The 3 C’s I have struggled with and continue to work on! ⁣

1️⃣ Comparison – I’ve struggled with this as an athlete and as a business co-owner. I think it’s human nature to want to see how you “stack-up” against others but in my experience comparison doesn’t often lead to positive feelings or outcomes. I’m constantly reminding myself to steer my own ship and stay in my own lane. I have control over my own actions, why worry about what others are doing? ⁣

Lesson: trust your instincts and pave your own path, it’s the only one that matters.⁣

2️⃣ Confidence – I think this stems from the comparison struggle. Where and how do we build confidence? For me, confidence usually came in the form of praise from my coaches, parents or other “authority” figures. At some point, I learned that confidence could come from within too. I could be proud of myself for an accomplishment that I felt good about. ⁣

Lesson- You don’t always need someone else to confirm what you feel and KNOW is true. ⁣

3️⃣ Consistency – for the longest time I would chase the newest “shiny object” in the nutrition world. When I first started CrossFit I swear to you I was doing paleo, low carb, and intermittent fasting at the same time. Once my progress stalled and my patience ran thin (which was about 2 weeks of “waiting”), I decided I wasn’t eating enough fat and tried my own version of high fat (butter coffee) fasting while walking around with a weight vest on to “burn more fat”. Knowing what I know now, I wish I would have just tracked my calories and stayed consistent with a healthy, balanced diet. ⁣

Lesson: sustainability and consistency are the king and queen of progress.
