Progress comes with Patients and Patients comes with Time👏
Over the weekend, I noticed myself getting very frustrated over my progress, or what I look at as lack of progress. I was beating myself down over not seeing huge weight loss, inches dropping off, success in my daily workouts, not feeling motivated, not feeling proud of my journey. All of these things were constantly in my head and then I realized something
I am 5 weeks into this 6 week program which means that I will be completing this program in a short time, but instead of ending my journey there....I will be doing this program again. However, this time, I have made goals and mindset accomplishments for myself so I can truly be successful. I have learned many things from this round and I am very excited to start the next with some changes I think will allow me to be more successful.
No, I haven't made as much progress as I maybe "should have", I haven't lost as much weight as I "should have", I have eaten things I "shouldn't have." But I LIVED my life, I showed up for myself whether that meant being 100% on my nutrition or taking 3 naps a day, I listened to my body. Sure there were times I let my mind take over and win with lack of motivation, but I still did my best to show up for myself.
My journey is a journey because it takes time, it takes patients, it takes accountability, it takes self-love and persistence. I wont give up when things get hard and I wont think that I am not making the progress I "should" because I made a promise to myself to work on my self-worth❣
