It’s Motivation Monday, and all I’m asking this week is that you make one step forward, to become better this week than you were last week. You choose what that means for you – one additional workout this week, some extra sleep, one small diet change, a faster time on your regular running loop, or an effort to help someone out who may need it. Remember – life is not a race against anyone but yourself, and neither is fitness/ nutrition/ healthy living. It can be easy to compare yourself to others who are faster, stronger, thinner, healthier, eat or work out differently than you do. But all you have to do is be the best you can be!
And even while you’re striving to get better, remember this quote that my father-in-law shared with me last week: “Perfection may be a goal, but one is not ever supposed to achieve it.”
If all this is a bit too fluffy for your Monday morning and you’re looking for something to read, head over to yesterday’s post, which gave my thoughts on artificial sweeteners, or my Twitter and Facebook pages, where I link to some interesting health-related articles.
So tell me in the comments … what will you do this week to make yourself better than you were yesterday?
