Finding success along the way

From Staying Motivated

People who try to do something and fail
are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.
Experiencing failure is inevitable on your journey to be successful.
Every defeat is merely an installment to victory.

Oh how true is that and so helpful to remember when trying to get in shape with little success. I’ve had some success but for me right now to really feel any success is to have even just a slow constant change that never takes a step backwards.

Monday I get back into my workout classes that really kick my ass. I don’t have any days off for a bit so I really need to take advantage of it. I mean if I’m going to spend 45 minutes a day sweating my ass off and swearing to myself it might as well be for a real accomplishment. Yeah the first accosmplishment is actually just going to the class but after that it’s seeing progress.

First –> You feel better
Second –> You look better
Third –> You are healthier

Still in order to keep up the momentum I need to keep motivated myself and find little successes for myself.

    I made myself sign up for a yoga class again. When I do it at home alone, I don’t always do it.

    Motivation can be so difficult!!!

    What’s your sign? Up for a go up myself again?
    When I do it at home alone, I always do it.
    Difficulties can be so motivating!
