Today, my body doesn't look exactly the same as it did three weeks ago, that's because I made the decision back then to do something different. Three weeks from now, my body will be different than it is today. I'll be grateful to "present me" for choosing to consistently say "yes" to getting my body in motion.

Here's where it gets interesting. I've gone through bursts of motivation in the past and worked out for a few weeks, or months, then stopped. So this time I'm thinking about how I'll create longevity and sustainability in my habits. In the past, I've worked out with one purpose in mind. To tighten up. And once I get there, I stop doing what I did to get there. That's why I really love the comment that Girl_Ingogneto left in my first post about having fitness goals rather than appearance related goals.
With this strategy in mind, I can always be inspired to elevate my fitness levels no matter what my body looks like. Honestly, that's what exactly I want. I would like to make fitness a new way of life. Correction.....I AM making fitness a new way of life.
