Why Feeling Accomplished is a Big Fitness Deal

I love feeling accomplished. Can you relate? Completing a hard workout, especially on days when motivation is lacking, really earns a clap for yourself. 

I can also feel pretty awesome after finishing a chore not so fabulous like cleaning the bathroom. Yuck, right? But it has to be done. Checking things off your 'to do' list should provide a great feeling of accomplishment.

Nothing feels better than a job well-done. The thing about personal goals in and out of the gym is how they belong to us. I don't need or seek anyone’s approval to feel accomplished. Neither should you. What matters most is what you do on a daily basis to achieve your goals and to feel good in the process. 

Great questions to ask yourself: 
Some of us get caught up competing with others, comparing to others, and wanting to be like others. This behavior causes you to miss out on your own accomplishments. Life is really too short to live someone else's dream and try to walk their walk. Who really knows what goes on behind the closed doors of anyone’s walk. The only walk known for certain is your own, right? 

Wasting your swagger trying to be someone else, or constantly compare would never lead to feeling self-accomplished. Focusing energy on things you have control over and working towards your own goals is what creates a healthy life. There is nothing better than striving for your own feeling of accomplishment. 

Sometimes it can take years to grasp this concept and is often learned through your journey of life. The important thing is finally coming to the point of loving yourself enough to be proud of your accomplishments. Big or small, it all counts. Did you finish the laundry today? Get in that workout? Cook a healthy meal? Stay on track with your fitness program? Celebrate those things.

Feeling accomplished doesn't have to be some news-making off the charts event.  It's the small everyday things done on a daily basis providing that feeling of accomplishment. The beautiful part about this feeling is it coming from within.

We often fail to give ourselves enough credit for all we do making our lives healthier and happier. Why is that? Small steps create big results and done over time, a quality life.

So beauties, if you worked out, cleaned the house, tried a healthy recipe, ate clean for the day, or drank water instead of soda, you should feel accomplished. It will be the things you do consistently that will bring accomplishment and create a healthy lifestyle.

What is depression?

Depression is a common yet complex mental health condition affecting more than 16 million adults and 3 million adolescents in the US each year. People with depression feel sad, empty, or hopeless much of the time. It’s more than a case of the blues; depression looms like a storm cloud that won’t let sunshine peak through. It saps the joy of being with friends and family. People can lose interest in hobbies, sex, and other pleasurable activities, and they may have trouble eating or sleeping.

Some cases of depression have a genetic component, but lots of factors beyond an inherited tendency can spur and aggravate depression symptoms, including various environmental factors.

Sometimes people don’t acknowledge or recognize depression in themselves or others, so they fail to seek help from a health care professional. But without treatment, depression can linger for weeks or months–sometimes years–and can lead to worsening symptoms. Depression can wreck lives, friendships, and marriages and p…

Reduce Sugar Intake to Get Fit, Healthy, and Reduce Body Fat - Day 30 New Year, New You

Are you eating too much sugar? Many of us may not even realize hidden sugar is contained in many foods being consumed. Also, much of the food we eat is converted into sugar.

Is the Latest Fitness Trend—Here’s Why That’s a Problem

Quick, what comes to mind when you think of a marriage proposal? Probably a man on bended knee. Well, now you need to add a lady doing squats to that image of betrothal bliss. Because the new trend out there is something called “proposal shape.” Yes, that’s right: Before you’re a shredded bride, you now need to be a fit fiancée.

It’s no longer enough to be skinny when you say “I do.” A number of today’s women are pressuring themselves to be hard-bodied by the time they say “Yes.” As in, “Yes, I’ll marry you! Just let me do a few burpees before we take a selfie so I can tighten my glutes in this fantastically new, flattering bodycon dress I happened to throw on even though I had absolutely no idea you were going to propose this evening! Hold my kettlebell.”

Proposal shape is a tight and curvy metaphor for how out of whack our expectations of the whole wedding process are and the ridiculous pressure women place on themselves during the whole bridal experience. Girlfriends who are pre-f…
