So the healthy reflection today really hit me over the head, especially with the entry from last week about working with my issues. It's so easy to let our personal limitations shut us down, or use them as an excuse. Making peace with ones limitations is a difficult thing, especially when those limits are constantly changing. But every baby step gets you closer and closer to your end goal.

Know your limits...but never stop trying to exceed them.

Overcoming your personal "stop signs"

Many of us use our "limitations" as a stop sign for reaching our goals. While knowing our limits can safeguard us against injury and embarrassment, too often we use them as avoidance methods in our lives. What is holding you back from reaching your goals? How can you push beyond your comfort zone in a healthy way? Many dieters experience such limitations in on their weight loss journeys. Our bodies and minds are capable of overcoming much more than we could ever imagine if we just try. Today set new goals that may push you a little. Overcoming your personal hang ups and fears may be one of the most rewarding choices you'll ever make!

Edit: So I decided to overcome myself today, and push a little bit - I did a 15 min walk when I got home and did my 'firecracker circuit' for some strength training - 2 sets of lunges, squats, push-ups and crunches. I've got a goal for this week, and being a bum today wasn't going to get me any closer to it. HOpefully getting the juices flowing will help ease up the soreness from yesterday.
