Have you ever felt that you are not fit? Maybe you are working out hard, lifting weights, putting on muscle and trying to do the right things we just don’t feel fit. But is it that we are not fit or that we are mentally stuck in what we think feeling fit looks like?
It can be easy to get a picture of what we think “fit” looks like. We think that being in shape looks like someone we look up to, or our muscles aren’t what they should be and we end up getting frustrated or depressed about it.
As I said in today’s podcast, we are typically the worst judges of ourselves, we are far harder on ourselves than we should be. Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t push yourself hard, but rather than constantly looking at where you are not, look at where you are. Look at where you’ve come from. Look at how much more you are lifting than what you used to do.
You should have a clear goal of where you want to be, but remember that there is no elusive peak of fitness, there is always a way to become better, to become stronger, so don’t feel like you just are not there, you will always need to work to be better, and that’s okay.
