It can’t measure the courage it took for you to sign up for the challenge in the first place. It can’t measure the determination you put into each and every workout. It can’t measure the pride you felt completing 10, 12, and 14 miles in a week or how you felt reaching for the heavier kettlebell. It can’t measure your surprise and joy when you realized you could do a box jump, a push-up, a pull-up! A scale can’t measure the knowledge you gained about clean eating. It can’t measure how your body felt when you started giving it the things it needed. It can’t measure the example you’re setting for your children and loved ones by having a healthy lifestyle and taking care of yourself. It most certainly can’t measure the camaraderie and support among our team!
So as our challenge comes to an end, go ahead and check out the scale. Look at the numbers and inches. Be amazed and proud of your accomplishments! Then take a step back, speak to yourself with kindness, and look at all of the other ways there are to measure yourself besides a physics equation. Congratulations to everyone!!!
