Last week Nala and I had a conversation that went something like this:
Nala: human, I need more exercise. Let’s start walking the
stairs to the top of our apartment building every morning.
Me: you know I don’t like cardio. There’s gotta be something else we can do.
Nala: puppy dog eyes
Me: Dammit you’re too cute. You win.
So for the last week we’ve been walking from the 7th floor to the 45th floor…38 freakin’ flights of stairs (I’m exhausted just thinking about it)
The first few days were ruff, we were both out of breath. What made it worse is every 5 or so flights of stairs, we’d look to see how far we had left…until today.
Today we kept our heads down and powered through. And by the time we got to the top we said to ourselves, hey that wasn’t too bad!
You know the message I’m trying to make here. So many people have a tough time with their fitness journey or building their business because they’re CONSTANTLY checking the scale or bank account.
Throw away your damn scale and constantly measuring your progress! It’s mentally exhausting and often misleading. Instead, focus on the habits. Focus on what you need to do each day and fall in love with the process.
