In life, and in fitness, so much of success comes from just pushing through and getting yourself to the other side.
Because you have no other choice.
It’s this daily commitment to chipping away at your goals, one day at a time, until you’ve knocked a huge block off.
This strength challenge hasn’t been easy for me. I’ve been busting my ass at Uplift, taking several classes a week, picking up heavier weights, pushing myself harder.
I wasn’t seeing results, and I was frustrated. I talked to Michelle, began looking at the situation objectively, and started moving forward. It was all I could do.
In class yesterday, Kat said something about us being almost done with the challenge, that she could see the weariness on our faces.

BRB, time to go to sleep so I can keep getting stronger. This feels like the part of every marathon training cycle when it goes from being really hard to being really satisfying. This is when the fun happens. When I’m zeroed in on my goal, and all I can think of is the reasons I can, not the reasons I can’t.
Am I the only weirdo who feels this shift – when you really go big and zero in on your goals?
