Letters to Myself - Issue #1

Dear Me,

You've worked your ass off for the past 3 weeks.  You are getting ready to start up week #4!

Wow!  I can't believe you've been working out for 3 full weeks already.  You go girl!

You look better, you feel better, you are stressed less (and not so cranky) and you're sleeping much better in such a short time.  Your energy level is outstanding!  Think of all the projects you've completed these past few weeks.

But Melissa, you kind of sucked this weekend.  You didn't make it to run and you ate some not so good things and drank a good amount of wine.  That's ok though, you have to cheat every once and a while I guess.

Stay focused on your goals.  Stay focused on why you are doing this.

After all...

Yes, you have to cheat every once in awhile otherwise you'll end up going to the extreme in the opposite direction. Keep up the good work!

New workout clothes or shoes is always SUCH a motivation for me! Not sure why, but it is! xo

I really love the idea of a letter to yourself. What a brilliant idea!!

And yes, you deserve a little time to "cheat". You have to tale care of yourself mentally, emotionally AND physically. If you're already kicking butt in the latter, take some time to work on the former. You deserve it and have earned it!

Way to go, girl. I'm so proud of you!
