I thought I would be more nervous.
I had arrived 15 minutes early to meet with Coach on Tuesday last week. We had a 30 minute session to start my Olympic Lifting Training again after over a year off.
I decided I should snap a picture to mark the occasion.
After I snapped it (and posted it), I waited a minute…. expecting to need to clear my head before I went in.
But oddly, I felt no worry… it just felt like time to go.
Coach was all smiles when I walked in, and we had the place to ourselves.
I let him know where I was with strength training… and then we got into the warm up.
It honestly felt like I hadn’t left. The biggest difference I noticed was the empty space I had in my mind.
There was a calm (in between the sets) that wasn’t there before.
The awesome thing about 2017, was that I learned to stop...and care for myself first.
It was a chance to start over, and build all the elements of a mentally and physically healthy routine...in a way that felt good to me.
I told coach my main goal now, is to make Olympic Lifting something I practice (regularly) for as long as possible. I told him I enjoy it, and I think it’s fun...that I’d like to continue into my 40’s and 50’s and beyond.
It puts a smile on my face to think about being able to do it ten years from now.
So, that’s the goal for me.
I want to be settled into a rhythm that puts a smile on my face when I think about it.
I’ve changed my Job Title on LinkedIn. I have also finally chosen an elevator pitch.
I am a Mental & Physical Strength Coach. I help "stressed out" people find (and follow) a balanced diet and exercise program...that they enjoy.
I will be encouraging you to not just lift weights, but to meditate and stretch daily in a way that feels good to you.
Other than that, you will not notice too much difference.
I will still keep inviting you to get my book on Amazon or Kindle.
I will still keep inviting you to get Mai Trainer’s Free 365 Day Free Nutrition and Strength Training - weekly email series.
I will still keep you up to date on my new programs and training opportunities.
If you have a group looking for a health and wellness speaker, I have my Free Stress Management Workshop information here.
I’d love to speak to you about visiting your group!
Let 2018 be the year you stop...and care for yourself first.
It is a chance to start over, and build all the elements of a mentally and physically healthy routines...in a way that feels good to you!
Let me know what you think! :)
