Dear #NewGirl at the #Gym: You’re next to me in #bootcamp, on the treadmill or in spin. The look on ur face tells me ur #embarrassed u can’t do a pushup or don’t know how to adjust the bike.
You look around & wonder why u came. U glance at me & look away like you didn’t see me smile at you. U want to be #invisible. Maybe ur discouraged or think this was a mistake. U wonder if I’m judging u.
I AM NOT! I am wildly proud of you! I was just like u once and know how hard it is, esp in the beginning.
Maybe u woke up 1 day weighing 40lbs > 5 yrs ago. Been there.
Maybe u had a baby and wonder if you'll ever NOT have to tuck ur tummy into ur pants. Been there.
Maybe ur so out of breath during warm up that u wonder if a full hour will kill u. Been there.
Maybe 💵 and 🕰 are tight & #SelfCare feels selfish. Been there.
Most of us started just like u, so please don’t give up. I know it's hard, but it will get better. I promise!
One day you’ll wake up & wonder when you became THAT girl, the girl who can run miles or do a whole spin class w/o feeling sore. Then you’ll be the one smiling at the new girl, hoping she knows how brave she is & that she's worth all that work. Bc you were. And ARE!
You deserve to be your best, healthiest, most #confident self!
There might come a day when someone makes a rude remark or gives you that look. Maybe she’s never been overweight or eaten an entire pan of brownies alone (I have). Don’t waste your time on her. You‘re on a journey to be your #BestSelf, and she doesn’t belong in your world.
Heed #EleanorRoosevelt‘s words: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” So don’t give it to her. Don’t give her a 2nd thought. Focus on u and ur journey.
And if u need a little help... if u need someone to guide you, support you, & be on your side... if it helps to be accountable to someone else, check out my programs at http://newtritionny.com/oneonone.
My gift to you is a #FREECONSULTATION. In fact, I’m giving a #freebie to every one of you for the rest of Jan. DM me to schedule yours & see how good the #NEWYOU can look & feel.
