Is your ‘fixed’ mindset preventing you from getting results?

Right out of college, I gained 25 pounds.⁠

Suddenly, life was so different. I was living in a new city, had a 40+ hour/week job, was commuting nearly 3 hours a day on public transportation… my cushy college life was over. No more dining hall salad bar, flexible schedule, ‘quick walk’ to the gym, or friends to exercise with.⁠

I was overwhelmed, stressed, and it felt like I just couldn’t get myself together.⁠

I’d skip the gym for happy hour…⁠

Try to turn a difficult day around with sugary cookies and muffins…⁠

Plop myself down on the couch in front of the TV (no workout) to unwind…⁠

One day of ‘messing up’ spilled over into the next and the next and the next. It was a vicious cycle.⁠

Eventually though, I grew tired of my own shit. Plus, none of my clothes fit.⁠

I decided the ‘fixed’ mindset I had, the one that said, “Well you can’t make it to the gym every day so why bother?” or “You’ve already had a cookie, why not have the rest of the pack?” was doing absolutely zero good.⁠

So, I adopted a ‘growth’ mindset. One that forced me to focus on the positives and let go of the things I couldn’t control. I celebrated when I made it to the gym 3 times in a week. I congratulated myself when I meal prepped and actually ate it, rather than grabbing takeout.⁠

I took everything one day at a time and always focused on the good.⁠

Over time, this growth mindset thing started to work, and I actually began seeing physical results!⁠

Those simple mindset shifts helped me get back on track to being my best self. ⁠
