We are half way through the Fit by Labor Day Challenge! Wow! Can you believe it?
I’ve been reading several of your blogs and I’m so happy to see how wonderful many of you are doing! You guys ROCK! I love seeing change and I love that so many of you are reaching your goals and feeling better!
I also know there are some of you who are discouraged and feel like giving up. And you know what, I totally know how you feel! But…. we still have 4 weeks left! You can do still do a lot in 4 weeks so don’t give up! It’s most certainly, not too late!
If you’re using the journal I made you, you’ll see the quote for today is:
“There are only two choices- make progress or make excuses.” – Ellen Mikesell
That’s so true isn’t? Life is about choices. Working out, eating healthy is a choice. Life is determined by choice after choice, decision after decision.
Before you are about to eat something, do something, drink something, ask yourself this- Will this (enter activity here) bring me one step closer or one step further away form my goal?
I hope it’s one step closer!
I encourage you to take a half way picture of yourself. Compare it to your “starting” picture 4 weeks ago and see where you’re at. Seeing progress may give you the motivation to keep going or see a lack thereof might also encourage you!
My question for you guys this week is What is your motivation? Why do you want to lose weight? What is your driving force? Thinking about this can help remind us why we’re doing what we’re doing and what it means for us.
A few things that motivate me are:
- I want to be healthy for my family
- I want to set a good example for Lucas
- I want to be able to chase after him and run around with him
- I want to look good
- I want to feel good
- I want to live a long life
What motivates you?
I would really love to know how you guys are doing! If you’re up for it, please let me know in the comments how your progress is going. Or if you wrote about it this week leave your post url in Mr Linky!
I hope everyone has a great week!
