Two topics today.
I did my accumulator workout and enlisted my 13 year old son to do it with me. I’m about 144 pounds more than him and he’s in sports so I figured that would be great. It also was a bonding process for us. But not in the way I would have thought.
He crapped out on me on round 4. It was stuff like, “when do we take a break?” LOL!! I loved it and thought he was going to his room and continue Xboxing but he actually stuck around and watched me. I think it was a surprise to him that I was able to do that. And even more surprising to me were two things I saw today. I was able to do a plank partially on my toes and I’m having a much easier time getting up off the floor. Yay!
Second topic. I’m not a huge Oprah fan and shy away from anyone that is self-serving. But she has this series with Anthony Robbins that I have been watching about identifying and changing your story.
We all have a story. It either keeps us as a victim or empowers us. My story for so long has been something along the lines of “because I was abused as a child, I can use that to be afraid of everything. It’s the reason I keep myself fat, sabotage relationships, blah blah blah.” I’ve decided to change my story. Today I feel like I’m over it. I am finding that way to change my emotional state when I need to get into the state of mind that I can call on when I am feeling fear.
Another thing I have heard lately from Randy is “Don’t believe the lie”. Whatever that lie is that we believe that keeps us trapped. Embrace the truth. Don’t believe the lie.
Tony Robbins is the bomb.
Do you have a story?
