In the fall of 2015, it's like this lightbulb went off in my head and I finally said that I was ready. I was committed to putting in the work. Joining the Warrior Women Quest in January elevated my experience because I was able to focus not just on the physical, but the mental, spiritual and emotional dimensions.
I had some pretty firm goals for myself.
The first one was that I committed to working out six days per week. As for my nutrition, I plan all of my meals a month in advance, I track what I eat, and allow myself wine and treats in moderation on the weekends.
I entered the quest thinking that my number one goal was to lose weight. But really making some strong fitness intentions allowed me to shift my priorities to "how fit can I be" rather than "how much weight can I lose"? And I have found that as I focus on the fitness goals that the weight is coming off.
Something really shifted in me when I explored my limiting beliefs through the Warrior Quest. When I dug deep, I realized that I didn't believe that I was capable of running a 10K or competing in Femsport because I was never good at sports in school.
I never felt coordinated enough, fast enough, or good enough and those insecurities have stuck with me. What this community has given me is a place where I feel safe and confident just as I am. I am learning to love and accept my body and as I have done that it has been surprising me with just how capable it is!
I've just registered for Boogie the Bridge 10k and I'm competing in Femsport this May! These are things I would never have thought I was capable of physically, had I not done the work emotionally. Thanks to being surrounded by uplifting and supportive women, and thanks to Sabrina for believing in me, I now believe in myself.
