For years, I pushed myself to the max…

I don’t know who needs to hear this… but it’s okay to lower your expectations for yourself.

For years, I pushed myself to the max. I had to be ‘the best’ at everything I did…

The best at sticking to my diet.The best at hitting PRs in the gym.The best at seeing scale progress.

And all of it was so stressful!

I never felt like I was good enough and it turns out, the only thing I was ‘the best’ at, was draining my energy, trashing my hormones, feeling miserable, and developing bad habits disguised as discipline.

I finally had enough and made the decision to make a change.

I decided to lower my expectations of being ‘the best’ and instead focus on being kinder to my body. I know it sounds a bit cheesy, but giving myself some grace (and rest!) when it came to my workout routine made all the difference.

What if you cut yourself some slack?

What if you focused on imperfect consistency?

What if you embraced a less is more mentality?

Do you think you’d be happier?

Do you think your hormones would be more balanced?

Do you think you’d have more energy and see better results?

I say, absolutely yes!
