The pain of staying the same
My dad and I entered the swimathon yesterday
To swim 5km
Which is 200lengths
I’ve done it before
It was so boring!!!
So why am I doing it again?
It’s not to raise money particularly
It’s not to feel good about myself
It’s because I need a target to work towards
And swimming is the activity that stresses out my body the least.
Since I had my bike accident about 2 years ago
My body has been a mess
I can’t sit down without extreme discomfort
But I can swim
I’ve been meandering a lot with my training in the last 6 months
Bitting and bobbing around
Because I was comfortable
Can you relate to that?
I was able to maintain my weight and my body shape
I was happy with it
But I have now reached a point where I am unhappy with my fitness level
I used to be ridiculously fit
About 18 months ago
I let that slide away
But that’s ok
I can just start again and build it back up
It will take time
But I have time
I have the rest of my life to aim to perfect my lifestyle balance
The thing that kicked me into gear though
Was finally accepting that the pain of changing, was less than the pain of staying the same
Do you feel that way too?
Sometimes we can know that we need to do something
Like exercise more
Or eat less junk
But until that pain of your reality becomes MORE than the pain of changing
Then you won’t do it!
And neither would I!
I’m not a super human…
So my reality is that I am now committing to a 5km swim
In about 3 months
I know I can do it
Because I’ve done it before
I imagine you can relate to that too??
You know that you can lose weight
Because you’ve done it before right!!!
Let me know when you feel that shift of pain
Change is painful
We like our habits just as they are
We are comfortable
But as soon as you become uncomfortable
Hit me up
And I’ll help you create an action plan
That doesn’t feel too overwhelming
So that change, won’t be so painful after all!
