(PS: I need to re-re-re-watch the Sex and the City series!!)
As you may know, I joined Beachbody about a month ago. I decied to leave USANA and join BB because I love the workouts and thought it would be a nice addition to my own programs.
I also joined a challenge group. What that is, is a group of 5-10 ladies who all get together (on facebook), do the same program and support each other. As a coach, you offer support and motivation daily. You also check up and see if everyone did their workout of the day.
It was fun..until it wasn't.
We recently had our 60 days progress pic and I felt like shit. I felt bloated and yucky and the pic shows it!
As I looked at my 3 pics, side by side, I started feeling guilty. Guilty of not eating more salads, of not pushing myself hard enough with each workout, guilty of everything. I started going through everything that I ate and did in the past 2 months and started thinking of ways I could slim down quickly for the after pics that are coming up in 1 month...
I went back to a dark place that I promised myself I would never visit again.
This OBLIGATION to workout. This seeing food as calories that need to be burned. This feeling ashamed when I skip a workout or have fries with my supper. It creeped up on me. I never wanted to feel that again..and this program that should be helping me get healthy, got be obsessed and made me feel like shit!
Of course, there is nothing wrong with the program and I still love PiYo very much. But it's the SHOULD that got me all ...blah!
We have to stop should-ing all over the place!
We SHOULDN'T do anything that we don't really want to do. We SHOULDN'T feel like we HAVE to do something..especially when it's to please others (I don't care if I skip a workout or two, but my coach does!).
It's time to let go of the SHOULDA, WOULDA, COULDA and listen to our body.
The program doesn't know that you spent half the night with a sick kid. The program doesn't know that you don't really feel like taking the kids to the restaurant and wait until you get home to make yourself a salad. The program doesn't know you like YOU KNOW YOU!
Programs are there to guide you. You are there to make the final decision.
