Better than I was
Monday, October 14, 2019
I've fallen victim to myself way too often comparing myself to the progress of others. I'd give up way too quickly if I didn't see immediate results. I'm learning to enjoy my slow progress because it it still progress. I'm eating better, I'm trying to work out 7 days a week but at least 5 days every week. I even forced myself to work out when I was sick. It wasn't much but some slow Pilates/stretching and mini walks helped to keep me going.
I'm better than I was last year. I'm better than I was last month. I'm better than I was yesterday. It hasn't been easy. I've wanted to give up too many times to count. I start over all the time. But I haven't given up. I'm still pushing myself forward, no matter how hard it feels. I may cuss and kick up a fuss but I'm still moving. The only thing that could stand in my way is myself and I'm stepping aside to allow myself to be the best me possible.
