The 6 Week Mind & Body Transformation Challenge came to an end last week, and as I prepare to embark on the next 6 week challenge I’m reflecting on the transformation I’ve experienced over the last 6 weeks.
At the beginning of the challenge I spent time finding my why; when I re-read that post today I realise how far I’ve come. The behaviors that have been keeping me locked in a cycle of negative thinking have changed – I’m no longer getting undressed with the lights off, I’m not eating behind the pantry door and I’ve stopped editing myself out of the family photos!
Fear of No Change
Your life does not get better by chance.
It gets better by change.
One of my biggest fears before starting the challenge was that I wouldn’t be able to change. This fear has taken root so deeply in my mind, that the slightest disappointment on the scales sent it into over drive! It felt as if a part of me was just waiting to get confirmation that I can’t change.
Why is it that we’re so willing to accept our failings but so reluctant to believe that we can be successful?
Over the last 6 weeks I lost 5 cm from around my waist but only 1.5kg and guess what? My mind wants to focus on the disappointing weight loss rather than the impressive cm loss!
Whilst I’m ramping up for the next 6 week challenge, I’m also reflecting on my previous goals. My main goal was to lose 6kg, but I only got 1/4 of the way towards it. But maybe I should re-phrase that;
I’m a quarter of the way closer to achieving my ultimate goal!
Now that’s worth celebrating!!
I’m approaching the next 6 weeks with more experience, knowledge and self belief. I’ve been inspired by the achievements of the women who I’m working alongside in Advanced Fitness; with they’re support, my determination and planning I’m optimistic that the next 6 weeks will bring me even closer to my ultimate goal.
A Take-Away From The Last Challenge
Here’s the learning I’ll take away from the last 6 weeks.
Do you have any more recommendations to help me on the next challenge? I’d love to hear your advice in the comments!
