These pics came up on my Facebook timeline a couple of days ago.
The pic on the left is from April 25th, 2013, the morning I went in to have my daughter. The pic on the right was taken in April 2014, 50 weeks after I had my daughter.
It was at my first bikini competition.
This was a goal of mine to help me lose the baby weight.
I absolutely love these pics.
I think this came to me at a really great time.
A time where it not only shows just what hard work can do for you, but it helps me remind myself just how far I have come.
And I think that is one of my biggest issues I need to work on.
I’m always looking to reach the next goal or looking to find a next goal, that I never sit back and appreciate all the hard work I do put in.
I also know I am not the only one who does this.
Most people I know are always striving to become better.
Striving for the next accomplishment.
Now, this is not bad in anyway, but if you are always looking forward towards the next goal, you will never appreciate what you have accomplished.
So I give you a challenge for the next couple of days.
Think back to a time where you hit a goal and was extremely proud of yourself.
Maybe it was fitting into an old pair of jeans you haven’t worn in months/years.
Maybe it was finishing a 5k/10k/half-marathon/etc, that you trained hard for.
Maybe it was hitting a PR with an exercise.
Whatever it is, think back to it and remember that feeling.
Be proud again for what you have accomplished!
