MoorEmpowered To Be A Triathlete
Part of changing myself for the better, I need to help my body reach its fullest and healthiest potential. Living an active life will not only help my physical being, but my mental being as well. The stress that comes from carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders is best relieved by living an active life. One of the ways I plan on living an active live is to participate in Triathlons.

Participating in Triathlons requires extensive and exhausting training. This training serves multiple purposes. Not only will it have its intended goal of helping me become physically stronger and faster but partnered with daily mediation and self reflection, will help me build a steadfast relationship with myself. I will truly learn my body and mind from a deeper aspect, what they can handle and what they are capable of.

Before I change the world, I need to learn who I am, physically, mentally and spiritually.

A Little Support Never Hurt

Although I am like a sponge, absorbing information from anyone around me that has made their life into something they are proud of, I am not that good at asking for help in reaching that for my own life.

Being independent and not afraid to forge your own path can sometimes leave you stubborn and closed off from embracing assistance. Through this training process, I want to truly learn how to accept constructive criticism from those around me who care as well as embrace love and support.

I have a great little family that loves and supports me but I have added more love and support around me with my boyfriends family. It is a little new to me to have a lot eyes on me that care where my life takes me. Before, I could fall on my face and quietly get back up, dust off, and try again. However, that is not the case anymore. I have so much support that nothing is quite anymore. At first, this intimidating me greatly. Negative thoughts swam in my head like, "what if I fail and his whole family knows, what if I have just an off day and his whole family knows." I have learned over the past 3 years of this relationship that there is actually no negativity at all in their support. Support is what you want when you fail, so you have more hands to help pull you up off the ground.

I started learning to accept help yesterday in the gym with my boyfriend. Before I was stubborn with accepting his lifting advice because for some reason I felt that by accepting it meant that I was inadequate, like I didn't know what I was doing. That is not the case at all. I am quite capable in the gym but I can't stick to the same routine, I need to change it up if I want to see results. Lifting with Kyle allows me some variety in my workouts.
