Yes we can! At the beginning of the session everyone said their “I can’t” phrases. We all found similarities in them - I can’t finish the workout because it’s too hard or I can’t get up early because I’m too tired. I’m sure a lot of people can relate to those two excuses, right? Kim read a quote from Henry Ford that really stuck in my mind: Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.” It’s so important to have your mental game right before you can move forward with other things.
I’m typically a very positive person. I believe that positive thoughts lead you to be surrounded by positive people. If you want something, you’ve got to put that positive energy out there. I know it kind of sounds “new age” or “crunchy” but I really believe this. Never dwell on the negative, always focus on the positive.
I’m also a very goal oriented person. If I set a goal, it’s unlikely that I won’t make it. I’ve committed myself to this 8 week program. I’ve committed myself to eating healthy for 8 weeks (and beyond). And while it’s only the end of the second week, I’m still going strong and have no intentions of giving up or slacking off.
