This is a quote I’ve heard often in the last 6 weeks. It seems to be one of Autumn Calabrese’s favorite phrases. At first I thought that was complete hooey. In a way it is, but it isn’t all at the same time. I think more more correct statement would be “It get’s easier BECAUSE you get stronger!”
As we work out, as we eat healthier, as we create those positive life changes they become easier through repetition and through pushing ourselves to do more and do better. So the things we do repetitively get easier because we know how to do them. But to keep them challenging, we increase our intensity, we modify and add to them.
Because honestly, we want to continue to grow and change and see progress. So we don’t stagnate. We find our wall so to speak, and we find ways to scale and push past it. And do you know why? Because the stronger you get, the more you want to do.
Working out and being bit IS your lifestyle. It feeds you energy, it lets you do more of what you enjoy. And you want to keep pushing to do even more. You’ve pushed past that fear, that worry, past what once held you back. And by doing that you keep finding new limits and pushing past them. Because though things are getting easier, you’re also getting stronger.
That new strength feeds you and pushes you. It fuels you. Mind, body AND soul. It helps you to find your balance. And that my dears, is a wonderful thing. Enjoy it. Embrace it. And keep going! You’ve got this!
