This was one of my absolute favorite take-aways from my event with Shaun T this morning! We are often so driven by physical transformations (5lbs to lose before a wedding, 10lbs to lose before a holiday, 100lbs to lose to get healthy, 20lbs to lose to fit into your old jeans - sound familiar?!!) that we forget what is truly important, and that is how we actually FEEL along the way. .
If you have followed me for a while, you'll know that I haven't had a crazy physical transformation over the past two years. I do have much stronger abs now and a slightly different body shape, but I wasn't unfit before I started Beachbody. However, I definitely FEEL different since starting the programs and even more so since becoming a fitness coach and instructor. I have more energy (consistently!), I am stronger, I am more confident in all aspects of my life and I have more drive and motivation. .
How about you? How do YOU feel? Maybe you have started your fitness journey, or maybe you are just thinking about getting started (if the latter, the first step is by far the hardest, I promise!). You might be working towards losing 10lbs but feel down on yourself because you aren't there yet, or you might be 50lbs over your 'target weight' but feel great anyway because you are exercising, eating healthy, have zest for life and are enjoying life and working towards your goals. EMBRACE THAT FEELING WHETHER YOU ARE AT YOUR GOAL OR WORKING TOWARDS IT! .
Health and fitness are a LIFE LONG journey and we need to be present and even with the ups and downs, the struggles and setbacks, we must make sure that we do our best to embrace how we feel and make the most of every single step along the way 😍.
