People were coming out of the woodwork to tell me that they too fall on their face and that they thought they were the only ones! Spoiler alert- you arent. That shit is hard. Faceplants are happening.
The internet is a funny thing. Because we control what we put out there, we really have complete control over how other people see our lives. This goes for moms who only show the professional pictures, instead of the every day messy life. Or weight loss bloggers who just show the after, but not the hard parts in the middle. We dont want to look dumb or imperfect on the internet so we just share the pretty stuff.
Spoiler alert- My life isn't perfect, or pretty most of the time. And neither is this journey. Yesterday when I started Isometrix for the first time, and I kept falling out of posture, I knew I wanted to tape it. I am making a 90 day progress video at the end of this and I want to see really how far I have come. And at the end as I was going through the footage, I couldn't help but laugh at all the times I fell down, LITERALLY on my face. And that was when I decided to make a collage of that, not the good parts (because there were good parts too) but the messy real parts. The parts that people are afraid to share.
Here it is btw.
And ya know what- that is real life. I get asked a lot if P90X3 is hard. So far it hasn't been insurmountable, but Isometrix kicked my ass. I have a long ways to go, but I am excited to go there! I know the next time I do it will be better. And that is what is important. I don't think I will ever reach "perfection". Not as a person, or in my workouts, or anywhere. I think perfection is a terrible thing to chase because you will never be happy.
I am happy with progress.
Don't forget to ask my husband questions! I will have his responses up Friday so send those our way :D
