…but it can be hard. To ask for help means that we have to admit that we can’t do it on our own. To me, it means I have reached the limit of my knowledge and now I need someone else to share theirs. My weight-loss and fitness goals are not going as planned. I’m terrible at tracking meals and apparently not so good at working out when I want too.
Then it dawned on me, I don’t have a plan. I’m just trudging along hoping for the best and that NEVER works. Ok it works for a luck few but the old saying it true “those who fail to plan,plan to fail”. So in an effort of not failing I have admitted that I need help. Thankfully, I have the running thing down and the cross-training. Where I fall short is weight lifting. I know it is important but I don’t know the first thing about it. Now, I could read every book and spend a lot of time doing it myself. Or I can call upon one of my oldest friends (15 years?!?! say what??) who happens to be a form competitor.
If you don’t know about her, you can learn more about Rebecca Mitchell on her Facebook page. Her dedication to her craft really is impressive. And even though sometimes I don’t get it, I can not deny her commitment and the results.
Now, I have no desire, what-so-ever, to be a form competitor. My goal is fitness, and if I drop a few or 20lbs, in the process even better! She loves competing, I much prefer running (this is where we differ greatly, lol) So, when I realized that what I was doing wasn’t working, I sucked up my pride and asked for help. Becky, being the awesome friend that she is, has accepted the…challenge?
So, I now await further gym instructions (in the past she has gotten her jollies off of making me a guinea pig, I fear this will be no different). However, I am confident that with a little instruction and guidance, I will be able to become the me I would prefer to be. So, followers, take it from me and don’t be afraid to ask for help from time to time! I promise it is worth it!
