Works In Progress

by Alessandra Cavalluzzi

We all have those days when we feel like we are “stuck”.  We set a goal for ourselves, start out with the best intentions, and then somewhere along the way we get sidetracked for whatever reason.  Maybe it’s a project that has stalled, or we hit a plateau on our fitness journey, or we slip back into an old habit that we are trying to break.   These “stallers” tend to have a negative effect on how we see ourselves.

Here’s what you need to remember:  it’s a marathon, not a sprint.  Transformation doesn’t happen overnight.  It’s a journey.  You are a work in progress.  So am I.  We all are.   From time to time we are going to falter.  It’s ok.  Don’t be so rough on yourself.    Get back on track the next day, and commit to doing your best every day.  Above all, adopt an attitude of gratitude.  Find one thing to be thankful for each day.  It will change your attitude and foster a positive mindset – which will help you get through the tougher days.
