Do you see it?
That goal you set earlier this year.
Is it still in your line of sight?
I have been spending quite a bit of time this week reviewing the goals that I mapped out for myself personally and professionally for 2014.
And I had a major epiphany. I am really stinkin proud of myself in one particular area.
No, I’m not bragging, or stroking my own ego, or being arrogant! (If you REALLY know me, you know I’m SO not like that).
Just sharing something I realized after my workout last night.
Outside of building and growing my business, one of my big goals for this year was to improve my overall fitness.
After an injury I sustained from training for a half marathon in March, I decided to just work on 1) recovering and then 2) add lean muscle and reduce my body-fat percentage (originally just to make me a better runner).
So, I started lifting weights.
It seemed literally impossible at first. I was always a champ at cardio, but my muscles felt weak.
OH the soreness! OH feeling like I was going to faint /passout / die! (wait, that’s still there 🙂 LOL)
But I kept pressing forward, taking it one workout at a time.
And, I have worked out consistently 5-6 days a week for most of this year.
I have tried to eat only foods from God or close to it (unrefined, organic, gluten-free if possible).
And you know what?
I feel AMAZING. Strong. Confident. Sexy. Beautiful.
And my transformation has come SLOWLY. And I still have a WAYS to go.
Sure I still have my “fat” days. Or my “this isn’t working” days.
But mostly, I have my, “look at how much I can bench-press & deadlift” days! And “wow, I am sure enjoying right where I am in this amazing journey” days.
Nothing good ever comes easy.
Maybe it’s time for you to take a pulse on the progress you have made on your goals this year.
If you didn’t have any, it’s never too late to start.
And when you do…DO NOT FORGET TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE.
You are so VERY worth it!
Left is Jan 2014. Right is last week. ALWAYS a work in progress!!!
