When it comes to exercise, progress may not always be shown on the scale. Too many times, people look at the numbers to tell them whether they are doing better or worse. It easy to forget that progress towards a healthier life can be measured in the way you feel. Can you move a little easier through the day, do you feel stronger climbing a flight of stairs or picking up the kids? Do you breathe better doing a particular activity, and can you spend more time being active? Exercise is tough in the beginning but staying consistent with it yields results such as stronger muscles which allows more blood flow to all those working muscles and a more efficient body! But all of this starts with a good attitude! You have to believe that you can do all these things and then start putting your ideas into practice. If you slip up, it’s okay..everyone has done it before. Refocus yourself and continue down this road to a healthier you.
One of my favorite quotes from a movie called the Great Debaters is “We do what we have to do so that we can do what we want to do”. Do what you have to do over the next 24 weeks so that you can do what you want to do throughout your life and keep a positive attitude in the process! Keep up the great work!
