Mentally strong


I was doing a kickboxing DVD when I stopped working out because I was physically tired. I came home in the morning to sleep after a 12 hour shift. I was disappointed that I stopped the DVD so I continue to work on my pushup. I have been doing a pushup challenge for a couple weeks. I was supposed to do 22 push up, but I did 23. In life we can be physically tired but mentally we can go the distances if we push ourselves.

Two weeks ago I was only able to do six push up. I am happy I can push up in the 20s without modifying them. I struggle everyday to get up after a 12 hour shift and get my workout in. I don’t rely on motivation, I choose to get up and fight for what I want every day.

I have learned a lot from my failures; failures have been my best teachers always encouraging and Challenge me to be better. So my advice for you this week is to step out of your comfort zone and get out of your way. Don’t be afraid of failing. My competition is the person I see when I look in the Mirror. Be your own competition and run your own race.


You are braver than you believe, stronger than seem, and smarter than you think”.

  1. Hey girl great work!!! Well done… I think we get so caught up in the pressure of it not being good enough and it never being enough… We keep putting the bar higher and higher and we don’t celebrate success enough. It’s great to see you’re sharing your wins on your blog well done. Keep it up! I share healthy recipes and workout ideas on my blog and also some great articles on fitness and wellbeing mindset. I hope you like it 🙂

  2. Hey Keisha,
    Your push up video was great! I played it and did my best to keep up with you, but I did have to modify mine 😄
    More than 20 minuets of kickboxing after working a 12 hour shift! Don’t downplay yourself – that’s amazing! 👏🏼🙏🏼
