More Than Nothing Mindset

Not long ago, June 10th actually, I embarked on a new fitness adventure called Street Parking. A friend of mine suggested I follow them when everything went to chaos earlier in the year (don’t need to really give that any more time here). I did and, at first, thought to myself, that looks fun but am I ready for it?

A few days before I joined, they shared the 30lb transformation of one of their members. After losing 50lbs over the last year and 30lb additional pounds being my BIG goal, I knew I had to give it a shot.

The SP catch phrases of #morethannothing and #consistencyiskey lowered my intimidation level to ZERO. I told myself I could do those two things, at the very least, and see where I was after a few months.

Well, it only took a few days for me to realize that not only was this something I could commit to…I WOULD ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!

 

In Mid July, they announced an August challenge…something a former version of me would have excused my way out of BUT I signed up the first day, not fully knowing what I was getting myself in to.

Here I am, DAY 2, already knowing that this challenge will be a GREAT thing for me and look where I am!!!! Here!!! Sharing it with you!!!!

Not only are the SP catch phrases great for health and wellness motivation, you can apply them to other areas of your life and I’m excited to get my creative energies back in shape using them!!

And NOW…the reason for this post!!

One of the weekly Points goals is a sharing mindfulness post. This week we are asked to talk about what we think our biggest challenges will be with the goals set aside for us.

  1. Supporting Teammates
  2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
  3. No Alcohol
  4. Veggies

 

There have already been so many, incredible and vulnerable posts about this topic and I am thrilled to add mine to the mix.

If you had caught me a year ago, the only thing I would say I had no problem with is cheering people on because one of my strengths has always been believing in others 🙂 and as I mentioned earlier, my overall health has taken an upswing, so, the hydration and veggies are no problem and my alcohol has been on the decline for years, though I doubt it’ll ever go away completely 😉

So, in thinking on what I would add to this weeks challenge, I realized I could focus and speak to the word “mindfulness”.

  1. Supporting my Teammates- Yes, I am a natural cheerleader but am I actively listening to what my teammates are saying!? Is there something else I can offer besides a like or high five?
  2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate- For MONTHS I have thought, JUST GET IT IN and GET IT DONE! I am going to add a prayer of gratitude to each sip I take, knowing that it is doing great things for my body!
  3. No Alcohol- I’ve, admittedly, had a “I do what I want” approach to this for over a decade now…What, exactly, have I been trying to prove? I am not sure but for the rest of the month, I am going to try to figure out why I’ve had an attitude about it and LET THAT SHIT GO!
  4. Veggies- This is another area where I’ve said “it doesn’t matter if you like it, get it done” and that is not really fair to the food is it!??? I get bored but stuck in my head and in patterns. I am going to try and have fun with this…Actually enjoy adding more green to my life. It’s my favorite color after all.

 

AHHHHH! I knew it! In getting all of this out of my head, I noticed something! Do you see it!?!

If I get stuck in a pattern, sure, I am completing tasks BUT am I present in the moments, realizing how good I feel and how good it is for me!? Am I remembering to smile and bring all of that increased energy to my heartspace!?!?  AM I REMEMBERING TO SHARE THAT JOY!?!?!?!

 

OK! I think I’ve got my game plan now!

Thanks for follwing along! Have a GREAT TUESDAY!!
