I recently started with a new client that had been fairly sedentary, with the exception of a few random hikes. We were a mere 5 sessions in when she went to the massage therapist that she had been seeing for years.
“You exercise now?” asked the large Russian women.
“Yes…how did you know?” my client replied.
“From no exercise to exercise the body, totally different.”
Personally, I was surprised that such a change could occur after a super short time, but there it was. An expert on bodies and musculature, unprompted, could tell the difference.
So hell, it’s not that hard to redefine your self (pun intended) and it happens fast. When we are on the journey, it’s impossible to tell where we land because we see ourselves everyday.
“Yep, still me.”
Like when Auntie Steph comes to visit my little kids and is shocked they look so much bigger than they were last time, but they look the same to me.
That’s where the leap of faith, the trust in the process comes in. If I keep working out and eating mainly healthy foods I will get the results I am looking for.
Trust in the consistency gods. They will provide.
