Exciting news! I was recently asked to be a fitmixer Ambassador!!
Awhile back, you might remember, my friend Janetha sent me some of fitmixer’s products to try. I immediately fell in love with the vanilla protein powder and, soon after, accepted the company’s offer to become one of their brand ambassadors.
As a fitmixer Ambassador, I will write a monthly blog post about a specific health or fitness topic chosen by fitmixer, spread the word about the company and their products (fitmixer also offers bootcamps – the next one starts on September 10th), and host a bunch of giveaways for you guys to win some really great stuff. (If you want to buy some fitmixer products to try for yourself, my affiliate link is on the right side of my blog.)
This month’s fitmixer topic is geared toward saying goodbye to something that holds you back from achieving your health and fitness goals by writing a farewell letter and dismissing the issue from your life. It can be anything really””junk food, your love for sugar, negative thoughts, excuses, etc. I picked fear as the recipient of my letter.
I’ve recently come to realize that we have an unhealthy relationship. You’re always messing with me””never giving or benefiting me in anyway”” and it’s time for it to stop. You’ve always been a part of my life and probably always will, but when it comes to my fitness goals, we need to break up.
Now don’t pretend like you have no idea what I’m talking about. When I try something new at CrossFit or strive to PR at a road race, you fill my mind with doubt and make me believe I can’t do it. How are you able to get into my head like that? I don’t know how you do it, but you always seem to win.
I know you want me to stay the same and never change, but I really want to improve with my running and at CrossFit. Remember when we practiced Snatches at CrossFit a few weeks ago? You really beat me up that day. As soon as I started to increase my weight, you started to intimidate me, so I never achieved my goal. Ugh, your control prevents me from taking risks and bettering myself. This drives me crazy about you.
Fear, I know we’ve had this conversation a number of times in the past, but this is really it. The lies you tell me have no place in my life, and I won’t tolerate your dishonestly anymore. I have things I want to achieve, so I won’t keep letting you get in the way. So long, Fear, this is the end of our relationship.
