Shelf Esteem? Yup! Whether it be a shelf or a scrap book, or even just a journal, have somewhere that you can put your accomplishments. Celebrate even the smallest victories! You lose 1/2 a pound? CELEBRATE IT! Thinking, “But it was only half a pound!”, is silly! It IS a reason to celebrate! Because slow progress IS progress. Small victories add up to equal GREAT progress!
Remember that your health and fitness is something you are training for longevity! It is not just a sprint to a “happy ending”! There is no end! But along the way, you will see your first definition line in your bicep….TAKE A PICTURE! You may walk your first 5k….DISPLAY THE MEDAL! And the day you reach your FIRST goal? Your FINAL GOAL? Take note of these days! CELEBRATE and keep memoirs of them! I must admit, that I have not done this for many of my accomplishments, and therefore forget all of the AWESOME things I have done in my life. Especially since I began my “Road To Fitness Journey”.
Head UP! Shoulders BACK! Smile ON! Now get out there and take on the world!!!
