Back in the day I used to look at Janet Jackson’s abs and think, “Wow I could never have abs like hers”. I thought only certain people could have abs and a nice physique, but now I know better. For whatever reason I thought I didn’t have what it took physically and/or genetically to achieve such a look. But since I’ve been working out, especially these past few weeks since I have been focusing on my abs, I realize that with hard work in the gym and a good diet, I too can see what my abdominal muscles look like. When I look in the mirror I can see progress even though my measurements aren’t changing much. Also I’ve noticed that the exercises are getting easier to do so I know my core is getting stronger. I may not have flat abs yet but I know with time that I will. I taped a picture to my bathroom mirror of a dancer with great abs and I look at it everyday for motivation, and I smile every time I see it because I know I will reach my goal.
Have you been thinking something was impossible for you to accomplish but now you know better? What reminders do you surround yourself with that motivates you to reach that goal?
