The words of my trainer “Focus on yourself”

12 Jul

I’ve recently started working with a personal trainer to make sure I get back to where I was physically. After my knee injury I lost a whole lot of muscle mass in my left leg, its weaker and smaller than my right leg. Well there you go, I just put my business on blast..lol

But that’s not why I’m writing this blog. I’ve noticed that when I’m training and I find myself getting frustrated with my knee, more than once my eyes start to focus on something else more appealing than the discomfort I’m feeling.

When my trainer notices, she’s like “Focus on yourself Kay-Ann, just Focus on yourself”

And it works, she snaps me back to where my attention needs to be, which is making sure I focus on my form, what my goals are while I’m working out and to make sure I stay positive throughout the process.

So the next time you find yourself getting distracted, you’re putting off work that needs to get done, because it’s not something you want to do. Say what my trainer tells me “Focus on yourself”

The next time you wish you were further ahead, but you’re not, tell yourself to focus, focus on the now, focus on what you’re doing now, which will help you move along to the next goal.
