I like to look at every day as a new opportunity to be my best self. It's all about those baby steps to get us just a tad closer to where we want to be whether it be mentally, physically, or spiritually. One goal I'm working towards every day, besides being healthy and fit, is to be more patient. Impatience runs through my veins, so the phrase "patience is a virtue" is sometimes very foreign to me. In a quick fix world, my impatience has become ingrained in my very DNA. To retrain and to get me to be more patient, I have to take tiny, tiny steps to get me to where I would like to be in 2016. I KNOW that consistency and determination will get me closer to where I want to be.
Fitness and getting to your best self will never be that "one giant leap." It really has to be an on-going consistent and even an never ending "grind" to your best self. Not easy, not at all. That is why I mentally give each workout my 100%. This goes hand in hand with my nutrition. My hope is to inspire or motivate you to getting to your best 2016 self. Let's do this and give it 100%!
