JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 139 :: trust in your dreams

20 May

Tonight I am tired in the best of ways… my muscles are sore from a little OrangeTheory workout. As I was running on the treadmill tonight I thought about how much it helps to have a coach. Someone to push your forward. Someone to prevent you from automatically stopping, or stopping too soon.

Dreams are that way too. 

We need a dream coach as much as we need one for workouts. Someone who trusts in your dreams more than you do. Someone who won’t let you quit. 

SO… Let your dreams rise and your fears fall. You got this.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 109 :: trust in your limits

19 Apr


{trust}  

My arms hurt. My legs are getting sore. It all hurts so good. Today I tried my first OrangeTheory class, evah (as you would say in Boston). It was actually in Hingham and I have been eyeing the studio for a while. Since I had the day off (thank you Good Friday!) I decided to jump in both feet first.

That’s usually the problem. Jumping in blindly. I was, in fact, nervous that I wouldn’ be able to keep up in the workout since it’s been a long winter. But the whole point of OrangeTheory is to push your own limits not trying to keep up (thus the heart rate monitors, tracked data and orange zone).

It’s still hard not to try to keep up. Ah, limits and boundaries and the word no. So hard to implement. But I did, or at least I tried to slow down to my own pace and then push my own limits too. Because, really, at the end of the day we are the only ones who know our own limits. 

But it takes a lot of trust and some self-knowledge to listen to your own limits and not others. And with that, I will admit, I will be very sore in the morning. But a good kind of sore. A just-for-me kind of sore and there is something special about that.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
