I find that we rush ourselves in our progress towards our goals.
I know when I started my lifestyle in health and fitness 3 3/4 years ago...
I wanted to see change and results fast!
Little did I know...
I would learn the art of patience along the way.
Something I wasn't too good at in any aspect of my life. I always wanted things now. I didn't want to wait.
As I look back on how far I've come since the beginning of my lifestyle change...
I can tell you without hesitation that...
All of the progress I made didn't come overnight.
Actually, it came over many.many.and many more nights.
It took months before my metabolism kicked into gear! (And for me to really see the transformation I so desperately wanted on the day I got started! lol)
It is in those months that I learned something very important. (And that I still continue to learn more about and practice today!)
Patience to continue going.
Patience to allow your body to go at its own pace. (Especially when your mind thinks and wants things to go faster!)
Patience to give yourself the chance to see what consistency, commitment and dedication can amount to.
Patience to grow in all aspects of your life.
Patience to progress.
Patience to move forward.
And (but certainly not limited to)...
Patience to enjoy the moments in-between life and the goals you set before yourself.
|There is so much to savour in the road ahead that...|
We must make a conscious effort to slow down to enjoy and learn from it all.
All to say...
If I hadn't been patient with myself in my decision to get healthy then...
I know I wouldn't be where I am today.
|Happy and healthy!|
I can guarantee you that...
I'd be back on my couch.
|Anxiously awaiting a way to...|
Get healthy in 10 minutes.
With abs on the side ;)
Having shared all of that with you...
Here are a few things I patiently awaited to taste as I cooked or dined out in this edition of...
What I Ate Wednesday!
