The topic this week: what are you scared of that seems to be holding you back?
Why is this holding you back and what must you do to get over it?
I have over come many fears in my lifetime, but it seems with each new fear that I conquer another one creeps in. Perhaps this is normal and we cannot live without any fear as humans. But I do know this: I lived in fear of failure for 10 years being over weight and unhealthy. I will not live with that fear any longer and I did over come it. But again with slaying that fear brought new ones.
I fear I am not being a good partner and mom when I go off to train as much as I do. I workout 7 days a week and I switched to early AM workouts to avoid missing too much family time. I have tried to combat this fear with those habits and it is helping.
I fear that I will fail. period. With that failure this girl will come back and haunt me:
Every day when I look in the mirror I see her, and it is like a ghost that haunts me. I picture her before I head out for a workout, and when I feel like skipping one I remember her. When I feel an urge to binge creep in I look at her and remind myself of how close she can get if I am not careful. Honestly I live in fear of that girl every damn day.
And that is the hardest fear to over come. And that is why I fight so hard.
Wow this one was hard to admit....
What do you fear? How do you deal with it?
