– 250 pounds (CHECK! I’m well into the 240’s right now!)
I also added a goal, which may seem a little peculiar:
– Trust myself
While working with Denise today she had me doing some new (challenging, very challenging) things. One was to jump up onto a raised platform. The other was to step up onto a workout bench. Both of these things scared me…to death. I was afraid to fall, afraid to hurt myself. Denise had all the confidence in the world in me, but I did not. I actually said out loud, “I do not trust myself to pull this off successfully.” It sounded *so* strange to hear that come flying out of my mouth…Denise thought so, too. So, I definitely need to work on trusting myself (because I actually did end up pulling both of those things off, by the way). Trusting my own abilities and not letting my own mind talk me out of doing things.
How is your list of goals coming along? Are you actively working toward accomplishing what you want most? Do you allow yourself to self-sabotage (talking yourself out of doing good things)?
