I walked past the mirror yesterday and it reminded me about the post I was ranting and raving over the 'ULTIMATE' yoga leggings by PINK. --I am still OBSESSED with them by the way and would recommend them in a heart beat) I was in about the same pair so I thought I would take a pic and compare them side by side……. 6 Weeks ago to now!
(I wish I wasn't flexing my butt so hard in the previous pic but I can't change that now, LOL!). Not a huge difference but I know my body best to see the small changes in my waist and legs (I have been loving those body weight 'active rest' exercises following a leg exercise) and I have no clue what I weigh. Slow progress is better than no progress. My point is, you have to keep going! Just because drastic changes don't happen in 3 or 6 months, doesn't mean just throw in the towel and give up. If you had a flat tire would you fix the flat one and keep driving? Or slash the other 3 tires and walk? Forget looks, think of the healthy goodness you are doing for your heart and those muscles!
Why do I workout so hard? The same reasons you put on eye cream at night? I honestly do it because I want to keep up with life as I get older. I want to be fit. I want to have a strong heart and get all the muscle I can get before aging starts taking that muscle away from me wether I like it or not. Yes, I do it too so I can look good and feel good about myself. But now as I am getting older, I am realizing that staying fit and getting stronger is WAY more important to me. My body doesn't respond like it did in my 20s. And I am sure that when I reach my 40s I am wishing I had the body that I had in my 30s. Funny thing though….. I am pretty sure that today at 32 I could kick my 25 year old A$$.
DONT GIVE UP!
