If your passion’s dwindled, you have permission to make a change.
I feel strong in new ways.
I used to feel strong hoisting a heavy barbell over my head. Feeling my hips propel it off the ground and into perfect position overhead.
I still feel excited when I think about that.
Worry about how much money’s in the bank
Complain to your best friends over lunch about the suffering you’re enduring
That’s okay. I’ve been there too. And now I’m choosing new patterns, links and associations. You can too.
Are you chronically dehydrated (and completely unaware)?
I was, and many athletes are. We drink enough water. That’s not why we’re dehydrated. We’re dehydrated because:
We don’t take in enough minerals/electrolytes
We drink most of our beverages cold
We love us some caffeine before a workout and some alcohol after a hard week of training
Some days, I don’t even WANT to know how much time I spend on my phone. There are times when hours pass by and all I’ve done is play with Snapchat filters, check Instagram or look at random Buzzfeed articles titled “17 Time the Internet Nailed What Being in your Thirties is REALLY Like.” What’s a random article you’ve read lately?
A super nourishing and slightly spicy butternut squash soup made with bone broth.
Forget what the Insensitive Happiness Guru said. I give you permission to feel low until you’re done feeling that way.
