Repeating these words to myself over and over again:
Sore today, strong tomorrow.
Be determined, and weight loss should follow.
Hang in there, even with your brows furrowed.
When glutes are hurting, and quads are crying.
Biceps screaming, triceps sobbing.
When you’re exhausted, with muscles throbbing,
Believe it is possible, even when you’re just so…
Shattered and sore.
Aching right down to the core.
