Yesterday morning I looked in the mirror and was shocked by what I saw! I saw progress! I saw a smaller stomach, I saw more defined curves! I was so excited I had to take pictures so that I could see the difference! Initially I was SUPER proud of the changes I saw! Then the more I looked at the pictures, the more I could only see how much further I have to go. Sometimes it is so hard to just be happy with the progress that has been made and not pick apart the work left to do! It’s hard to remember that you’ve only been on top of your nutrition for 2 weeks when you’ve been going to the gym regularly for months. It’s easier to beat yourself up for the bad choices than it is to celebrate your accomplishments. We have to stop this. EVERY SINGLE step in the right direction is a win! Sometimes it’s 3 steps forward and 2 steps back, but that is still 1 step forward! Losing 8+ pounds and 11+ inches in 2 weeks is a success in my book! 6 more weeks until the Tone It Up tour!!!!
I was letting my head win last night and didn’t want to workout, I didn’t want to make the effort. Luckily I have people in my corner that push me when I’m just not feeling it! I had two people talking to me and encouraging me to get it done last night! Thankfully I did or I would be regretting it and beating myself up today!
