IF you’re anything like me.. you have a tendency to criticise yourself over your performance. Be it how well you did in your workout, how much weight you lost, if you could have did this better or that.. or just something. Sometimes we do need that voice to push us to do more each time we go out to accomplish something but we sometimes lose that voice that should be congratulating us for the job we did do.
When it comes to losing weight, its easy to get disappointed because you didn’t lose the 5lbs that you wanted to lose. But if you still lost something that day, week or month.. take a moment and enjoy that. You made progress. It wasn’t what you expected or what you thought you needed but you moved forward. Take that for what it is. A step forward. You did something, when you could have been doing absolutely nothing, you got a result (Even if its not THE result you wanted) and it was a positive one at that. This puts you ahead of the curve because you’re doing something, insted of nothing.
Like Jeff Olson say’s in his hit book “The Slight Edge“,
“It’s easy to do. And it’s easy not to do. And if you don’t do it, it won’t kill you or destroy your chances for success today. But that simple error in judgement, compounded over time, will kill your chances for success. It will take you down and out of your life forever. And that choice is always yours.”
So if you did your workout today, if you made the right choice when it came to your nutrition, even if you didn’t feel like it made a difference. I would personally like to say congratulations, keep up the good work!
