Motivational Monday: Better Than Yesterday

This is a great mantra when you feel like you are doing your best and you are not seeing a difference. There are differences, even if you can’t sense them. Sometimes I like to peruse sites featuring before and after pictures (MotiveWeight being one of my favorites) just to gain some perspective and motivation based on the success of other individuals. It always amazes me when I read a story about how the person didn’t feel like they had made any progress.. then compared a recent picture to an older one to realize, they had in fact made great improvements. Keeping this mantra in mind will remind you that even though you can’t see it, doesn’t mean you’re not improving. You may be getting in extra reps, or can increase the weight. You might feel less tired on a run, and are able to run that extra mile. You may even be able to hold plank longer, or reach a new yoga pose variation. Whatever you do, keep going, don’t give up! You are better than yesterday.. and think how much better you’ll be in a week, a month, a year! The sky is the limit!
