Limiting Belief ?!?
So today was A GOOD DAY! I had the right mindset. My nutrition was aligned. And I got in a great UBWO and cardio session tonight. But there was something even better than all that?! I had a mental realization or breakthrough!
I'm excited about the weight I've dropped over the past 5 weeks. But I'm right back where I was 3 months ago. I realize my plateau might be more mental than physical. So I started analyzing. And I had a little help from my AP Terra! Two things I realized today:
1. My weight loss started slowing down (while still making progress) about mid-Summer. Why? After analysis and talks with Terra, I've realized the ONE MAJOR change is WHEN I work out. I think for my body type, I get my best results when I work out in the morning. It boosts my metabolism all day, I feel better, and I'm not stressing about HAVING to work out later that day.
2. The best weight I got to back in 2002 (the Body-For-LIFE days) was 225. Currently I'm hovering around 223~224. I've realized I'm faced with ANOTHER LIMITiNG BELIEF! Even if subconsciously, I'm struggling getting past this weight range. The last time I was below 220 was back around 2000. Heck, the last time I was below 200 was at my wedding in 1995.
Well, I've identified this LIMITING BELIEF and change in routine.
I threw out the limiting belief on the way home from the gym. I will change my routine.
I'm excited because I WILL MOVE FORWARD to the NEXT LEVEL!!!
