Fitness Meme of the Week: Don’t tell yourself it’s “hard.” Tell yourself it’s POSSIBLE.

An original fitness meme from Every48 to help you start your Friday:

This is the mantra that helped me change my life. (The beautiful image for this meme is courtesy of samuiblue at FreeDigitalPhotos.net; the words are an Every48 original!)

I’ll riff on this idea in a longer post sometime soon, but this is my all-time favorite “a-ha” moment in the six years since deciding I had to put my health first or risk having the rest of my life be a shadow of what was possible. When we tell ourselves something is hard before we ever get started trying to do it, we might give up before we ever catch our stride. Replace the word “hard” with the word “possible,” and see what happens to your energy, your grit, and your passion.

Have a great Friday. See you next week.

Recent #Every48 workouts: I’ve been down with a cough and cold all week, and used it as an excuse for a little too much comfort food and lack of enthusiasm. I did get out for a WALK yesterday in the early-fall Seattle sunshine (!) and I’m committing, right here and right now, to getting fully back in the game as much as I can today. If I can’t work out because I’m still sniffling, I’ll still eat well and rest well and stretch and maybe even pop in a gentle yoga video this afternoon.
