Enjoy the Journey

Sunday, August 28, 2016

I bought a little turtle on my birthday that states, "Enjoy the journey." I move at a slow pace. I gained before I started to lose again. I joined WW again. I lose then gain, then gain, then lose again. I get down, then back up. And the most important thing is really to enjoy the journey. What can I learn from my good weeks? What can I learn from the less good weeks? Some of the weeks I gained were the best goal breaking step weeks I had. So I start exploring... how can I put it all together? Today, as my own coach, I will list what I enjoy about my journey.
1. I enjoy doing this with my husband.
2. I enjoy the challenges we make and picking out dates.
3. I enjoy catching pokemon and hatching eggs while walking. Something I did anyway but now with a little bonus.
4. I enjoy talking with my son while I walk.
5. I enjoy pushing myself to new limits.
6. I enjoy my husband's encouragements when I am down.
7. I enjoy trying new recipes and ways to cook things.
8. I enjoy rewarding myself for small victories.
9. I enjoy the feeling of overcoming an obstacle.
10. I enjoy the feeling of knowing I make progress no matter how small and no matter what the path looks like.

    Love this post! I totally agree...finding joy in the journey is very important. Id much rather have joy than to beat myself up all the time. After's a lifestyle change. I also love your gratitude affirmations!

    Thanks for posting this! I think we all need to slow down and enjoy the journey... part of losing weight is getting healthy for our family and friends. What good does it do if we are not enjoying our time with them.
