I was reminded this week by something that I needed to hear…on Instagram “to find your daily wins”. Now this is not a new concept and I am not sharing with you something that you have never heard before. But if you are like me, and your day is filled with all the hustle bustle, you probably have little time in your day to recognize those wins. So why would taking time out to find your “daily wins” be important you ask?
Those wins are progress points that will lead you to your Goal!
Let’s face it the goals we set or the point we want to reach can be daunting. We all have doubts once we have decided on our path. Focusing on those daily wins , no matter how small, helps us to break down our large goal into manageable chunks. Those small wins each day help me to feel like I have accomplished something and motivate me to keep going.
Some of my Daily Wins this week-
-Fitting in a day to do weights/one legged exercises
-Pushing the Hill Workout- waking up very early to fit it in and pushing myself
-Made time to each lunch with a friend
-Catching up my calendar, listing daily mileage and work outs
-Putting up Christmas Tree, shopping for gifts
-Reaching my highest weekly running mileage= 38 miles
We always remember to review the failures. But do we really notice all of our daily wins? I challenge you to try this.
I survive by my lists. Do you make lists? A “To Do” list? I think this is another way to keep on track of our wins. Take that pen and cross it off, nothing is more satisfying that to cross something off my list.
Meal Prep today- Broccoli Soup, Roasted Potatoes, Curry Lentils with Spinach, Chia Pudding, Cashew Butter and Vegan Brownies.
Holiday treats? I need to get on it 🙂
LENTILS are high in protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates also a good source of iron, potassium, folate and manganese. Lentils come in a large variety of sizes and colors. Split lentils cook much faster and are good for use in curries. If you haven’t tried them for awhile I suggest you do.
Exercise- 38 miles running (what!) including pick ups, long run (17 miles) and a trail run/hike with elevation, and 1 day weights
Have a Healthy and Happy Week!
