You Can use the gym as normal and you Can create your own way of using it. 😉
Today it´s a windy but warm day. I´m waiting for Tiago to come home so we can eat and then go to the gym. I love the gym here in Santarém but the only thing I am actually missing is someplace where I can climb up and do my “monkey/street-training”. Hehe.
Since I was a kid I´ve always climbed up in trees and places wherever I could try to get up in. And to hang there, be upside down, go around, lift up, jump etc – that was my best playground and it still is! = But because of the gym dosn´t have that here I think it is good because of my backinjury is not 100% yet so I think it is good it´s not there to tempts me. =P
On saturday there is a small competition here in our city in Portugal. It is kind of crossfit but they call it Scape-fit instead because it is only a comeptition for everyone who is members in the gym here, named Scape.
I have only been training two times the last 5 weeks of different reasons. I tried yesterday to go trough the exercises we are gonna do and even i it is really a small and “easy” competition it is hard for me with my asthma (and the asthma get reeeally bad when I push to much!!). I almost couldn´t breethe yesterday. AND I forgot my asthma-medicine so it was extra hard for me… but today I will relax and tomorrow I will do one more training and at thursday as well. So then I will at least have 4 trainingsessions before the competition in the last 6 weeks.. Haha! =P But my goal is to just complete it on saturday. Without fall apart without breething! 😉 So health and body before number one at the pricepall.
But of course- I have a competition-mind so if I would get number one- of course I would prefere and appreciate that! So we will see how it goes… I will keep you updated!
One time a couple of years ago I got to hear that a person was so annoyed about I was so positive all the time. And one time a girl didn´t like me because she thought I was so “perfect”.
Why is someone reacting with a negative feeling on something good and a positive thing and why dont like a person who is in their perspective “perfect”. First of all I can say: I AM perfect and I am NOT perfect. This is the same for all persons in the world. We are all perfect with our non-perfections. But it all come to what perspective we as a individual have when we see things and HOW we CHOOSE to do with what we see.
We all have ways and things in our lifes that other people also want to have. And they have things that I maybe want as well. So, instead of being jealous and get annoyed about someone elses success and “perfect life” we should take that focus to our selfs instead and see the others as a motivation and a inspiration. From them we can learn.
But when you push them away, getting jealous and annoyed you will never learn to get it, your will only learn how to NOT get it and instead just get negative feelings in your life. Try to get close and be happy for them and I can almost make sure that they will be happy to help you achieve your dreams as well! And if they wont- just take the good part from them, see how they do and then go back to yourself and see what qualities You have and what you can do with you quality together with the new things you learned or get motivated/inspired from the other “perfect” person.
And when, for example me, is writing statuses on my fb I mostly try to consciously focus on the positive parts of my day/thougths. Even if it is something negative/bad happened during the day I am CHOOSING to focus on the positive part. I can express the bad situation but I am trying to always compensate it with something positive in the end of the status- that make me CHOOSE to be positive but still accepting the bad situation but without let it take control over me.
It´s all about to get balance in life and to take conscious choices in all situations always. Then they will become natural choices and healthy habbits in our lifes. Never ever give up taking good choices. If you take a “bad” one – Learn from it instead of putting yourself down from it. Take that choice as well. Always.
Tomorrow the plane will take me to Sweden. And I am a bit nervous because it will be so fun to go on all the big meetings, give trainings to both “old” and new clients/customers in my company, meet my family and to eat some swedish food that I can´t find here in Portugal!
And also I have a new project going on that will have its first “testgroup” on sunday. It will be so fun and I am looking forward to it!! And also- it will be nice to finally have a internet working everyday in my iphone so I can keep you updated regulary everyday I am there! Here at the countryside the internet is not so fast always and I only have it in our home… Hehe.
Time to pack my bag, wash the clothes, print out my clients trainingprograms and enjoy some extra cosy hours with our dog Happy who will stay here in Portugal with Tiagos family! ❤
