Acknowledge and appreciate your progress, but don’t let it come to a halt. You can always learn something new to improve your eating habits, you can always improve your technique during your workout.
As Daft Punk would say “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. Our work is never over.”
Today I want to share a fitness motivational video by Nike. It’s a bit long, at 3m25s, but I believe it’s totally worth the time.
“This is the battle royale between you, and your mind, and your body, and devil on your shoulder.”
I have progressed further than I could ever have dreamt I would.
I ended completely changing my lifestyle, and my body had no choice but to follow.
It was a process – in several ways it still is – , and a very challenging one. Therefore it’s not all smooth sailing, but as long as we’re willing to do the work, it’s perfectly achievable.
Recently one of my gym instructors shared this on her facebook page:
People don’t see all that we go through when journeying from overweight to healthy. Those who have not underwent this transformation tend to disregard what they don’t see and believe it’s an easy process. It truly isn’t.
Also, as I’ve talked about on my post about Setbacks, disappointment and failure are part of the journey. We should accept them and learn from them, instead of giving-up because of them.
