DISCLAIMER (for the next few months):
That’s right folks, get ready for an onslaught of Biggest Loser posts. If you recall from last year, nurses have Grey’s Anatomy, teachers had Boston Public, attorneys and law enforcements agents have Law and Order, and music teachers have Glee. Well, trainers have The Biggest Loser.
Last night, one of the less recognized members of this year’s cast, Tumi, lost eight pounds, thus putting her under a weight of 300 lbs for the first time in awhile.
Compared to the weight loss of some of the other contestants, this was not astoundingly impressive; nevertheless, what Tumi said as she stood on the scale, resonated with me:
What a positive, self-affirming, just plain lovely attitude.
Compared to others, her weight-loss for this week may be minimal, but she’s better than she was two weeks ago. And that’s what matters…
What about you? Are you better than you were when you embarked on your fitness journey? Are you better than you were last year? Last month? Last week?
Remember: health isn’t only measure in physical growth; mental and spiritual gains can be more advantageous in your overall success as a human.
I’ve been at this CrossFit thing for quite some time now. The longer you’re at it, the more difficult it can be to obtain and recognize physical gains. In fact, two days ago I did an Open WOD from 2011 and got the exact same score. Physically, for the most part, I’ve remained the same; however, when I think of where I was a year ago, I have seen myself change mentally and spiritually.
Check~”I’m not the same person I walked in here as“.
Can you say the same?
