I definitely think I have noticed and remembered this a lot lately. I keep reminding myself that I have made progress in many ways than one. My diets still not perfect, but it will probably never be or I'll never be a hundred percent happy with my decisions. Who knows! But I have been trying to work out regularly and I have a great example of that today in fact.
Today I woke up with a terrible stomach and I was definitely not feeling a hundred percent. But I was determined to get a workout in today. Like a good solid workout where I pushed myself and had sweat dripping, but I fancied doing a workout dvd instead of the treadmill. And so I ended up choosing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and doing Level 2, which I have never done before. The verdict is good! I know level 1 of the 30 Day Shred off by heart so it was nice to have a change and I guess time also. But I had a couple of Jaffa Cakes before hand because I was starving and it was 10:30, so I needed some sugar energy. But I am not normally one to eat before a workout, not straight before anyways and especially not in the mornings. I know I do this for a reason, but I knew it would be then or never to workout today. The bottom line is that even though I didn't feel my best physicallly, mentally I was so strong which allowed me to push through it. It's such a small victory but I hope I look back on it in weeks to come as some sort of defining moment :-D
