I avoided being part of a challenge group when I first started the 21 Day Fix. I told myself I didn't need it. I'm self motivated and that's true. I don't need people to make sure I work out but I did need people! I needed people to open up to, to share my insecurities and struggles. I needed to be part of a group that reminded me to have grace for myself and to make sure I was doing this for the right reasons.
Through challenge groups, I've learned that my motivation was from shame and fear. I was trying to make myself worthy through perfectionism which is a fools errand. It wasn't until I was surrounded by other woman who were doing this BECAUSE they saw their worth and were actually caring for themselves that I began to heal.
Much more than weight lost, muscle gained, or healthy eating habits, I needed emotional healing. Most of us do and yet we don't get it because we aren't willing to read the painful chapters out loud.
Challenge groups are so much more than accountability for workouts and nutrition, it's a safe place to get to root of the problem and to heal. We are all in the same place dealing with our own chapters and reading them out loud to people that understand and celebrate the victories with us.
If you haven't been successful in your health journey or you've been in a cycle of progress and falling off the wagon, I invite you to join our January challenge group.
I know it's scary to let people in, to feel vulnerable, but it's also scary to live in fear and shame. Stepping out into the light is both freeing and healing! Join us! Message me for more details on our January group!
