Hornear con CultFit

A true genius admits that he/she knows nothing-

I remember the events as though they happened yesterday afternoon I was confident that healing my battered body would be easy and competing at a high level once again would be a cinch, but then, I tried myself once again. I thought of myself as impervious to illness and injury, but then I destroyed my back and ruined my 35-year-old knee. I believed that I had put these injuries behind me, then recently I experienced a painful event like so many that happened in the past. Injuries and setbacks can be humbling experiences, if we listen and pay attention to them.

Humble Pie” is as good for your body and soul, more so than organic food, yoga, riding a uni-cycle and running at 6am. Do you feel like discussing humility in the most positive sense this morning? The self-effacing, not self-abasing sense? If so please leave a comment below

Notes:

Real folks, real passionate – authentic folks (the exact opposite of fitspiration) find it challenging to shed a few pounds in a healthy manner, learning to quit abusing their bodies is even harder. I thought it would be easy because of this “thing” called willpower, the very same willpower that kept my broke ass – well broke, for so many years.

If your ego has been damaged by the setback(s) life likes to serves our way, a little “Humble Pie” may serve as a more preferable flavour …  

Be well and please take care!

  1. I think, that though humility can feel like a blow to the soul at times, it is a powerful gift. It shifts our perspective from feeling powerful, world-conquering to…less than that. It helps us accept vulnerability as its own type of strength, admit we need help where we may not have thought to ever ask for it and gives us a glimpse at the power of the village we’ve built (and whether that needs some work). Strong again, we understand that vulnerability more – we better recognize when others need help and we value our village all the more. Shifts in perception move us forward in a way that always being on the same path cannot.

      Thank you for such a powerful comment, seriously – what you shared speaks volumes to me and all the other kind folks that wander over here on a daily basis. I hope you are having a fantastic weekend, take care!

    I think injuries and weight loss plateaus (which I’m experiencing both now!) bring you back down to reality. Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real. Humility teaches me that I’m not the best at everything, but I can always improve.

    • CultFit says:

      There’s no doubt in my mind that you will be able to continue to heal, break through your plateaus and continue to do such inspiring work! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care and thank you for stopping over. 🙂

    Humbling indeed. Not doing the second Tri in a row–this one sparked by my bike wreck months ago–and also weight loss issues. Sheesh. You’d think if I can train for a triathlon I could control what I eat. That alone is humbling.
    I told someone I ran a 10k and she immediately looked me up and down and said “really?” As if she didn’t believe that I could. That was just depressing.
    I just keep trucking. Hang in there, and have a beautiful weekend

    We went to mpls to see our grandson get baptized. A good day.

      The story you shared sets me off like no other, who cares what she has to say anyways? Or anyone else for that matter … Words hurt, the way pretentious soccer moms look at us hurt deeply. You know what though? You finished, had fun and created a moment in your life that you will never forget. Just like witnessing your little dude of a grandson being baptized. 🙂
      When we meet up and if you feel like pressing my buttons like my wife does at times? Bring up this story again. 😉 Take care today and I hope you guys can escape the humidity this morning.

  4. We all need to have a little humble pie from time to time. Mine came when I could no longer do my usual job. It’s hard to find a new identity after spending 35 years perfecting it. Now I am someone very different. My job

  5. (Ooops. Stupid computer)

    My job no longer defines me. That is humbling and very freeing.

    It takes bravery to talk about injuries and finances in the same blog post. The benefit? Knowing that you’re not alone – for both of us.

      Its tough at times but knowing that others have gone or are going through the same set of circumstances brings a little clarity, a sense of “we can make through this” … Be well my friend and please take care!
