It’s Time to Break Up

 

Something new and exciting to announce today, a week or so ago I was asked to be a fitmixer.com brand ambassador! You can check out my bio on their ambassador page and see who else you may know what is an ambassador. Anyway, something that totally drew me to them when I was asked about it was the idea of BALANCE. For them, it’s not just about eating right, or working out, it’s a balance of those things PLUS the mental aspect of it all. Positive thinking, self confidence, and a balanced life are all things I value so I as very excited to jump on board. Fitmixer also holds boot camps if you enjoy doing those, be sure to check it out!

It doesn’t matter if you are trying to build muscle, lose weight, or just make sure you are getting the proper nutrients, fitmixer has a great product line for everyone. I have been loving the vanilla protein powder (tastes like a milkshake!) and the amino acid supplement. I have been taking the protein before workouts and the amino afterwards.

Another great thing about me being an ambassador? I will get to hold giveaways for YOU! That’s right, so stay tuned for the fun. I will be hosting giveaways here on my site and also linking you up to ones being hosted by Fitmixer.

Every month, I will be writing a Fitmixer blog post on a particular topic given to me by the company. This month’s topic is…dun dun dun…the break up letter. As they say, breaking up is hard to do. However, sometimes it just needs to be done, and I have some things/attitudes I need to break up with myself. So I decided to write my break up letter to doubt.

Dear doubt,

     It’s time for you to go. I am tired of you whispering in my ear every time I get injured that I will never be able to run again, that I will never reach my goals, and that I will be unhappy. I am tired of the anxiety that comes along with being unsure about the future. I am typically a positive person, but for some reason when it comes to fitness, running, and my blog goals, it all goes out the window.

I know you want me to never realize my dreams or goals, and you want me to keep telling myself that I am not good enough, strong enough, or fast enough to matter. You do NOT want me to remember that everyone is on a different road, that everyone’s journey will not look the same. You do NOT want me to remember that I have friends and family that love me and are rooting for me.

Instead, you want me to give up. Quit. Stay down when the going gets tough. Oh, doubt, it would be so easy to do so, and honestly, in the past year, there have been times when I wanted to give in to you. Getting a stress fracture in my foot, getting morton’s neuroma in the same foot, dealing with other stresses of life, and having writers/bloggers block. You would have loved that wouldn’t you? But I refuse to let you win, you will not defeat me. So doubt, hit the road, I can and will do this!

Heather

    Hey there Heather,

    Great post and although I am not a letter writer and would love to win some fitmixer just wanted to mention that I really liked your letter as I was sick for 2 weeks and i have been struggling with my running for about a month now and as you said with other stressers in life doubt can really make a difference if you fall into it.

    I have fallen into it as i am not sure how to go about getting back in my running
