If you have a lot of weight to lose, or if you are training for your first 5K, 10K, half marathon, or marathon, etc., you may feel you have a super long way to go. That's ok. Sometimes our journeys are long -- as my dad would say "character building." That's a different way to look at it.
You're building/creating a new you & great things take time.
Every decision you make regarding your health today will change your tomorrow, whether for good or for bad. I have to keep that in mind every day!! This is a long journey for me & I want to win very, very badly!!! I'm getting closer to the halfway point with every day that passes.
There are going to be days where you have a slip-up. It's ok -- we're human & humans make mistakes. I have slip-ups too, I'm not immune to them.
Make yourself stronger after your mistakes by learning from them & continuing to move forward.
The most important thing you can do as you continue your journey is to enjoy every single moment!! Enjoy all of it -- the good, the bad, the ugly, the mistakes -- they're all part of you -- part of the lessons we learn about ourselves -- the scars that make us who we are.
Blessings to you!!
