Every jab, cross, hook, upper cut is me fighting against the person I used to be. Don't ever think for a second that just because I workout every day that I don't struggle. Getting up early and working out is the easy for me. I got that part covered. It's the other stuff that I need to keep in check. I'm not genetically blessed with height nor a slim build. I've gotta work twice as hard and now that I'm 40, it's even harder. Along with other medical factors, including my age, losing weight and keeping it off has become a challenge. I have to push a little harder and constantly fight against the negativity in my head about what I should weigh and what I should look like.
I'm no longer in my 20s and my 30s are gone now. What worked in my 20s and 30s might not work now so adjustments must be made and I need to learn how to be kinder to myself.
So for now, I will continue to fight against my old self until I realize that the 200lb person that I THINK I see looking back at me in the mirror is a figment of my imagination. I am NOT 200 lbs anymore. That girl is gone!!!! Keep it real, and stay with the fight!!! #neveragain#nevergiveup#traininsane @thesoxbox @polarglobal @dailyburn #fitlife#aintgoingback#fighter#warrior#combat @mentalhealthamerica @endthestigmaorg #fitnessmotivation @northcoloniecsd @namicommunicate #thestruggleisreal#staywiththefight @albanytimesunion #aintnobodygottimeforthat
