“Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things.” Og Mandino
I failed miserably last week in meeting my goals. The thing I love about blogging is your are accountable for the good days and the bad and last week there were plenty of bad days! I only ran twice and I got in one good bike ride.....that is all!!! My knee was NOT feeling well and even then I did not do my PT exercises as I should nor did I use my foam roller every day. I need to make using that roller a number one priority. I cannot expect my knee to feel better if I am not doing everything I can to help the situation. Even though last week i did not reach my goals, I feel on top of the world! I have never felt happier and I am so pleased with my body and how my weight loss is going.
This weekend I was featured as a Former Fat Girl of the Week on a weight loss blog! You can see my before and after pics and read the blog here....
I was so honored and seeing my pictures on another page gave me a MUCH needed dose of Monday motivation!!
