I woke up at 3am and stumbled out of bed. I was exhausted and felt defeated. I had a workout to do and a whole day of teaching three year olds in front of me.
I grabbed my daily devotional and my T is for Transformation book. I read them but just felt like I was going through the motions. Not really soaking anything in.
Then came my workout. It was not my best by a long shot. Halfway through I planned on shutting it off and just giving up for the day. But I didn’t. I finished it. It wasn’t easy. I modified everything. I didn’t even finish most of the moves. But I didn’t give up.
I pushed through my negative thoughts. I finished something that seemed impossible when I woke up.
Today I failed forward. It’s days like today, when you want to give up, that you push through and grow. I learned some important lessons at 4am this morning. You are capable of more than you think. You just have to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
That look of disappointment is in myself. I had a bad day yesterday and allowed my emotions to take over. I ate 1 snack I shouldn’t have. I still woke up today, tired and not wanting to workout. But I have a group of ladies counting on me to do this. I have a test group of people counting on me to do this.
The workout was hard. I struggled. I modified. But I finished. No it wasn’t my best performance, but I did it!!! #myjourney#80dayobsession#momoftwins#twinmama#istruggletoo#emotionaleater#iwilltakecontrol

I think it’s important for me to show you guys that weight loss isn’t easy for everyone. Some people lose weight, & that’s it, they never gain it back & I THINK THAT’S AMAZING & ADMIRABLE, but that’s just not me. I’ve been on this journey for like 6 years, & have lost and gained more times than i can count. The photo on the left here i had just recently put on about 40 pounds & it was another ‘day 1’ to committing to my goals. I’m FIH•NA•LLYYYY in a place mentally where I’ve learned to maintain my weight loss without huge scale fluctuations (a few pounds is okay w/ me), but i share this cus i want you to remember that just because it’s HARD doesn’t mean it’s IMPOSSIBLE. Whether this journey is a piece of cake for you, or you’re riding the struggle bus every other week - know that you’re capable of change..♥️. #transformationtuesday#fitspo#goals#weightlossjourney#change#igfitness#motivation#myjourney
We all look at Instagram and see people that are doing things we wish we could do or things we KNOW we could do. But how do we get there? There is no blueprint to life or success. I say “Just do it!” Check out my IG story to see how i was able to put fear and doubt aside to snag my new job. #tunnelvision#myjourney#productionDannie
