A Bit of Encouragement

I was perusing through my Facebook status updates when I spotted a friend who always has the most honest, inspiring, and uplifting things to say. And this was her status today:

“When I decided to get super serious about lifestyle changes and getting healthy, I could barely get through running for one minute and could not do a single pushup. Today my workout included running for 12 minutes straight and completing a mile in that time, and busting out 40 pushups. Find your motivation and run with it! Accept that you’ll have great days and bad days, big changes in a short period and standstills. You don’t have to pressure yourself by putting yourself in a time crunch. Getting and staying healthy is something that will last a lifetime, not something you work at for six months.”

It really spoke to me and made me feel like I wasn’t alone in my daily struggles to be healthy and fit. So I wanted to pass along the encouragement as I know there are so many others out there just taking it one day at a time just like me!!! So stay focused, don’t get discouraged, and keep going!!!
