How do you measure success?
When I started my fitness journey almost a year ago, I always followed the number on the scale to measure my success.
However, over the course of this year, I've learned so much more.
This picture is me...real and in the moments. On the left was taken in June at the Spartan race.
On the right, was taken this October at the Bellin Women's race.
You see, the thing is...I am the same weight in both pics (maybe a couple lbs less), but what it boils down to is:
❤《Am I in love? --yes, since I am waiting. The other one never waits. Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn't wait; I try to busy myself elsewhere, to arrive late; but I always lose at this game. Whatever I do, I find myself there, with nothing to do, punctual, even ahead of time. The lover's fatal identity is precisely this: I am the one who waits.》

Basking in the sun is not something I often do
Taking it all in....a liberty that's cherished by few
The rains are calling but today is just a pretty sunny day
Let me enjoy this moment seldom do they come my way
For a moment it crossed my mind ... "I wish I could freeze this frame"
However life has to move on stagnations have never been part of the game ...
Back to reality but it's not all that bad ..
sometimes your on top of things & sometimes it's a free fall down to shame,something you wished you never had ;
As life still goes on no matter what you do and how you feel
The disparity in life is extreme where a few can lie on their laurels
while the majority have to find a way to get their daily meal.
This rule is eminent however harsh as it may seem
As reality is a struggle out there ..how you wish you could just reside in your favorite dream... Start the year with a bang guys !!! #happynewyear#Inspiration#monochrome#workhard#sweatitout#itsdiwali#ISSAcertified#shocxfit#fightnginjuries#staystrong#dedication &discipline#healthbeingpriority#nutrition#bepatient#burningcaloriesnotcrackers #
Evolution is the GRADUAL development of something.
In this day and age when a lot can be accomplished by a few taps on the smartphone, it's easy to forget that our physiology hasn't changed much over the past few thousand years. Technology has made the human race impatient.
I believe that GRADUAL developments done consistently is what makes lasting progress. Gradual progress is not as sexy as a 6 week body transformation or a 3 month bikini body ready program but it is what really works in the long run.
