My Thoughts: 11 more to go!

So we have just done our first month and to be honest I'm pretty proud of myself. I cut meat completely out of my diet and stick to drinking lemon water everyday - Well Beyonce said Lemonade, but I'm not too keen on sugar in my tea! On the flip, my exercise regime has taken a dip. I love running but find it extremely difficult to be consistent! I go and run for say three even four days, I push myself, beat targets and then I stop. It's like this invisible wall pops up and I can't understand why.

Overcoming obstacles

And then it came to me, I don't like failure. I'm pretty poor at managing it. Whenever I push myself, and I beat my target, the next time I go, I need to do even better or I can't find it in me to go again. But it's all in the mind. For instance, I pushed myself, last year, and ran 5 miles over my longest run which ended up being a half marathon. Oh it killed and I was super proud, but when I went out to do a 3 mile run I found it extremely difficult.

You are not your body

What happens? Well, a voice - you know the one - comes up in my head and says, don't bother, it's not worth it, just stop! You've done it already you don't need to prove anything! Do it another time!

This voice is my nemesis. This voice belongs to me!
