I want to start this story by telling you about the Cathy from 3 years ago.โฃ

โฃ

Like many people, Cathy worked her tail off during the week and found her fun on the weekends with a couple cocktails ๐Ÿน.โฃ

โฃ

At that time, she didn't belong to a gym and the thought of it was intimidating. โฃ

โฃ

๐“๐ก๐ž๐ง ๐ฌ๐จ๐ฆ๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ง๐  ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž๐. โฃ

โฃ

Cathy saw a posting on Facebook about a 21 day challenge at a local women's gym. She took the plunge and signed up.โฃ

โฃ

Over those 3 weeks she noticed something. Not only was her body physically changing, but her confidence was growing. This self-identified introvert was coming out of her shell and building friendships.โฃ

โฃ

Cathy continued at this gym and even joined a 2nd gym before the pandemic hit. This is where most people throw in the towel...๐˜‰๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜Š๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜บ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ถ๐˜จ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ด.โฃ

โฃ

She had shifted her identity to becoming someone who works out and a pandemic wasn't going to change that.โฃ

โฃ

She continued working out via zoom classes on a daily basis, making it part of her evening ritual.โฃ

โฃ

This would be enough to make anyone satisfied with their journey. ๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ, ๐˜Š๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜บ ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฏ'๐˜ต ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ.โฃ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

โฃ

Last fall she decided it was time to focus on her nutrition. It was the missing link to her already incredible fitness journey. โฃ

โฃ

We started by tracking how she was currently eating and making some small adjustments to her calorie goals. Cathy stuck to making the meals on the weekly list and limited her alcohol and fast food. โฃ

โฃ

She started to notice the weight melting off.โฃ

โฃ

In addition, we focused on small daily habits focused on changing her mindset around food and routines. Habits such as increasing her water, focusing on protein and veggies, and daily journaling.โฃ

โฃ

This is where Cathy really started to excel. These habits and routines weren't just a means to an end - something she did until she reached her weight loss goal.โฃ

โฃ

No, they became part of who she is and what she's about. โฃ

โฃ

Because of these small but compounding changes, Cathy continued to lose weight AND heal her digestive pain that she had struggled with for years!โฃ

โฃ

I think the big lesson that can be taken away from Cathy's story is this:โฃ

๐’๐ฎ๐œ๐œ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ฅ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฐ๐ฌ ๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฆ๐ข๐ญ๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ. ๐’๐ญ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ ๐ ๐ฅ๐ž ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ฅ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฐ๐ฌ ๐๐จ๐ฎ๐›๐ญ.โฃ

โฃ

The day Cathy committed to joining a gym challenge was the day she went all-in on herself. And she continued to commit and go all-in in herself in the years that followed. That's why she's successful.โฃ

โฃ

So many people sign up for program or try a challenge with skepticism. They their doubt their abilities or the likelihood that the program will work for them. Therefore it doesn't. ๐€๐Š๐€ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฅ๐Ÿ-๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐Ÿ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ฉ๐ซ๐จ๐ฉ๐ก๐ž๐œ๐ฒ. โฃ

โฃ

Cathy is successful because she knew she would be. And for that same reason, Cathy has stayed successful in her journey. ๐Ÿ‘‘
