Are you getting frustrated and feeling like you’re putting in all the work but aren’t seeing the results you’ve been expecting? Yet? Here are four ways that your fitness is improving that you may not have even noticed:
- You have more energy.
You’re finding it easier to wake up in the morning. You aren’t suffering from 3.30itis. You are no longer reaching for a second cup of coffee. Such seemingly small things, but all are good signs that your health and fitness is improving.
- You look forward to your workouts.
It’s been stressful at work so you look forward to your workout. You find yourself getting excited to get to class. Both are brilliant signs that you’re making progress. Remember that it’s about the small victories. Maybe when you started, you were only able to do a few half squats, but now you can do 20 full squats without breaking a sweat. That is a great sign of progress!
- You’re able to do more cardio, for longer periods of time.
This is a great way to see your fitness level improving! If you’re able to take the stairs at work without getting out of breath, or if you’re able to run longer without needing to stop, that’s another sign that your fitness is improving. You can walk someone on a hot day and don’t break a sweat so easy now? It’s actually easier and your body is more efficient. Cool huh??
- You have more mental clarity
You’re finding it easier to focus on your work throughout the day. You find it easier to stay motivated during a long day at work. You can concentrate, and you can retain lots of information. Yes, fitness helps your brain function too, and the healthier you are, the more that helps your mental clarity too. And hey, if your brain is improving, how can you go wrong!?
Have you noticed any of these in yourself? Be sure to CELEBRATE all of these victories… Remember, they all add up to helping you live your healthiest, best life.
