It’s funny how your mindset/thinking can change without you even realising! Last night I went to bed about an hour and a half later than I usually do, as I had a bit of a full-on day which meant I said down to eat later than normal and then that had a knock-on effect for the rest of the evening. Anyway, January Rachel would have binned off the gym this morning knowing that she would be tired this morning from a shorter night’s sleep & that this morning would be a rush as it was a uni day.
However, last night despite going to bed later I still planned to get up at my usual time and crack on with it and that’s exactly what I did, got up and on it! Packed my bags with my work clothes, prepped all my food and headed to the gym for the 6.30am class.
No excuses, no mind goblins complaining about lack of sleep, no negative self-talk I almost felt back to my usual self of a few years ago when I went the gym hell or high water week in week, week out without missing a workout.
If I’m honest, it felt amazing and I’m hoping that I continue to have this mindset as I get shit done when I’m in this frame of mind.
The only whoops moment from today was that I actually forgot my towels to shower! Luckily I hadn’t gotten into the shower before I realised my error and did a wet wipe wash instead, not as nice or refreshing as a shower but it did what it needed to do, I probably smell now but who cares!!
The rest of the day went in a flash and before I knew it was time to head home. Getting home there was a small parcel on the doormat, I was racking my brain to remember if I’d ordered something from somewhere but alas, on opening it it was a lovely small gift from a very good friend, over the last few weeks I’ve been hatching a plan for a new business and asked some trusted friends to act as a sounding board for my ideas/plans and this gift was to wish me luck in this venture, I was truly touched by the thoughtfulness of the gift. It’s something I would do for my friends and am still surprised when people do it for me, I still struggle with feelings of worthiness and self-love so gestures like this really touch my heart.
