you’re failing. time for a comeback.
the-mind

Everyone loves a good comeback story. But when we’re at that pivotal point — the point where we transform defeat into victory — our comeback hinges on the intensity with which we lean into our discomfort. We have to get pissed. Fed up. Over it. We have to give up on caring and double up on doing.

Comeback heroes know what they’re up against. They know enough to know what didn’t work the last time, and they proceed anyway. With doubled down intensity. And my guess is we love a comeback because we know it has tangible, transformative power in it. It has history of failure, history of defeat, history of heartbreak — but history be damned, we get our butt back in the game anyway and make change happen.

Think a comeback doesn’t have incredible power in it? Consider this comeback kid:

He grew up poor. He failed at two businesses and  had a nervous breakdown. Went into politics, lost when he ran for Congress, lost twice for the Senate and lost when he was the vice presidential candidate. Then he was elected President of the United States and changed the course of this country’s history forever because he was Abraham Lincoln.

Maybe it’s an irresponsible stretch to say that Lincoln was “over it,” but to some extent, he was over failing. He was over doing it the same way he had done it before. He knew failure, and so he knew better.

See, failure doesn’t take you away from your story — it is your story. Ever feel like you can’t last another second in plank, like you can’t possibly push harder when your trainer asks you to fight for it, like you’ve been away from bari for so long that you couldn’t possibly get back into it now? Those moments of discomfort are your fitness story. Your happiness begins with choosing a healthy body — one that doesn’t accept defeat.

If you’re not there at this moment, it’s time to get pissed. It’s time to get fed up. You heard me, it’s time for a comeback. Do it differently this time: get a coach, start private training just once a month, sign up for classes ahead of time so you have no choice and nail every single workout during bootcamp week.

This moment is not taking away from your story — this moment is your story.

1. You know the burpee, that thing we all love to hate? Turns out it’s named after one Royal H. Burpee, who used this exercise as a test to assess the fitness level of his patients in the 1930s. Nailed the burpee in class? You get a clean bill of health from Dr. Burpee. – greatist

2. Did you know there are two kinds of sweat? And only one of them smells. It is not the sweat you get from working out, but the sweat you get from being stressed that causes people to give you lots of space on the subway. – youbeauty

3. Want to actually detox your body? Eat broccoli and kale. Subjects who ate these two cruciferous vegetables were found to excrete higher-than-normal levels of benzene and acrolein, 2 harmful chemicals otherwise sitting as toxins in your body. - npr

4. Pulsation beds, vibration plates, oxygen chambers…meet the new kind of healing technique that New York City’s elite athletes swear by. – well + good

Happy hump day, Tribe! In need of a little mid-week inspiration and positivity? Here’s a round up of the little things that are making us happy this week.

- Mala Collective meditation beads! Still feeling the om from your #baripeel meditation practice? We’re loving the intentions behind the designs at Mala Collective. Simple, elegant and easy to use. Check out their blog for tips on choosing a mantra, choosing beads and how to put the two together.

Mala Collective Meditation Beads

- New sequence: Cannonball. It’s getting heart rates soaring higher and minds thinking faster. Check it out in barimacro and barihybrid!

- It’s officially summer which means: rooftop grilling! We don’t need the calendar to tell us it’s summer, all we need to do is step outside and catch the scent of someone’s outdoor grillfest to know summer has arrived. We love changing up how we eat our veggies and this week we’ve got a new way for you to eat your grilled corn!

- Lulitonix Chia Life. Delicious and filling and chia. We would drink this morning, noon and night if we could.

Chia Life

- Sam Smith’s cover of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know?” gives us all of the feelings. If you thought we were into this soulful singer before, be forewarned: we are officially obsessed. This cover will give you goosebumps and maybe make you cry. It’s THAT good.
