Day 22: Check Your Progress
You have a couple of weeks under your belt – how’s it going?! Are you keeping up with your exercise, nutrition, journaling, support systems? Take your time…. as they say ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’. More importantly, focus on what is working for you – the choices you’ve made to succeed!
Remember, this is just the beginning – big things are happening! It may seem a little slow, maybe even reversed, as your body begins to acclimate to your new, healthy lifestyle. Just hang out and let it happen – be patient, be kind to yourself, continue to make great choices. Underneath it all, you are a healthy person. Focus on that. The more you bring into the fold, the more you will become the fit, healthy, strong person you long to be.
Build on each week, noticing your strengths and what’s working for you. If you feel something isn’t working for you, modify it or change it – bring in something better!! A lot of this is trial and error. Follow your intuition, listen to your body, feel your body. Stay focused on all the great benefits you will have by being consistent for a month or two.
