Introducing our second guest blogger, Kristi Rae Smith. She has been a member at CPM since June, 2014 and is a blast to have in class.

Get over it…Just do it!!!

By Kristi Rae Smith

First of all, if you’re anything like me, then you’re probably not reading this blog right now…you’re scrolling straight to the bottom of the page to see what the workout is tomorrow. I don’t blame you because that’s exactly what I would do. However, I do usually go back and read the blog, and I hope you’re doing the same right now!

What to write about for my first CPM blog?! Thankfully I have a 40 minute drive to and from work every day, so I get a lot of time to think. On my drive this morning, I was thinking about one of my favorite Nike ads. STOP…please click on the following link to view the ad before you continue reading on. Click HERE.

A lot of days I feel like the girl doing yoga or the one using the “baby weights.” Maybe some of you can relate as well. (If you haven’t watched the video yet, you definitely need to do it now…otherwise none of what I just said will make any sense!)

Working out is a physical activity, yet it takes a lot of mental toughness to be successful. I personally struggle a lot with thinking that I can’t do certain movements or distances while I work out…I especially am good at talking myself out of things and making excuses of why I can’t finish something. My next message is for myself and for anyone else who might need it… GET OVER IT…JUST DO IT!!! In the end, you will be better for it. Whatever your “it” is, just think positive & believe in yourself! YOU CAN DO IT!!! Once you get over the mental part, you’ll be amazed at what you can physically achieve.

Have a great week!
