Good Friday morning, friends!
I’m blown away with the amount of high fives I received this week through email. I can’t thank you enough! I wish it was like this every week! If you’d like to participate in next week’s HFF celebration please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be featured in next week’s HFF post! Remember, it’s so important to give yourself recognition for your successes and accomplishments and HFF is the perfect time to do just that!
Heather – “I want to give myself a high five for realizing how FAR I’ve come in my journey with intuitive eating! Over the last few weeks, I’ve felt like an entirely new person…practicing patience and forgiveness with myself…and have been binge-free for nearly a MONTH! I finally feel like I’ve healed my distorted relationship with food. I finally feel like I accept myself for who. I finally feel “normal”!”
Dominique – “I squatted 155 lbs (15 lbs more than my bodyweight!) for the first time ever! I was able to do 3 sets of 5, and I felt like superwoman with a very sore bum for the next couple days.”
Lauren – “After months of training (and completing) with a half marathon goal in mind, I am now started to lift again and it feels great! Hopefully my off race season strength training will make be an ever better runner next year!”
Miss Polkadot – “I’m giving myself a High Five for submitting a recipe to Foodgawker for the firt time ever and it being accepted right away. Actually, I had done it just for fun so I was surprised and happy to see this.”
Stephanie – “I’d like to give myself a high five for taking the leap and becoming self-hosted. I’m still working out the kinks but I’m proud that I figured it out myself!”
Allison – “I would like to give myself a HIGH FIVE for starting GPP workouts, thanks to your motivation, this week! I have completed TWO and am completely in love!! I cannot wait to start adding more into my workout routines!!!”
Kelsey – “After being somewhat blind-sided when I was let go from my job last friday, I knew that I couldn’t funnel my emotions into anything other than a run. Unfortunately, I realized I had no headphones and I definitely was going to need some music motivation to get me through this run. I drove from my work, bought headphones at the store near the trail I was going to run, parked the car and ran. I just ran until I had gone through every emotion I had. Sadness, anger, defeat, revenge, strength, and in maybe some confidence of whats to come mixed with a little fear of the unknown. I surprised myself by running 10.1 miles, on a whim, at a sub 7:30 mile pace. Yes I am a runner and run almost daily, but motivating myself to run any more than 5 if I’m not training for something is difficult. But not on this run! Sometimes, the hardest obstacles in life are accompanied by determination, motivation, and the belief than I am not going to let anything stop me from my success!”
Jan – “My high five Friday this week has been switching off more from technology and social media this week. I’ve set the goal this month of trying to switch off from the internet and social media after 9pm so I can focus more on my other hobbies and interests and have some more balance and so far I’ve been loving it.”
Katie – “A little over a year ago, I swallowed my pride and moved back home so I could get out of LA, save money and get my personal training certificate. This was a big deal for me but this past year has been huge for my growth and I’m excited to say (and give myself a high five for) moving back into my own place this week!”
Sara – “I am currently sidelined with a stress fracture, but instead of giving up I have focused on doing what I can and coming back from this a better and stronger runner! I have focused on abs and arms all week and I can already tell a difference! I have done SOMETHING to strengthen my abs each day and focused on my diet and healthy eating. Even when I felt like giving up – I keep pushing through! High Five!”
Well that’s all the submissions we have this week! Thank you so much to those of you who submitted and like I said before, if you’d like to appear in next week’s post please submit your high five to email@example.com
What are you giving yourself a high five for this week? I want to hear it!
I will be giving myself a high five for completing the hardest GPP WOD yet! Monday’s WOD was so tough, but I pushed through and felt on top of the world after completing something so tough! I can definitely notice changes in my fitness level and myself (I’m making gains!) and I’m loving them
Have a great day and don’t forget to celebrate how wonderful you are!
See you Monday! xo
