Grand Uprising Kings and Queens. Today’s #WordForTheDay is “Push Thru”
Life has a way at presenting many different challenges and obstacles within our pathway. Its easy to get frustrated with all the challenges being presented to us especially when they seam to be affecting our progress of where we are trying to go in life and what we are working to achieve.
I encourage all my brothers and sisters out there to commit today. Commit to “Push Thru” whatever is put in front of your pathway. Whatever your goal is, whatever you are working to achieve I encourage you to commit to your success at all cost. Promise yourself that no matter what you will “Push Thru”. No matter how long it takes. No matter what challenges come your way.
Don’t spend any energy focusing on the challenges and set backs that you perceive. Focus your energy on plowing through any and every challenge that is put before you. “Push Thru” until you get to where you want to go. Make success your only option.
The road closure signs are up for my next race, the Ferriby 10 mile.
I marshalled last year as it’s organised by my club, but I’m looking forward to running it this year

#tbt For the last #5 #years I’ve had the #Privilege to help #ordinarypeople do things they thought they could never do. I’m absolutely in #Love with helping people create better versions of themselves. This picture was taken #2013 I believe????? This was the reason I started running #spartan races. These #women ran this race representing #freddylivefitness on their backs. The chills I got from seeing them turn the corner to the #finishline is something I will never forget. I was so proud of them, I had #goosebumps . Proud of the fact that these ordinary every day women, mothers, teachers, office workers etc. took this challenge to push themselves to limits beyond their wildest #dreams and I had a part of that. #february#3rd I will be celebrating five years in the business. I would LOVE to have all old, current, new clients and anyone that would like to join us. Everybody is welcomed. We will be celebrating with a FREE class, catered breakfast, and taking a small clip for Channel 5 eye-opener!

Do you ever make excuses for yourself? Or justify why its okay to not follow through with what you’ve committed to doing. No one will know, right? After all, you have a lot going on.
How often are these your thoughts?
Sometimes as I’m running, I make compromises with myself. I tell myself, its okay to trim a few minutes off this run. I don’t need to push myself that hard. I’ve been training so hard for the half marathon that it’s okay to cut back just a little.
This isn’t the TRUTH though.
In reality, if I don’t stick to my training schedule I will ultimately set myself up for failure. I don’t know about you, but I’m a pretty big fan of accomplishing what I’ve set out to do.
The trouble is this is exactly the kind of mindset that leads to trouble. When you begin to make excuses for yourself, you justify your lack of action.
You are now on a slippery slope back into the exact problem you were trying to change. You will never accomplish anything if you decide to give up and quit. You don’t want that to happen, do you? Then, don’t let it!
Here are some of my tips to keep you on track, *|FNAME|*: 1. Hold yourself accountable or ask someone supportive in your life to check in with you to help stay responsible.
2. Follow through with what you’ve outlined for yourself.
3. See these trains of thought for exactly what they are, ways of being sidetracked from your success.
4. Re-connect with why you decided you wanted to make this change in the first place.
5. Challenge yourself just a little bit more and find a way to turn up your effort ever so slightly. For example, on days when I want to give less, I often add an extra minute or more to those runs.
So, what could you do?
Sometimes life shouldn't be taken seriously, have some fun. Don't be like these men who had fun at the expense of the ladies but still on still, have fun, be happy. Life is too short. #Going9Yards#FinishLine#Gratitude
