Investing In Yourself First

I hate feeling like I can’t do something.  I hate it even more when something out of my control is limiting me from it.  For the past 6 years I have owned a CrossFit Gym, and the past 10 years I have been pretty consistent in prioritizing my fitness.  I’m not a superstar athlete and honestly even in the world of “mom crossfitters” I’m pretty darn average.  After having 3 kids my body is a little worn down. 

I haven’t done the best job of making sure I have recovered.  In the push to “do all the things” and be a super human in all areas of my life I have kept pushing through some discomfort.  Fast forward 20 months postpartum and now I’m having some pretty significant back/sciatic pain that is affecting every day life and forced me into physcial therapy.  (Shout out to Dr. Beavers at Momentum Sports and Performance).  

The other day in physical therapy I had a revelation.  I needed to make a shift from the CrossFit that I so love (not forever, just for a season).  This shift does not mean I’m not going to workout.  In fact – it means I’m going to workout with a purpose.  I hired an awesome personal trainer (Genny Tidwell shoutout), who is going help with some Kourtney specific training for the next few months.  

Suddenly I feel like a newbie at the gym.  I have my first session tonight and I’m NERVOUS!  What is she going to have me do?  It’s gonna be hard!  I’m not going to want to do it!  Which is WHY!!! I hired a coach.  I know me, and even with all the resources and equipment in the world (I mentioned I own a gym right?) I’m not going to do it on my own.  At least I’m not going to do it well.

If I have learned anything in the last year it’s that I need a coach.  I have hired one in my business, I’m seeking one in my spiritual life and NOW I have a coach just for my personal fitness.  She’s gonna help me reach my goal and probably set some I didn’t even know I had.  Do you need a coach?  I know that you do.  The question is will you invest in yourself enough to get one.  We both know you deserve it.
