And Iโ€™ll be honest for the longest time I wasnโ€™t… โฃ
at all. โฃ
โฃ
But then as I slowly got my shit together, I started to feel pieces falling into place. โฃ
Yet I remained terrified to admit that I was in fact happy. โฃ
โฃ
Maybe it was the thought that my world would come crashing down if I did admit it… โฃ
Maybe it was guilt for everyone I knew who was struggling…โฃ
But I found myself purposely starting to search for things that were going wrong instead of ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ซ๐˜ฐ๐˜บ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ everything that was going right. โฃ

We live in a world that thrives off of being busy, stressed, unhappy, pissed off. โฃ

If youโ€™re notโ€ฆโฃ
Are you not working hard enough? โฃ
Are you just lucky? โฃ

โฃ
But for the most part I am genuinely happy. Because I choose to be. Every day. And you can too. โฃ

Something about moving had me terrified about maintaining my progress. โฃ
โฃ
In the past, Iโ€™ve let moving get me completely off track with my fitness journey. โฃ

Couple that with the end of our 100 day program, a change in my gym schedule, and I knew it could easily be a recipe for disaster. โฃ

And no matter how many times as I told myself that, my heart still sank a bit when I saw the number. โฃ
โฃ
Immediately I started to compare myself to all of the other women in the test group with me. โฃ
I started to question where I couldโ€™ve done things differently. โฃ
โฃ
In the past I wouldโ€™ve let that number consume me. ๐๐š๐ซ๐š๐ฅ๐ฒ๐ณ๐ž ๐ฆ๐ž. And likely derail me completely off track. โฃ

It doesnโ€™t measure how much stronger I got. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much faster I got. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much more energy I have. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much better I sleep. โฃ
It doesnโ€™t measure how much my mindset has shifted. โฃ
And it most certainly doesnโ€™t measure my confidence or self worth. โฃ
โฃ
So whether it was 5lbs down or 50, I no longer let one number negate or determine my hard work. โฃ
โฃ
I took note of the number, hopped off, and went on with my day. โฃ
