Good luck to Sabrina Moore today @innerstrengthuk
Sabrina competes in the Classic British Bench Press Championship around 10:30am this morning WATCH LIVE FEED HERE 👇👇👇 https://livestream.com/britishpowerlifting/classicbenchpress2018
Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not the muscles! Sabrina certainly has it inside and out!!! Sabrina has been bench pressing her lil butt off since her Achilles injuries last year taking her out of the game on the lower body lifts.
Since the start of 2018 she has been focused and dieting to make her weight category today. Enjoy that donut 🍩 after the lift Sab 😉
Sab has shown true resilience and been a massive soldier battling adversity in her career as an athlete and Personal Trainer.
Resilient people look at a problem and immediately ask ‘what’s the solution to that? What is this trying to teach me? How can this help me grow?
Sabrina’s showed massive #resilience ....her bench press and mental toughness has certainly got stronger as a result of her injury!!! Good luck today Sabrina, we will be cheering you on from a far 👊👊💪🏻💪🏻 #classicbenchpress#strength#resilience#thatgirl#iamthatgirl#thatgirltraining#strongwomen#powerlifting#powerliftingwomen
✨Been thinking a lot about COURAGE and CONSISTENCY this week ✨
What kind of courage does it take for me to show up consistently? How can I consistently be courageous? ::
As a Mum? Wife? Friend? Daughter? Creative Entrepreneur? Biz partner? Citizen?
What kind of self care do I need to sustain this? ::
What helps you be courageous? What helps you be consistent?
Thank you #mayaangelou#catalystwoman#changemakingwoman#courage#feelthefearanddoitanyway#keeponkeepingon
The most pervasive myth in health change is that the problem is the problem.
We seek to fix our stress with more relaxation.
We seek to fix our diet with food change.
We seek to will ourselves to exercise more.
We seek to fix our sleep, our pain, our dis ease by affecting the thing.
Yet most often our efforts see a short term change before we revert back to norm.
Either that or the beliefs at the root of the symptom leeks out into some other part of our lives.
We fix our diet only to become a heavy drinker.
Our we fix our exercise only to become a binge eater.
Because the thing is not the thing,
the thing is symptom itself.
The thing, the symptom is a result of the values, belief, perception and stories that make up who you are.
They change every day with interaction, realisations and new experiences.
To take control of your health is to step outside of them and begin consciously directing them towards where you wish to go.
The more we seek to change the symptom the further entrenched we become in the idea the both we and our efforts are hopeless.
We can get too serious in our quest to live well and I’ve seen so many posts about how bad certain foods and alcohol are for us recently and yet when we are truly in alignment with ourselves we have no great fear of not getting it right we are simply enjoying the ride and trusting in the 80/20 rule.
Being human is not about being perfect it’s about knowing your mind but choosing to live from your own heart and soul.
Live your own life well and choose joy not ‘abstinence’ in order to stay well and always stay close to what makes you glad to be alive ... it’s simple when you trust not fear and that always requires a regulated central nervous system and an open heart. Wellbeing is far more complex than just food and exercise.
As humans we were inherently taught to seek the approval of others, to put others before ourselves and to seek connection. And yet often in our quest to do this we lose sight of our own joy and our own why and perhaps more importantly our connection with ourselves.
Staying true to ourselves can become incredibly hard when remaining in the belief that we are worthy based upon the perception of others .. that and our own desire to be loved.
The truth is however is that we cannot be truly loved by anyone until we fully accept and love ourselves and when we do this we become the diamond within.
Dream big but never chase the ‘dream’, simply trust that when you shine in the storm the life you deserve is within your reach ...and when you are in alignment with yourself you attract souls that also see the beauty within.
And no matter what ... Never lose sight of you because with self-love comes integrity,honesty and grace and with this comes the right kind of love that you deserve.
