Every day I am reminded about how strong I am capable of being.
When I am walking, pedaling or pulling my weight at the rowing machine, I zone out. I take myself back to a place when on stage I was a fit, young woman with a stripper’s physique. Body parts didn’t sag and my belly was rock solid. With every step I see her – that gal with the stripper body – and I push myself a little harder.
We are all capable of pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zones. Questioning our limits can be a rewarding and healthy experience. I am grateful for the people at the gym (especially the senior citizens). Just by watching them, and visualizing myself in better shape, I push myself a little harder each time I work out. I can’t wait to peel off these layers of self-doubt and see where my focus takes me.
So tell me – what motivates and inspires you to push yourself beyond your comfort zone?
