Fitness, Friday, ya’ll.
Sometimes, we’re struggling to remember if we’re at least feeling better. It’s tough to stay motivated when we don’t see inches disappear or the scale’s not moving. For me, it’s helpful to take progress pictures, so I can connect with the other ways my fitness is improving.
For example, one of my 2016 goals is the Handstand. I’m keeping weekly pictures of my handstand progress. It lets me see that while the scale mightn’t be moving every week, I am in fact getting stronger.

Also, things like sleeping better, clearer skin, more energy and increased endurance when running or working can be the fine line between staying motivated or staying on the couch when checking in on your fitness goals.
So far, I am down 5 pounds for 2016, but I’ve been seriously consistent with teaching yoga twice a week and running/strength training three times a week. I make healthier choices for food, realizing that while chocolate everyday is an amazing thing, it’s not necessarily the thing that will get me to my goals.

how do you stay on track, despite feeling aggravated at the minor weight you’ve lost?
