The first one is my word for the year:
I have needed this one for some time. I need to believe in me! I need to believe that I am a strong, confident and intelligent woman. I doing great with this one.
The second one came to me one day when I was lifting:
I was at the gym and a nice lookin', toned woman came in to workout. I immediately started comparing myself with her and I was not measuring up. I then looked into mirror and reminded myself that I was just starting back and with time I would look better. I told myself that I was a "Work In Progress!" So that is how I stop myself from comparing now.
The third one came to me this weekend after a successful week of lifting:
I finally had gotten my 3 lifting sessions completed. I had a full week of running, biking and cardio. I was feeling good. Again, I started looking around at those strong women that are in my life, Coach J, Dr. C. and another body builder Erin Stern. I want to be like them but know I have a long way to go and even then I will be in different in my build. Again, I am trying to stop the comparisons so this came to me!
The fourth and final one has been in my life for a long time:
Whether it is said out loud or implied this one drives me harder than anything you can imagine. And in most cases, I get to say "Ha, guess you were wrong!" Maybe its the rebel in me but don't tell me I can't do something because I will prove you wrong! That is just how I am wired.
I don't know if any of these will help y'all but they are what is driving me right now. What quotes, sayings or words are driving you this year?
