Find your superpower

It’s been a while since I shared something about my fit journey with you guys. Wasn’t there something worth sharing? Well, I guess there was but I was so busy running from one thing to the other that I didn’t really have the time to reflect on myself. The storm has settled and I start to see everything clear again. So what happened over the past few months?

In summer, I decided that I wanted to do something I was truly passionate about. I quit my job and devoted most of my time to #FITGIRLCODE and Jogha. Although I consider it to be one of the best decisions in my life, a lot of things changed. My boyfriend also got another job hence we had to deal with different schedules. Eating and working out separately , became more a rule than an exception. On top of that, we also bought our first home and we decided to get a dog. Although this was all pretty exciting, for me personally, it was a lot of change to wrap my mind around.

The result of all these changes was that there wasn’t much time left for exercising. Of course I tried to squeeze it in and dragged my butt to the gym, but I felt like I wasn’t making enough progress in the Fit Girl department anymore.

My head felt like exploding
Although my job was very fulfilling, I was a bit disappointed in myself. I just wanted to do it all right: have a career, be an awesome Fit Girl and have a rocking social life at the same time. It started to frustrate me that I wasn’t able to handle my situation well; unlike other people who didn’t seem to have the same problem. Sometimes at night, my head felt like exploding and I couldn’t sleep at all. When I thought about the situation I was in, I realized that it wasn’t the first time that I felt like this; so overwhelmed by everything that was happening in my life. It was a recurring thing, which was actually always there; sometimes it just felt more pressing than other times.

    Hi Anna, wat stoer dat je dit verhaal wilt delen! Ik heb ook de diagnose ADHD gekregen 5 jaar geleden omdat ik ook steeds meer vast begon te lopen met alles en voornamelijk mijn studie. Dat was vrij heftig toen! Ook aan de medicatie geweest, maar nu zonder en geleerd hoe ik er zonder ook goed mee kan functioneren 🙂 Inderdaad je superpower vinden! Bedankt voor je verhaal 😀 Xx

    Wat stoer van je dat je dit deelt! Ik zou me kunnen voorstellen dat zo’n diagnose heel veel opluchting geeft. You go Rock that ADHD!
